Table Thai Yoga Massage can considerably expand your clientele base, while giving you the tools to take even better care of your
body and promote a sustainable massage career. This course brings the incredible benefits of Thai Yoga Massage – including
yoga-like stretching, profound relaxation, and energy work – to the comforts of a massage table. Performed on a traditional
massage table with the recipient fully clothed, this practice attracts a broad cross-section of clients including athletes, elderly,
and those who simply prefer to be massaged on a table. Therapists used to traditional table massage will reduce injuries to
hands and wrists by learning to use elbows, forearms, feet and other parts of their body. Those used to Thai on a mat will
augment their practice with a new, flexible form.
This course builds on the foundations learned in Table Thai Level 1 and expands students’ repertoire to two hours worth of
massage techniques. During this course, students will:
• Learn a new 60-minute flow while reviewing all postures and techniques taught in Table Thai 1;
• Incorporate sen lines (energy pathways) and Indian pressure points into the massage;
• Understand how to customize to accommodate people of different sizes, flexibilities, and limitations.
What to Bring
• Bolsters and pillows
• Thai reflexology sticks (available for purchase from instructor)
• Snacks, lunch (these will not be provided)
About the Instructor
Shai first discovered Thai Massage in 1999 while traveling in Thailand. Upon returning to his native Quebec, Shai was delighted
to find that Kam Thye Chow, one of the original North American teachers, lived less than two blocks from his home in Montreal.
From that point on, Shai worked hand-in-hand with Kam Thye, learning the practice, teaching, acting as manager of Lotus Palm,
and eventually developing curriculum and helping to write many of the books currently in use, including the Teacher Training
program and advanced training courses.
Shai is blessed to have taught on four different continents and at some of the largest yoga centers in the world, including as a
regular at the Kripalu Center and Omega Institute. Currently he is the co-Founder of Toronto’s Still Light Centre, which teaches
one of the most comprehensive Thai Yoga Massage programs in North America.
