The Art of Thai Massage
Sunday, July 30th // 12-4pm
Violet Owl Wellness
62 Wall St, Downtown Asheville, North Carolina
Thai Yoga Massage is a 2,500-year-old form of bodywork therapy that integrates elements of yoga, massage, Ayurveda, and martial arts into a beautiful dance between giver and receiver. In this 4-hour immersion, we will explore the foundations of Thai Yoga Massage through the art of play and movement, learning simple and effective massage techniques and assisted yogic stretches that will enrich our understanding of this ancient healing practice. In this exploration, we will deepen our knowledge of human anatomy, cultivate mindfulness and compassion, and rediscover the power of touch as a tool for growth and transformation.
Open to all levels of experience.
Facilitators: Nina Lombardo and Dominique Warfield
Nina’s work is inspired by her fascination with human form and movement, and she aims to facilitate learning environments that foster interpersonal connections and deepen somatic awareness. As a massage therapist specializing in Thai Yoga Massage and as a devoted dancer, musician, and bodywork educator, her passion lies in exploring the interface between the expressive and healing arts and in discovering the infinite ways we are able to connect and relate to one another and our environment through movement and touch.
