Events & Workshops

Location: spacious and beautiful converted barn in Springhead house, Barns Close, Barrow Gurney, Bristol, BS48 3RL 

3rd and 4th December 2016 10:00am- 4:30pm 


2 days of full immersion into learning easy yet effective Thai massage techniques. This will be combined with learning powerful self massage techniques to help release tension from various parts of the body and we will also do fun and engaging Partner Yoga to stretch and open the body in pairs. 

AFTER the weekend you will be able to share with your friends relaxing and very effective Thai massage techniques on their neck, shoulders, back, hips and legs that are the most common areas of tension. 

You will also leave empowered knowing your body so much better through learning self massage techniques using tennis/lacrosse ball that I'll provide on all major trigger points of your body. You will learn specific points and know what to do if in emergency of tension/ache in your muscles knowing exactly how to release it using a ball, a wall/floor and your body weight. Also what a gift to pay it forward & share it with others who could benefit from this simple yet very effective method. 

We'll be having lots of fun opening our bodies with the simple Partner Yoga moves. No yoga experience required! Those exercises are very easy and done in pairs with emphasis on stretching, breathing, opening and connecting with one another in a relaxed and fun way:-) 

Thai Massage is wonderful for increasing flexibility and mobility in the body combined with Partner Yoga and deep Trigger Point Release techniques you will leave feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and much more flexible and open. Thai Massage is done through clothes so no oils needed. 

After last year successful 1 day Thai Massage workshop in Sept'15  I've been asked to organise a whole weekend one as participants expressed a desire to go deeper into Thai massage techniques. So here it is: ) 

I've been offering massage therapies professionally for over 7 years now and teaching massage workshop for last few years in UK and Europe. Bodywork is one of my main passions. I'm endlessly expanding on my knowledge of the human body through my daily professional practice and continual participation in various educative workshops and courses in UK and abroad. I gain so much from every encounter with a body I massage and I'm grateful I have opportunity to witness some of the most amazing healing occurring when a person lets go, connects with the power of breath and release of blockages ( physical, emotional, energetic) through allowing my touch to assist them in journey of restoring natural wellbeing. 

I'm also a Yoga Alliance certified Yoga Teacher and my own ongoing yoga practice helps me further to understand the human body and respect its limitations and unique ways of expression. 

With over 10 years of contact improvisation dance explorations I've learned a lot about body's mechanics, movement, respecting its own wisdom and developing receptivity to listen to IT, and!!! allowing to switch off the monkey mind;-)

My last 9 years have been almost entirely focused on studying all about alternative therapies, healing, nutrition and much more. 

I am both honored and happy to share this magical weekend with you! :D

Below is a feedback from my recent Thai massage workshop:

'Last year I experienced Emilia's Thai yoga massage day in this sweet venue. Emilia holds a wonderful combination of playful not-too-serious, nurturing atmosphere, and a real technical competence clearly borne from experience and devotion.Hopefully I'll be able to move into regular practice and more formal learning this year.' Vijay 

And here I share feedback from my student who I was teaching 1:1 massage skills to share with his family & friends: 

'Emilia is incredibly professional, with clearly planned and thought out lessons and extra material to take away and learn. She's dedicated to sharing her clear love for the subject as well as her deep knowledge and years of experience. She stays totally engaged throughout the lessons, and really listens and watches carefully to make sure you understand, are improving and having fun. Through bespoke one on one sessions we explored some of the philosophy, exercises and wider context of massage before learning each of the individual strokes. Working together on a volunteer, I could watch and copy her strokes as she and the volunteer gave great feedback. It was never rushed across our many sessions, and we took the time to really enjoy the learning process and master the different areas of the body. It's been a wonderfully positive and enlightening experience and I can't wait to take my new found skills out and practice. Emilia is amazing!'
