Thai Yoga Therapy includes a pattern of slow hand movement called "elephant walking." It is a very rhythmic, and deeply relaxing technique. These gentle creatures are powerful and purposeful, teaching us how to be truly mindful.
WHAT IS THAI YOGA THERAPY?

More about Thai Yoga Therapy
Thai Yoga Therapy is performed with loose and comfortable clothing on a special comfortable mat.
Sessions generally last 1.5-2 hours addressing the whole body with special attention to your needs. A technique called Chi Nei Tsang may be added or the focus of your session, a specialized abdominal treatment to help with balancing your overall health, and release deep tension.
It is recommended that the shortest time allowed is 1.5 hours (90 minutes), but it is understandable if you only have an hour.
No yoga experience is necessary. All persons of any age, including children and older adults, any stage of life, and ability can benefit.
