Giving & Receiving Presence: Thai Massage Daylong Workshop

  • altus sports institute 1934 14th Street Santa Monica, CA, 90404 United States (map)

Thai massage is about doing less and feeling more; a meditation on presence and unconditional loving kindness. It sounds simple -- and it is -- but it's not always easy. It's a journey of connection, self-love, and allowing ourselves to be held and nurtured by each other's presence.

Sonia & Sarah will will guide you to give and receive several Thai sequences, including supine (on your back), sidelying, and seated, connecting to the sweetness of your inner therapist, and melting into receptivity.

A perfect treat to culminate the year and ground yourself through the holiday crazies.

*This day offers invaluable tools for yoga teachers, massage therapists, and energy workers who wish to develop a new dimension of healing touch for students or clients.

Bring a friend or make one there!

Sonia and Sarah have been teaching together since 2010. They love few things more than co-teaching Thai massage! Sarah began studying massage after a knee injury in 2003 with a year-long program in Chicago. In 2007, she discovered the magic and ease of Thai Massage and never turned back. Sonia also discovered Thai Massage in 2007 and traveled the world studying and sharing this beautiful therapy. Both have trained at the Thai Massage circus in Laos under the lineage of Asokananda and have continued to study with many renown teachers around the world, as well as through their healing practices as therapists.
