150 HR SOMATIC THAI YOGA MASSAGE TRAINING
Learn through private mentoring sessions booked at your convenience in studio or ONLINE and our beautiful online learning platform in this NHPC Accredited Practitioner Program
This beautiful program takes you on a journey where Thai Massage and Restorative Yoga meet. Integrating the sister art of Ayurveda, you are taught how to support clients physically, emotionally and mentally via the three Dosha of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Upon completion of this program, you will have the resources to offer three distinct Thai Yoga Massage sessions that are each up to 120 minutes in length. This program speaks to RMTs, Counselors, Yoga Teachers and enthusiasts, giving you skills that can be integrated on the massage table, in yoga classes and everyday life. Having the ability to support others in better accessing and moving through their bodies is a gift in and of itself.
Trauma respectful practice asks that we provide hands on assists instead of adjustments and corrections. When we approach practice from this place, a place of holding space for others with gentleness, we begin to understand how profound touch is. This program immerses you in the art of Thai Yoga Massage, Ayurveda and Restorative Yoga practices for creating powerful one on one sessions. For Yoga Teachers, this content will inspire your group yoga class offerings and help you develop a private practice. Completion of requisite hours will give you a Practitioner Designation with the NHPC, allowing you to offer insurance receipts to your clients.
Mandorla Yoga Institute has been a Yoga Alliance Registered School since 2007 and is accredited by the NHPC and the Canadian Government as an Educational Institution.

Embodiment Retreat (Option to take an online elective course in lieu)
The Embodiment Retreat provides students with an opportunity to apply their Thai massage skills and to experience Thai massage as a recipient. In addition to Thai Massage practice, students are given rich Embodiment Yoga experiences. This retreat is held 3 x per year (Summer, Spring and Fall). While accommodations are not included in the cost, we try to ensure that one retreat per year provides students with an accessible commute and offer affordable accommodation when possible. Students unable to attend the retreat are given the option to choose any elective online course of their choosing from the Mandorla course library.
Embodiment Yoga™ Practice
The Mandorla approach to Thai Yoga Massage is rooted in the way we approach yoga. Before you begin a practice where you support others in experiencing sensation in their bodies, we ask you to take time to cultivate your own experience through Embodiment Yoga™ Practices.
Students are asked to facilitate 3 filmed Thai Yoga Massage sessions from start to finish, one for each Dosha. Filmed sessions are to be uploaded to YouTube for your mentors review. Please also include a copy of your client intake form and welcome letter.
Students are required to spend a total of 30 documented hours practicing the Thai Yoga Massage techniques on real bodies, 10 hours per each Dosha sequence.
