A Weekend of Yoga, Healing and Thai Yoga Massage
Dancing with the Sun and Moon / Yoga as Alchemy
Join Saul and Dave for an unforgettable experience and transformational journey into the heart of yoga — an experience that will nourish your body, awaken your heart and lift your spirit. These Yoga classes with Saul will focus on deepening the art of Yoga as a healing practice. He will work with techniques to awaken and balance the life energy in the body. This will calm and focus the mind and open the heart. You will gain a deeper understanding of the foundations of Yoga on all levels of practice.
Friday early evening will start off our weekend workshop involving a mixed level yoga class joining together body, breath, mind and spirit. An energizing and invigorating yoga practice open to all levels.
After a short break the workshop will continue with an introduction into Thai Yoga Massage partner practice.
Thai Yoga massage is an ancient and sacred system of healing with roots in Yoga, Ayurvedic medicine and Buddhist Spiritual practice. This unique system of Yoga therapy combines rhythmic massage, acupressure, deep stretching, gentle twisting, energy work and meditation. This work creates a powerful release of stress and tension, an increase in vital energy and well being. It deepens the connection between, mind, body and spirit for both the giver and receiver.
This Friday evening session will be a guided journey through giving and receiving, a healing and relaxing Thai Yoga massage session, to release tension, increase vitality and lift your spirit. Sign up with a friend or come alone. We will work comfortably clothed on yoga mats on the floor. This workshop is open to everyone, designed to conclude our opening evening in a fun and comforting environment.
Saturday morning will open with an invigorating and energizing Yoga class open to all levels. A wonderful way to begin your Saturday getting in touch with our body, mind and spirit.
Saturday afternoon will be devoted to learning a simplified form of a full body Thai Yoga Therapy session including rhythmic massage, stretching, theory, acupressure of energy lines (nadis) and principles of energetic healing. No prior massage or Yoga experience is necessary. We will work comfortably clothed on mats on the floor. Sign up with a friend or come alone. This workshop is open to everyone. Great for Yogi's, massage therapists and anyone sincerely interested in Yoga, healing and bodywork!
