Yoga Weekend @ ITM Thai Hand Berlin
Yoga Weekend at ITM Thai Hand Berlin with Tia Sallinen
This weekend is dedicated to the similarities of Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage. These practices support and compliment each other. By practising both, you are bringing more awareness to both fields of these ancient practices.
Tia Sallinen is a dedicated yogini who is teaching workshops and classes all weekend at ITM Thai Hand International Training Massage School Berlin. Join for a class, a workshop or the whole weekend if you have the chance. Everyone is welcome!
11.30am -1.15 pm Vinyasa Class : Arm balances + inversions
This class will teach you different techniques of how to balance on your arms and go upside down. Inversions are good for your heart and your brain as they give a little rest to the cardia vascular system and flush your brain with fresh oxygen. This is a strong class and you need a some yoga or movement background for it.
Not for complete beginners.
2.30pm - 5.00 pm Thai Massage for Yogis and Body workers
Yoga and thai massage has a lot of similarities. They both acknowledge sen lines or nadis, in the body and you can use both techniques to open the energy lines of the body. Thai yoga massage ITM-style has a lot of yoga stretches, but adjusted by your massage therapist. Both yoga and thai massage help open the chakras and strengthen and relax the body at the same time. Both practices activate the parasympathetic nervous system.
If you are not a yoga teacher, but you are in love with anatomy and how the body functions this workshop is for you. A massage therapist, a personal trainer or a shiatsu practitioner will benefit from this workshop as it will give you more tools to work with your customers and yourself.
Learn thai yoga massage techniques that you can use in your yoga classes/ private classes:
- how to help your student into a deeper relaxation
- thai yoga massage adjustments for supta badakonasana, bhujangasana, dhanurasana, balasana, halasana, supta padangustasana…(all of these stretches are used in regular stretching classes and gym as well)
- face massage
Sunday 12. 11. 2017:
10am-12pm Vinyasa Class: Hip opening + backbends
This class will leave you feeling light and open. We hold much tension in our hips that when not released can keep us irritated. Our work today is to open the hips and let go of that nagging feeling in our hip joints. Also we will move up the chest and give a good stretch to the muscles around the heart so there is a vast openness in our heart and we can feel lighter again. This class will work well with the meditation class that follows.
This is an intermediate class and you will need some yoga background for it.
Not for complete beginners.
1pm-2.30pm Metta Meditation - the heart of thai massage
In the beginning of the class we will learn simple meditation techniques to calm the mind. Then we will move to the ancient Buddhist meditation technique that is also called the “heart of thai massage”. It’s importance in healing work will be underlined here and it will give you a broader aspect to your thai massage techniques.
We will finish with a relaxation. You do not need any previous experience for this class.
