LEVEL 1: Foundations of Thai Massage
TBD | Friday (5-9pm), Saturday (11-7), Sunday (10-6)
Wisconsin (place will be announced upon registration)
Thai Yoga Massage is a 2,500 old healing art that aligns the practitioner. You will be exploring the Traditional Northern Style Sequence. The 72,000 nadis, or energy channels, in yoga have been distilled down to 10 primary lines in the Thai system. The system of thai massage works these lines throughout our body through, palming, yoga stretches, accupresure, compression, and subtle energy work. When you learn how to implement this system you will bring energy to areas of the body that have been stagnant, release areas that have excess energy, and balance the body, mind and spirit.
This is an entry level class, some of the theory and history will be discussed but primarily you will be learning a full body sequence. The class will be hands on where you will be learning by doing. If you are a yoga teacher you will have new tools to add into your toolbox for hands on assists. Thai Yoga Massage is considered to be lazy man's yoga, so it gives you the tools to offer a different kind of yoga to your students. However, anyone interested in Healing Arts is welcomed to join.
