Thai Yoga 101 with Aaron Erickson
Learn, experience, & exchange the beautiful and ancient healing art of "nurad borarn” Vedic Thai-Yoga Bodywork. This practice is also known as "lazyman's yoga" or "the royal treatment".
Assisted stretching (asana) is combined with rhythmic compressions along energy lines (meridians/nadis) while targeting marmas (energy points) with the intention of releasing holding patterns and stagnant energy built up with in the system. Also utilizing breath coaching, meditation, and energy work, the intention of a vedic thai-yoga session is to promote physical & spiritual wellness and illumination, for both the receiver and the giver. This is a practice considered to be part of Bhakti Yoga (loving devotion and service).
Within the workshop Aaron will briefly discuss Vedic philosophy and then guide you through a sequence of the art. You will then switch partners and return the love. The Vedic tradition takes into account the multi-dimensionality of our being and receives the body as an energetic mandala. Vedic Thai yoga is a loving folk art meant to be shared with friends, loved ones, and community. In a nutshell: The practice is comparable to doing yoga to someone else.
As a yoga teacher it will help you to find true confidence in your touch assists and will be a valuable skill you can share with clients in your private sessions.
Bring a partner or you may come solo and we will pair you up.

Committed? Take all 5 sessions for $165.
Krista Shirley is a dedicated student and practitioner of traditional Ashtanga yoga. She is an Authorized Level 2 teacher in the Ashtanga tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. She was introduced to this practice over ten years ago and immediately embraced it as a daily part of her life because she was magnetically drawn to the healing this practice provides. For the last eleven years Krista has rolled her mat out each day because it is such an intrinsic part of who she is. Ashtanga Yoga has given Krista health and wellness, comfort, stability, peace, mindfulness and an outlet to work on herself and help others.
Krista began making yearly, long term, visits to Mysore, India in 2006 to study with the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Guruji, in order to fully connect to this lineage and embrace and surrender to a teacher that could help facilitate her growth and provide a deep source of inspiration. Since Guruji’s passing in 2009 Krista continues to make the yearly pilgrimage to India to study with Guruji’s grandson R. Sharath Jois who has dedicated his life continuing the work of Guruji, ensuring this deeply rich lineage, this parampara, lives on in the name of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.
Krista’s dedication to her personal yoga practice and the Ashtanga lineage shine through in her teaching. Her energy is contagious and inspiring because she lives this yoga daily and experiences tremendous fulfillment in helping people find and deepen their growth in this practice. Krista continues her trips to Mysore each year because she believes it is very important all students have a teacher, a guide, to aid and inspire along the path. In 2010 she traveled to Mysore six months pregnant, and in 2012 and 2013 she took her year old little boy to Mysore with her. She has made eight trips to Mysore, India to continue her own studies and spent over twenty three months of her life studying at the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India.
Krista is a level 2 authorized Ashtanga teacher and founder of The Yoga Shala in Winter Park, Florida where she teaches traditional Ashtanga yoga classes in the Mysore method. Originally from South Carolina, Krista resides in Florida with her son, Kaiden.
