Intro to Thai Yoga Bodywork

with Jamie Tancredi


In this three-hour workshop, we will learn a twenty-minute Thai Bodywork sequence to share with family and friends, as well as some tips and techniques for a powerful self-care practice. The healing art of Thai Yoga Massage is a ancient holistic practice with roots in Ayurvedic Medicine and Yoga. It has been a part of Buddhist spiritual practice as well as the Buddhist practice of medicine for centuries. In this powerful system of yoga therapy, “disease” is seen as an imbalance in the living energy system of the body and therefore provides an opportunity to cultivate a greater connection to a person’s path and healing practice. Thai Yoga Therapy works with the energy (sen) lines of the body so that stuck energy is moved and balance can be restored. This system encourages a greater mobility, a powerful stress and tension relief, and an increase in vitality and well being. The practice incorporates a rhythmic bodywork session that combines asana (yogic stretching), gentle twisting, acupressure, and energy work, while bringing the person into a deep state of relaxation. It is a powerful catalyst in deepening the connection between the body, mind, and spirit, not only for the receiver but also for the giver.
