Thai Yoga Body Work Level 1

Prerequisite – Open to All

Thai Yoga Body Work aka "Lazy Man's Yoga" is for everyone!

The well-being of your family, friends, and community can be permanently uplifted by your choice to share compassionate touch, which is why we have developed MYBO Sensorial Thai Yoga Body Work Technique. Amanda is a Yoga Teacher and Thai Yoga Body Work Practitioner so this technique combines many of the assists and stretches Yoga Teachers can do (thus is a perfect additional training for Yoga Teachers to add to their teaching skill set).

Traditional Thai Yoga Body Work is performed on a mat on the floor through comfortable loose clothing. It is an accessible form of body work, combining meditation, stretches, acupressure/compressions, reflexology and energy movement.  You don’t have to be an expert to produce outstanding results. The MYBO system makes learning easy and this workshop shows you how to tap into your own innate abilities to give a sensational massage. Learn how to deliver complete 60, 75, 90 or 120 minute sessions, focusing on:

Safe and effective body work techniques that anyone can master
Practice principles of body alignment
Integrate Metta (loving kindness) and meditation into your body work
Body Work for shoulders, head, back, hands, legs, abdomen, and feet


Level 2 info:

Steven Brown coleads Thai Massage level 2 and graduated from the Potomac Massage Training Institute in August ’98 and has successfully completed workshops in Shiatsu, Reflexology, the Alexander Technique and Hot Stone Massage treatments and is certified in Thai Massage. He has been leading Thai Massage trainings for many years and is able to provide CEs for NCBTMB for MYBO trainings.  

Tidasavanh was founded by Bebe Khambay (who co leads with Steve in Level 2). He grew up in Vientiane, Laos that borders with Thailand. “Nuad Bo Han” or Thai massage is part of his culture. He was taught by village elders to give Thai massage from the age of 9. He started by stepping on the backs of his family’s elders. He also prepared herbal medicines to help relieve aches and pains from X daily activities. He learned his massage style mostly from a teacher who taught blind people how to do massage in Vientiane, Laos. Bebe came to USA in 200 and moved to Virginia In 2007. He has been working at therapy centers in Northern Virginia since 2009 as a licensed massage practitioner and is a graduate from Northern Virginia Therapeutic Massage School.

Perfect for people without any bodywork experience, this training is also invaluable as continuing education for massage practitioners. The gift of compassionate touch is empowering and available to everyone ready to discover it.
