Thai yoga massage therapy is an extraordinarily dynamic practice that weaves its way into your life, evolving into a way of living. Its roots in ancient Ayurveda encourage self-reflection and greater self-awareness of your individual constitution. This can have a profound effect on the decisions and patterns you see throughout your life. By moving your body to facilitate wellness in others, you affect yourself in countless positive ways – creating an environment that is not solely about giving, but receiving as well. Thai massage is unique in the world of bodywork because it focuses on working towards ease and efficiency of body mechanics when giving a treatment. This ultimately enhances the experience of both the receiver and the practitioner.

I just wanted to stop in to tell you in person what an incredible difference to my life these Feldenkrais classes have made. I’ve been in pain that was so debilitating. I’ve had to miss up to a month of work. Feldenkrais has really relieved my pain. Now I’m moving again in ways that I haven’t been able to move for decades…since my twenties! I tried EVERYTHING before: hot needles, physical therapy, Pilates, yoga, Rolfing – you name it – and they’ve each contributed something. But nothing has worked like Feldenkrais has worked. Our teacher Eve is amazing. And I’ve benefited from Eva’s Feldenkrais workshops as well.
It seems unbelievable that something that’s almost effortless can make such a difference. I’m so used to pushing hard to get better. Now I’m just rolling around a little on the floor, and I come out of Feldenkrais with my body feeling completely different and better. I’m much more in touch with my body – I’m more intuitive now about how I can move to feel better.
I really can’t thank you enough for having this great place and offering these wonderful classes. I keep telling all my friends about it! And I just had to come by and tell you.
