“Our body mind container must be strong and stable.
Then, we can fill it with energy from our practice and carry that energy everywhere we go as a heightened state of aliveness.”
The Thai Massage Practitioner Certification Program
Thai Yoga students will learn the primary techniques of Nuad Boran, which has its roots in Buddhism, Tantric Yoga, Hatha Yoga and Ayurveda practices that migrated to Thailand as Buddhist culture spread along the trade routes of Southeast Asia. Nuad Boran helps develop hand and body dexterity, while cultivating sensitivity to be present and responsive to in-the-moment-changes that happen in a student’s and client’s body during a yoga practice or Thai session.

Statement of Faith
If we are somehow endowed with participation of some kind of divinity, then we are indeed special, and should treat each other with the respect and dignity this demands.
If, on the other hand, we are the accidental outcome of blind natural processes in a cosmos that is indifferent to us being here at all, then we are indeed special, and should treat each other with a tenderness and respect befitting such serendipitous surprises.
