Thai Yoga Massage level 1 in Ghent april 2017 with Thierry Bienfaisant

For both the giver and receiver, Thai Yoga Massage is a sacred dance, a meditation in movement
It is a transformative and healing journey, A deep experience on the way we move, interact, communicate and the way we touch.

The core of this 5 days program : Foundations, principles and structure of Thai Yoga Massage focus on the principles of beeing : Presence – Attention and Intention

The course is inspired by the Dhamma and by the instruction of two Thai Massage masters: Chayuth – dynamic, rhythmic style and Pichet – static, deep, focussing on the importance of feeling.
The combination of this two influences of the northern style of thai massage offers a holistic experience, a sacred dance…

The practice engages a state of meditation where deep stretches inspired by asanas are rhythmically applied along with pressure on sen lines of the body. Healing occurs in a state of mindfulness, equanimity, compassion and shared happiness, where tensions are released and the free flow of energy resumes.
