    Thai Massage Phase V – Advanced Sidelines

    Ariela Grodner

    Traditionally, in classical Thai Massage, the recipient assumes either a sitting, prone, supine or side line position. Of these postures a strong working knowledge of sideline and its applications can be indispensable, particularly for working with pregnant clients, or those for whom lying on their stomach is uncomfortable or not possible. In this workshop we will modify all the material previously learned to accommodate these needs.

    Thai Massage: Phase I – Introduction to Thai Massage

    Ariela Grodner

    Over the course of this first workshop, students will learn an hour and a half long form.  Practiced on the floor,  this form enables the therapist the use of elbows, knees, forearms and feet in a comfortable and efficient way that utilizes the body dynamic and ones own weight to distribute the force required for the application of the relevant techniques. Thai Massage is an art whose ultimate objective is a perfected self-awareness through the joy of a mutually beneficial healing dance.

    Biodynamic Cranial Touch Mentor Course: Class #2 of 4

    Giorgia Milne

    The Mentor Course develops out of a field of interest to immerse oneself in the work, and often as a response to an uncanny yet inexorable “calling”. Each course provides the opportunity and support to progressively cultivate and maintain a living, intimate, ever-deepening, and continuous body-felt connection with the Breath of Life, Consciousness, and The Love that is all that is.

    Thai Massage: Phase II – Expanding Vocabulary

    Ariela Grodner

    This workshop is intended for those students who have already familiarized themselves with the Thai Massage practice through taking Thai  1, and are now ready to deepen their knowledge and widen their vocabulary. We will extensively review the Thai 1 material, both strengthening knowledge of the form itself and deepening awareness within the exercises, in order to bring our consciousness to a more subtle level during the healing process.

    Resistance/Release Work: A Dynamic Addition to Your Massage Skills

    Deane Juhan

    Relaxation and stress relief are certainly two main goals of bodywork. But there is an important addition to your clients somatic well-being that more directly addresses the patterns of muscular habituation, posture, compensations due to injury and the restoring of freedom of movement and freedom from pain: the reeducation of the overall sensory motor patterns that have accumulated over time.
