Releasing the Lower Back
Managing Back Pain
Melting Joint Blockages & Care for the Upper Body
Head, Neck & Pelvis Connections
Full Body Integration

Nirmala has carefully put together a complete full-body Myofascial Stretching package.

Targeted sessions include 1) Pelvis, hips and lower back. 2) Spine. 3) Upper back and shoulder joints. 4) Cranium-sacrum connections and 5) A full-body integration session. By gentling and slowly stretching the connective tissues of the body, you can improve your posture and sense of well-being, experiencing a deeper connection with yourself. Myofascial Stretching is a holistic practice which affects the entire body and mind.

In our daily life we face many challenges and difficult situations: Body pain from sitting or standing long hours, difficult relationships & health issues of the body and mind.

Myofascial Stretching is a holistic method that releases physical and emotional tensions.

What are people saying?

I feel great!

Nancy, USA

What was my favorite part of this workshop? The instructor's sweet manner, the clarity of the instructions and the way I feel after having done the practice! I do a lot of yoga so I didn't expect such simple stretching to do much, but I found it definitely relaxed my entire body! I'm a little surprised and look forward to integrating the technique into my daily routines. The effect is much like that of a good, deep meditation session. Thank you!

Getting relief!

John, Australia

Thank you for making these learnings available online. I am so enjoying it. I currently have hip flexor pain in both hips and sciatica in right leg and I am getting relief after the stretch. The content was wonderful and I also appreciated the production quality of the videos--really quite beautiful. I look forward to taking more sessions from AVA.

Professionally done!

Fran, Denmark

I would like to say how well put together I felt the course and introduction to it were. Fairly simple to follow what to do. I thought that the quality of production was really good and it all felt very professionally done. Thank you.
