Thai Yoga Therapy

Thai Yoga Therapy, also referred to as "lazy man's yoga," is a grounding and blissful medley of acupressure, assisted stretching, and passive joint mobilization.  With hands, feet, elbows, and knees, the practitioner mindfully uses rocking motions and stretches to create flow and release blockages through the main energy lines (meridians or sen) of the client's body.  Despite popular misconception, this style of bodywork is not meant to be painful, but rather take you just to the edge between pleasure and pain...that sweet spot where your muscles & fascia open deeply and release.  

During a session you will be comfortably clothed on a special mat on the floor.  You will be guided to take deep breaths and encouraged to create an intention of presence and curiosity as you relish in the sensations of Thai Yoga Massage lighting up your whole being!
