Thai Yoga bodywork is an ancient and sacred healing art with deep roots in yogic and Buddhist practice. It combines the alignment of the breath, yoga stretches, joint mobilization, soft tissue manipulation, rhythmic rocking, acupressure and energy balancing. It relieves muscular tension and restores your body's balance. Health benefits include relief from many ailments-- asthma, migraines, anxiety, stress and depression, to name a few. Thai Yoga bodywork rejuvenates and relaxes both the recipient and practitioner.
