Thai Yoga or Rue Sri Datton evolved in Thailand by Buddhist Hermits who isolated themselves in lived in remote areas. These Hermits practiced meditation for many hours, and they began to realize they needed a way that would allow them to release the pain and maintain overall health. Although there was healer monks trained in traditional Thai medicine, these Hermits were alone and in the wilderness unable to access these treatments. Confronted with this immediate need and using their knowledge of Traditional Thai Medicine, they created the Rue Sri Datton. The practice uses stretched that are focused on the area to be treated. Rue Si Datton is composed of over 120 exercises suitable for different levels of experience.
These exercises can be done by everyone and with proper technique can stimulate the whole body from head to toe. These techniques also result in auto-massage relaxing the muscles and opening up blood vessels. Once you try a few Rue Si Datton sessions and feel the benefits of this practice you may find it becomes addictive.

•20 Poses that work the entire body
•the correct way to carry out the positions
•the enjoyment of stretching & strengthening the muscles and being aware of the body
Time: Wed Night from 5-6 PM or Tuesday and Thursday Morning at 8am

The Thai Retreat is a fantastic weekend away at the local Hermitage. The rustic setting is just what we need to unplug and shed the stresses of everyday life. We will be sharing a cabin at Hermitage, developing our meditation techniques, and practicing Rue Si Datton. There will also be the opportunity to help prepare a couple of Thai Dishes and learn a little bit about my rich culture and heritage (maybe even a few words of Thai if you are interested).
Telling stories around a fire on a cool autumn night, enjoying the sound of the river and falls, meeting new friends, and enjoying each other’s company while leaving our daily lives behind for a couple of days. After the weekend you will feel rejuvenated and distressed!
