Words from Alex Ryberg:
“This class is open to any and all persons and students from any background or level of training. Thai Yoga, also known as Thai massage is founded on the ancient Indian principles of Ayurveda “The Science of Life.” Ayurveda promotes health through balanced and conscious living. A basic introduction to SomaVeda® Thai Yoga, this intensive is suitable for new students or practitioners seeking an entirely holistic modality from a spiritual perspective. SomaVeda® Thai Yoga and massage incorporates elements of mindfulness, gentle rocking, deep stretching and rhythmic compression to create a singular healing experience. Expect to gain tremendous insight into your daily practice.”
This course is an intensive hands-on training; students move a lot throughout the day in order to effectively remember the sequence & vinyasa down to a muscular level, aka - muscle memory.
- Introduce/Understand the SomaVeda™ model of learning, called the flow technique. This technique allows students to build a keen sense of each step in a flowing singular motion and is one of the hallmarks of the SomaVeda™ System. Full understanding of this technique prepares the student for further, more advanced levels & training.
- Learn a complete basic vinyasa incorporating all five body attitudes: supine, side-lying, prone, second supine/abdominal, seated. Consists of 19 therapeutic postures that amount to a 60-minute general beginner's balancing session. The vinyasa is unique to Somaveda™ and designed to prepare the student in learning more detailed technique/steps in further levels of training.
- Introduce basic physiology, energetic anatomy, sen lines and chakra theory as well Thai Yoga’s classical Ayurvedic roots
- Basic introduction to contraindications and adaptable, clinical medical applications of SomaVeda™ Thai Yoga
More About This Experience from Suzy Corgiat:
Come join us for a transformational weekend at Fulton Yoga Collective. Thai Yoga Medicine is becoming a highly sought-after form of treatment by the highest echelons of the rich and famous throughout the world. You will find these techniques both very practical to the physiology, as well as engaging energetically and spiritually.
This type of Bodywork is also increasing in demand in Corporate & Clinical settings, Health/Yoga Retreats, Health Spas, Gyms, and Sports Events. Thai Yoga complements and can be used in conjunction with a variety of other Bodywork modalities and forms of Yoga. Suzy Corgiat uses these techniques directly with Fresno State Athletes, as an integral part of their Sports Medicine program. Bodyworkers of all kinds can learn how to implement these techniques, as a complement to the rest of their practice.
If you are new to Bodywork in general, you will gain both the confidence and competence to compassionately give a 45-60 minute session to those you care about. This immersive Training and Certification focuses on the dynamic flow of gentle yet highly effective movements, that are easily initiated through precise body mechanics.
All SomaVeda® Trainings led by Suzy Corgiat & Alex Ryberg are part of ONACS, and all participants become Certified Members of ONACS. You will also be asked to sign a standard waiver/liability agreement to participate.

From Suzy: I decided that this form of therapy was more effective in helping people long term because of how it helped me. I received the bodywork for 2 weeks straight as I was learning it and all the chronic pain I had been enduring for several years was completely gone. I finally understood that pain felt in one area would not be fixed for good simply by doing soft tissue manipulation (Swedish, deep tissue, neuromuscular techniques) on the effected area. Especially when dealing with the shoulders, neck and back, the system of alignment must be trained to stay in the perfect spot, rather than "rubbed." More importantly, this elegant system has shown me how to live my life more mindfully and with self-love. I used to struggle with that so desperately and sadly, but now I see no end to my progress. I keep rising, I feel better, people tell me how much better I look and my confidence is growing.
My goal is to help as many people as possible as much as these therapies have helped me: the most effective way to do that is through SomaVeda's highly sophisticated "Therapeutic Day" program. This is my chance to offer you real world-class bodywork and therapy.
