Developed in Thailand, Thai Partner Yoga Therapy (TPYT) is influenced by the traditional healing systems of China, India and Southwest Asia. TPYT is a 2-hour session where the practitioner uses his or her own hands, feet, arms and legs to gently guide the recipient through a series of yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy pathways and pressure points. TPYT is performed on a floor mat where both client and practitioner are dressed in comfortable clothing to allow ease of movement and flexibility.
Thai Partner Yoga Therapy is ideal for many conditions and suitable for people of all ages and any level of activity and flexibility - gentle enough for the elderly yet still highly effective for the sports enthusiast.
