Yoga Pose Traditional Thai Massage is an ancient system of healing with its roots in Yoga, Ayurvedic medicine and Buddhist spiritual practice. This unique and complete system of Yoga therapy combines rhythmic massage, acupressure, gentle twisting, deep stretching and meditation. It releases tension, increases vitality and creates wholeness of mind, body and spirit in both giver and receiver. The movements and adjustments you will learn are a valuable compliment in Yoga teaching.

Join us for nine transformational days at the beautiful White Lotus Foundation, nestled in the mountains above Santa Barbara on land once sacred to the Chumash Indians who called it Taklushmon--the Gathering Place. During this week you will either begin or deepen your practice of Yoga and meditation. Legendary vegetarian meals and free time to hike, swim in natural rock pools, read or just soak in the hot tub will complement this week of learning, healing and rejuvenation.

In this course you will learn:

Yoga Pose
  • To structure and give a full-body Thai Massage
  • Theory and massage of energy lines (meridians/nadis)
  • Restorative Yoga poses to facilitate deep relaxation
  • Applied Hatha Yoga stretching exercises and breathing exercises
  • Principles of energetic healing
  • Basic therapies for common ailments
  • Using Thai Therapeutic movements to adjust, balance and correct Yoga asanas
  • To work in a meditative state of mind
  • Helping the receiver to experience a deeply relaxed altered state
  • History and theoretical foundations of Thai Yoga Therapy
  • An introduction to and practice of meditation (vipassana and other techniques will be taught)

This course is the equivalent of a two-week course taught in Thailand

This training is open to everyone. It is a great additional modality for Yoga teachers and massage therapists or for anyone interested in well being, healing and bodywork. The work is done in comfortable clothing on a mat. You will have a wonderful experience of learning and rejuvenation with hours of healing massage. No prior Yoga or massage experience is necessary.


All Participants successfully completing the course will receive a certificate of completion. Those wishing a Thai Yoga Therapy Practitioner certification will be given a home study/practice assignment to fulfill after the course.
