Beginner introduction weekend in Lisbon

March 25-27
Lisbon, Portugal
@ Agora Yoga Studio


This course is a brief introduction into the magical world of healing touch.

Thai massage is an ancient healing practice used to release energetic blocks and bring balance to the body and mind. It is a sacred form of bodywork, rooted in yoga and Buddhism, and embracing the spiritual aspects of our Being. Physically, Thai massage 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 this weekend introduction course, 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.

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. A print manual is provided to help you continue practicing at home.


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.
