The Art of Thai Massage

  • Violet Owl Wellness 62 Wall Street Asheville, NC, 28801 United States (map)

Thai Yoga Massage is a 2,500-year-old form of bodywork therapy that integrates elements of yoga, massage, Ayurveda, and martial arts into a beautiful dance between giver and receiver. In this 4-hour immersion, we will explore the foundations of Thai Yoga Massage through the art of play and movement, learning simple and effective massage techniques and assisted yogic stretches that will enrich our understanding of this ancient healing practice. In this exploration, we will deepen our knowledge of human anatomy, cultivate mindfulness and compassion, and rediscover the power of touch as a tool for growth and transformation.

Open to all levels of experience.
