Thai Massage for Yoga & Bodywork: Assisted Stretches and Energy Lines
This is a workshop for lovers of yoga, massage & movement therapies. Traditional Thai massage, which began to evolve over a thousand years ago, combines assisted yoga postures, stretches, compressions, acupressure techniques, and stimulation of energy lines in the body.
Through assisted yoga, the body is stretched in ways that are difficult to attain through normal exercise and personal yoga practice. Correct breathing patterns and body mechanics are essential, and a session is most effective when both the receiver and the therapist are fully relaxed and in a meditative state. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, grounding, and physical and mental stability.
This workshop is specially designed for practitioners and teachers of Western massage therapy, yoga, body movement, and physical therapy. The workshop discusses the origin and evolution of traditional Thai massage; it focuses on several important energy lines in the Thai healing system; and presents acupressure techniques, proper breathing & body mechanics, assisted Thai yoga postures, and stretching techniques. Special attention is paid to traditional Thai techniques that can be adapted to other disciplines, including table massage and assisted yoga, and there is plenty of time each day to give and receive. The goal of this workshop is to familiarize you with basic Thai techniques and concepts that can be integrated into your own professional, personal and spiritual practices. Please join us for a fun and exciting workshop !
