Thai Yoga Bodywork is an ancient & mystifying art that has the power to heal the body, clear the mind and uplift the spirit. With its origins in Chinese, Indian and Thai cultures, it combines healing techniques for both the physical and energetic body through stretching, pulling, and rocking techniques to restore the flow of energy, relieve tension, enhance flexibility and range of motion.
