    • Next we explore movement styles and patterns influenced by Feldenkrais and  Alexander technique, as well as Somatic dance floor work to further our body mind connection and unwinding with flow and ease.
    • Finally to finish the class we will stand again, noting the changes we have made, ending with a breathing meditation or a guided fun dance improvisation.

    Massage isn’t only for relaxing. The healing properties of touch have been proven over and over again by scientific studies. Experience it yourself when you come to this workshop where May Kesler, Mth, PT will guide you through giving a rehabilitative massage for a partner (bring a partner or be partnered up), who will then reciprocate and work on you! We will work on neck, back, and shoulder areas, but requests for teaching other areas are welcome too.

    About your teacher: May Kesler is owner of Kesler Physical & Massage Therapy and has a 33-year history in helping people reduce pain and restore function. May has been a dancer for more than 50 years which gives her a unique perspective. “Because of all the work I do as a dancer, it gives me an intuitive sensibility of how the body works and fits together,” she explains. “I look at the body as a whole. All the parts are connected. I look at the patient’s pain or injury and I always relate to their posture, the way they move, the way they hold their head and neck, the way they hold their back, and the way they are seated. I know their issue could be related to organ problems. I conduct a full musculoskeletal evaluation of how their body works.”

    Thai massage is all about doing something that is beneficial and healing for both the person giving and receiving in the session. It teaches us that loving kindness is making sure that we are loving and kind to ourselves first. For when our glass is full we have so much more to give!

    Grab a loved one for this workshop where you can safely learn how to do a few Thai massage techniques that will be healing for both the person receiving as well as the person giving each technique. You will learn how your hands are an extension of your heart through loving touch. You will also learn about the ‘sen’ which are the energy lines that map out the body and how the energy lines guide our Thai massage movements. Additionally, you will learn about the power of intention and the importance of directing our thoughts and energy when we place our hands on another person. This intentional touch fosters deeper connection and healing.

    You will each take turns practicing the different Thai massage techniques on each other. At the conclusion of class there will be a brief discussion of each person’s experience through the workshop with optional champagne, hot tea, and chocolate covered strawberries for you and your loved one to enjoy together.

    Space is limited to 6 pairs in studio.

    This workshop is offered online and in-studio. Please be sure to sign up for the correct format.

    Cost of workshop: $110 per pair
