HOW DO I BEGIN THAI YOGA STUDIES?
We recommend that you first take a Thai Yoga Introductory workshop. They provide a solid introduction to the modality, and teach some of the fundamental principles of Thai Yoga. There are no special pre-requisites for any of our introductory courses other than an open mind, a willing body, and a sincere interest. You may also directly enroll in the Thai Yoga Foundation Course; however, an introductory workshop will establish a foundation that will help you assimilate the Certification program more readily.
WHAT KIND OF TECHNIQUES ARE USED IN THAI YOGA?
Numerous therapeutic and healing techniques are all combined in the Thai Yoga repertoire. It’s an extraordinary and dynamic combination of myo-fascial stretching, joint mobilization, acupressure, energy balancing, rhythmic deep tissue compression, soft tissue manipulation, assisted Yoga postures, and Buddhist meditation. The result is a powerful experience of applied Yoga Therapy. All techniques can be modified to meet the needs of the recipient and range from gentle rhythmic applications to deep tissue and joint manipulation.
WHAT IS THE THAI YOGA CERTIFICATION PROGRAM?
We offer two levels of Thai Yoga Certification, and there is no specific enrollment procedure involved. You simply begin with the Thai Yoga Foundation Course (Level I) and continue with the next level at your own convenience. Due to the increasing number of short and incomplete Thai Massage courses offered, we feel obligated to assure that high quality training is available. The Thai Yoga Certification Program is designed to graduate highly skilled Thai Yoga practitioners and thereby giving this healing modality the highest standards by fully honoring the ancient healing tradition of Thailand.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN OUR THAI YOGA SEMINARS?
The Thai Yoga curriculum is suitable for yoga teachers and yoga practitioners, massage therapists, bodyworkers, health-care professionals, physiotherapists (PT’s), personal trainers, healers, dancers, martial art practitioners, and anyone interested in expanding their body-mind awareness and therapeutic skills. We believe that anyone should be able to learn this healing art and do our level best to make it available to all.
