Thai Yoga Massage Workshop

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Thai Massage is an ancient, sacred, and therapeutic practice that combines rhythmic massage, assisted yoga poses, and acupressure along the energy meridians.  The slow movements of this ancient practice allow the body, mind, and spirit to slow down and realize a true form of relaxation.  Thai massage offers numerous health benefits, including enhancing the circulatory system within the body, releasing any blocked/stagnant energy and allowing harmful toxins to be flushed out of the body.  Thai massage treats the WHOLE person, allowing true healing to transpire. This workshop is truly a healing gift for the body, mind, and spirit.  Elka will teach you key techniques for this ancient healing art form.  With her extensive experience as both a yoga teacher (with tremendous knowledge of yoga adjustments and breathing awareness) and a massage therapist (since 2006), Elka has developed an extraordinary ability to share her knowledge and gifts with a hands-on, applicable style that allows you to immerse yourself into the experience.In this Introduction to Thai Yoga Massage Workshop you will: • Discover the principles and philosophy of Traditional Thai Massage • Learn the traditional prayer and Invocation for the father doctor, Doctor Shivago • Discover the importance of understanding and identifying Sen lines •  Understand how to prepare the body and mind before giving treatment • Learn how to feel your client’s energy and work with a meditative state of mind • Discover body mechanics and techniques • Learn how to give and receive a full hour Thai Massage!
