Introduction to Thai Yoga Massage: Opening to the Flow of Prana, with Daniel Orlansky, Sunday Decemnber 10th 1-4 pm $35 in advance
Thai Yoga Massage draws from an ancient tradition that has been used by the peoples of Thailand for removing blocks in the human energetic system. With conscious touch the Thai Yoga practitioner combines gentle stretching and joint manipulations, assisted yoga postures, and skillful finger and hand pressure to open the major energy pathways of the body with the goal of enhancing the flow of Pranic life force in the body/mind.Thai massage relieves muscular tension and pain, improves circulation, boosts the immune system, and balances the body energetically, facilitating mind-body integration. In this workshop the basic principles and practices of Thai Yoga Massage will be introduced, and a simple sequence that addresses much of the body, including neck and head, will be taught. Feel free to attend alone, or with a friend. No experience necessary!
