Elements of Touch Workshop with Lily & Luke
2 February, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm$36.25 – $61.25
Join us for a beautiful afternoon exploring the Elements through Touch guided by the incredible Lily & Luke! Then stick around and connect with tribe, as we dance our way into the night with an evening ‘Constellations’ YOKE Dance with resident, Nuage.
Elements of Touch is a hands-on workshop that offers participants new ways to think about touch, through the lens of the five elements and the basic principles of Zen Thai Shiatsu. Learn to listen to a deeper rhythm as we journey through an afternoon of bodywork, calling on the elements of fire, earth, water fire and ether.
The workshop incorporates a dynamic exploration of touch through the lens of the five elements followed by an introduction to the guiding principles and some basic techniques of Zen Thai Shiatsu, including a short guided sequence. Participants will walk away with new massage techniques, a greater understanding of the power of working with the body, and connected open hearts.
Lily and Luke are practicing Zen Thai Shiatsu therapists, a unique and much-loved form of bodywork developed on Australia’s Sunshine Coast. Drawing on the ancient practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda it combines Thai massage, Zen Shiatsu, Osteopathy and Yoga into a flowing practice that provides focussed remedial and deeply restorative work for the physical and energetic body.
Otherwise known as “Lily of the Herbs”, Lily has extensive experience running workshops and one-on-one consultations that connect people to their bodies. Her fluid and dynamic practice is both nourishing and energizing.
Luke has a background in Ayurveda which he combines with ZenThai to provide precise restorative work and a deep state of relaxation.
About The YOKE Movement:
YOKE is a Melbourne based community centred around movement based practices. The word YOKE is a Sanskrit term meaning ‘coming together’, forming union. Our workshops are about facilitating authentic connections to oneself and one other in a space completely free from judgments. We invite you to take the time to let go of the mind and drop into the body through conscious dance, movement and meditation. YOKE is a collaborative consciousness calling all individuals seeking to express intuitively and energize the soul on a collective level.
