《Thai Yoga Massage》
Thai massage is an ancient healing practice used to release energetic blocks and bring balance to the body, heart and mind. Rooted in Yoga and Buddhism, it combines passive stretching and deep compression, supported by mindfull presence and intention. It is a magical journey of transformation for both the receiver and the giver.
✦✦ WEEKEND INTRODUCTION COURSE✦✦
This course is an introduction to a unique bodywork modality and a deeper experience of it’s main principles – loving-kindness and compassionate touch – from where we must begin our Thai massage journey. Thai yoga massage is an ancient bodywork practice that stems from yoga of India and Buddhism, yet more importantly, it is a magical journey of transformation, using meditation, presence and intuitive listening to encourage self-healing… for both the receiver and the giver!
In this course, you will walk away with a massage sequence to practice on (healthy) friends and family, as well as an experience of understanding skills that you can bring into your daily life, including compassionate touch, sensitivity, intuitive listening, and letting go of tension.
After this magical weekend,
✦ you will take home a print manual from Erica to support you in continuing the practice at home
✦ you will have a massaging sequence which you can practice on your healthy friends and family
✦ you will have learned and experienced skills that you can bring into your daily life as well.
✦ you will have explored a deeper connection to yourself and others
No previous experience is required. Great for anyone already working with body-based modalities (yoga, dance, massage, etc.) or anyone with an interest in finding deeper connections to themselves and others. In this intensive, we will joyfully explore the powers of touch and connection while practicing a simple routine that covers the body from feet to head. Different elements of Thai yoga massage will be explained along with its roots and principles.
Erica has been practicing yoga, spirituality and healing modalities for over 10 years. Having explored other forms of bodywork already, she found a real connection and faith upon discovering Thai Yoga Massage, and hasn’t looked back since. This work transformed her through its elements of creativity and playfulness, rooted in a spiritual practice that helps the healing of others as well as ourselves.
Originally from Canada, Erica now lives and runs her business in Portugal. She is mostly massaging, while offering workshops and courses around Europe. She continues to study and go deep into her practice. Her passion to understand and to share healing has made teaching become part of that practice, as it has opened her to experiencing with even more clarity how ancient and traditional knowledge really does bring healing into people’s lives.
