THAI YOGA EXERCISES VIDEO | Thai Yoga Coburg Studio
Below you will find a series of videos about Thai Yoga.
(Please, be aware that previously I used to offer this practice under the name of Self Thai Massage).
This series of video’s have been designed to refresh your knowledge and understanding of Thai Yoga.
In each video, Giovanni will give a detailed lesson, recapturing what you will have learned in his personal classes. It is beneficial to take the time to refresh your understanding and practices for each of the exercises to maximise your personal benefit.
If you have no experience with these exercises, it is recommended you make a booking with Giovanni. He will inform you about all the exercise practices, the benefits they bring, and how you can use them in your daily life to help improve your wellbeing.
Attention: These exercises are not recommended for those with conditions such as Hypertension, Diabetes n1 or whilst pregnant.
This video is designed to provide you with a brief understanding of Thai Yoga.
The son of teachers, Giovanni has an inherited ability to present these exercises classes in a succinct manner, using well-crafted analogies to explain the exercise practice as well as any difficult concepts.
Thai Yoga – Breathing Exercise
After the brief introduction about Self Thai Massage exercises shown in video 1, it is now time to focus on, understand, and practice breathing.
Thai Yoga – Feet Exercise
In order to be grounded, it is best to start with exercise on our feet.
To practice this exercise, Giovanni will instruct how the breathing wave can create pressure on the plantar foot.
Using a golf or tennis ball, he demonstrates how to open the plantar fascia which will release the tension along the whole leg. As the fascia connection from the plantar, runs along the back of the leg, the pressure applied to the plantar fascia, will release tension from the hamstring as well.
Thai Yoga – Shoulder exercise for Stress Management
In our fast-paced modern world, Stress plays a major role in our everyday life. Often, we tend to accumulate stress on our shoulders. In this video, Giovanni demonstrates an exercise to offer a quick fix and a good way to reduce stress and shoulders tensions.
Thai Yoga – Exercise for Forearms
Now we have worked successfully on our shoulders, we move down the arms. In this and the following videos 6 and 7, Giovanni will show you exercise to release the tensions from your forearms.
Thai Yoga – Wrist Exercises
The exercises in this video focus on the wrist. This exercise will teach how self-massage the wrist. If we compare these exercises to those demonstrated in video 3 for the feet, the sensation we feel in our wrist/hand’s palm is much gentler. However, if done correctly, it is a good way to improve wrist mobility.
Thai Yoga – Stretching for the forearms
Having worked successfully on the wrist, we now progress to exercise which stretch the forearm.
To warm up this area, before performing this stretch, it is recommended, you work through the exercises in the previous videos 5 and 6.
Thai Yoga – Neck Exercise
Now, having already exercised our Shoulders, Hands and Forearms, we will complete the upper limb area, with an exercise for the neck.
It is important to protect the delicate nature of the neck, movement for this exercise must be conducted in a slow and gentle manner.
Thai Yoga – Exercise for Hip Flexors
Having completed the exercises on the upper limbs of the body, we can start now focus on the lower limbs.To start the lower limbs, we must complete exercise for hip flexors.
Thai Yoga – Exercise for Lower Back & Hip Flexors
IMPORTANT: This exercise is not recommended for people who suffer from knee injuries.
Now we look at exercise to stretch out the lower back group of muscles, and hip flexors upper tendons.
Thai Yoga – Exercise for the Calf
Moving down from the lower back and hips, this exercise demonstrates how to self-massage the calf.
This technique can also be used to self-massage the adductors group of muscles and/or plantar in the foot.
Thai Yoga – Returning to the Feet
To conclude the series of Self Thai Massage exercises, we get back to the feet. In this exercise, we look in too how to re-open and stretch the plantar fascia and toes.
