Restorative and Thai

This workshop is an introduction to Thai Massage and Restorative Yoga. 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. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Naomi will guide you through a 2-hour restorative yoga class and provide gentle massage and assisted stretching throughout the class. Aromatherapy will be incorporated throughout the class. During an extended Savasana (30 minutes), Naomi will offer Thai Massage.

If you’re in need of quality self care, this workshop is for you! 

Please arrive 15 minutes early to get settled in so we can start promptly on time. We lock the studio door when class starts.  

WHAT TO BRING

Please bring a water bottle to stay hydrated and wear loose comfortable clothing. You may want to bring a sweater if you tend to get cold. Bring a yoga mat and any props that you want. However, we have extra yoga mats and plenty of props for each person. 

ALL LEVELS

This class is suitable for yoga students of all levels, yoga teachers, massage therapists, and anyone else in need of quality self-care. 

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. 

DISCLAIMERS

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. 

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.
