What’s covered in the Foundation Certificate course?

You will learn the fundamentals of Thai Yoga Massage (TYM) and will be able to give a range of different treatments lasting between 1 hour and 90-minutes, as well as “taster” sessions. This includes Thai yoga massage in three positions (supine, prone and side-lying), and working the Sen (energy) lines. Classes are kept small to ensure close supervision (maximum student:teacher ratio of 8:1).

Course Overview

Thai yoga massage is a very different form of bodywork. It takes time and a lot of practice to learn the many different moves and approaches that are required to give a good Thai yoga massage. The structure of this Thai yoga massage course is designed to nurture and develop our students into becoming excellent practitioners. The whole routine is split into sections that can be learnt and developed through home practice. The importance of regular practice between teaching blocks cannot be overestimated and is an integral part of the course.

Every Thai Yoga Massage (TYM) taught session includes two demonstrations of the sequence; each student gets many opportunities to receive a sequence from the tutor throughout the course. The sequence is then demonstrated in small, “bite-size” segments which the students practise on each other under close supervision. In addition to the the taught sessions, students will receive written hand-outs including short descriptions and colour photos.

Course structure

There are a number of different options for the course so you can study at a time to suit you. Each course has 6 days of training, plus an assessment day which will be scheduled to take place approximately two months later (to allow students time to complete their case studies). The course can be taken at weekends, or weekdays, or a mixture of the two.

After each training session, students will be expected to build their hands-on experience of TYM with logged case-studies. There are a total of 50 taught hours. In addition there are 30 hours of case-studies. The final assessment will be an observed massage treatment once all home-study has been completed.

Course requirements

Each applicant must have a level 3 massage qualification including Anatomy & Physiology (A&P) at level 3 or equivalent. Ideally, applicants will have attended an introduction to Thai yoga massage workshop (either with Central School or another comparable organisation).
