Class Description of Melt
With the hands of a skilled Thai massage practitioner, one can experience a sublimely rhythmical workout that balances the body’s need for movement and stretching. Utilizing pressing techniques, gentle rocking, various yoga-like stretches, clients are able to relieve body stiffness, gain flexibility and help improve overall balance in major muscle groups.
Massage is able to stimulate energy lines which help promote and balance energy throughout the body. Thai massage interacts directly with the muscular, circulatory and nervous systems to enhance your body’s natural healing ability. This work is done fully clothed and no oils are used.

Yin – Restorative Yoga
Yin yoga is based on release work of one’s connective tissues surrounding your joints and in between the vertebrae of your spine. Restorative yoga is a therapeutic approach to breath and body re-alignment. Both focus on calming the body and mind, finding stillness in a meditative state. The focus of both is deep muscular + myofascial release utilizing yoga props and padding such as bolsters, and blocks which allow you to melt into the postures for 2 – 3 minutes or more pending.
Yin and Restorative yoga combined, will release, restore and re-align muscular imbalances in supported yoga postures as Thai massage comes with each new posture. In class you will simply “melt”!
