With Ana Seymenska, Daria Germondari

£35 earlybird until 14 July, £40 thereafter
Thai Yoga Massage is a unique massage therapy rooted in Yoga philosophy, Ayurveda and Buddhism that combines acupressure and gentle stretching to bring balance and flexibility. By working the invisible energy lines of the body (the Ten Sen similar to Chinese Meridians) the practice aims to free the recipient from aches, pains, anxiety and fatigue.
In this workshop, we will learn a simple but effective Thai Yoga Massage routine to relax and revitalise, improve flexibility and ease the aches and pains of everyday life. The method has been crafted to utilise a diverse kit of techniques making it adaptable to anyone regardless of age, level of flexibility and state of health.
We will begin with a discussion on the theory behind Thai Yoga Massage and some of the characteristics that make it so unique and effective; then dive into a hands-on practice with a sequence of techniques in supine and sitting position. You will leave with a new set of skills and a handout of the sequence to practice on your family and friends!
Get ready to have a fun and relaxing afternoon.
Suitable for beginner yogis, or advanced practitioners alike. There will be some partner work but no need to come with a partner.

Daria is a Yoga teacher and a Thai Yoga Massage therapist having found a passion for both ancient healing practices. Both traditions work on the basis that the teacher or therapist is there to support, facilitate and foster an energetic shift, normally in the form of freeing the flow of blocked energy in the physical, emotional, spiritual and energetic layers of the body.
