Learn Thai Yoga Massage

Sep 27, 2016 09:58PM
Thai Yoga Massage (Nuad Pan Boran) is an ancient form of therapeutic healing. Born in the temples of Thailand, it has been practiced for more than 2,500 years and combines acupressure, energy/meridian balancing, stretching and gentle yoga asanas (postures) in order to align the energies of the body for optimal health and wellness. Training to learn this ancient healing art is being offered at Thrive Yoga, in Rockville, starting this month.

This training is open to everyone—no prior bodywork or yoga experience is required. The course is approved by the National Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NBTMB) and offers 36 Continuing Education Credits (CECs).

Each student in the course will learn: how to perform a fully balanced Thai Yoga Massage session; the history and principles of Thai Yoga Massage; the major Sen Lines massaged during a session; gentle yoga stretches and meditation techniques to avoid burnout/injury; modifications for clients with certain limitations and/or health concerns; proper body alignment; and how to work with different body types safely and the business of Thai Yoga Massage and state regulations.

Upon taking the course to receive certification, students will need successfully complete of all hours, including 5 of 10 practice hours done at Thrive Studio during training and pass a series of written and practical exams. All students will also receive a Spiritual Essence training manual and frame-ready certificate upon completion.
