Thai Bodywork Training with Christina is life-changing. Her over two decades of experience, paired with her depth of embodiment in yoga makes this a well rounded training. We learned about the history of this practice and how to root ourselves in loving kindness in order to be a channel for healing. We learned how to take care of our bodies as bodywork practitioners, as well as how to tailor the thai sequence to different kinds of bodies. The heartwood retreat center is beautiful, clean and vibrant. The land itself invites connection with nature, and the amenities are deluxe! The food is healthy and delicious, and Christina makes divine chocolate treats which she bestows upon us throughout this intensive weekend training as a delightful pick me up. I recommend Thai bodywork to anyone looking to elevate their skills in providing potent nurturing care to others.

I cannot put into words how perfect this training felt on every level. The authenticity of the material and way in which it’s delivered; being able to give and receive this practice and to follow along with and learn from Christina was an honor. Christina honors the traditions of Thai Bodywork as well as offers her own sequence and manual that made diving into the practice approachable and fun. It was awesome to learn a Thai Bodywork sequence as well as dive into more advanced moves to filter into our flow. Im left feeling inspired and revitalized, Im working as a massage therapist and this has opened up a whole new world for me. Im thankful for the presence of the participants, the beauty of the spaces at the retreat center, and the incredible nourishing food. This retreat center has changed my life.

My time spent at this retreat was incredibly nourishing to my body, mind, and spirit. Christina has a beautiful way of cultivating a safe and sacred container for all, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn from such a powerful spiritual teacher. The information and wisdom learned at the Thai Bodywork retreat awakened a deep remembrance of what it looks like to be in service to one another in a loving and nurturing way. I feel so prepared to step fully into sharing the gift of Thai Bodywork with my community!
