Level 1 Description
Prerequisite: None. Knowledge of anatomy, yoga, bodywork is helpful, not required.
Thai Yoga Bodywork, also known as Thai Massage or Thai Yoga, is an ancient and sacred healing treatment from Thailand that integrates Yoga, Ayurveda, and Buddhist spiritual practice. Unique from other types of bodywork and massage, Thai Yoga combines assisted Yoga poses, rhythmic massage, acupressure, energy work, and Buddhist meditation. It helps receivers release blocked areas and stimulates the flow of healing energies within the mind, body, and spirit. Thai Yoga Bodywork is quickly gaining popularity in the US as a style of bodywork that gives the benefits of a variety of modalities all in one session.
What You Will Learn in Level 1:
This 36 hour training is the first course in the 300 Hour Thai Yoga Bodywork Practitioner Training & Certificate Program with Tanya Boigenzahn. You will learn a complete sequence that will allow you to give a 1 to 1.5 hour Thai Yoga Bodywork session to another person. Students will receive a manual outlining the Thai Yoga Bodywork techniques that is also filled with an appendix full of Energy Work techniques, chakra info, meditations, and more.
Students will also learn:
- History and roots of Traditional Thai Massage
- Benefits and contraindications of receiving as well as giving
- Sequences including: Supine, Arms, Prone, Seated, and Relaxation
- Techniques from a variety of positions as you partner up with another and practice in class
- Ergonomics and proper body mechanics as a giver
- The basics of our subtle anatomy (chakras, meridians, biofield)
- How to assess the biofield and chakras before a session begins
- Basic energy work techniques you can use in a session
- Tools for growing your self care, intuition and healing skills
What Makes this Thai Massage Training Different From Others:
This intensive differs from other Thai Yoga Massage trainings in that you will also learn to assess the chakras, aura, and meridians of the body in order to facilitate your growth in both giving bodywork sessions, and also your own development as a healer. We also study Ayurveda, yoga, meditation and self-care tools.
