Improvement of overall posture:
Elongation and decompression of the Vertebral column
allowing for increased mobility and a gentle and natural realignment.
Elongation of the Psoas, which is often contracted and can cause lower back pain.
The release of accumulated tension from the pelvis, lumbar region, abdomen, diaphragm and chest.
Release of accumulated tension in the shoulders, neck and face.
Regulation of the digestive system and increase of breathing capacity. Promotion of blood circulation, Lymphatic flow and detoxification. Decrease in blood pressure and heart rate. Soothing and balancing of the sympathetic and Parasympathetic nervous system Harmonization of the endocrine system.
Marked reduction in depression and stress. Release of emotional blockages and repressed trauma. Increase in one's ability to trust and surrender.
Beside the obvious differences,
-The inverted positions of Tulayoga create traction in the whole vertebral column rather than compression. -Tulayoga is a sensory experience rather than a practice.
-It releases you from being the doer and puts you in a position to just receive.
-The only thing that one practices with Tulayoga is the ability to let go and trust.
-Tulayoga releases you from gravity, from your habitual orientation and sense of time.
A full treatment of Tulamassage takes between 1.5 and 2 hours.
A full treatment of Tulayoga takes between 2 and 2.5 hours.
The treatment begins with 1.5/2 hours of Tulamassage, on the ground.

Abridged treatments are offered by some practitioners.
Tulayoga is not suitable for people who have heart disease, high blood pressure, hiatus hernia, motion sickness. or eye diseases such as retinal detachment or narrow angle glaucoma.Is it not uncomfortable to be up side down for so long?
While you receive all the benefits of being inverted, the feet of the practitioner are placed in such a way that blood does not rush to your head and cause the discomfort normally associated with inversions.Is there an age or weight limit?
Anyone from 5 years upwards can enjoy Tulayoga. There is no upper age limit, as long as you are in good health. Each practitioner has a personal weight limit. Louka's for example is 75/80 KgsI'm not very flexible, can i still receive a treatment?
You do not have to be as flexible as the people you see in the images on this website. Tulayoga adjusts to, and gently increases your individual limits of flexibility. However, the more flexible and relaxed you become, the more postures are open to youWhat is the difference between Acro Yoga & Tulayoga?
AcroYoga encompasses many disciplines, including therapeutic ones.
However, in general it is more often group oriented, posture focused, dynamic and playful.
Tulayoga is a one on one treatment that you receive from a practitioner who is well practiced in guiding you through a series of release postures, into which you deeply relax. It is given in a private and quiet space. It is meditative, inward looking and primarily focused on the release of tension and the therapeutic benefits of floating in stillness.
