Restorative Thai Yoga Workshop

  • Purusha Yoga 3729 Balboa Street San Francisco, CA, 94121 United States (map)

Ahhhhhh! Treat yourself to an indulgent evening of giving and receiving a relaxing and restorative full body massage. During this workshop, you will work with a partner taking turns to massage each other and apply all of the exercises learned during our two hours together. 

No massage experience needed.

Bring a partner, or we are happy to find you one in class.


MORE DETAILS: Head, shoulders, knees and toes... and back and belly too! We will start with the head and then to the shoulders, introducing ancient techniques to unlock stress and tension.  Moving onward and downward through the spine, low back, hips, legs, and ending with a full foot massage.

Giving and receiving thai body work is a dance between recipient and giver and is held in a sacred space of meditation, deep peace, relaxing music and tranquil environment. Let us set the stage, and give you all you need to learn the masterful art of Traditional Thai Yoga Body Work, accessing and opening all major energy lines / channels of prana, chi and life giving health.

This is an introduction workshop and is an excellent way to explore this as a path of healing, complimentary therapy, and holistic well being. Thai Yoga Body Work is a traditional healing modality that has been practiced for thousands of years and bridges the energy sciences of classic yoga from India, Ayurveda and Northern Asian Energy Channels.

$45 in advance / $55 at the door
