Thai Yoga Assists for Yoga Teachers
Saturday Aug 20, 2016
3:30-5pm
$12 in advance / $15 at the door

Abigail will introduce the basic fundamentals and techniques for applying traditional Thai Yoga Massage into your yoga class. In this 90minute workshop, yoga teachers will learn hands on assists in selected yoga poses, massage techniques to apply while students are in static yoga poses and how to adjust and assist your student's body bringing them into proper alignment. This will help take your student deeper into their yoga pose while relaxing the muscles.
Energy work and massage is always delightful while students are surrendering in Sivasana. You will learn the concept of initiating energy movements through the whole body. Abigail will teach you a short massage series to use on each student at the end of class. This will include hands on bodywork and reiki. As a yoga teacher, you will feel more comfortable with being more "hands-on" in class with your students as well as holding sacred space for healing.

Abigail Says:
Thai Yoga Therapy is my specialty, my belief in healing. I am internationally & nationally trained and certified in ancient Nuad Bo-Rarn style Thai Yoga Therapy. I lived and studied in Chiang Mai, Thailand with my teacher, Chongkol Setthakorn, as well as with several other rishi's in my 2years of living there. This is a very intuitive bodywork that has been practiced and passed down by native Thai people for centuries. I have been practicing since 2008, building a strong foundation in my work. My goal is to continue to spread this love to my community in New Orleans as well as my native home in Alabama!
