Partner Thai Massage Workshop @ In Fine Feather Yoga
Oct

7:00 PM19:00

Partner Thai Massage Workshop @ In Fine Feather Yoga

Thai massage is a great way to connect to your partner, friend, or family member and anyone can learn this healing therapy. Traditional Thai massage works primarily with the energetic body using manual manipulation combined with acupressure, gentle stretching and muscular kneading. By stimulating the bodies lines of energy or Prana (life force), we can help break up blockages in tissues or organs to stimulate free flow of Prana and help to restore general wellbeing.

During this workshop, your guide Lilli Markle, will demonstrate how to safely give basic thai massage techniques from a meditative place of loving kindness. This fun practice will leave you in a state of blissful flow, connection and warmth. We invite you to stay and enjoy food and drink pairings after your massage.

Thai massage is practiced on a soft surface on the floor. Each person is required to bring a blanket.

All levels, beginner friendly.

Date: Friday October 18th
Time: 7:00pm- 9:00pm
Cost: $50.00+HST per person

Refresh Your Soul Retreat

Do you:

  • Have a busy lifestyle and lots of interests pulling you in many directions?

  • Have a spiritual practice or curiosity to connect to the source?

  • Enjoy nature and living sustainably?

  • Seek creative outlets for your energy?

  • Want to practice spending time in reflection and self-awareness?

  • Feel the need to restore the body and mind?

As your host, I invite you to come home to what is essential for the body, mind and spirit; learn new skills, discover and be guided into moments of self-reflection;  deepen your connection to nature and the elements with a balance of guided and free-time activities.

Refresh Your Soul Retreat (3).png

Going on retreat affords us a unique opportunity to set aside all of our worldly problems and concerns, and instead focus on our spiritual development, spending enough time to truly absorb what is required for the nervous system to function in our daily life.

You will be guided through four open-level yoga classes, including hatha/vinyasa and yin/restorative practices that will involve pranayama and meditation to support the energetic shifts you’re bound to experience in this refreshing retreat. Enjoy two longer workshop-style classes in yoga nidra and thai massage, where you can learn new tools and techniques for inviting more ease and awareness to yours and your loved ones’ daily lives.

Join the group for a healing soundbath and fire ceremony activities in the evenings, while balancing out your free time lounging around the gorgeous property, playing at the nearby beach, hiking through the surrounding forest or receiving relaxing and deep healing bodywork.

Restorative Yoga + Thai Massage Workshop

Restore + thai workshop vol 2.png

End the month in absolute bliss.

We’ll tune into our nervous system, allowing mental, physical and emotional release to begin. Supported by props - bolsters, straps, blocks, blankets - you’ll settle into deep relaxation. We’ll hold poses longer than in a traditional flow class, but you’ll feel no strain or effort.

As you settle into your practice, our Thai massage practitioner will provide a gentle stretch of your arms and legs. Thai massage, also known as “lazy person’s yoga”, gives your body room to release and breathe. Some benefits of Thai Massage include muscular release and an increase of blood circulation in the body.

We’ll finish with a rewarding savasana and an optional head massage.

Accessible to all bodies. Comfortable, layered attire is recommended. Just bring your own body. We’ll provide the rest.

Cost is $25 for drop in or $5 top up for members and passes.

Calling all stretchy pants lovers! Join me for an afternoon of giving back and maybe even take home a fresh tank for your yoga wardrobe.

Time: 2:00pm- 4:00pm
Location: 219 Ottawa Street North
Cost: Suggested Donation $5.00
All proceeds going towards the Jump In Foundation.

We all have those tanks, T's and yoga pants we just aren't wearing anymore. So let's trade them in for something that feels like new- athletic wear only please! Bring in a bag or a few pieces of your gently used, clean athletic wear and see if you can find some 'new' gems to take home yourself! We will be opening up the studio for an afternoon of swapping yoga clothes. In the spirit of community, we are asking for a donation of $5.00 for the event.

All of the proceeds will be going towards a local charity, the Jump In Foundation.

Sharing is caring, we want everyone in the community to have access to comfortable, quality athletic wear so we can all enjoy movement in something that feels good and allows us to sweat confidently. Let us know you are coming by RSVPing to the Facebook event or email info@infinfeatheryoga.com
