This twelve hour course is designed to allow students to delve a little deeper into the art of Thai Yoga Massage and perhaps help students decide if they wish to continue their studies with Metta River in longer trainings. You will learn a 60 minute form which will allow you to begin practicing this ancient art on friends and family. This course is great for Yoga students who wish to inform their practice with the art of touch and teachers who want to improve their ability to give adjustments in class.

After completing this course, students will know how to:
~Perform a basic 60min. Thai Yoga Massage session
~Incorporate the fundamentals of flowing transitions between postures
~Maintain proper body alignment & stances that create a mutually beneficial massage for practitioner & recipient
~Integrate "Metta" (compassion) and meditation into your work
