Thai massage incorporates the principles of yoga and acupressure into a rhythmic program of bodywork designed to balance the body’s energy channels and relieve tension in muscles and joints. The therapist relies on targeted pressures rather than oils, so you can stay fully clothed while the massage works to stimulate your internal organs and harmonize your body, mind, and spirit.
Core Essence Yoga
Sunlight filters through the windows of Core Essence Yoga’s loft-style studio, reflecting off the rare patch of hardwood floor that remains uncovered by a colorful yoga mat. Stretch-induced groans escape the lips of students as they lift their legs high into the air or arch their backs and touch their palms to the floor behind them. The studio’s instructors—all of whom are registered yoga teachers and many of whom have achieved 200-hour certifications in their chosen style—look on approvingly and illustrate subsequent poses with their own lithe bodies.
The above scene typifies the classes offered at Core Essence Yoga, a studio on the east side of town that caters to beginners and experienced yogis alike. Music diffuses throughout the semi-heated room during Slow Flow classes that introduce new students to the Vinyasa style with gentle movements and focused breathing techniques. Instructors crank up the thermostat for advanced Power Vinyasa classes, which establish stronger ties between breath and movement and experiment with challenging poses such as arm inversions and downward-facing octopuses. Muscles strained during these sweat-inducing sessions regain their vitality during relaxing Thai massages. An ancient form of bodywork that draws on the collected wisdom of 2,500 years, Thai massage balances the body’s energy channels, releases emotional blocks, and evaporates stresses.
