Learn How To Give A Thai Yoga Massage While Also Receiving One During This Fun, Therapeutic And Informative Workshop!
Thai yoga massage therapy is an ancient and powerful form of bodywork that combines acupressure, gentle assisted stretching and passive yoga postures to open the main energy lines of the body (called Sen), so that blockages, stress, tension and imbalance can be released. The ancients considered it to be a form of metta – or loving touch – that heals, uplifts and harmonizes mind, body and spirit of giver and receiver.
In this workshop, Kim and Gabriel (both certified Thai yoga massage therapy practitioners) will provide step-by-step instructions and demonstrations on how to apply some of the key Thai massage “postures,” which you’ll practice on your partner and your partner will practice on you. You’ll also be provided with a workbook outlining each posture so that you’ll have a source of information and a place to take notes for future reference.
We invite you to come along and bring a friend, family member or significant other for a this very unique and healing experience.
Note: Thai yoga massage therapy is done on the floor atop padded mats wearing comfortable, loose clothing. No experience is required to participate and practitioners of all levels are welcome!
