This workshop is an introduction to Thai Massage and Restorative Yoga using the wall. These gentle, low impact modalities help us transition out of our sympathetic nervous system (fight, flight, or freeze) and into our parasympathetic system (rest and digest).
THAI MASSAGE is a technique that provides passive, assisted stretching to improve flexibility and mobility.
RESTORATIVE YOGA is a gentle yoga practice using props (such as blocks, blankets, pillows, bolsters, straps, etc.) to hold yoga postures for an extended period of time in order to soften muscles and connective tissues slowly and gently.
WALL YOGA uses the wall for support in restorative poses, such as legs up the wall.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Naomi will guide you through a 2-hour restorative yoga class and provide gentle massage and assisted stretching throughout the class. We will begin with gentle stretches on the wall and then transition to restorative yoga postures on the floor. Aromatherapy will be incorporated throughout the class. During an extended Savasana (30 minutes), Naomi will offer Thai Massage.
This class is suitable for yoga students of all levels, yoga teachers, massage therapists, and anyone else in need of quality self-care.
This workshop does NOT offer CEUs for LMTs, nor does it teach you how to practice Thai massage. The purpose of this workshop is solely for receiving restorative yoga and Thai massage.
If you’re in need of quality self care, this workshop is for you!
Please feel free to reach out if you have questions or concerns to see if this workshop is right for you. We are happy to offer modifications as needed to make this workshop accessible.
While we do offer the option for massage and aromatherapy in this class, you can opt out of the massage and/or aromatherapy portion at any time and still benefit from the restorative yoga portion. We will provide an informed consent prior to class.
