I am excited to announce that myself and Chris Jackson are collaborating to create and teach this new Advanced Diploma of 8 days duration at the Yoga Therapies studio in Newcastle. This new FHT accredited Diploma is split into 2 modules.
Part 1: covers Body Assesment and Correction and then develops into Dynamic Thai massage for the lower body. The dates for part 1 are Sept 25th / 28th
Part 2: covers Abdominal massage and Dynamic Thai massage for the Upper body on Nov 27th / 30th. Although people are welcome to join only one of the two modules the accredited qualification can only be awarded to those who complete both parts 1 and 2.
The Advanced Therapeutic Diploma is a fusion of Osteopathy and Dynamic Thai Yoga Massage, acting as a bridge between the Old and New, between the East and West, where the best parts of 2 great Holistic systems are brought together to create something very unique and possibly even more effective. In this course the meditative, intuitive and feeling based approach of traditional Thai Yoga massage is merged with the more precise anatomical approach of Osteopathic practice. The goal here is to produce the best framework possible at this moment in time to guide self-motivated therapists to their highest capacity as conscious, compassionate and skillful body workers

Yoga Practice & Anatomy module: We start the day with Yoga Practice and Anatomy, which is a 2hr Yoga class focussing on the specific areas of the body to be worked throughout the day. This module will highlight the key muscle groups involved within a particular Asana, what their function is and inter-relationship to other muscle groups. The approach here will be to help each student come to a greater understanding of their body through a direct and guided experience in Yoga Asana, with an intention to enable them to transfer this knowledge into their own yoga, massage and teaching practices.
Dynamic Thai Yoga Massage: This part of the programme combines the art of Thai Yoga Massage with Dynamic Osteopathic techniques. The physical goal of this approach is to improve joint mobility, restore vitality and correcting imbalances in the bodies muscular/skeletal systems and myo-fascial trains. This module will build on the morning Yoga anatomy class to expand with specific focus on Dynamic Rhythmic techniques, Soft tissue release, Yoga Stretching, Reciprocal tension and Dynamic Compression massage.
