Thai Yoga Bodywork Training
Thai Yoga Bodywork combines elements of massage, yoga, and acupressure. It works to clear blockages in your body by applying a healing touch to the affected pressure points. The technique of massage and stretching releases tension in the limbs and muscles promoting relief from pain and improvement in flexibility. Once these blockages are removed, energy will flow freely in your body. Energy that flows freely will improve ailments and increase your overall physical and mental health.
Thai Yoga Bodywork is an assisted stretching protocol, sometimes called Lazy Man's Yoga. Clients will just rest on their back or on their stomach, while the practitioner uses hands, elbows, and feet to release tension from the body. It is given to a participant who is fully clothed, preferably long pants, long sleeves, and socks.
In addition to learning stretches and massage techniques, we will combine yogic breathing (pranayama or breath work), guided meditation, and various relaxation techniques such as aromatherapy or sound therapy. Your clients will leave feeling stretched and relaxed.
