Sunday 13th March
2 - 5pm
During this three hour workshop you will learn the basics of Traditional Thai Massage, nowadays often referred to as Thai Yoga Massage. The workshop is led by Roy van den Bor who has studied the art of Thai Massage in Thailand. His deep passion for exploring a more free body has led him to now teach yoga and practice massage on a wide ange of clients. Roy will give you his key insights in how the Thai massage works and how to get started practicing a simple but excellent Thai massage.
The workshop starts by exploring where Thai massage originates from and how it can be beneficial for people in the current day age. Some basics regarding injuries, safety, the human body and its energy system are covered after which we start to work with our partners. First of all (and as is skipped in many massage courses!) we need to develop sensitivity of touch and we learn this though a series of exercises where communication with your partner is key.
During the last two hours of the workshop Roy will demonstrate and explain in detail a sequences of massage moves after which you will, in turns, practice this on your partner. You will receive a few pages showing and explaining the massage moves as reference material.
After this workshop you will be comfortable to start exploring Thai Yoga Massage with friends and family and enjoy sharing this precious gift. The course is limited to 10 participants to safeguard personal assistance.
