For many of us, we gather a lot of tension from our day to day life. Over time, the accumulated stress may cause physical imbalances such as headaches, migraines, indigestion, and insomnia. As well, we may also notice some emotional disharmonies like overthinking, irritation, anxiety, and sadness. This two day workshop on Thai Acupressure and Yoga Nidra is designed for those who would like to experience true relaxation on the physical and energetic planes.
Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep) is a powerful technique in which you learn to relax consciously. True relaxation, as few have experienced in our modern world, is actually an experience far beyond our usual identification of resting, such as sitting down with a cup of coffee, reading a book, taking small naps or even our regular eight hours a night sleep. For absolute relaxation, you must remain aware. This is yoga nidra, the state of dynamic sleep. The ultimate state of relaxation is reached by turning inwards, away from our outer experiences. In this training, you will discover how to deliver a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation.
Thai Acupressure Massage:
Thai Massage is commonly known as Thai yoga massage and Thai yoga therapy. It is known in Thailand as nuat phaen boran(“traditional style massage”) or nuat Thai(“Thai massage”). Based on a combination of influences from India, China, and Thai traditions, this healing art form has been handed down through the generations mostly via oral tradition. Thai massage is directly related to yogic principles originating in India. It is also in many ways similar to Chinese massage techniques such as tui naiand reflexology as it is based on the theory of the flow of energy lines that run through the body. Thai massage can prevent bone degeneration, decrease stress, treat back pain, and contribute to psychological well-being. It can be varied to suit a wide range of physical needs, and is suitable for all ages and abilities.
Chinese acupressure is based on the meridian system in traditional Chinese medicine. Meridians are energetic channels in the body in which our energy flows through. When energy stagnation occurs, we may feel fatigued, pain, and unease. There are numerous essential acupressure points in our body that can help relieve physical and emotional discomforts. Some of these discomforts may include anxiety, worries, headaches, insomnia, indigestion, sinus congestion, and more. In this workshop, you will learn the ways of traditional Thai massage in combination with Chinese meridians acupressure points.
