Thai Yoga for a better you!

Thai Yoga is more than 2500 years old. This ancient therapeutic style of Yoga historically originated from India, under the guidance of Jivaka Kumara Bacha, with the blessings of  Buddha. As Buddha’s teaching spread to Thailand, this healing technique was practised by the monks. To date, the healing art is preserved and flourishing in Thailand. Thai Yoga also derives from the Ayurvedic healing tradition. It is thus often called Thai Yoga Massage.

Thai Yoga Massage involves practices and a series of assisted asanas through which the circulation and flexibility of the body are greatly improved. The muscles are loosened and relaxed. Thai Yoga relieves stress from mind and muscles. Thai Yoga unblocks energy flow channels by realigning and correcting the Sen Lines in the body. Harmony of the body is restored and the body is thus re-energized. Here are 5 points in a Thai Yoga Bodywork.

Thai Yoga can improve your posture by boosting your awareness about your body. With each asana, focus of the mind and body are drawn on the various muscle groups and their function and movement. This creates better body-mind coordination. The enhanced sense of perception improves the body posture significantly. Thai Yoga also helps in correcting the improper alignment of hands, wrists, arms and shoulders. Each Yoga Asana requires optimal positioning of the body parts. With practice, the habit of ideal alignment is etched into the memory of the practitioner and they are able to hold poses correctly and for longer amounts of time. Over time, this becomes a habit and good postures are naturally inculcated. 

Thai Yoga builds the core strength of the body by increasing the body’s core stability and core muscle function. Since these muscle groups are directly involved in controlling the lumbar spine, posture correction is achieved.

Thai Yoga strengthens the upper body and trunk. These regions are fundamental for dictating body balance, stability and strength. Good posture is dependent on upper body and trunk strength.  

Thai Yoga also promotes greater flexibility. Flexibility is key in posture control because it aids in balance and motion range. Flexibility also reduces muscle stiffness and tension. 

With time, practice and the right technique, achieving a good posture is certainly possible.
