Integrated massage also known as eclectic massage, is a therapeutic method that combines the principles of massage and bodywork.

Different hands-on techniques are used in integrated massage to promote physiological changes. This is achieved by primarily focusing on the fascial system or the body’s connective tissue.

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but with the deeper pressure which is beneficial in relieving chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia.

Sports massage may utilize a variety of techniques such as classical Swedish Massage, trigger point therapy, and hydrotherapy. Prior to an athletic event, Sports Massage may be used with stretching in order to help athletes to loosen, warm and prepare their muscles. Following an athletic event, Sports Massage may be used to relieve pain, prevent stiffness, and return the muscles back to their normal state. Sports Massage may also be used for injury rehabilitation.

    About Gloria
    Gloria is the current (2014), as well as 2012-2013, Women’s International Yoga Asana Champion. She is the only two time winner of the Bishnu Charan Ghosh Cup.

    As a former high school track and cross-country runner, dedicated road racer and two-time marathon finisher, mileage had caught up to her body and Gloria decided to look for a lower impact physical activity that would not sacrifice in intensity. Yoga seemed like a good idea! Upon moving to Singapore in 2008 for work, a former colleague connected Gloria with her champion cousin, Ky Ha, who had also just moved there to teach Bikram Yoga. About three weeks after she started practicing, Ky convinced her to sign up for a “yoga championship” taking place six months later. Thus, the championship has been an integral part to her yoga journey – from both physical and spiritual aspects.

Fluid Vinyasa Teacher Traning


The Fluid Yoga Teacher Training Program is designed to help you acquire the confidence, skills and expertise necessary to become a registered yoga teacher, guiding yourself and others toward a happier, healthier and more fulling practice both on and off the mat.

Module 1 Fluid Mind and Spirit
January 28th – 31st, 2016/8am – 6pm

Understand the ways in which Tibetan Buddhist mind training can help one become more present, adaptable to change and ultimately happier. Meditations that we will be learning include shamatha, loving kindness and tong-len. Through a study of the Six Paramitas in the Bodhisattva’s Way of Living, we will examine how moving effortlessly though life can create happiness both within ourselves and throughout our environment. Khenpo Lama Migmar will be visiting us to give a discourse on Buddhist philosophy. He is currently the Buddhist Chaplain for Harvard University , Head of the Sakya Center in Cambridge, MA and Philosophical Adviser to Fluid Yoga. Also, in Module 1, we will start learning the fundamentals of cuing, learn the basics of Fluid Yoga, sequencing Pyramid and how to teach Sun Salutations. You will be given a 90 minute Fluid Yoga Sequence to learn as a model for your teaching.

Module 2 Fluid Body and Anatomy
March 29th – April 3rd, 2016/8am – 6pm

Learn to approach movement in a way that allows for freedom and exploration, align the body in a safe and efficient manner and make the movement adjustments your body needs to move both gracefully and safely. We will dive deeper into teaching with alignment cues, breath and teaching to others. Lecture topics will include the ethics of teaching. We will also cover the 10 hours of required anatomy during this weekend.

MODULE 3: Assisting and Graduation
May 3rd – 7th, 2016/8am – 6pm

The assisting session will teach the difference between adjusting and assisting based on the principles of Fluid Yoga Sequencing. We will approach hands-on work safely for practitioner and adjuster, and help attendees understand how to communicate with students non-verbally. We’ll break down assists for various postures and examine the pressure, direction and intention behind our contact. By exploring the subtleties of touch, we’ll consider how adjustments and assists can foster deeper, more meaningful connections with our students and the practice itself. We will bring the fundamentals of alignment, cuing, teaching, theming and sequencing together for this final weekend. You will teach the Fluid Yoga Baseline sequence to one another as well as implement hands-on assists. We will also cover business of yoga, modifications of yoga and final steps to making a great yoga teacher!
