Thai Yoga Bodywork is based on the Northern Style of Traditional Thai Massage, otherwise known as Nuad Boran. It is an ancient sacred healing art dating back 2,500 years that integrates Ayurveda, Massage, Buddhism and Yoga. During a session you will experience rhythmic massage, deep stretching, assisted Yoga poses and acupressure along the Thai Meridians known as Sen Lines.
What is a Typical Session Like?
A typical Thai Yoga session lasts anywhere from one to two hours. Recipients lie clothed in loose comfortable clothing on a futon designed for Thai Massage. You can expect to focus on breathwork and be moved into a series of postures. You will feel deep stretches as well as specific point work. The overall intention is to bring balance to the body, mind and spirit so that energy may flow more freely. You will feel energized and open at the finish of the session.
