Breath & Body Mechanics in Thai Massage
This 13 hour workshop is specially designed for practitioners of traditional Thai massage, and other floor-based modalities, and previous experience in Thai massage is required. The focus is to explore concepts that will help you to execute postures and techniques with less physical strength, more ergonomic balance, and greater integration of breath. We study factors such as relative body size, proper body posture, “surrender”, synchronized and opposite breathing patterns, and creating graceful transitions when moving from one position or posture to another. Each participant has plenty of time to practice and refine these concepts with a variety of other students in class. We also explore energy release and the role of breath in minimizing energy transference from one person to another. Finally, we practice physical and spiritual exercises to enhance your experience, and that of your client, during each session.
This course familiarizes you with basic concepts that can be integrated into your own professional and personal practice. If you have ever found yourself working too hard during a Thai massage, if you sometimes get distracted and lost, or if you sometimes feel tired or depleted after a session, this workshop is for you.
