Thai Yoga Massage | Yoga NOW Show

Receiving Thai Yoga massage is like being on a chocolate cake diet! There it is, 3 of my favorite things in one sentence. To be clear, Thai massage has a “giver” of the massage and a recipient. I’m speaking from the point of view of the recipient. Our guest, Amanda Young has a simple description of Thai massage; she calls it, “Lazy-man’s Yoga”.

This month, our host Jane Lanza and Amanda go well beyond that simple description. In fact, Amanda spends about 10 minutes during the show giving a demonstration and instruction for a massage treatment that can be practiced at home.
