Full Description

Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing art incorporating massage, yoga stretches, meridian work, acupressure, joint mobilization, meditation and relaxation.

This whole course is designed so that students gain an intensive learning experience where practice is backed up by clear and detailed communication of the techniques and the correct use of the body. This guarantees you are gaining as solid a grounding as is possible, on which to build your future practice.

This intensive course covers three levels of training in Thai Yoga massage:

Every day starts with an hour and a half Yoga class and continues with the Thai Yoga component.

The first 2 weeks provide students with the practical skills to perform the traditional sequence in 4 positions: front, side, back and sitting; with the addition of a very specific understanding on how to use the body, the weight and the direction of pressure.
This includes:
• working rules;
• precautions and techniques;
• use of thumbs, palms, feet, elbows and knees;
• energy line work on the arms, legs and back from all the above positions;
• pressure points of feet, hips, lower back, shoulders and neck;
• sequence of stretches to unblock energy throughout the whole body.

The 3rd week consists of 5 days of supervised practice to consolidate the information learned in the previous two weeks so to make it easier to focus on your own body mechanics and postural alignment.
Students will:
• deepen their knowledge of the meridians of both arms and legs;
• practice both level I and II again;
• practice stretches they are not yet comfortable with on the teacher;
• prepare a sequence that they will perform on external people on the last day.

Classes are limited to 8 students, so that individuals receive complete professional training and personal attention.
