Thai Massage Workshop

Traditional Thai Massage is a form of bodywork rooted in Ayurveda and the ancient spiritual teachings of Thailand’s Buddhist healers. Often called Thai Yoga Massage, this deeply relaxing yet invigorating therapy incorporates deep passive stretching, joint mobility, and pressure applied to energetic pathways similar to those of Traditional Chinese Medicine.


In this workshop Yves guides students through the dance-like movements and practical applications for the artful technique of Thai Massage. The workshop will focus on promoting deep relaxation and addressing common chronic conditions. Focusing on
generalized back pain, anxiety, digestive discomfort, and aches and pains brought on by the demands of daily life and rigorous fitness activities.

Thai massage promotes flexibility, muscle tone, restful sleep and focus. Some describe the experience as profoundly healing and facilitating a connection with the divine self. The effects of Thai Massage can be felt within minutes and will inspire balanced, relaxed energy. Traditional Thai Massage is practiced on the floor on a padded mat for comfort, without the use of lotions or oils. The receiver is dressed in loose fitting, comfortable clothing that allows for warmth and ease of movement. Thai massage is for everyone!

If you have specific medical concerns such as pregnancy or injury please contact Yves or the studio before registering.

Workshop is November 9th, 4-6pm

Now a Practitioner of Massage Therapy including Thai Yoga Massage and a 200­ hour Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance.
