About the Course
Next training October 22-23, 2022
In-person or live online option
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.
Details of the Training
This Advanced Training will cover how to utilize the feet, knees, elbows, and full body weight to find ease and longevity in the giver's practice. Content will include introduction to sen lines, breath work, meditation, proper body mechanics, and self-care practice. Ideal for bodyworkers, massage therapists, yoga teachers, AcroYogis, and anyone with a pre-existing Thai Massage practice. Previous experience and training in Thai Massage is required to join this training. Jennifer does accept practitioners from other lineages for this training. If you are considering this training but not sure it is the right one for you, contact Jennifer for a free consultation.
A certification of the 'Hands-free Thai Massage' will be awarded upon completion of attending and fully participating in all the training hours and practicum.
Schedule & practicum:
Training hours are Saturday-Sunday 9:30am-5:30pm EST with an hour lunch break.
There will be an additional time during the training to review your notes and material each night.
*For those taking the training online, please note that this is a hands-on experiential training which will require you to have a person to work on during the 2 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 our practicum times. Plan to have 2.5 hours in the morning session and 2.5 hours in the afternoon session. The practicum times will confirmed before the start of the training so you can make arrangements.
You will receive a PDF copy of the manual to download or print. You will also receive access to a library of recorded lectures about TYM as well as demos of the sequence. This invaluable resource is included in your tuition.
Continuing Education Credits:
For those who qualify, CE's are available from NCBTMB for LMT & Bodyworkers, and from Yoga Alliance for registered Yoga Teachers.
