Thai Yoga, sometimes called Thai Yoga Massage, is described by Dr. C. Pierce Salguero and David Roylance in their book, Encyclopedia of Thai Massage: A Complete Guide to Traditional Thai Massage Therapy and Acupressure, as:
Thai massage, Thai yoga massage and Thai yoga therapy are names commonly used in the West to refer to a traditional massage modality that is native to Thailand...A complete Thai massage incorporates a combination of acupressure and yoga-like stretching. Thai Massage is different from many Western forms of massage in that there is no oil used, the therapist uses a mattress on the floor (instead of a massage table), and the client remains completely clothed throughout the session. It is so different from what we typically think of as "massage" that it is often described as having someone "do yoga to you."
Thai Yoga is a very powerful healing modality. Join us to see what it's all about! You may decide to move forward with Thai Yoga professionally by seeking a school that offers advanced training, or you may simply want to be able to offer a little Thai Yoga while working with private clients, teaching small groups, or helping a family member. Whatever your reason for attending, it will be time well-spent!
