Thai Yoga Massage is a traditional healing art that has now gained recognition with health care professionals. Articles have been written in Time Magazine, Massage Magazine as well as the New York Times to name a few. Though it is practiced widely in Thailand, its roots have been traced in India and are based on Ayurvedic and yogic principles.
The massage takes place on either a mat or a table whereby the practitioner guides the recipient through a series of dynamic stretches, acupressure work along energy lines and rhythmic rocking. The recipient experiences deep relaxation and profound relief from the stresses of modern living. This promotes a sense of rejuvenation and allows the recipient to feel more energetic and focused.
We begin with foundational principles and teach in a very systematic way providing instruction, hands on practice and repetition to ensure that the student’s skills develop exponentially over the duration of the course.
We have taken great care in developing courses that provide a strong and supportive environment so that participants finish with a feeling of total confidence in their abilities. Classes become incredible bonding experiences that are both fun and challenging. Students often rate their experience as among the best workshops they have ever attended.
Courses we offer
4 hour Taster and Two Day Introductory Courses
Courses to whet the appetite, teach the student or couple interested in a casual massage and build a student base for further training
In a 4-hour intro course the students learn how to give a 25 minute massage. The 2 day course deepens the student experience, as they learn how to give a 60-minute massage that provides the foundation for massaging all parts of the body.
Prenatal Thai Yoga Massage
A 3 day course where students learn a 60 minute flow designed specifically for expecting mothers. They will also learn all necessary contraindications and precautions to take when working in this environment.
Table Thai Yoga Massage
A 3 day course where students learn a complete 60 minute massage designed especially for the table. This class is open to anyone with previous massage training (not only Thai Massage). We provide practitioners tools and postures that support their body when working on a massage table.

5-day courses to prepare students for certification and professional practice. Thai Yoga Massage I teaches a 90-minute massage, with all the tools to give a beneficial therapeutic massage; Thai Yoga Massage II expands the repertoire to 180 minutes, allowing for increased refinement and customization of a routine that addresses the specific requirements of the client.
