Advanced Dynamic Thai Massage with Krishnataki & David
21st – 27th August 2019
A Thai massage treatment should include fluidity, continuity and… rhythm. The latter is going to be our main focus during this 5-day playful course.
Nature is characterized by rhythms and cyclical patterns :
– atoms oscillation, light and sound wave patterns, movements of planets, seasons… around us.
– breathing activity, cell division, peristalsis, heart beats, hormonal activity, body masses movement… within us.
We live through this perpetual Yin and Yang manifestation. Life is movement and rhythm is one of the fundamental principles of Life. It allows evolution! It is this cyclical change in-between rest and movement that generates forces. And in the same way, the non- respect of our inner rhythms leads us to a disease state.
..Dynamic Flow …In this course we will learn how to go with the flow…and have freedom in our movement. Having already the basic techniques and principles of Thai Massage, we will go deeper in our understanding of the flow…the Sacred Dance. How we can adjust, move and dance with another body, without getting “stuck” in positions, keeping precision in both line work and acupressure points. We will explore more acupressure points and learn how to use more the elbow, knee and foot. We will learn how to give a full body Thai massage by using the foot only and we will incorporate elements of dynamic Thai massage into our practice.
