Yoga and Pilates have taken the world by storm growing tremendously over
the last 10-20 years. Everyone knows what yoga or pilates "is" and how it can help. Sure there is probably someone out there on earth that doesn’t know
what yoga or pilates "is" but they are “few and far” between.
I’ve met countless Yoga and Pilates Instructors over the years. I've had lots of conversations about thier career and have also conducted my own little research.
Did you know that nearly 67,000 Yoga/Pilates Instructors graduate programs each year? That's a lot of people entering the teaching career.
There is one consistent message I hear from practically all instructors that continues to ring in my ear. I've hear that it’s very difficult to create a living from just teaching yoga or pilates classes. I do not know this first hand but I hear from instructors all the time that it's very challenging for them to teach what they love and still provide for themselves and their families.
This is always really painful to hear no matter how many times, I hear it. It’s always painful to hear that someone is limited from doing what he or she loves because it’s difficult to make a living.
Luckily, I’ve helpped a multitude of Yoga/Pilates Instructors continue to do the work they love while also expanding their practice.
Gaining additional skills in Thai Massage for a Yoga/Pilates instructor can be the lifeblood that allows you to continue the work you love. Learning Thai massage can help you help others improve their health, improve your classes with knowledge to benefit students and immediately create a consistant income stream through offering therapeutic Thai massage sessions.
This is the exact recipe that allows instructors to continuing doing what they love, supporting themselves and their families. Knowing that I have contributed to a positive outcome for so many instructors brings me more joy than just about anything on earth.
Yoga, Pilates, and Thai massage is all about helping people but if the financial support is not there for you, it’s difficult to help others.
Adding Thai massage to your skills and experience can allow you to grow and continue the career you love while providing for you and your family.

“My experience with the Basic Thai Massage course that the Thai Institute provides was wonderful. I learned a lot about our bodies. Where the art came from, the meaning, the benefits from giving this massage as well as receiving it. The setting of the class is very comforting. I think David was a wonderful teacher, he was fun and at the same time very specific. He is very patient as well as motivating. I highly encourage anyone who truly wants to help people heal to learn this technique because it is effective and many wonderful benefits will come from it. "
I look forward to sharing the gift of Thai massage and Thai traditions with you.
with loving kindiness,
