with Sudevi Linda Kramer M.A., L.M.T. Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga is traditionally performed on a large comfortable cotton futon floor mat which gives the receiver both comfort and full-body support. Working on the floor also allows the therapist to move freely around and above the client, making for effective use of the therapist’s bodyweight and mechanics. The therapist can also work with the receiver in a variety of positions, including prone, supine, side-lying, and seated. In a Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga session you will wear loose-fitting or stretchy clothing that allows your body to move.No oils are needed. The techniques used work far beneath the surface of the body, effecting the deeper layers of the muscles and skeleton. After the completion of this two-day Thai Yoga Bodywork course, participants will have the foundation for giving a classic 90-minute session. We will work in supine, prone, side-lying, and seated asanas. All participants will receive hands-on assistance, as well as a course manual to take home. Learn: Beautiful sequences of exotic stretches and Thai Bodywork techniques, also known as assisted Yoga. Thai Bodywork is marma therapy and synthesizes acupressure, rhythmic compressions, ancient breathing arts and meditation to produce profound rest and rejuvenation. Mantras for the marmas and chakras will also be included.
