Thai Yoga Massage introduction workshop 6-week series
An in-depth introduction and exploration of the different facets of the powerful and subtle work of Thai Yoga Massage. This course offers the ideal opportunity to find out and experience what this ancient healing art is all about. Each week we discover different qualities of this powerful bodywork, learn a short sequence and exchange the moves and techniques on each other.
Week 1: What is energy and how can we connect with it & working on the feet
Week 2: The power of touch & working on the energy lines in the legs
Week 3: Movement as expression of life & stretches and twists
Week 4: Meditation in movement & working on shoulders and hips
Week 5: The teachings of the Brahmavihara (loving kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, equanimity) & working on the back body
Week 6: Connecting more deeply & putting together the whole sequence
The focus of these workshops will be on how to connect with the different layers of the human being through the power of touch. With playful exercises and partner work we will try to get out of the thinking mind and into our feeling hands.
By the end of the course you will be able to practice a 45-minute sequence, that is is easy and effective, and and at the same time also feels great to receive. Discover how with a relatively short sequence you can already help someone to release body tension, restore their energy balance, establish a sense of grounding and state of deep relaxation. Your friends and family will be forever grateful.
If you are a yoga teacher or bodyworker already, you will also gain some moves you can apply in your existing work, improve your hands-on adjustment and sense of touch.
This course is the perfect way to start your Thai Massage journey.
What is Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage comes from an ancient Buddhist tradition and is a unique combination of yoga, acupressure, meditation, physiotherapy and energy work. It is a holistic therapy form with the aim to restore the natural energy balance in body and mind.
Thai Massage, with its grounding and deeply relaxing qualities, is the perfect antidote to our modern lifestyle stresses. With the release of holding and blockages, not only the body can regenerate, but the mind also has a chance to quieten down.
Thai Massage promotes general health and well-being. Working to release blockages in the body’s energy system, it can help to improve posture, lower back pain, breathing and flexibility. It helps to dissolve muscular tension and can counteract physical and mental exhaustion, stress symptoms and discomfort. The neurological response makes the organs work more efficiently, so digestion and circulation can improve, blood pressure level can normalise and headaches disappear.
