This innovative and comprehensive cross-cultural certification program is designed to expand your personal understanding of health through the exploration and integration of ancient wisdom traditions and modern sustainability practices, both of which, will naturally invite you to develop a deeper relationship with your self, your community, and your environment. Guided and empowered by your unfolding inner wisdom, you will begin to embody your evolving perspective of health, and learn to safely and confidently offer professional therapeutic treatments in a manner that reflects the sacred origins of Thai Yoga Massage, and elevates the energetic exchange to an artistic expression of compassion, patience and awareness.
As globetrotters and spiritual seekers ourselves, we recognize the powerful link between travel (expanding one’s global perspective) and personal/ professional development (opening one’s heart and mind). That is why we chose to blend the potent essence of an expedition into wild, unfamiliar territory with a fresh, multi-dimensional Thai Yoga Massage curriculum. The success of our program can be traced back to an emphasis on direct experience, interwoven with periods of facilitated reflection, both of which unfold in some of the most unique, dynamic and beautiful natural classrooms in the world. Our students don’t just read about Thai culture, Buddhist philosophy or the art of Thai Yoga Massage. They are immersed in it, encouraged to experiment with it, and challenged to question if and how it can make a positive difference in their lives and the lives of their future clients. The opportunity to personally explore ancient wisdom traditions and modern sustainability practices allows our students to develop a deeper relationship with themselves, their community and their environment, which means that our curriculum does more than just train people to perform Thai Yoga Massage techniques. It empowers them to embrace and embody their unfolding inner wisdom, both on and off the Thai Yoga Massage mat.
The people who seek out and commit to this challenging immersion are ready and willing to change their lives. They have bravely left their homes, families, friends, identities and other attachments behind and opened themselves up to experiencing a new climate, a new diet, a new language, a new career, a new life-style and many new possibilities. They are ready to question their oldest conditioned beliefs and assumptions and expand their perspective on the true source of health and happiness. Our students are inspiring!
Our graduates literally shine as a result of their willingness to endure intense study and self-reflection for the purpose of self-transformation. On the inside, they are wiser and more discerning. They have confronted old habits and patterns, which their new environment and practices have helped to expose. They have adopted a new mind-set that better supports their evolving life and career goals. They have become more open emotionally, more focused mentally, and more connected to their creative and intuitive gifts. They have embraced change fearlessly and engaged fully in their own creative healing process. They have also developed a respect for human suffering and a great capacity for offering compassion. As a community, they have forged tight friendships and become a modern extended family, depending on each other, nurturing each other, confiding in each other, learning from each other, and holding each other accountable through a variety of breakdowns and breakthroughs. Our graduates are rare souls who have the passion, intelligence and creativity necessary to become leaders in the massage therapy field and in their communities at large.
