What is Thai Yoga Massage?
Thai Yoga Massage (TYM) is an ancient healing art that combines the alignment of the breath, yoga asana, and mindfulness meditation of Metta (loving compassion) into a flowing dance of continuous rhythmic motion to deliver a soothing and revitalizing experience. TYM is based on an understanding of the energy lines and acupressure points present in each person. By working along these lines and points, the modality balances the energetic body of the recipient and frees & removes any blockages that may present in physical, mental, or emotional dis-ease.
A Thai Massage session results in restoring a healthy, balanced energetic flow to the recipient. A session can be complete on its own and may also be incorporated into other modalities of massage, yoga, or personal training.
Details of the Training
Level 1 will cover how to give a full 1.5 - 2 hour massage. Content will include an introduction to energy lines, breath work, meditation, utilizing proper body mechanics, chanting and yoga. The last day of the training will also include a practicum of giving a full 75-minute session to a receiver.
*Please note that this is a hands-on experiential training which will require you to have a person to work on during the 4 day training. For some instances, we will work on pillows and props to learn the body mechanics and techniques. However, you will need an actual body present for 2 hours in the morning session and 2 hours in the afternoon session. The practicum times will confirmed before the start of the training so you can make arrangements.
A certification of the 'Foundations of Thai Massage' will be awarded upon completion of attending and fully participating in all the training hours and the post practicum hours.
Schedule & practicum:
Training hours are Tuesday-Friday 8:30am-4:30pm EST with an hour lunch break.
There will be an additional 1.5 hours during the training to review your notes and material each night.
For online trainees, you are asked to practice at least 10 hours of the practicum to solidify the sequence. If you wish you can practice 5 hours and then record yourself for me to review. We will then arrange a complimentary follow up call on Zoom or Whatsapp for personal feedback.
