We are all born with an innate ability to offer healing touch. Most of us have experienced the nurturing, caring, companionate healing touch of our mothers. Societal norms have led us to become a touch-deprived society, yet our bodies scream out: touch me, hold me, squeeze me, heal me. But no one seems to be listening…
Join Monica Angelatos as we explore a lazy yogi’s Ahhh-sana practice. You and your bestie, sister, or lover will share in a mutual un-Thai-ing of each other’s emotional and physical knots, through the therapeutic techniques of Thai bodywork. As you move through a guided partner-supported asana sequence, you will take turns giving and receiving Thai yoga massage.
Thai Massage is a therapeutic, soothing and deep practice. You will learn techniques such as palming, thumbing, pressing and stretching. We’ll move through a series of applied yoga poses that open the joints, lengthen the muscles and stretch connective tissues. Stimulating the tissues causes stagnated energy to become unblocked and flow through the Sen energy lines, restoring balance in the body and leaving you and your partner with a deep sense of well being.
No experience is required. Monica will provide clear, easy-to-follow directions to create a safe environment for your exploration. Bring a partner with whom you feel comfortable being in close contact. You will leave the workshop feeling the bliss of having had a great yoga practice as well as a great massage.
