Thai Yoga Massage In Motion with Dave Hoyle
This 3-day course will focus on how to move in a fluid, rhythmical and effortless way, creating an elemental ‘dance’ between giver and receiver.
This is an advanced course for qualified Thai Yoga Massage and Shiatsu Practitioners. Sequential techniques will be taught in Supine and Prone. When we introduce gentle rhythmic movements, rocking and pulsing into a treatment, creativity and playfulness can flourish. This approach naturally develops precision, touch and positioning. A TYM treatment can be defined by how fluidly we transition between positions. In this way, transitional movements can become techniques in their own right. Practicing in this way requires that we move deeply into the breath. Over the 3 days, we will explore how to ‘listen and connect’ to our client’s own individual rhythm.
Underpinning the course are the movement fundamentals of Tai Chi and Qi Gong:
This will help us to find a deeper connection to our own energetic systems and move in a much more integrated and effortless way. The more mindful we are of our own movement and structural integrity, the greater our capacity and sensitivity to touch.
This more dynamic approach to Thai Massage greatly increases:
• energetic and fluid circulation
• joint and spinal mobility
• muscular and fascial release
• calming of the nervous system
Rhythmical movement is especially effective for those clients who struggle to relax in a treatment. The feeling of security from being softly and gently ‘held’ within motion is deeply nurturing. Most of the techniques covered in the course can be modified to treat any age and condition.
