Also considered “yoga for lazy people”, Thai Massage is an ancient healing system developed by a Buddhist physician over 2500 years ago and helps to restore balance and well-being within the body. Thai Massage is usually performed on the floor and both partners wear comfortable clothing allowing for movement. No oils are used in Thai Massage and the practice is often also called Thai Yoga Massage because the therapist uses hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and adjustments that can include muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. In this workshops students will learn how to give and receive Thai Massage focusing on the legs, shoulders, low back and hips. No prior experience with bodywork is necessary and these workshops are open to people who come with a partner or without.
Adi Carter is an internationally celebrated yoga teacher and bodyworker who draws from a background of over 20 years in sports injury management and adventuring to keep her always inspired and problem solving ways to strengthen and increase productivity in the body. Her classes focus on structural alignment principles combined with energy work and touch based off of Eastern medicine and she uses Thai Massage as a basis for physically adjusting students in yoga classes and also for teaching students (and teachers) how to safely adjust each other and begin to tap in to their natural healing abilities.

During RESTorative yoga, periods of deliberate stillness create a safe space to explore letting go. Often the greatest challenge of this practice is allowing that stillness. Acknowledging that reality, RESTorative first uses gentle movement to help release excess energy and physical tension. Props such as blankets, bolsters and blocks are then used to create a cradle of support into which the body can let go. While in supported poses, engaging the mind with conscious breath work and guided relaxation encourages deep physical and emotional release. Through discussion and practice, we will explore what RESTorative is, why it’s beneficial and how to incorporate supported postures into your home or teaching practice. Workshop includes a 90-minute RESTorative class. No experience necessary, just a desire to find greater ease in the body/mind.
