I know I've plugged this a couple of times, and here I go again!

Anyone interested in learning the Lotus Palm system, here is a CEU course for you:

I'm getting really excited about this class! The only thing I'm nervous about is that I didn't buy the Lotus Palm mat system. I bought an enormous Thai mat that supposedly rolls up (like fighting an alligator to roll it up). And, I have NO IDEA how I'm going to carry the darn thing to class! LOL

If someone who is familiar with Thai massage could provide a description of the differences between the Northern and Southern styles of Thai massage, I would be appreciative.

Thanks in advance. :)

Hi Pueppi, there isn't much difference. The Thai government has for years been trying to standardise the curriculum of Thai massage taught in private and vocational schools in Thailand. Generally when people talk about a difference between the two styles, it is that the north style has more Indian influence with more stretching and manipulation while the southern style has greater Chinese influence, with focus on acupressure points and sen lines. Sometimes north/south differences are confused with the differences between the 'royal' and 'rural' styles (broadly, the royal style enforces more distance between therapist and client, and permits pressure only through fingers - i.e. no palms, knees, feet etc)

Re: Thai yoga Massage - Robert Gardner?

Does anyone have any experience taking classes with Robert Gardner or his 3-hr Reboot treatments? I'm intrigued, and I've taken a bunch of Thai before. It seems more like physical therapy and, this is what makes me gravitate towards it. I want to do something sustainable, but also something that is interesting and treatment-oriented.
