Learn a whole range of effective and amazingly feel-good therapeutic techniques from the Thai hands-on healing tradition – delivered through the understanding and lens of yoga and physical therapy. This workshop emphasizes hands-on skills and confidence with therapeutic touch, while also improving your understanding of anatomy and the body’s relationship to yoga. Thanks to its commonality with yoga and large repertoire of powerful and therapeutic techniques - the Thai tradition has become immensely popular in yoga communities around the world. Thai Yoga includes therapeutic stretching, joint mobilization, deep-tissue compression, toning of energy pathways, acupressure, hatha yoga poses, meditation, and breathing techniques. As a practitioner you will also develop skills for conserving and using your energy optimally, increased body-mind awareness, mindfulness practice, and yoga breathing. Since this practical workshop is based on partner work, you will directly experience deep rejuvenation, transformation, and feel-good qualities - and the pure joy of connecting with another being in this way. Bring a partner/friend or come by yourself and meet one there – fun is guaranteed!
