Harnessing the healing and liquid zero-gravity properties of the Dead Sea water and immersed in the stillness of the sacred Judean desert, Avayasana is the name given to a prolonged, uninterrupted state of deep body relaxation that quiets the mind for a direct experience of pure awareness and a profoundly healing effect.
Rooted in the well-researched floatation therapy called REST (Reduced Environment Stimulation Technique), and integrated with the ancient tradition of yoga and meditation, Avayasana is an innovative approach that bridges western science with eastern disciplines and philosophy.
