Free Guide to What is Thai Yoga? 101
Welcome to your first course on SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy!
The content of this free course is also included with the Master Thai Yoga Omnibus All Course Access:
What is Thai Yoga 101 lays the foundation for understanding this amazing indigenous, traditional medicine system and exactly how it can benefit us today. The roots of Thai Yoga are found in the Ayurveda of Thailand... Thai Traditional Medicine (TTM- Ayurveda of Thailand). Thai Traditional Medicine is almost entirely based on Classical Indian Medicine or Ayurveda and, to a lesser extent, the influences of Theravada Buddhism/ Buddhist Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and the contributions of Native and Tribal peoples: Karen, Akha, Lisu, Mien, Lahu, Hmong, and others.
Over the next Six (6) Free Lessons, What is Thai Yoga Course 101 will give you the specifics of the history, geography, philosophy, and most fundamental practice concepts. These practice ideas and philosophies are adaptable and beneficial to be used as a stand-alone, comprehensive therapy system for most illnesses and disabilities. The indigenous traditional medicine of Thailand is just that, Primary Medicine Care for millions of people for the past thousand years... so we know the practices work as advertised! Additionally, many therapist, healers, physicians, Chiropractors, Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture Doctors, Naturopath, and Massage Therapist have found that integrating Traditional Thai Yoga Therapies and protocols have brought new life and healing possibilities to their existing practices.
