YOGA & MEDITATIONYoga & Meditation ClassesYoga or Meditation - One to OneFAQ'sYoga & Meditation Health Questionnaire
This Introduction to Thai Yoga Massage Therapy is aimed both for:
After completing the workshop you will have the basic skills and techniques to be able to give a friend or member of the family a simple and effective Thai foot and leg massage to help ease common everyday aches and pains, and to lovingly connect through touch.
The day will start with an introduction talk covering the basic history, background and theoretical foundation of Thai Yoga Massage, followed by a practical demonstration.
Throughout the day, you will learn to give a full foot massage, some techniques for the back, neck and shoulders, and a relaxing face massage to finish.
Thai Yoga Massage is well known for its balancing and restorative qualities. The treatment is both relaxing and energising, and especially useful for relieving tension and pain.
Through massaging others, you’ll become aware of your own breath, and learn about the relationship between giving and receiving.
The Thai Yoga Practitioner cultivates a centred state of being, becoming a vessel for the physical application of loving kindness that is at the heart of traditional TYM.
The day starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm, with an hour for lunch.

Completing the workshop on a 1-2-1 (or you and a friend or two) basis can be arranged at a time that is beneficial to both student and teacher. It can be hugely beneficial as this option focuses on you alone. As there is only one student it will be completed in a shorter time, usually between 2.5 & 3 hours.

Barbara is excellent at personally tailoring her teaching to each individual students needs. Her approach is calming, knowledgeable and professional, immediately putting you at ease. As a trained massage therapist myself, I have attended courses with many different teachers and therapists. It was so refreshing when I began the course with Barbara and was actually introduced to massage techniques that I had never before experienced, delivered with such kindness and patience! I was impressed! She seems to know intuitively where to encourage and guide, and her teaching produce excellent results, always leaving me feeling confident in my ability. I loved doing the course and am now planning on continuing with Barbara and working through the Advanced Techniques.
I have been doing Yoga with Barbara for many years. During my time I have found Barbara to be patient and compassionate. She takes great care to explain each movement and how to do the position with respect for your joints. Also if you suffer with an injury she tells you how to adjust the movement to protect your injury. The class is small and personal and the setting for her studio is fantastic with views across the valley, even watching the sun go down, whilst practicing Yoga. The class isn’t just about movement, Barbara takes time for relaxation and you always come away feeling mindful.
I feel that Barbara’s approach to massage shows her thoughtfulness and consideration for her clients and this has the effect of leaving the spirit uplifted and the body well and truly stretched after every session.
