DETAILS for Advanced Sen Therapy Workshop
May 18, 19, 20, 2012
Friday, Saturday, Sunday, 10am-5:30pm
Pier 4 Hotel, Somers Point, NJ
An incredible class for the serious student seeking to understand the ‘whys’ of thai massage and take their practice to a higher level.
Includes an easy-to-understand overview of all the Sen lines the first day, and then two-days learning a new routine.
Total of THREE days, come for just the first day, the last two days if you've already taken the Sen overview, or all three days.
Instructor and Class FormatRose Griscom follows the ITM and Old Medicine Hospital protocol, has been teaching Thai massage for over 17 years, and specializes in sharing this work with a wide-range of students. She originally studied with Arthur Lambert at ITM-USA in Florida, and then with Chongkol Setthakorn at ITM in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Rose spent 3 years assisting Arthur, and then took over ITM-USA when Arthur moved to Thailand. She trains therapists at top spas around the country, leads workshops in the NJ/PA area, and has a private practice in southern NJ. Her personal practice includes vipassana meditation and chi kung.
Class begins with the traditional Om Namo chant, ringing of the bells, and warm-up movements. Teaching is devoted to clear, thorough demonstrations, with the students being led through the techniques with the instructor's direct supervision. Lots of multi-discipline teaching and hands-on aids. Each class includes a textbook. Videos are available for sale.
For the hands-on classes on Saturday & Sunday, be prepared to work and be worked on. Dress in loose comfortable clothing and have clean feet. Try not to arrive hurried and harried, but allow enough time to slip into the timed timelessness that this work involves. Eat lightly before class, as many of the movements compress the abdomen. Try to be well-rested and alert and receptive.
Classes are approved for continuing education credits by the NCBTMB (#152830) and THAI (#1064).
Come join us for a great few days!
