Curriculum Paths for September 2022 Event

  • Lymphatic Drainage Series - This series includes both Fundamentals of Lymphatic Drainage and Advanced Lymphatic Drainage. Get a thorough understanding of the Lymphatic Drainage system to help your clients and leave the resort with exceptional skills that are in extremely high demand. 
     
  • Traditional Thai Massage - Take both Levels I and II of this amazing modality. This includes a 30-hour intensive program that is considered to be one of the most comprehensive Thai Massage programs in the world and one of the most amazing locations you can imagine to take it!

The opportunity to learn from these gifted instructors is rare enough; to learn from them in this incredible setting will be one of the great events of a lifetime. Classes are held in an elevated pavilion with stunning views of the forest and countryside.

 

Extracurricular Activities  
 

Group tours will be conducted during off-hours. You can go with the group or make your way on your own. Take a hike to the hot springs, check out a volcano, go zip-lining through a cloud canopy, visit waterfalls, volcanoes, beaches. There are so many spectacular eco-adventures to choose from. Maybe a guided hike through the hillside coffee fields, or a day-long whitewater rafting trip! Make sure to check out one of the daily yoga classes and bring your bathing suit and hop in the hot tub. You might wish to receive spa services or just relax by the pool and enjoy the change of pace. Maybe you want to sip on a cup of tea and meditate in the mountains. You get to select your curriculum path and your outside activities; it is entirely your choice!
