Gentle Yoga/Thai Yoga Massage

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 - 5:45pm to 6:30pm

Thai Yoga Massage, sometimes referred to as 'lazy man's yoga,' is a form of massage where one is guided through a variety of passive yoga stretches while the instructor provides gentle hands-on touch along the body's myofascial planes and accupressure points.

This slow-flowing class will relax you and is perfect for the end of a work day. The focus will be on postures that allow for gentle muscle stretching combined with thai yoga massage techniques.
