Essentials of Thai Yoga Therapy
Mobility, Consciousness, Compassion, and Goodwill
This immersive, hands-on training will empower you to expand your professional repertoire—or begin a new career. You will gain the knowledge and experience to facilitate a unique somatic and cognitive process that improves physical health along with emotional and mental well-being and can be used with a wide range of clients.
Deon de Wet will focus on working the energy lines along the legs, arms, and back by applying Thai-style acupressure, with the client lying face up, face down, and seated. While the emphasis is on practical application, you will also be introduced to the theory, history, and philosophy behind this highly effective healing system.
You will learn:
- How to perform a complete series of highly effective acupressure techniques, optimally sequenced for maximum therapeutic effect
- The basics of how to work with energy in the body
- Physical manipulation and assisted stretching, enabling you to quickly help anyone to feel much better
- How to use your whole body, including your feet, knees, elbows, and hands (palms and thumbs) to target different areas of the client’s body.
You will walk away with effective tools for mindful movement and conscious communication that have lasting physical, mental, and spiritual benefits for both the practitioner/giver as well as the client/receiver.
