The ancient healing art of Thai Massage is said to have originated before the time of the Buddha. Often called the lazy man’s yoga the receiver is passive and the practitioner stretches, and compresses their body. When offering Thai Massage or Bodywork we draw from thousands of years of healing, and incorporate elements of acupressure and deep muscle work.
25hr Trauma Sensitive Restorative Yoga Teacher Training on July 26-28, 2019 with Eleanor Bramwell and BodyWise Institute.
In a restorative yoga practice, we open the aperture of our awareness, and we access a state of potency. Through lecture, group discussion, and practicum you will learn how to guide yourself and others into a deeper state of being.
Pathways to this deeper state include supported postures, pranayama, and meditation; the nervous system is regulated, our endocrine (hormonal) system is activated, and we are able to rest and digest life. Measurable results of relaxation include reduction of blood pressure, anxiety, muscle tension, and fatigue. These states are also show to improve immune function, digestion, strengthen the vagal tone, increase heart rate variability, and regulate the nervous system.
Through lecture, self-inquiry, group discussion, practice teaching, and the latest advances in neurobiology, we will investigate trauma theories, trauma informed yoga, and body based healing. After completion of this training you will feel empowered to offer trauma informed yoga classes to a variety of populations. If you are not a yoga teacher, this training will support you in your own self regulation, offer you tools you can use with patients and clients.
