Thai Yoga Therapy

The healing art of Thai Yoga Therapy is an ancient and sacred system of healing with roots in yoga, Ayurvedic medicine and Buddhist spiritual practice. It is a unique and powerful system, which combines rhythmic massage, acupressure, yogic stretching exercises, gentle twisting, energy work, and meditation. Thai Yoga Therapy stimulates and balances the flow of healing energy within the body, opening the areas which are blocked, bringing the person deeper into balance and harmony for greater health, happiness, and wellness of being.

About This Style of Thai Yoga Bodywork

This school of Thai Yoga Bodywork was founded in 1998 by Saul David Raye. The emphasis is on understanding the fundamentals of Thai Therapy according to yogic principles and practices, and in developing an intuitive and authentic healing practice unique to each person in which healing and transformation arise naturally. Saul lived and studied with his primary teacher, Asokanada (Harald Brust), a true master of this art who has influenced many students throughout the world. Saul’s teachings are heart centered and intuitive, which resonates with many people. For over 15 years, Saul has practiced, taught, and shared this practice with hundreds of people. He has now passed the work on to his senior students who continue to share the work in their own authentic style. Combining their own unique approach with the traditional, they are wonderful healers and educators in their own right.
