Ashiatsu-Thai Yoga Massage Workshop (Dance of the Foot)
In this introduction to the merging of Ashiatsu and Thai Yoga Massage we will explore how to use your feet in simple, rhythmic and dynamic ways to help bring someone balance and harmony. You will learn some easy and meditative techniques while standing or sitting next to a client, pressing, and moving along energy lines and points.
This is a great workshop for yoga teachers, bodyworkers, or anyone with an interest in using your feet as a tool for healing. There is a deep grounding and nurturing that happens when using the feet and a new way to look at our connection to the earth.
Ashiatsu is a traditional massage from Japan that is performed entirely using the feet. Ashi means foot, and Atsu means pressure. It has origins from ancient monks in Japan. Thai Yoga Massage is a powerful bodywork that originates from Jivaka Komarabhacca, a friend and ayurvedic physician to the Buddha. Both have mindful and strong meditative origins.
Thai Yoga Massage Introduction Workshop
This workshop is a great introduction to anyone wanting to learn a new skill or take part in a mindful activity that helps unify mind, body and spirit.
Thai Yoga Massage combines gentle, yoga-like stretching with acupressure on the energy lines. While there are hundreds of energy lines in the body, this style of massage focuses on the ten main energy lines or Sen.
The massage treatment is carried out on a mat as opposed to a table which allows the practitioner to get the body leverage necessary for the stretches and postures characteristically used in Thai Yoga Massage. Depending on the needs of the client, Thai Yoga Massage techniques may also employ the elbows, knees and feet in addition to the hands.
