What We Believe Is Reflected In The Design Of Our Program
The actual content of the program has been carefully aligned with our core beliefs. The following statements represent the choices we have made based upon our highest ideals.
We believe that experience counts when it comes to qualified instruction.
Lead Teacher and Director Paul Fowler has over 20 years of teaching experience and will be leading the 200 Hour Training.
We believe it takes an extended period of study to get comfortable with the floor-based modality of Thai bodywork.
We have created a six month program that consists of six separate 27-hour weekends with 3 weeks in between to practice. We offer a one year option as well.
We believe that teacher / student mentorship is key in building fluency.
One teacher or assistant per four students at the minimum gives a lot of opportunity for informed feedback and experienced correction.
We believe it is important to give students a bridge between the classroom and the real world.
The program includes supervised student clinic and community service experiences.
We believe people learn better in a classroom community.
Students study and practice together for the entire program creating strong bonds of support and friendship.
We believe in giving graduates of our program opportunities for further study.
We offer Advanced Training, an Assistants Teaching Program, Supervised Practice, Group Meditation and a school sponsored trips to Thailand.
We believe in honoring our deep connection to Thailand and the lineage of Thai Bodywork.
Founders Paul Fowler and Paul Weitz have been committed to studying with master teachers here and in Thailand for the past 15 years. Paul Fowler has been to Thailand nine times to study with his teacher Pichest Boonthumme.
We believe Thai bodywork is a healing practice for both the practitioner and receiver.
We put great emphasis on proper physical alignment and safe technique. We explore ways in which the practitioner can make this a healing practice not only for others but for herself as well.
We believe the heart of Thai bodywork is lovingkindness and compassion.
We emphasize mindfulness, meditation and Buddhist studies to support the physical practice.
We believe that to be a part of another’s healing we need to be in the process of healing ourselves.
We encourage development of students’ own health and self-growth practices by teaching self-massage, stretching, meditation, positive reflection and much more.
