I feel that for anyone really serious about practicing Thai Yoga Massage, this course is essential.!The course gives the practitioner so many more exercises and techniques to work with allowing them to give treatments to a much wider range of clientele without straining themselves. The extra knowledge of the energy lines and therapeutic points that run along those lines also gives the practitioner a far greater ability to treat different ailments and problems.
This course is made up of 4 modules of 12 hours each (48 hours teaching time). You are welcome to attend any of the modules in any order, on their own or all of them as one full course.
Following requests from students, I have decided to present the advanced course in a more flexible way. This gives students the choice of how much they are ready to learn and when. Some might choose to do only one or two modules and take the others at a later date or even to repeat some of them.
The Advanced material is vast and has so much depth to it, that students often find it useful to go over it more than once or to take extra time between modules in order to process the information and practice. It also means there's less financial commitment.
A certificate of attendance will be given for each module attended.
To qualify, however, you will need to complete all four modules, do 15 case studies and take a practical and theoretical exam.
Each module will have a focus, covering techniques applied in different positions and parts of the body.
A general theme for the whole Advanced Course is learning to use feet, elbows and knees. Using other parts of the body to apply pressure, allows us to us to work more deeply, with less effort, and saves the wrists from strain.
Other topics that will be covered: becoming more sensitive to energy flow in the receiver, increasing awareness of the breath and a wiser use of one's body, the spiritual dimension - meditations and chanting.
