Thai Massage Workshop — community query

ham-smallI have just secured February 18th for a Toronto Intro to Thai Massage Workshop in Toronto at the beautiful Embrace Yoga & Health at 360 Dufferin (just north of Queen). Plenty more info to come as we head into winter.

What I would like to know from you is what do you think the ideal length of time for a 1-day workshop is? The intent of this training is to introduce participants to the general idea of this ancient modality and to teach a selection of its most effective techniques. We will study techniques with the receiver in sitting position as well as lying face-up (supine) and face-down (prone).

I have taught a 4-hour workshop and a 2-day workshop (on consecutive weekends). This time I was thinking of 12:30-5:30pm for Saturday, February 18th. How does this seem to you in terms of attention span, energy level and feeling you’ve had a satisfying introductory dive into a wonderful new skill to share with your loved ones? The space is only available from noon, but I could take it into a 6 or 7 hour stretch with a break if that feels better.

Or, we could do 12:30-5:30 on two consecutive Saturdays for a deeper training with more time for supervised practice. An advantage of the 2-day option would be that you can return on the second day after having had time to practice and you will be able to bring questions from that experience back to the instructor. What do you think?

I look forward to your feedback! Please comment below or on the Harmony Hands Facebook Page.

Tuesday morning FLOW YOGA with Jen Gillmor is back!


Yogaspace, 148 Ossington Avenue, Toronto

Summer’s been incredible. I hope this was the case for everyone! As we relish the last of its long and warming days, let’s start to recall things we love to do in the fall. I am excited to announce that my weekly Hatha Flow class at Yogaspace has started up again Tuesdays 9:30-10:50am.

I teach a very meditative, thorough, stretchy style of yoga. It’s about stress relief, tuning in to your physical, emotional, energetic and mental states, strengthening your body and finding delicious ways to stretch that FEEL GOOD!

It is for all levels and is not a sweaty class but a warming and grounding one which will sharpen your mind
and revitalize your body.

BONUS: Participants of my yoga class are eligible for a HALF-PRICE massage voucher!

Jennifer Is an awe-inspiring bundle of joy, care, sweetness, knowledge and talent. I cannot recommend her more highly in the capacity as a yoga teacher and massage therapist. ~ Bibi Rahim-Hahn
