Weekend Introduction Course
This course is an introduction to a unique bodywork modality and a deeper experience of it’s main principles – loving-kindness and compassionate touch – from where we must begin our Thai massage journey. Thai yoga massage is an ancient bodywork practice that stems from yoga of India and Buddhism, yet more importantly, it is a magical journey of transformation, using meditation, presence and intuitive listening to encourage self-healing… for both the receiver and the giver.
In this hands-on course, you will walk away with a massage sequence to practice on (healthy) friends and family, as well as an experience of understanding skills that you can bring into your daily life, including compassionate touch, sensitivity, intuitive listening, and letting go of tension. Different elements of Thai yoga massage will be explained along with its roots and principles.
After this magical weekend,
✦ you will take home a print manual from Erica to support you in continuing the practice at home
✦ you will have a massaging sequence which you can practice on your healthy friends and family
✦ you will have learned and experienced skills that you can bring into your daily life as well.
✦ you will have explored a deeper connection to yourself and others
No previous experience is required. Great for anyone already working with body-based modalities (yoga, dance, massage, etc.) or anyone with an interest in finding deeper connections to themselves and others. In this intensive, we will joyfully explore the powers of touch and connection while practicing a simple routine that covers the body from feet to head. Different elements of Thai yoga massage will be explained along with its roots and principles.
Optional “Refiner’s” Day – Monday October 15th
The weekend course is designed for accessibility for those who are with full workweeks and lower budgets to be able to find time and space to attend the course. If possible, I recommend to take the additional day to create a 3.5 day course for yourself, as this allows more time to integrate, review and practice the material that is covered in a short period of time.
This day we will work with the same material used in the beginner’s weekend course. There will be more time and freedom to practice one on one as well as review specifically the postures or principles that may not have integrated so well within the weekend. There will be more space for questions and discussing more deeply the different elements we bring into this work. Included will also be some more guided self-practices we can do for ourselves to work with our own energy and build internal strength to give to others.
