Created by Stefani Wilton, from over 21 years as a practitioner in Thai Yoga Massage and therapeutic yoga, our 150-Hour Training in Somatic Thai Yoga Massage Bodywork honours the foundations of Traditional Thai Yoga Massage while integrating the practices of somatic and restorative yoga with the sister art of Ayurveda. This focused approach to Thai Yoga Massage teaches you how to support clients physically, emotionally, and energetically via the three Dosha of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. By integrating the adaptive skills of restorative yoga, somatic processing, and craniosacral techniques, you can offer customized experiences for your clients that allow them to work with their emotional health while improving their nervous system regulation.

This program speaks to Registered Massage Therapists, Counselors, Yoga Teachers, and anyone who wants to give and receive this beautiful healing modality; giving you skills that can be integrated on the massage table, in yoga classes, and in everyday life. Create your own 60- and 90-min Thai Yoga Massage sessions that are tailored to the physical, energetic, and emotional needs of your clients.

 

* For Yoga Teachers, this content will inspire your group yoga class offerings and help you develop a private practice.

 

*For counselors, somatic therapists, and psychotherapists, this designation can provide you with an avenue that allows you to provide touch as an adjunct offering within your practice.

This training goes beyond the standard 85-hour Thai Massage Training, giving you skills that set your practice apart by integrating Ayurveda, Somatic Therapy, and Traditional Thai Yoga Massage with Embodiment Practices, Craniosacral, and Energywork with Restorative Yoga to provide you with the skills to provide sessions that support the body and the mind.
