Hatha Yoga and Traditional Thai Yoga Massage

The purpose and the basis of both yoga and Thai massage are closely related and they both are a part of a larger Eastern philosophy of wellbeing. They both recognize the importance of stretching, mobilising joints, realigning. They both appreciate the holistic approach whereby the practice is comprehensive (head to toe) and suited to one’s needs. They both seek to rebalance the energy through bodywork and relaxation. They do have a lot in common and they complement each other. It is also very reassuring to see how they both fit into a large agenda of wellbeing and Metta Bhavana (loving-kindness).

Flow

Through my own practice I seek to create a flow: slow enough to notice how things happen, to enjoy the degree of control I have (flow, not float), and fast enough to keep things moving, without getting stuck, without dwelling on things, enjoying fluidity and vigour. I open my chest and hips noticing my vulnerability. I accommodate. I give and I take. I flow growing in strength and patience. I may tumble or trip, I may hit a brick wall. That's just a part of the larger flow. Flow with humility.

Your Inner Light

As you look inwards, initially you may find doubts, concerns, uncertainty that are even more acute than on the surface. If you persevere (practicing meditation, pranayama, mindfulness, flow), you may begin to catch glimpses of your inner light - the very point of reference that is not affected by any external circumstances, unchanging and completely non-judgmental. The things before your eyes and in your head will still be the same, but your perspective will begin to change. Feel reassured by this warmth and light that you find within as it will light your path.
