Nuad Borarn (Vedic Thai Massage-Assisted Yoga) is viewed as a martial art of healing and is reported to manifest instant positive results. In Thailand, Bodywork is utilized medicinally as a cherished and revered indulgence to remedy the prominent social ailments such as emotional stress and physical inertia. Thai-Yoga sessions inspire the soul and tranquilize the body.

Customarily, a Thai-Yoga session lasts about 2 hours, during which there is a surrendering release which allows deeper and deeper physical and mental ‘openings’. Flowing rhythmic compressions using the feet, knees, palms, elbows, forearms and fingers are blended with exotic stretching positions known as asanas and disciplined breath control known as pranayama, effectively producing a balanced and harmonious symbiotic communication integrating the body’s vital systems, including mechanical- musculoskeletal, electrical-neural, chemical-glandular.

This course teaches a longer 2-hour sequence of Thai-Yoga Bodywork Techniques. You’ll watch various demonstrations and take notes in your manual, then practice giving and receiving with various partners in the class. You will learn:

  • How to apply the 2-hour sequence of Thai-Yoga Bodywork asanas and techniques, including transitions.
  • How to use breath, meditation, mantra, bandha, and Yogic techniques to enhance the quality of the session.
  • To comprehend the theories of releasing the energy on a physical, emotional, and spiritual plane.

“Vedic Thai Massage – Assisted Yoga is love. It is a sacred offering, a conscious contribution to self-realization and soul revelation, the goal and purpose of life.  With deliberate and skillful intentions of joyful communication, Thai-Yoga massage produces profound pleasure and inspiring tranquility physically and psychologically by replacing old, restricted energy patterns within the body/spirit…. Nuad Borarn is one of the Original Matriarchs of healing.  Its distinction is true in its value of producing dynamic well-being and serenity.” – Mukti (Michael Buck)
