Amrit Body Psychology/Thai Yoga Bodywork
As the saying goes, the issues are in the tissues…
Drawing from a multidisciplinary background of yoga, massage, energy work, and osteopathic techniques, Amrit Body Psychology/Thai Yoga Bodywork presents the opportunity to address what is not working for you on multiple levels: from the gross to the subtle, from the physical to the emotional. Amrit Body Psychology is a hands-on treatment that uses yoga postures that facilitate release of frozen prana (life energy) on multiple levels of your being: physical, mental, energetic, and emotional. Inside this framework, the work provides a portal for energy to move, as well as a safe space for the exploration of the emotional backlog that can sometimes be released with bodywork. Your willingness to Witness can release years of unconscious fears and restrictions, giving you not only a sense of freedom in the body, but also in your relationships with others and with yourself. This ‘all’ encompassing work is postural, using props and hands-on guidance to access a deeper stretch and corrective alignment.
Thai Yoga Bodywork is the ancient art of applied postures with specific press points along energetic meridians to facilitate movement and ease in the body. Musculoskeletal bodywork is also incorporated to help the body let go of tension and discomfort. It is deeply releasing and relaxing requiring the client only to be receptive.
Both Amrit Body Psychology and Thai Yoga Bodywork are practiced on the floor, and fully clothed. A session can be tailored to either ABP or TYB, depending on the client’s needs- whether that is simply a desire to relax the body or a readiness to explore what may be ready to shift from the hidden and brought into the light of awareness. Each session is tailored to address what is being held specific to you, and has a built-in capacity to draw you in, as deeply as you feel ready to, to explore the emotional content held in the packaging of physical restraints in the tissue.
1-hour session $70; 75 minutes $85; 90 minutes $95
