Massage aka Baby Pose Drumming is an ancient yogic healing
and massage technique using music (tabla drumming) in
the background and therapist fingers drumming upon the
spine in keeping with the 16 beat tabla. Clients are
fully clothed and are in baby pose, a very safe, comfortable
and comforting position.
quote the Master, Yogi Bhajan, “The client may
have a dead immune system and there may be a chronic
problem that resists conventional treatment. So, when
nothing works, when a client is feeling hopeless, Baby
Pose Drumming or Yoga Massage will work. If you put
teen taal [16 beat tabla] music on and listen to that
rhythm doing the treatment, the client will get up and
be totally changed. The body automatically readjusts
itself and the immune system will come through. When
your inner drummer hears those 16 beats, that’s
Kundalini. That is your life force. That’s the
the drumming doing? It’s giving the navel point
stimulation and arousal, so that the pure energy rises
with the master gland [pituitary] direting, and the
disease will leave.”
Yoga Therapist taps along the spinal column in a specific
manner while client is in baby pose. Halfway through,
clients are requested to roll over onto their back for
navel massage for redirecting the energy/chi. Take an
hour for yourself and reap the rewards of renewed chi
energy. More often than not, the client is so relaxed
that the request for rolling over seems monumental.

as we all dwelled in our mother’s womb in this
posture before birth. As a forward bend it promotes
the idea of letting go and surrender. It reminds us
to cultivate our inner innocence so that we in turn
may see the world without judgement or criticism. Balasana
