Spend 3 days on the magical North Shore of majestic Lake Superior learning and practicing the foundations of an ancient healing art. An introductory course to the basic, yet incredibly effective, techniques of Thai massage along with some history, cultural aspects and self-care through Thai yoga. By the end, you will be able to perform a unique 1 hour+ Thai massage session using safe body mechanics for you and your client. We'll practice several techniques using hands, fingers, thumbs, forearms, elbows, knees, feet, toes, heels and occasionally your entire body to apply pressure in supine, prone, seated and side-lying positions with a focus on body mechanics to ensure a sustainable practice. Along with these, we’ll practice Thai yoga for self-care, verbal and non-verbal communicating, making smooth transitions, and using intention and intuition in a relaxed learning environment. We'll introduce the Thai energetic system, the importance of self-care ritual, wind gates, some common acupressure points and abdominal massage. Each student will receive an illustrated handbook of the various techniques we practice. This course will help to lay a solid foundation from upon which you can build your Thai bodywork skills. There is so much to learn!
Water, tea, snacks, mats, and pillows will be provided during class. All practice will be in the traditional style; fully clothed, on a mat on the floor. Wear comfy workout or yoga attire you can move and stretch in. We keep our classes small for your benefit. Space is limited to 10.
