Thai Yoga Massage

Breathing in I calm my body. Breathing out I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment.

Both parties wear comfortable, modest yoga clothing. Thai Yoga massage helps flush the lymph system, regulates digestive fire, relaxes the body and re-focused the mind.

GiannaGianna Rose Skates is the owner and director of Wellness for  Life – facilitating balanced health through massage, yoga and pilates therapy. For the last 12 years she have been a professional in the wellness field. Recently Gianna created and managed Kula Cooperative – a mindful movement place for all – that allows people of all backgrounds to experience mind/body movement and meditation. Her therapeutic niche is to meet people where they are at and bring them  from a rehabilitation level to a life of ease. For instance, she worked closely with Back on Track Physical Therapy and created an ongoing weekly class to help those coming out of physical therapy achieve their goals of  healing by blending the Pilates and Yoga with the PT exercises. Giana has helped  those from knee and hip replacement, lower back pain, ski injuries and surgery find more strength and flexibility in their body, mind and spirit.  Yoga Pilates Therapy is for all levels of athletes. By creating an elongated and stabilized core, hips and shoulders release and the body/mind are more effective and efficient in movement.

Gianna’s teaching style allows one to feel at ease while at the same time being challenged to the next level of wellness. She has been well trained by her teachers to instruct, what to do, how to do and the effect of doing. Most students come out of her classes feeling a renewed sense of center.

Heart of the Village Yoga Studio has recently welcomed Gianna in to the Sangha. She is offering Yoga Pilates Therapy Classes from Noon to 1pm on Fridays. This class focuses on developing core strength from the inside out. Using breath work, imagery, alignment cues and body mechanics, Yoga Pilates Therapy is perfect for ALL ages and levels of students. Click here to enroll.
