Dru Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage
Saturday 18 April 2015
1 – 5pm, Victor’s Lab Peckham
An afternoon of serenity and peace with Dru Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage.
“Blissful, relaxing and fun. I spent the rest of the weekend in a happy bubble!” (Georgina)
If you’ve ever had that feeling that all the bits and pieces of life are overwhelming you, that you are carrying too much stress on your shoulders, or perhaps you are just plain exhausted, then this is for you. Because we know exactly how that feels, we’ve put together an afternoon that will take you to a lovely, blissful place and at the same time teach you how to stay calm at home.
First get your muscles and joints limbered up with some invigorating but gentle Dru Yoga, before working with a partner to receive (and learn!) a glorious introduction to Thai Yoga Massage.
“Wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon to relieve stress. Beautifully timed.” (Fiona Bell)
What is Thai Yoga Massage?
Thai Yoga Massage is a clever combination of targeted acupressure and applied Hatha Yoga stretches. It is administered fully clothed and in this workshop you will receive, and learn how to give, a simple massage to a friend or partner.
Dotty Lawrence is a “magnificent” Thai Yoga Massage practitioner, and a professional actor. She will lead you step-by-step through a short introductory massage sequence so that you can reap the benefits on the day, and also learn how to share this glorious practice with your friends and loved ones.
“Just lovely and what I needed – a relaxing meditative two hours with a nice surprise treat at the end!” (Jennifer Ferguson)
What is Dru Yoga?
Dru Yoga is a beautiful slow and flowing form of yoga that will help you to relax, unwind and stretch out your body. It can help revive tired muscles, reduce back pain and combat stress. Dru Yoga gives the mind and body much needed rest and relaxation, to help you find a still point in a busy world.?
Lucy Bannister is “a fun, easy going and encouraging yoga teacher” who adores the slow and therapeutic practice of Dru Yoga. She will guide you through some of her best loved sequences, to help you forget about everything else. This will be a chance to just be.
“Well thought through and planned, friendly and inspiring” (Janet)
What to expect
The first part of the afternoon will be active Dru Yoga sequences, working to relax and release tension from the body and to help you feel comfortable and at ease.
Then you will split into pairs (you are welcome to come with a friend or partner, but we will find you a partner to work with if not) to receive a simple introductory Thai Yoga Massage sequence. We will go through this twice so you both get the chance to give and receive the massage.
We’ll have plenty of time to have tea and Stu will make some of his famous home-made Chai Tea to keep you warm and comforted.
“Urban retreat, brilliant space, yoga with a sense of humour and fun” (Hanna Shearring)
