Courses in Thai Yoga Massage
Basic level, sufficient to give 1.5 - 2 hour treatment of
Thai Yoga Massage NUAD BORARN (Northern Style).
The course will take usually 10 to 12 days and 7 hours
each. The student learns basic Thai Massage techniques in
four receivers body positions: supine (on the back), on
side, prone (on stomach) and sitting. Main energy lines
and pressure points are introduced as well as stretching
and joint activating techniques. During the course
students learn how to use their own body mechanics
properly, keep the rhythm, "feel" the pressure points and
how to relax, so the work will be effective, pleasant and
safe for the receiver and the giver equally.
The right mental attitude of the practitioner, indications
and contraindications for giving a treatment and other
important points are being discussed.
The course program is based on the syllabus course
level I and II at the Institute of Thai Massage (ITM) and
the Old Medicine Hospital in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand.
This teaching is adapted and enhanced by Alexander's
unique approach and meditations.
The material of this level is sufficient to give a satisfying
Thai Massage session but in reality it takes time to
master techniques, therefore additional workshops or
supervision meetings are very recommended.

might need more specific or advanced techniques
