June 1-14 and August 7-13, Nine Mountain Retreat Center, Plainfield, MA
Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing art form that combines the best of acupressure from Thailand and Hatha yoga from India. Gentle rocking movements, deep rhythmic compressions, a variety of stretching movements and restorative yoga positions open the body’s complex network of tissue and energy lines. Thai massage relieves muscular tension and pain, improves circulation, boosts the immune system, and balances the body energetically, facilitating mind-body integration. A session of Thai Yoga Massage results in restoring a healthy, balanced energetic flow to the recipient. It is a complete therapeutic treatment on its own, and may also be incorporated into other modalities of massage or into yoga classes.
This is a full Thai Massage 3-week certification, covering not only the full spectrum of massage workshops that are offered, but includes lifestyle practices like daily meditation, karma yoga, asana, pranayama, and more. Connect with your sangha and yourself in a way that you never have before with what has been dubbed by past participants as “THAI CAMP.” This program is perfect for practitioners who need a change of pace from their daily lives or who live out of state.
• Tuition:$1800 includes 108 hour certification and course materials.
• Lodging is included (commuting does not change this rate) and meals are not included (meals are communally shopped, chopped, prepared and shared, with weekly trips to the farmers market).
• Work exchange and scholarships are not available for this already-discounted program – take the plunge, invest in this epic work, inspiring teacher and yourself!
