Foundations of Thai massage - 12 days - 72hrs

The Foundation course concentrates on learning Classical Thai massage postures and modifications where necessary to make them adaptable to all body types.


The course teaches students to use their hands, elbows, knees and feet to give Thai Yoga massage. They also learn basic anatomy, the medical model of 10 Sen lines and develop a personal Yoga & Meditation practice.


Level 1 & 2 - Provides the solid foundations that enable students to practice as a professional and allow them to enter further advanced levels 3, 4 & 5 later.

The 10 day Foundation course focuses on posture, proper body positioning and how we apply the 5 Yoga massage principles.
