Thai Yoga Massage Introduction Workshop

Date: 14 April 2019
Workshop Leader: Marek Gabor, AKA: Jungle man
Venue: Jungle Healing Studio, Arora Hotel, Southgate Avenue, Crawley, RH10 6LW
Time: 11am – 1pm
Cost: £25 including a healthy snack. Drinks also provided.

Join me on Sunday 14th April for a morning taster in the healing art of Thai Yoga Massage. This class 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.

NB: You will have the opportunity to join me on my in depth, twelve day, accredited Thai Yoga Massage Diploma Course following your taster which begins on Saturday 31st August 2019. This course provides you with the chance to enhance your existing massage repertoire, the option to change your career and apply Thai Yoga Massage techniques with mindful presence and confidence to family and friends. 

Ashiatsu-Thai Yoga Massage Workshop (Dance of the Foot)

Dates: 24 – 26 May 2019
Workshop Leaders: Marek Gabor, AKA: Jungle Man and Andrew Zorich.
Venue: Jungle Healing Studio, Arora Hotel, Southgate Avenue, Crawley, RH10 6LW
Cost: £150

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.

Healthy snacks and drinks are provided during the break. Please bring socks and a refillable water bottle. Smile, open your mind, connect with your breath and you have all you need…

Teachers:

Marek Gabor (Jungle Man), an experienced Thai Yoga Massage teacher and bodyworker, one of few authorized teachers in the Sunshine Network, U.K.

Andrew Zorich, an integrative bodyworker and Ashiatsu practitioner from Seattle that learned from a direct family lineage from Shisou Perfecture, Japan.
