A Taste of Thai Yoga Massage
Saturday, October 20th from 2-4:30pm with Jennifer Yarro

Thai Yoga Massage has been practiced in the temples of Thailand by Buddhist Monks for over 2500 years. This unique practice combines assisted yoga asana, massage and the mindfulness of Metta Bhavana (loving kindness meditation) into a flowing dance of continuous rhythmic motion. Through this rhythmic dance, the giver experiences meditation in motion while the receiver enters a state of balance and tranquility.

Thai Massage has many benefits for the individual receiving, including reduction of stress and improvement of overall circulation. As one is moved through gentle yoga-like positions and offered hands-on compression, one can enhance their flexibility and greater range of motion. In turn, reducing tension and strain in the muscles and organs. Many remark on the overall increase of energy levels after receiving Thai Massage. The practice is known as lazy-man’s yoga as one simply needs to receive and no experience is necessary. The giver, when using proper body mechanics, also receives a gentle yoga practice combined with a steady breath flow which induces a relaxed state of being. It is a powerful gift to offer one’s presence with combined skills of Thai Massage to invoke ease, comfort, and relaxation.

Join us for this hands-on experiential workshop of the art of giving and receiving. This 2.5 hour workshop is open to yoga teachers, massage therapists, body workers, or simply anyone who desires to learn & share this ancient healing art form! Come with a friend or meet some new ones there!

This luxurious experience will be skillfully led by Jennifer Yarro (Amie Lytle’s teacher!). She is the owner & director of Frog Lotus Yoga and the founder of the Triple Gem School of Thai Massage, is highly trained in Thai Massage, having traveled to Thailand many times over the years to study directly with Thai masters. Jennifer has been a practitioner of the art for 15 years as well as teaching nationally & internationally for the past 10 years. Although she is sought out for the lineage she carries, Jennifer is very humble in her offerings. She is passionate about the integrity of the practice, and meticulously imparts her knowledge of authentic Traditional Thai Massage to her students, always with a ‘warm smile and a happy heart!

Yoga Nidra
Saturday, October 27th from 2-3:30pm with Emily Masnoon

Yoga Nidra means “yogic sleep”. This meditative practice systematically guides you through each layer of being, called the koshas, which include the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, and spiritual layers, making this healing practice inclusive of your whole being. You don’t need any experience with yoga or meditation. All you need to do is lie down and listen. You will leave feeling calm, clear, and rested.

More About Yoga Nidra:
Yoga Nidra induces the relaxation response, our body’s own healing state where revitalization and regeneration occurs. Our body knows exactly what to do to attain and maintain perfect health and equilibrium, but we need to go into the necessary state to turn on the healing switch. Yoga Nidra brings us effortlessly, compassionately, and rapidly into the healing state.

Research conducted at well recognized universities and medical centers including Stanford University, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Ohio State University, Medical College of Ohio, Banaras University and others, shows that regular practice of Yoga Nidra offers a viable means of prevention and reversal of numerous ailments and diseases, including cardiovascular, stress- related illness, chronic pain, and psychosomatic conditions.
