Called “Nuad Boran” or “ancient healing” in Thailand, Thai Yoga Bodywork is a sacred healing treatment that integrates traditional Thai medicine, elemental theory (similar to Indian Ayurveda), and Buddhist spiritual practices.

Unique from other types of bodywork, Thai Yoga Bodywork is also a form of Yoga Therapy that combines rhythmic movement, assisted Yoga poses, acupressure along pathways of movement in the body, healing energy work, and meditation.

This is a great add-on for yoga teachers, massage therapists, bodyworkers, energy workers, or anyone wishing to learn more about this amazing style of healing with roots in Yoga and Ayurveda.

Bring your honey and make it a Yogi Date Night!

Participants will explore

  • Thai Yoga Bodywork history, benefits, and contraindications
  • How to give a therapeutic sequence for feet, legs, hips, back, upper back, neck, and shoulders
