Thai Yoga/Thai Yoga Massage

What is Thai Yoga?

Thai Yoga is considered energy work because practitioners are not guided by anatomical structures, but by an intricate network of 72,000 sen (which refers to the energy lines or pathways) found throughout the body. The Thai Yoga therapist manipulates these energy lines to relax or stimulate the body’s energy.

Thai Yoga Massage - More Info

Physical and Subtle Energy

  • Because it is energy work, Thai Yoga (also called Thai Yoga Massage) works well beyond the physical level, but, like many of our other yoga and energy work practices, it is also used to achieve improvements in the physical body.
  • In Thailand, Thai Yoga Massage is used as a form of physical therapy to help patients increase their range of motion and muscular strength by using the combined benefits of a physical and energetic practice.
  • Historically, Thai Yoga has influences from Buddhism, Ayurveda, Yoga, Chinese medicine, and indigenous Thai medicine. We are fortunate that this healing art has made its way to the West!

Blockages

  • According to ancient Thai wisdom, blocked energy channels result in physical ailments and health conditions.
  • By receiving a Thai Yoga session, these blockages may be released, resulting in improvement in physical and mental conditions, and allowing us a deeper spiritual connection.

Tradition

  • Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient tradition with roots in Yoga, Ayurveda and Buddhism. Traditionally, this ancient practice incorporates rhythmic movement, massage, acupressure, pranayama (breath work), stretching and twisting while providing a safe space for ritual, meditation, prayer or contemplation.
  • When practiced with the union of mind, body and spirit, both the practitioner and the client/student receive benefits.

Yoga or Massage?

  • It’s can be both or just yoga, depending on who offers it and what they use in their practice. In most states, a yoga practitioner can do assisted stretching, but a massage therapist may do traditional massage and assisted stretching.
  • While the session a massage therapist offers might look different than what a yoga teacher provides, they are both valid offerings. Both provide the same wonderful feeling and benefits.
  • A full session might be provided by a massage therapist or yoga therapist/private yoga teacher. This session might embody a lot of  while assisted stretching, twisting and manipulation of energy channels.
  • A group yoga teacher might offer a few “assisted stretches” as adjusting/assisting options.
  • The options are endless and this course is appropriate for all audiences.

Clients (students or receivers) are typically dressed in comfortable clothing and lie on a cotton mat on the floor. It may be practiced on thick yoga mats, as long as it is thick enough for comfort.
