During the retreat, Alex will teach active classes in the morning and a few restorative sessions in the evening.
Everyone is welcome, beginners as well as advanced yoga practitioners. The group will be small with a maximum of 14 participants.
THE THAI MASSAGE CLASSES
During the afternoons, you will learn about the art of touch, giving and receiving a small Thai Massage every day. Thai Massage allows you to bring consciousness into fascia and deeper tissues, which will improve your yoga practice.
Anne will lead you through simple Thai massage sequences. This way you can give and receive a healing massage each day. The Thai massages are received in yoga clothes and no oil is used.
Anne was trained in Chiang Mai, Thailand, by Thai massage masters such as Ajarn Sinchai, Lek Chayia, Pi Jem, and Pijat. She has been giving Thai massages for more than 10 years and teaching it since 2010. She’s also trained as a Yoga and a Shiatsu therapist.
