Description:
This one day training is the next step for students of Michael Sitzer, who have already completed the Thai Yoga Bodywork certification program.  This course came out of a request from a student who has been practicing for a few years and is now ready for more. There are so many nuances and additional techniques that can be added into the flow that were just not possible to include in the original training. So, here you have it...The next level!    My idea is to take time in each body position (Supine, Side Lying, Double Leg stretches, Prone, Childs and Seated) and add in additional options for all of these. Some techniques will be brand new and some will simply be additions to the techniques you should already be familiar with.    This is an impromptu course, so it has not been approved for CE hours. Nor is there a manual or DVD. I will allow photos to be taken during the class so you take your own notes with pictures. I would still prefer not having videos recorded.    If time permits, I am open to having class members present their favorite new Thai techniques. I am also interested in having some discussion around people's experience with the work so far and discussing any questions or issues that have arisen.   This class will be limited to 20 people and only for my Thai certified practitioners.   Hope to see you there.  Date: Sunday February 26 - 10-5pm Cost: $95 To avoid Eventbrite fees, I also accept payments by check:   Michael Sitzer 14 Lookout Rd Asheville, NC 28804 contact Michael directly at 828-774-2662 or [email protected] more info at: www.thaiyogatrainings.com If no video appears below, go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oss102RRNfI

Are you looking for a quick crash course to help you find mental strategies or breathing strategies to cope with labor?  Does your partner need some guidance on how to support you during your birth?  Do you have some fears or anxieties about the big day and how you are going to get through it?  Comfort measures are not just for an unmedicated vaginal birth, but are useful and often most needed when labor does not go the way we planned. Join us for this 1 1/2 hour class to give mom's tools to feel safe and strong during her labor and help her relax down into the sensations she will feel rather than fight them.  Partners will leave this class knowing when to talk, what to say (understanding your mama's love lanugage), how to support, how to touch and bring pain relief both during and between contractions.  This is a Homegrown Babies community offering that is offered at no charge!

Description:
This training prepares one in all the skills necessary to offer a complete and safe full body Thai massage. In three weekends you can get certified as a Thai Yoga Bodywork Practitioner, while learning three hours of relaxing and therapeutic Thai Massage techniques. These can then be combined in various ways to create individualized treatments for your friends, family and/or clients. You can choose to take single days, a weekend or the first two weekends to learn the full two hour 'foundational flow.' Add in the final weekend for therapeutic applications and certification*.    With a strong emphasis on proper body dynamics and how to use leverage, you will learn how to effortlessly apply pressure to sore muscles, energy lines & trigger points as well as learn how to bring your partner through a series of assisted yoga stretches to open, relax and rejuvenate your clients. The Therapeutic weekend will focus on the more creative and advanced Thai Massage techniques. In addition, you will learn how to apply PNF techniques into the stretches to target and release specific muscles with ease. We will look at how to treat various conditions such as sciatic pain, tight hamstrings, and low back pain. We will also learn techniques to easily release the Psoas, the QL and how to bring the hips into balance.     This training has been refined for over a decade to offer all students the ability to master these skills in a short amount of time. After completing the course, all dedicated practitioners should be able to offer a profoundly healing and delightful treatment.   Each day you will learn a new thirty minute routine focusing on a specific body area in a specific position, ultimately resulting in over three hours of techniques. Courses can be taken individually or you can sign up for the full training at a discount. This is a wonderful way to complement the massage or yoga that you are currently offering and provide yourself with a new skill and income stream. You will receive a detailed guidebook with pictures and descriptions to aid in your ongoing practice. A comprehensive DVD is also available to practice at home with.    Previous massage and/or yoga studies are recommended but not required.
