For many many different reasons. Deeply rewarding reasons. Life changing reasons. Personal growth reasons. I cannot begin to share with you on how deep of a level the practice of Thai Yoga Massage has impacted me. It has opened my mind, my heart, my breath, viewpoints and perspectives on philosophies and beliefs. It has challenged me and nudged me well out of my comfort zones many times over. As a Yoga practitioner it has helped me further my practice and awareness of breath and body. As a Yoga teacher it has opened many more doors.
I can confidently tell you that the practice of Thai Yoga Massage has taken me all over the world. As a Yoga teacher it has been an invaluable partner to teaching. The two practices are interwoven beautifully together and can help you help your students develop deeper into their practice. What you see as a challenge for your student during Yoga practice, can be worked on during a Thai Yoga Massage session.
1 to 1 Yoga sessions become a fusion of Thai Yoga Massage assists and adjustments helping the student to deeper develop their understanding of a posture and how it fuses with their breath, body and movement.
Thai Massage doesn't need anything fancy, no oils, no frills. The receiver is fully clothed so you can offer it really anywhere. Beach, park even buried deep in the forest. You don't need a massage table, just somewhere comfortable to lie on.
