The 675-Hour Massage Therapy Certification Program is designed to give students a solid foundation in the fundamentals of massage and bodywork therapy, supported by an in-depth understanding of the sciences behind massage: anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, and pathology. Days of Mindfulness and Self-care are woven into the curriculum to give time to integrate and process the rich psychic material that can arise during the training. The Asheville School of Massage & Yoga is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork as a continuing education provider.

Special features of our program include:
A YOGA-CENTERED EDUCATION


Yoga is a core element of our program and is incorporated into every course in the curriculum. The ethics of ancient yoga (yamas and niyamas) are similar and complimentary to the modern ethical standards for the massage and bodywork profession. An in-depth study of the yamas and niyamas will strengthen students' respect and understanding of ethics in their field.

The practice of yoga asana (postures), pranayama (breathwork), and meditation, will help students to develop a keen sense of body awareness, deepen their understanding of anatomy and kinesiology, learn proper body mechanics for injury prevention, be familiar with stretches to help themselves and their clients with self-care, and hone their ability to focus, ground, and center.

Yoga teaches ethics, proper body mechanics, self-care as a therapist, increases body awareness, and is a valuable tool to help clients both on and off the table. The yoga-centered education offered by the Asheville School of Massage & Yoga is ideal for students who appreciate the use of yoga as a teaching tool.
