Event description

Description

This one day workshop for exercise and movement professionals and students will introduce the healing method of Thai Massage. Participants will learn to stretches, presses and rocking techniques, and gain experience feeling muscle release, fascial line traction and connections throughout the body. Students will learn to leverage their weight allowing for their proper biomechanics to translate to their recipient in seated and supine positions. Thai Massage provides an opportunity to sense physical balance and imbalance. Techniques and methodologies learned in this workshop can be modified and practiced with clients, partners and family. This workshop will teach you sense stretch limits, help you gain experience with hands on body manipulation, sharpen your intuition to address whole body imbalances.

There are so many techniques to learn in this practice. We will just scratch the surface to give you some foundation.

Why I am offering this workshop?

I love Thai Massage. I find it hugely rewarding, constantly evolving, beneficial for others and for myself even as the giver. I believe anyone who works towards guiding others to better phyical engagement should operate with the best interests of their recipients in mind. The foundation of Thai Massage is "Metta" (loving kindness). I offer this workshop because I believe it's a practice to be shared!

Comfortable clothing to move in, 1 pillow, 1 blanket, a water bottle, money for lunch and a notebook and camera.

FAQs

What is Thai Massage?

I have a description and more pictures on my facebook page.

This seems expensive. How does this compare to other courses?

Introductory Thai Massage courses in Toronto are often a full weekend and cost upwards of $400. This is a short introduction priced for university students as an introduction for those already studying and learning about the body. I'm happy to tell you more about Thai Massage schools if your interested, whether or not you're registered for this workshop. :) Also...early bird tickets for this workshop are available at 1st and 2nd tier prices while tickets last. If you hav emore questions about this talk to me.

Can I sign up with someone who is not a KINE student? Like my boyfriend/girlfriend?

Yes absolutely. While they may not apply the massage principals with the depth of anatomy you will, the fundamentals of giving Thai Massage do not require an indepth knowledge of anatomy but rather patience, receptiveness and metta (loving kindness). That being said...Thai Massage is not intended for romantic purposes. In fact this practice began in temples.

Is there parking?

Yes, there is a Green P parking lot across the street and some street parking. Or you can try your luck in the "No Frills" parking lot just south of the studio.

Is it accessible by TTC?

Yes. The studio is easily accessible from York University or from the Bloor subway line by these two busses.

- The 41 Junction bus from Dundas West station runs every 5-10 minutes and stops at Pacific and Dundas; kitty corner from the studio.

- The 41 Keele from York University or Keele Station runs frequently and stops a 5 minute walk from the studio at Keele and Dundas.

How many people will be taking the workshop?

There is space for 10 people (5 pairs of partners).

Will I be certified to practice Thai Massage after this workshop?

This workshop is not for certification purposes but rather to offer an introduction at an affordable rate without committing to an entire weekend. If you like it there are a few excellent schools in Toronto you can continue your studies with. I will happily give you some information on them.
