Thai Yoga Weekend
Traditional Thai Massage is an ancient practice with its roots in Yoga, Ayurvedic medicine and Buddhist spiritual practice. This unique and complete system combines rhythmic massage, acupressure, gentle twisting, deep stretching and meditation. It releases tension, increases vitality and creates wholeness of mind, body and spirit in both giver and receiver.
Join Phoebe and White Lotus® for a nurturing and transformational yoga retreat weekend nestled in our glorious mountain retreat. Rock your mind into that gentle lull of pampered perfection as you have your body rolled into luxurious shapes of yogic bliss. Learn to give or simply enjoy receiving the art of Thai Massage. During this weekend yoga retreat you will also either begin or deepen your practice of Yoga with asana, pranayama and meditation classes daily. Legendary vegetarian meals and free time to hike, swim in natural rock pools, read or just soak in the hot tub will complement this time of learning and rejuvenation.
This weekend training is open to everyone. It is a great additional modality for Yoga teachers and massage therapists or for anyone interested in well being and bodywork. The work is done in comfortable clothing on the mat. You will have a wonderful experience with hours of nurturing massage. No prior Yoga or massage experience is necessary.
