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, Prone and Side Position.
When we introduce gentle rhythmic movements, rocking and pulsing into a treatment, creativity and playfulness can flourish. This approach naturally develops precision, touch and our body positioning in relation to the reciever.
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. We will explore over the 3 days how to ‘listen and connect’ to our client’s own unique rhythm and vibration.
We will explore the movement fundamentals of Tai Chi and Qi Gong:
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.
We will also explore advanced body percussion techniques.
This style of Thai Massage originates back to Ajarn Chaiyuth Pryasith and was further developed by some of his students who also integrated Osteopathic treatment and technique.
Dave Hoyle has been practising Thai Yoga Massage for over 20 years. He has a full time practice in Matlock, Derbyshire.
He has studied with many great Masters in Asia and Europe, especially Pichet Boonthume, Asokonanda and Kira Balaskas.
His practice in Dynamic Thai Massage and OsteoThai has been greatly inspired and influenced by his primary teachers, Ralf Marzen, David Luttand Krishna Takis.
Dave is also a qualified QiGong teacher. His treatments and teachings are very much informed by his movement and QiGong practices.
