Elise Foster
Saturday | December 2nd | 14th Street Studio | $40


Thai yoga massage is an ancient healing art that is said to have originated before the time of the Buddha. It is quite different from traditional western massage. It is often described as "the lazy man's yoga" as it feels like
having someone stretch your muscles and gently put your body into yoga poses for you while you are completely relaxed. The massages are done on a mat or soft surface on the floor and are completely clothed.

Connecting breath with movement, much like yoga, givers use their own body weight, gravity, and leverage to stretch or release muscles, making this modality of massage simple and accessible to everyone. It is also said that practicing Thai yoga massage should be like a meditation for the giver, encouraging them to let go of the monkey mind and drop into their own intuition as to what their receiver needs.

In this workshop you will:
● Learn the physical and mental techniques of how to give (and receive!) a Thai yoga massage sequence with ease, comfort, and confidence.
● Build connection and trust in yourself and others. As you soften into the practice, as a giver or a receiver, you will cultivate trust, sensitivity, and metta - loving kindness.
● Take home a thai yoga massage sequence to offer your friends and family.
● Feel restored and surprise yourself with your healing capabilities!
Wear form fitting, comfortable clothing and do not eat anything heavy for a couple hours before.

Wine and dessert provided.

Solo participants welcome. If you come solo you will be paired with another solo person or an assistant.



Inspired by her yoga teaching grandmother, Elise began practicing yoga at a young age. In 2011, Elise "flew" for the first time at Meridian Hill Park and immediately fell in love with AcroYoga and its holistic lineage of yoga, acrobatics and the healing arts. She is a certified
AcroYoga International teacher, Tantra Hatha Vinyasa yoga teacher, Thai yoga therapist and reiki practitioner. Elise aims to bring to others the joy, power and healing energy that yoga, Thai massage, and AcroYoga brought into her life. Outside of her teaching and healing practice, you can catch Elise performing around DC or nationally with Acrolesque.
