What is Thai Yoga Massage?

Thai Yoga Massage is an ancient healing art that combines the alignment of the breath, yoga asana and mindfulness meditation of Metta (loving compassion) into a flowing dance of continuous rhythmic motion to deliver a soothing and revitalizing experience. TYM is based on an understanding of energy lines and marma points in the body, working with balancing the energetic bodies and freeing & removing any blockages that may present in the physical, mental, emotional bodies. A session of TYM results in restoring a healthy, balanced energetic flow to the recipient. It is a complete therapeutic treatment on its own, and may also be incorporated into other modalities of massage or into yoga classes.

Foundations of Thai Yoga Massage Level I Training will cover how to give a full 1.5 - 2 hour massage. Content will include an introduction to energy lines, breath work, meditation, utilizing proper body mechanics, chanting and Thai yoga. The last day of the training will also include a practicum of giving a 75-minute session to the 'public'. A certification of the "Foundations of Thai Yoga Massage" will be awarded upon completion of the workshop and practicum. No prior experience with Thai Massage is required to apply for the Level I training.

Foundations of Thai Yoga Massage Level II Training will offer another full sequence of Traditional TYM, expanding on the 'Foundations of Thai Yoga Massage Certification Level I.' In addition to covering content that will enable you to give up to a 2.5-3 hour massage, there will be more focus on body mechanics, breath work, side-lying positions, advanced transitions, and working with different body types and 'challenges.'*

To apply for this training one must have completed the 'Foundation of TYM Certification Level I' with Jennifer. Trainees can either apply to take the Level I and Level II training back-to-back. Or, after taking some time to practice the Level I skills, the student must have at least 30 hours of documented practicum of the "Foundation of TYM" sequence. If it has been more than one year between taking the Level I & II trainings, it is recommended that students take a 'refresher course' of the Level I training.
