Thai Reusi Dot Ton Yoga

Begin learning the first form of the Buddhai Sawan style Thai Reishi/ “Reussi Dotton” Hand Yoga Vinyassa. Reishi Hand Yoga is a derivative ancient work consisting of 108 Yoga Asana or postures, primarily, although not exclusively, done with the hands and arms. The postures focus on the Microcosmic orbit of the body’s energy and Chakras 4 and 5. The arms, hand meridians, and Prana Nadi are energized and balanced. This work may correct and balance the harmful effects of injury, trauma, and repetitive stress causing deterioration of the hands, arms, and joints, including wrist, elbow, and shoulder. These Thai Reussi Dottan Hand Yoga Postures and Flow were traditionally used by the “Warriors” (Buddhai Sawan Krabi Krabong) of ancient Thailand to strengthen and protect their arms and hands from the rigors of training and fighting with Swords (Dap Deo) and other traditional combat weapons. If they can protect battle-hardened warriors, they can protect the therapist and healer! Of course, if you practice Martial Arts, this fantastic set of conditioning hand yoga postures can reduce injury and give you more strength!
