Thai Massage Class at Flow Space
Ariela Grodner, founder of the Bodhi Sanga Shala School of Thai Massage, will facilitate an all-levels Thai Massage class from 4 to 6 p.m., January 12, at Flow Space. Participants will learn to massage and be massaged in a delicious and accessible way. No previous experience is necessary.
As an ancient healing art that combines the best of acupressure from Thailand and hatha yoga from India, gentle rocking movements, deep rhythmic compressions, a variety of stretching movements and restorative yoga positions open the body’s complex network of tissue and energy lines. Grodner, author of eight books on this subject, has developed more than 300 hours of curriculum and travels internationally sharing her love of this art.
Thai massage relieves muscular tension and pain, improves circulation, boosts the immune system, and balances the body energetically, facilitating mind-body integration. A session of Thai yoga massage results in restoring a healthy, balanced energetic flow to the recipient. It is a complete therapeutic treatment on its own and may also be incorporated into other modalities of massage or yoga classes.
Cost is $15 to 25. Location: 117 NW 16th Ave., Gainesville. For tickets, visit BodhiSangha.com.
