Hot Springs and Massage Discounts

 

Well. I’m sure my friends in Virginia and new friends in California maybe interested in what I’ve been getting into! (You can skip my indulgent life stories to my seasonal massage discount which are listed below.)

Many of you know I’ve been searching for my “Eat Pray Love” moment in Italy. I went to Venice, Verona and Sud Tyrol in March and it didn’t quite do the trick so I scuba dived in Naples last month in June and THAT finally cured me. Well, I’ve also been “hard at work” scouting locations for unforgettable yoga retreats. I still dreaming of gathering us in the Alps and went back to my spa/Valhalla called Lusnerhoff last March. Last month however I found a location so incredible I couldn’t wait another moment to share it with you…

September Yoga Retreat Ischia Hot Springs

Off the northern coast of Naples is a volcanic island called Ishia (pronounced is-ski-ah). This island is loaded with the most intense mineral rich hot springs a worn out yoga girl could ever dream of. Please come with me, flow with me and follow me to the sea this September. I will offering a light asana (posture) focused meditative vinyasa and aquatic meditation (massage) certification. But HONESTLY I just want this healing water and this healing mud and sea weed! This healing all natural pasta and bruschetta! These healing fresh green olives and white wine (yes I said it) ALL of it to heal your soul the way it has mine.

Calistoga Day Trips Hot Springs

If you can’t go all the way to Italy for hot springs, I understand. Luckily the ever-famous Harbin Hot springs, the birthplace of Watsu®, is now open!! We are escaping for two day trips this summer. For now: Saturday July 13th and Saturday August 17th. Come enjoy this incredible hot spring facility and the amazing culture that surrounds it. *cough* Napa *cough* Virginians are welcome to California to enjoy this with us. We miss you SO much this trip is perfect for you!

ok, for those who are bound locally to Campbell summer specials are listed below:

WEEKLY 90 minute Thai Massage Deep Tissue
$90 (a $50 discount!!) Happy Hour 10am – 4pm Tuesday’s and Thursdays

BIWEEKLY 90 minute Thai Massage Deep Tissue
$125 (a $15 discount) Happy Hour 10am – 4pm Tuesdays and Thursdays

Ishia Mud Wrap with Hydrantsu (Cuddle Therapy)
$85 for roughly 60 minutes – What is this? Basically you are lightly massaged all over with this amazing mineral rich mud. Then you need to dry either in my office resting under a heat-lamp or simply go out into the beautiful California sun. Since we don’t have the Mediterranean sea convenient I will then wash you off outside or with warm towels on the massage table at your discretion. Any remaining time works a swedish or sports massage with an anti-depressant lemon-burgmont essential oil in italian olive-oil nutrient rich massage lotion. I cover you up in a tarp and blankets and perform Tantsu which is a cuddly form of massage similar to Watsu (but without water). Eeeenjoy!

About Semi-Private Yoga

Greetings Yogis or Yogi-to-be-Yogis!

Yoga Beginners or Yogis that are more familiar with corporate style yoga brands like Core Power and Bikram are often confused by the semi private concept of Hydra Yoga. Our semi-private classes are classes designed to meet the needs of each individual in the class. The title “semi-private” is often used when individuals want to spend more one-on-one time with a instructor who would otherwise be teaching a much larger class. Right now at Hydra Yoga in Campbell California ALL our classes are semi-private, teaching to no more than FIVE students at a time.

I get asked about the concept a lot because I generally discourage students from “dropping in” before I’ve had a chance to talk to them over the phone or see them for a massage. It is very important to me to know the body’s limitations, strengths as well as the intuitive spirit and personal goals to design a perfect healing system crafted for each individual. I’ve been meaning to write about this for a long time but I didn’t want it to come off as if I “invented the wheel” with small class size yoga. Small class size yoga has been around since yoga began. I think the confusion is that I teach similar styles as the larger brands; power, hot and ashtanga-improve, but I do it in a setting which makes each class feel like a personally customized massage. (Maybe a deep tissue one.)

Hope you enjoy!
Kelly Tatum

 

Hydra Yoga Therapy

 

“I am proud to have stuck to my guts in several very intense situations and hold true to my hearts intention of founding a center where I can focus solely on the concept of health …”

Wanderlust Weekly: Congrats on the growth of Hydra Yoga Therapy! What inspired it’s creation? Kelly Zimmerman: I found there was a need for a fully integrated yoga and massage experience within a studio. The key to this is a fully working knowledge of anatomy and the energetic body from our instructors and therapists. We hold massages, group yoga classes and private yoga classes but we also hold yearly modules for our new and current yoga teachers to learn massage elements and our massage therapists to learn the ancient yoga concepts and colorful modern popular yoga styles. The vision of massage and yoga is entirely my own formula which I call “Hydra”. From massage to yoga everything is customized uniquely to the clients individual strength and healing needs.

Wanderlust WeeklyYou’ve built a strong community following in Campbell, what are some of your proudest moments? Kelly Zimmerman: From the comparatively sleepy town of Charlottesville to the Wild Wild West of Silicon Valley I went from friendly college-town mouse to big-city gunslinger with grit and tons of heart. I am proud to have stuck to my guts in several very intense situations and hold true to my hearts intention of founding a center where I can focus solely on the concept of health. When you set your intention properly you create space for a positive, rewarding community. I am proud everyday to share the gift of yoga and massage with others.

Wanderlust WeeklyWe wish you continued success in 2017, what upcoming news or developments can we look forward to? Kelly Zimmerman: Thank you so much! Back at you! I thought about your guys as I was hiking from hotel to hotel in the northern Italian alps last April. I won’t able to put it together this year but in 2018 I hope to hold a retreat in the Alps because I found them so healing and inspiring. I am also getting into snowboarding here in Tahoe, which is very beautiful, so maybe I can hold a retreat nearby.

New Candlelight offerings!


We’re excited to expand our class offerings with our Candlelight Yoga classes this Spring! Come out friday nights for some relaxation with our new class.

Yin and Restorative Yoga have become increasingly popular over the years as people have realized the importance of giving back to their own bodies. In Yin Yoga, poses are held for longer periods of time, stretching the connective tissues that aren’t always exercised in a regular asana practice. A gentle, beginner class, Restorative/Yin involves variations of seated and supine poses held for several minutes with the use of supportive props. Yin Yoga is designed to help regulate the flow of energy in the body, and Restorative is about centering breath and body and triggering relaxation.

Join our Friday night Candlelight Flow for a relaxing way to end the week with some gentle vinyasa, appropriate for all levels. This class is a more meditative practice with low lights and candles to encourage inner guidance and self expression. With a little Yin/Restorative thrown in, it’s a nice way to relax and refresh on a Friday night.

Hike & Climb February


Big thanks to all the yogis who came out for our Hike and Climb! It’s good mental yoga and physical yoga to get out of one’s regular routine and try something new. Being in nature, although chilly, is so good for Hot Yoga Lovers like us at this time of year when we spend so much time indoors. Fresh air, sunshine so good for the lungs and internal organs and that steep incline of Humpback Rock so good for those thighs and glutes! We’d be happy to offer this workshop again throughout the year. We’ll get that level 0 rock one day!! Please remember to register in advance in order to order your gear. Namaste Adventurers!
