Thai yoga therapy is a unique system that combines the ancient healing art of massage with the deep meditative stretches found in yoga practice. The therapy is designed to release tension while stimulating vitality in both the giver and the receiver. With the hands-on experience of rhythmic massage and acupressure while performing various yoga twists and poses, the goal is to achieve a state of wholeness of mind, body and spirit.
Thai yoga therapy, also known as nuad boran or nuat Thai, is a traditional therapeutic Thai massage technique that is thousands of years old. Though the exact origins are not really known, practitioners trace their roots to Buddha’s personal physician who was a renowned healer. In the ancient tradition of Thai medicine, the primary goal was maintaining health and well-being using a natural, holistic approach. At the heart of this approach was the use of massage therapy.
Thai medicine is based on energy flow that exists through the body along 10 major channels. Illness is believed to be a result of a blockage of these channels. Thai yoga therapy training teaches the theory of the lines and how to massage these energy channels, or meridians. Other theories explored when learning this form of therapy are the principles of energetic healing as well as the practice of meditation.

The core of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra is an eight-limbed path that forms the structural framework for yoga practice. Upon practicing all eight limbs of the path it becomes self-evident that no one element is elevated over another in a hierarchical order. Each is part of a holistic focus which eventually brings completeness to the individual as they find their connectivity to the divine. Because we are all uniquely individual a person can emphasize one branch and then move on to another as they round out their understanding.
This ideology encourages one to continue in the spiritual/religious path that they have chosen or were born into, while applying these principles.
In brief the eight limbs, or steps to yoga, are as follows:
1. Yama : Universal morality
2. Niyama : Personal observances
3. Asanas : Body postures
4. Pranayama : Breathing exercises, and control of prana
5. Pratyahara : Control of the senses
6. Dharana : Concentration and cultivating inner perceptual awareness
7. Dhyana : Devotion, Meditation on the Divine
8. Samadhi : Union with the Divine
Have you ever wondered about the 8 limbs of yoga? Hatha yoga (physical practice) is just one. Devotional Chanting and singing is another; a practice called Kirtan.
