Thai Yoga Massage Training with Jennifer Yarro

Thai Yoga Massage Training with Jennifer Yarro

Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing art that combines the alignment of the breath, yoga asana and mindfulness meditation of Metta (loving compassion) into a flowing dance of continuous rhythmic motion to deliver a soothing and revitalizing experience. TYM is based on an understanding of energy lines and marma points in the body, working with balancing the energetic bodies and freeing and removing any blockages that may present in the physical, mental, emotional bodies. A session of TYM 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.

June 28-July 1 ~ Thai Yoga Massage Training Level II
The Arlington Center, 369 Mass Ave, Arlington, MA
This course will offer another full sequence of Traditional TYM, expanding on the ‘Foundations of Thai Yoga Massage Certification Level I.’ In addition to covering content that will enable one to give up to a 2.5-3 hour massage, there will be more focus on body mechanics, breath work, side-lying positions, advanced transitions, and working with different body types and ‘challenges.


To apply for this training one must have completed the ‘Foundation of TYM Certification Level I’ with Jennifer. Trainees can take the Level I and Level II training back-to-back, or if some time has elapsed, students must have at least 30 hours of documented practice of the “Foundation of TYM” sequence before Level II training. If it has been more than one year between taking the Level I and II trainings, it is recommended that students take a ‘refresher course’ of the Level I training.
