What is Thai Yoga?
Thai Yoga is a deeply relaxing and revitalizing form of yoga/body integration that blends assisted Yoga stretches and the techniques of Traditional Thai Massage. This unique and radical approach to energy balancing creates a blissfully integrated experience.
Results typically include a deep release of blocked energy in body and mind, as well as improved spinal alignment, better physical balance, improved joint mobility and increased flexibility. Clients who receive regular treatments also report enhanced mental clarity, deeper sleep, greater endurance and more enjoyment of sports, work and play.
Thai Yoga is performed with the client comfortably dressed on a special mat on the floor. Typically, the practitioner will use most of his body, including feet, knees, forearms (and hands) to weave together a sophisticated sequence of deeply healing stretches, rhythmic acupressure and gentle rocking moves. Sessions are typically about one hour long.

The practitioner will also request that the client arrive neither too hungry nor too full (ie: if one is hungry, they should eat; if one is full, they should digest). If you are coming immediately after work, it would be appropriate to have a small snack mid-afternoon, or a hour before arriving.
