Join us at the shop for an "Intro to Thai Yoga Massage" class hosted by Jacob Corley and and Izzy Klein from Optimal Function and Wellness.

In the first hour, you will learn the foundations of Thai Yoga Massage, an ancient form of therapeutic bodywork that integrates elements of massage, yoga, Ayurveda, and martial arts into a beautiful dance between giver and receiver. We will cover all the basics of Thai Massage, including assisted stretches, body mechanics, philosophy, and theory. By the end of the workshop you will come away with techniques that you can use on friends and family to relieve common pain areas in the shoulders, hips, and neck.

In the second hour of this workshop you will learn the foundations of Kinstretch. Kinstretch is defined as a movement enhancement system that develops maximum body control, flexibility and USABLE ranges of motion. We will be covering the basics of mobility training and how to improve your joint health. By the end of this workshop you will understand the difference between mobility and flexibility and go home with exercises that are proven to improve joint health, improve active range of motion and reduce your risk of common injuries.
