Thai massage is an ancient healing practice used to release energetic blocks and bring balance to the body and mind. Rooted in yoga and Buddhism, it combines passive stretching and deep compression, supported by presence and intention. It is a magical journey of transformation for both the receiver and the giver.
In these intensives, we will joyfully explore the powers of touch and connection while practicing a simple routine that covers the body from feet to head. It is an introduction to the main principles of this modality, along with it’s essential tools of compassionate touch and intuitive listening, from where we must begin our Thai massage journey!
No previous experience is required. Great for anyone already working with the body-based modalities (yoga, dance, massage, etc.) or anyone with an interest in finding deeper connections to themselves and others. We will joyfully explore, touch, play and practice while completing a simple routine that covers the body from feet to head while introducing different elements of Thai yoga massage along with an understanding of its roots and principles.
One Day Introduction Workshops
In our single day workshops, we will speak about the history and introduce the main principles of Thai massage. Often people are unaware of the spiritual aspects of this practice, that involve Vipassana meditation, presence and intuitive listening. We will explore qualities of touch while learning a short massage sequence to explore the practice, and hopefully get you excited for more!
Weekend Introduction Courses (2 – 3.5 Days)
For the weekend introduction courses (2.5 days) and 3.5 day courses, you will receive the tools to share a 1 hour safe massage practice on (healthy) friends and family as well as a print manual to continue your practice. This is an introduction to this modality and a deeper experience of it’s main principles, from where we must begin our Thai massage journey. That is, experiencing and understanding the quality of metta (loving-kindness) in everyday touch and approach to others, sending compassion to ourselves and others and resting in listening presence.
