Pranassage

As I alluded to in my previous post, I spent a little time in San Francisco for some vacation. But before I entered vacation mode, my good friend Miki Sato asked if I could help her make some pictures to promote her Pranassage practice. I’m sure you all are wondering what “Pranassage” is, just like I did when Miki first told me about it, so here’s my best explanation.

“Prana,” which is a common term you’ll hear while practicing yoga, is essentially energy, life-force or breath. Combine that with “massage,” and you get “Pranassage.” To paraphrase Miki’s explanation, it’s basically having an experienced yoga instructor do the yoga for you — putting your body in correct alignment and helping you to balance everything out. The ultimate goal is to feel complete bliss and stress relief.

But of course, you’ll get a better idea if you just see what it is for yourself.

For anyone local to the Boston area or anyone planning any time on Cape Cod or the islands over the next few months, Miki will be bringing her practice to Nantucket for the summer. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, send her an e-mail at mikicsato@gmail.com.

Many thanks to our friend Akino for being a wonderful model/guinea pig — I don’t think she minded though. And thanks to my photo assistants, the lovely Sarah Phillips, and…
