Thai Massage can be traced back over 2500 years to India and spread with Buddhism to other parts of Asia. It is a synthesis of yoga, Ayurveda, and massage. Done on the floor in comfortable clothing, it incorporates assisted stretching similar to Hatha yoga and working acupressure points. It is stimulating both physically and energetically, giving benefits to both recipient and practitioner alike!
It can be an excellent tool for yoga teachers looking to become more comfortable giving assists, for anyone looking to deepen their knowledge and practice of yoga or massage, or for couples and friends just looking to have some fun and try something new!
This workshop will provide an overview of Thai yoga massage, with a guided stretch routine/massage of one hour, and some basic understanding of acupuncture(pressure) points on the arms and legs. Be prepared to get close, get a little exercise and a few laughs.
Marie did her Thai massage training in Chaing Mai, Thailand in 2004 and has been incorporating it into her massage practice in Edmonton ever since.
