The practical expression of loving kindness can be traced to Thailand more than 2500 years ago from the Vajrayana or Diamond Healing Lineage of Tibet. Thai massage technique incorporates elements of mindfulness, gentle rocking, deep stretching, and rhythmic compression to create a singular healing experience. This introductory workshop is suitable for new students, Yoga teachers’ or practitioners seeking an alternative modality from a spiritual perspective. The course covers the basic concepts of hands-on healing in a balanced session as well as good body mechanics. At the end of this course the student will have hands-on experience in the five steps in preparation for the massage, including checking in and developing sensitivity to the Pulses of the Body. This yoga-derived system allows the practitioner or teacher to gain a three-dimensional perspective on facilitating and participating in another’s healing process. Please wear loose clothing; participants remain fully clothed for the process.
