Mini Workshops for everyone

Thai Massage for everyone – Mini Thai Courses

Update! If you are self isolating please join us online!

We have set up resources for live online attendance. 

Here is a wonderful opportunity for a taster training of this very special dynamic healing art from Thailand.


Come along and learn how to give a relaxing Thai Yoga massage to bring ease to the mind and body, both for the giver and the receiver! We begin with a short yoga and meditation warm up to get us in the mindset for relaxing touch. Then you’ll be ready to learn some techniques, including some Thai Yoga moves, that will benefit your family and friends, or for professionals to include in your massage routines. These half day workshops are fun and accessible, fully clothed, no previous experience necessary, and you don’t need to be super fit, just agile enough to kneel on at floor level. Come with a friend or on your own, relax and enjoy!
