Connect with your sangha and yourself in a way that you never have before with what has been dubbed by past participants as "THAI CAMP."
This 9-Day Thai Massage training program is perfect for anyone desiring a deep-dive into the study of the sacred healing art of Thai Massage. Tuition includes teaching and all course materials. Our time together will include focused and rigorous yet gentle study, group meditation, gardening, swimming in the local pond, and plenty of time for practice, rest and integration.
The training covers a full spectrum of massage workshops offered at the Bodhi Sangha School of Thai Massage as well as lifestyle practices, such as daily meditation, karma yoga, asana, pranayama, and more.
*There is no charge for residing at Nine Mountain for the duration of this program, but it is expected that each participant contributes to the well-being of the space with regular karma yoga practices including but not limited to cooking, cleaning, gardening, and more.
Over the course of this first workshop, students will learn an hour and a half long form. Practiced on the floor, this form enables the therapist the use of elbows, knees, forearms and feet in a comfortable and efficient way that utilizes the body dynamic and ones own weight to distribute the force required for the application of the relevant techniques. The recipient lies relaxed and loosely clothed while the practitioner guides them through a series of yogic asanas and applies balancing touch to the body’s major energy lines and points. Thai Massage is an art whose ultimate objective is a perfected self-awareness through the joy of a mutually beneficial healing dance. Level 1 provides the necessary foundation for future techniques to be based upon, but also can serve as a stand alone practice, in and of itself, as students will learn a complete form during this class.
