Stillness and Precision – Advanced Thai Massage Course with Sia
8th – 15th May 2023
Thai Yoga Bodywork is a mindful practice. It is meditation in motion, a healing ceremony through deep relaxation and reconnection.
In the winter season nature is retracting its energy inwards. Plants gather and store the life-force in their roots to explode from there in their full strength and thrive again with the awakening of spring. In this special course, we will use this principle of nature to allow deep regeneration.
We will apply techniques with much precision, using the forearm, feet and shinbone to softly sink very deep into the body without using any strength. Additionally, we will follow the dance of the fascia with our seeing palms and listen to the ocean of stillness that might arise.
The given techniques can have therapeutic effects and are to be felt as very nourishing, expelling blockages from the body that might be held on physical or emotional/mental levels.
As a practitioner, you will receive tools to work more therapeutically with your clients and grow deeper in your path of the beautiful art of Thai massage.
How the soul expresses itself through the body was always fascinating me. As a professional performer in movement theatre, it was much about how the body works. How to move, where it is blocked, or which stereotypes are dominant. Later as a social worker, I could explore the mind and behavior aspect in people while supporting them in their process. Since 2005 I practice Thai Massage which allows me to bring it all together and creates a field of constant development. In my workshops, I like to share my very personal approach and help students develop their own way through self-exploration. Students will be guided individually, supported by their actual technical level and also personal condition is. We will gradually evolve step by step with knowledge, care and acceptance.
