Thai Yoga Therapy
Thai yoga therapy is a part of the traditional healing system of Thailand. Practiced by Buddhist monks for the last 2500 years, it was first introduced in the United States in 1990. It's ancient origins are linked to Yoga, Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine, as well as the indigenous healing practices of ancient Siam. It is still used in Thailand today as part of the healing regime for many different ailments of the body. Thai yoga therapy is a combination of gentle rocking, range of motion, passive stretching and gentle pressure along energy lines. Joints are loosened and opened through manipulation and peripheral stimulation, muscles are stretched, internal organs are toned, vitality is increased and a deep state of relaxation can be achieved. Nothing like western massage therapy, it is often referred to as "lazy man's yoga." Receiving Thai yoga therapy is a bit like doing yoga without putting forth any effort while simultaneously getting an acupressure and reflexology treatment. With these techniques, applied in a quietly meditative atmosphere, space is created in the musculoskeletal structure, the body begins to open and regain flexibility and ease of movement, while the mind gently returns to calm alertness. The body's energy system is rebalanced, blood and lymph circulation is improved and internal organs are stimulated by pressure on peripheral reflex points. Sessions typically last two hours, and are performed on a floor mat with the client dressed in comfortable loose clothing. 2hr session is $95 for incall or $120 for outcall.
Yoga Teacher Training
The 200 hour training is a time-tested program designed to enhance the overall health of the yoga practitioners by deepening and refining the layers of their yoga practice. Set yourself apart from other yoga teachers by learning skills that will proactively protect against physical and mental injury as well as learning to lead a safe and effective yoga class. This customized program is an integrative approach that focuses on scientific study of asanas, which incorporate elements of facilitated stretching, bio-mechanics and movement therapeutics. Emphasis is placed on both physical and psychological benefits of yoga, including muscle flexibility, strength, balance and range of joint motion. Personal empowerment lifestyle models are presented in order to allow trainees to explore various traditional methods that can be used to harmonize the body, mind and spirit. Standards are enhanced in preparation for professional training (RYT 500) by the introduction of Raja Yoga, Yoga Philosophy and Sanskrit terminology. Yoga Anatomy and postural mechanics are taught on three levels, verbal, visual and experiential. We use a variety of visual aids based on: skeletal models, kinesiology and the study of common movement patterns that tend to result in repetitive stress injury. Students learn to conduct classes in several styles such as Hatha, Vinyasa and Modified Ashtanga/Power Yoga so that trainees can modify their teaching repertoire according to current demands of various yoga studios. Class observations and practice teaching requirements help trainees develop experience and confidence in their teaching skills before completing the program

Established in May of 2000, It’s Yoga was the first registered yoga school in the Tri-State Area to be certified by the National Yoga Alliance to train yoga instructors. As a result, we provide exceptional teachers and an amazing array of yoga styles that appeals to all fitness levels. Rather than just focusing on just a single form of yoga, instructor or famous personality, It's Yoga encourages all of our carefully chosen 200-500hr RYT certified instructors, to fully express their own creative and unique approach to yoga within their classes.
It’s Yoga-Cincinnati follows the classical system of ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA from the lineage of Sri Krishnamacharya. Unlike many yoga systems, the scientific arrangement of postures gradually builds in difficulty to allow students to safely access their full potential. Accompanied by dynamic breathing, focus, and energy activation, students bring their full attention inward, as they flow from one posture to another creating a moving meditation. As this system builds strength, heat is created, allowing the joints and muscles to open up and release tension -balancing strength with flexibility. In the beginning these physical benefits will be what is most apparent. However, eventually, as your practice grows, you will discover yoga to be just as effective at maintaining mental/emotional equilibrium as a physical one; an invaluable tool for handling everyday stressors giving clarity and focus to your time on and off the mat.
