Full Description

Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient way of healing that integrates yoga, massage, Ayurveda, and martial arts into a dance between giver and receiver. In this workshop we will explore the foundations of Thai Yoga Massage through play and movement. We will cover some of the basic assisted yogic stretches, body mechanics, and massage techniques to give therapeutic touch to friends, family, students and/or clients. We will create a sacred space for feeling good in our bodies while giving and receiving sacred touch. We will cultivate mindfulness and compassion, deepen our connections to self and others, and explore the power of touch as tool for expanding consciousness. Leave this class with the means to offer a simple and deeply effective Thai massage sequence. This class is open to all levels of experience.
