THAI YOGA MASSAGE
This healing form of bodywork integrates passive stretching, massage techniques, and acupressure while working along "sen" lines or energetic meridian lines, of the body. I was first drawn to this practice due to its description as being "a dance between two bodies." This therapeutic practice enhances flexibility and circulation; relieves tension, anxiety, and stress; detoxifies the body; creates a sense of calm and peace; improves and balances the health of physical, mental, and emotional bodies; and many other benefits.
Thai Yoga is practiced on a mat on the floor with both the Practitioner and Client fully clothed, using no oils or creams. I have studied under the Lotus Palm Thai Yoga tradition, which is rooted in the spirit of Metta, or loving-kindness. I have also traveled to Thailand to continue learning this amazing bodywork.
Have fun studying the ancient system of Yoga. Yoga, which means 'to yoke,' 'to unite,' is an all-encompassing tool to find your inner peace and to cultivate a deeper awareness for more healthful living. Become stronger, more flexible, and have more energy and awareness throughout your day!
Teaching Asana (physical postures), Pranayama (breathing techniques), Meditation, Chakra, Mantra, Anatomy, and Philosophy, Shawna can adapt the practice to fit your needs!
