Program

Also known as Nuad Boran, this form of bodywork combines Ayurveda, assisted yoga postures, energy line work, acupressure, and muscle compression, to create a moving meditation for both giver and receiver. Discover your innate ability to offer compassionate touch, walk away with a sequence of poses to practice, and accompanying manual.

For beginners, this is a beautiful introduction to the practice of Thai Massage, and chance to unwind and retreat. For those with previous experience, an excellent opportunity to practice and refine your skills.

"Every wise culture knows that there are important times to walk out into the dessert or mountains, or go on retreat to listen" - Jack Kornfield

What people are saying

"My overall experience was life altering. Not just learning thai massage, but experiencing the island, the venue, the residents and my co-students. It was beautiful, calm, relaxing, rejuvenating, and inspiring, I couldn't imagine a better place to spend time and learn. I felt as though we gained a wealth of knowledge, and I am confident to practice a full body thai massage when I go home. Tara was amazing, with kindness, Spirit, and a calm that all enhanced my experience." ~ M. Harbourne, Airdire, AB
