Thai Bodywork Workshop
July 23 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm$40
Thai Bodywork Partner Workshop 2.5 hrs $40 per person, $80 per duo. Solo sign ups will be paired up at the workshop.
Connect, have fun, and feel good giving and receiving Thai Yoga Bodywork, inspired by Thai Massage. This bodywork releases tension, increases flexibility, & promotes ease in the body, mind, & spirit. Jenn will guide you through assisted stretches, compression and pressure point work while lying down on your yoga mat and while seated on a bolster. Yoga experience is not necessary, nor is “being flexible”. We are all capable of giving and receiving healing touch, and practicing loving kindness, which is THE most important part of this work.
Jenn will guide you step by step through several Thai Bodywork techniques in seated and supine positions. You will spend time in kneeling and possibly squatting – please reach out if you are concerned about these shapes hindering your participation. If you are pregnant, have an injury or a situation that may need additional options, let us know ahead of time so we can prepare accordingly. Props are available but feel free to bring your own pillows/ bolsters and blankets. Dress comfortably in clothing that you can easily move in. Layers are recommended as you will build heat when giving the work, and your body temperature will drop when receiving it.
Jenn Cook has been certified in Thai Bodywork since 2013 and has completed numerous trainings with Michael Sitzer, William Hufschmidt, and studied with Pichest and Aon Boonthumme in Chiang Mai.
