The Morjim Sequences

In these short sequences of around 45 minutes in length, we treat a specific area of ​​the body (pelvis, knees, shoulders, neck, back, feet, etc.). We use dynamic and static, silent techniques from Thai massage, osteo-thai, craniosacral therapy to work with the tissue and to relax, loosen and unwinding it.

In a playful way we will easily learn more sophisticated technics by repeating principles. It will also offer deeper understandings about the benefits and how the body reacts by being approached in different ways. This observations/reactions can be useful to give us more clarity on choosing a specific approach in a particular situation. These sequences can be perfectly used as a short treatment with a more therapeutic aspect or can be combined into a longer flow. „The Morjim Sequences“ got their name as an homage to the little Indian town Morjim, where Sia spent many months studying yoga and teaching Thai massage classes every Monday and Thursday to all different kinds of bodyworkers, beginners and non-professional Thai massage enthusiastic.

This 6 days course is the beginning of a new chapter, “Body Poetry”. We getter in a circle, to explore and discover a unique way of  living, palpating and treating. The Principles we share are “universal cornerstones” for us, “the essence” of our practice, we want to share with YOU.

Anatomy, Physiology, Biomechanics, Biodynamics, are just a few words to start our journey with. We will travel the path of the liquids and prana. We will explore the human emotions, expressed in the internal organs. Palpate rhythm, flow and vitality. We will share how we treat and build up a routine, which gives a guideline within creativity, freedom and space.

Body Poetry means that we perceive the present moment clear as possible, vulnerable, intimate, free of identity. In this emptiness, everything can happen, nothing must. Receiver and Giver become one and the beauty is in simplicity of nature and the expression of life through the human body experience.
