Thai Yoga Massage Training Levels I & 2

This intimate group training will provide an introduction to the ancient practice of Thai Yoga Massage. In this Level I immersion, you will learn a complete 90 minute Thai Yoga sequence designed to bring peace, balance and deep relaxation to the recipient. You will receive an introduction to the major energy lines, learn a variety of meditation techniques together with movement, body mechanics and breathwork. There will be optional morning meditation and yoga.

Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing art rooted in the practice of Metta (loving-kindness) which combines yoga asana, acupressure, and meditation to restore and harmonize the body and mind. It relieves muscle and joint tension, frees energetic blockages and leaves the receiver relaxed and revitalized. Sometimes referred to as the lazy man’s yoga, Thai bodywork takes place fully clothed and without oils. It works the entire body focusing on the sen lines and creates a flowing dance between the giver and the receiver.

A certificate will be awarded upon completion of the workshop and practicum.

No prior experience with Thai Massage is required to apply for the Level I training.
