Practical Thai Massage For Yoga Teachers
with Rebecca Cohen, E-RYT 500

Join Rebecca for an intensive weekend of thai massage for yoga teachers. Thai massage is a practical tool for yoga teachers, as it helps to deepen your knowledge of anatomy through hands on facilitated movement. Thai massage is said to be the “lazy man’s yoga”, where the practitioner guides the student through a series of postures. Thai massage is typically used as a stand alone practice, but for yoga teachers, it gives a deeper understanding of range of motion, actions of muscles, fascia, and nerves. Learning this practice will greatly enhance your understanding of anatomy and lay the ground work for becoming an expert in hands on adjustments as a yoga teacher. Not to mention, you will be able to give your private yoga students a special touch with their yoga sessions that will keep them coming back for more. 

Dates: April 22 & 23 (9am-6pm)
Tuition: $360
18 CEUs

* Students: loose comfortable clothing and/or easy fitting yoga pants, short or long sleeve t-shirts. Please be sure to trim finger nails very short for this course.
