Yogassage is a recently coined term that combines the notions of yoga and massage. Yogassage is often used to refer to yoga that is practiced with a partner. Practicing yoga with a partner—whether a loved one or a workout mate—can be a lot of fun. In addition, you can get an even better stretch and other enhanced benefits when someone helps you go more deeply into a yoga posture. For this reason, there is a separate chapter in Yoga for Men titled "Partnered Yoga" (Chapter 15) devoted to this subject—complete with illustrated instructions on representative partnered yoga exercises.
Nateshvar Ken Scott is one yoga innovator who has developed an approach to yoga that he calls "Yogassage." It is similar to Thai massage. One partner completely relaxes and receives, while the other gives. Yogassage incorporates yoga stretches with the creative use of hands, arms, elbows, knees, and feet in an especially nurturing and opening practice.
