Thai Massage Thai massage is an ancient modality with its roots in Northern India, Buddhism and Ayurveda. It is referred to as the “the lazy person’s yoga”, which was created to prepare the body for meditation. The students will learn a 90 minute meditative flow that combines assisted stretching, acupressure, and compression to improve flexibility and balance the body’s energy by dissolving blockages and alleviating stress. Thai Massage can support the students into their current practice, is adaptable to the table, and employs body mechanics that will support the longevity and endurance of their practice.

Graciela has been practicing Thai massage for just over 10 years. Graciela studied in Laos, Costa Rica, Mexico and New Mexico with teachers in the lineage of Asokananda whose teachings trace back to Jivaka Khumar Baccha, revered as the father of medicine in Thailand and was said to be the doctor of the Buddha. Graciela is also a cultural worker and facilitates a ethics of diversity and anti-oppression in bodywork classes on the topics of facing our prejudices to become more present and mindful practitioners addressing the needs of a diverse array of clients including those of the trans, Black, Indigenous and POC communities, people with bodies of size anand people with disabilities.
Graciela is grateful to be providing a space for folks to receive deep healing and has a long-term dream of co-creating a healing center to support people traditionally left out of healing spaces due to a blend of racial & socio-economic factors.
“ My intention in each class is that the teachings ripple out and benefits all beings everywhere without one exception.”
