Walden Welcomes Alex “Ata” Baechler, October 21 & 22, 2013.

The sacred art of Thai Massage is as ancient as the times of the Buddha. Thai massage has been practiced by monks and has always been seen as a sacred discipline. Through the awareness of touch we connect deeper to the present moment giving cues to the soul for healing purposes. Throughout the duration of the workshop Ata will give a strong emphasis on the feeling of touch, the breath and the quality of “metta” which means loving kindness. We will explore some concepts of traditional osteopathy in the Thai Massage sequence and demonstrate special therapeutic techniques. Whether you have never done any Thai Massage, or if you are an experienced practitioner, this course is open to all levels.

Ata, now a renowned teacher, has devoted much of his life to the study of traditional Thai massage, yoga and meditation amongst the greatest Thai masters and yogis such as Pichest Boonthumme and Sri Dharma Mittra. In his teaching today, Ata blends his skills as a yogi and brings the ancient sacred art of thai massage to another level. “The well-being that I gained when I first discovered Thai massage paved the way for my entire future development as a therapist. Thai Massage is like a meditation in movement, a transcendental dance that has the power to heal the subtle body.”
