An evening filled with a little playful, laughter-inducing yoga and the chance to learn and receive lots of thai yoga massage to melt away tension. This is all about getting quality time with your bestie or your beloved.
In this workshop, you will be guided through a short practice of partner-assisted asanas (poses), then we’ll move into giving and receiving thai yoga massage techniques. This practice is all about creating bliss, cultivating connection, trust and deeper awareness with yourself and your yoga partner. It is a practice to directly experience the root principle of yoga: union. Partner yoga promotes laughter and creativity, concentration and balance, as well as relaxation and rejuvenation.
Thai yoga massage is a unique form of yoga therapy which combines stretching, compression massage, manipulation of acupressure points, thai yoga postures, energy work and meditation. In this workshop you will experience it as a practice shared by two people who alternate between the roles of being the “giver” and the “receiver”. This healing modality addresses muscular tension and limited range of motion, allowing you to experience yoga postures in a whole new way, challenges with circulation and the lymphatic system, and helps release emotional and mental stress.
Come with a yoga partner, whether that’s a significant other or a friend, and don’t forget to wear loose fitting clothes. It’s advised to finish eating at least 90 minutes before starting the workshop. This workshop is not advised for those with injuries. Appropriate for all levels of yoga students.
