Theraputic Thursday Mini-Workshops with Laura
October 23rd: Integral Yoga & The Teachings of Swami Satchidananda from the Yogaville Ashram
This workshop will cover the philosophy of Integral Yoga as taught by Swami Satchidananda. This will include the principles for living and wisdom that has been passed down from the Swami on how to lead a happier more peaceful life. We will go through a complete Integral Yoga style yoga practice, comprised of breathing exercises, short meditations, sun salutations and asana. This workshop is a great way to experience a different style of practice and absorb the teachings of a traditional guru. Accessible for all levels of practice.
November 6th; Yoga at the Wall
Come and learn how something as simple as a wall can be one of the most valuable practice tools. We will explore traditional yoga postures in new ways, to bring a deeper level of understanding to your practice. We will also learn some new ways to open and realign the body to bring a new element of awareness to your practice. The wall is a perfect place to perform posture adjustments and experience balance postures with ease and support. Through yoga practice at the wall we also learn to use the “walls” we encounter in our life to our advantage.
November 20th: Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra
Restorative yoga is a way of practicing postures passively while supported and positioned with props. The result is a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience for both the mind and the body. Through this practice we will learn how to quiet the mind and release deeply held muscle tension to find a deep level of peace. The practice will end with yoga nidra, a guided deep relaxation to help you float into Savasana. You will leave this blissful workshop feeling completely renewed!

*** Thai Yoga Bodywork ***
Massage and Manual Stretching
At Hummingbird Yoga Studio
( And Soon to be offered at Bee Well Boutique and Spa )
With Laura Germanio OTR, RYT
What is Thai Yoga Bodywork?
Thai Yoga bodywork combines passive yoga stretches with massage techniques to relax the body and quiet the mind. Each technique works to open the energy channels of the body to create balance and leave the receiver feeling calm yet invigorated. A Thai Bodywork session incorporates elements of acupressure, massage, meditation, assisted stretching, joint mobilizations, energy work and yoga postures with a basis in the science of Ayurveda.
What Does a Session Look Like?
Thai Yoga Bodywork is done on a large mat or cushion on the floor. Both the therapist and the participant are dressed in “Yoga” type attire. The room is prepared with soothing music and low lighting. The therapist moves, manipulates and massages the participant into passive yoga postures to enhance the feeling of opening and relaxation. The movement though out the session is slow and meditative, as the therapist uses their hands, forearms, elbows and knees to guide movements and apply pressure. The traditional treatment session is 90 minutes long to enable the therapist to perform a full body treatment.
What are the Benefits of Thai Yoga Bodywork?
The Thai Yoga Bodywork techniques combine stretching with manual massage to bring about a release of held tension. The nervous system is calmed, the internal organs are massaged and circulation enhanced. The body becomes balanced, relaxed and open to enhance overall health. Upon completion of the session there is a feeling of deep peace and wellbeing. A specialized Thai Bodywork treatment can be specialized to address the individual client’s injuries, health concerns or imbalances.
What is the Theory behind Thai Yoga Bodywork?
Traditional Thai massage puts a strong emphasis on the relationship between the therapist and participant. The Therapist is in a deeply focused and meditative state to improve communication and receptivity to the subject’s needs. The therapist moves slowly and mindfully to convey the feeling of Metta or loving-kindness. In this system the body is seen as a dynamic entity of interconnected energy, emotion, spirit and physical components. If any of the energy lines (Sen Lines & meridians) in the body are blocked or unbalanced it can lead to difficulty in these components. The personalized treatment received during a Thai Bodywork sessions opens these energy channels to create balance and harmony throughout all systems of the body. There is also a strong connection to the science of Ayurveda. Each component used by the therapist works to bring balance to the three doshas (vata, pitta, kapha). The emphasis is on creating balance in the body to prevent dis-ease.
