BIANCA LORAGE

Holistic Bodywork Practitioner & Yoga Instructor

BIANCA graduated with honours from the Vancouver School of Bodywork and Massage. Her style is largely influenced by the Deep Flow teachings of Mylène Bergeron, which draws on manual therapy, breathwork, mindfulness and the anatomy of movement. Working in the field of Wellness, Bianca noticed that many people often arrived to class or their treatment with a very tightly wound nervous system. With this in mind, her style of yoga and bodywork is generally slower paced and mindful to bring the nervous system into a state of rest and relaxation. In her treatments, Bianca weaves several modalities of bodywork together to create a treatment that is unique to your needs, leaving you feeling renewed and empowered.

Signature Treatment: RESTORATIVE BODYWORK with BIANCA 

This practice places a deep emphasis on settling the nervous system by merging restorative yoga with manual therapy. A tailored restorative yoga series, including hands-on bodywork and myofascial release, will help us to work together to identify holding patterns in the body and any limits to the breath. This treatment will help to enhance the body and breath connection and aid in releasing limiting movement patterns held within our posture. This is primarily practiced on the floor with the use of props, however, we may move to the table for some portions of the treatment. The incorporation of essential oils and energy work into this treatment will help to bring the nervous system into a deeper state of rest, so you can float off into the rest of your day.
