Yomassage and Meditation Classes Offered at Edison and Ford Winter Estates

July 17, 2019
FL Guide

Health and wellness classes, such as yoga, meditation and massage are being offered at Edison and Ford Winter Estates. On Saturday, July 20, "Full Moon Meditation Alchemy of the Senses" will be held at 1 p.m. Then, Yomassage classes will be offered on Saturday, July 27, at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Classes will be held in the air conditioned lecture hall of the South Florida Water Management building, at 2301 McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers (next to the estates).

Yomassage is a fusion of relaxing and supported restorative yoga positions with hands-on massage therapy. During the class, participants hold each position for approximately 8-10 minutes while a massage therapist performs manual massage techniques. Participation is limited to five students per class and each class lasts approximately 90 minutes. A free demonstration will be available on July 20 at 11 a.m. for anyone wanting to learn more before taking the class.

Bene?ts of Yomassage can include improved joint range of motion and neuromuscular balance, and reduced joint surface compression, all of which can lead to a reduced chance of injury. Yomassage classes are $55 for Edison Ford members and $65 for non-members.

Tickets can be purchased at the membership desk, the ticket counter or online at EdisonFord.org. Advanced reservations are encouraged as space is limited.

In the meditation class, participants will learn how to relax, breathe and enjoy a personal journey through sound vibration with singing bowls and drums. Meditation has been shown to reduce stress and help people experience a deep sense of peace. Participants should bring something to lie on such as a yoga mat or towel, water and a small pillow. Cost of the meditation class is $20 for Edison Ford members and $25 for non-members.

The classes are taught by Dolores J. Gozzi, a Licensed Massage and Alternative Therapist (MA37360). Gozzi also has a Yomassage certi?cation. Registration for both the yoga and meditation classes is available online at EdisonFord.org. Admission to the site is not included.
