Thai-yoga bodywork traces its roots back to the ancient healing therapies of India and Tibet. The therapist draws on these age-old wisdoms to integrate rhythmic compressions of the feet, knees, palms, elbows, forearms, back, head, and fingers with practitioner-assisted yoga asanas. The physical and emotional benefits of these sessions can range from enhanced blood circulation to relief from chronic pain and stress. Add herbal compresses imported from Thailand for an extra $20. The entrance is located on the side of the building, and there is additional parking in the rear.
Metta Yoga Studio
Sarah Wartell, a trained practitioner in thai-yoga bodywork, yoga, and Japanese reiki therapy, helms a studio in which she calls on all three holistic modalities to achieve optimal physical and mental healing. During yoga classes for all abilities, the studio fills with the sounds of controlled breathing, stretch-induced groans, and high-pitched yelps of contentment from downward-facing dogs. Agency shifts to the therapist during thai-yoga bodywork sessions that achieve heightened states of relaxation with a blend of focused compression and assisted poses. To practice their similarly holistic art, reiki therapists draw on ancient Japanese techniques designed to shuffle life-force energies around the body. Sarah’s mission to relax bodies and minds simultaneously is reflected in her studio’s décor, which features artwork depicting peace signs and leafy trees.
