It all started when…

Founder and avid yogi Mandy decided to start training as an Anusara yogi. She instantly fell in love with the alignment and therapeutic aspects of yoga. This eventually led into a more hands on approach through Vedic Thai Yoga Massage and Bodywork. Now, interlacing all of these approaches together with a joyful and playful experience on the mat, we have created Amrita Bodywork. Amrita, is the Sanskrit word meaning, Nectar, or sweet juice. This is what we all hope to extract from each and every recipient of this sweet, heartfelt offering.

Vedic Thai Bodywork - Assisted Yoga is traditionally performed on a large comfortable cotton futon floor mat which gives the receiver both comfort and full-body support. Working on the floor also allows the therapist to move freely around and above the client, making for effective use of the therapist’s bodyweight and mechanics. The therapist can also work with the receiver in a variety of positions, including prone, supine, side-lying, and seated.



In a Vedic Thai Bodywork - Assisted Yoga session you will wear loose-fitting or stretchy clothing that allows your body to move. No oils are needed. The techniques used work far beneath the surface of the body, effecting the deeper layers of the muscles and skeleton.



Treatments are routinely modified to include sensitivities addressing acute and chronic conditions, including: herniated disks, subluxations, muscle strain, joint replacements, surgeries, and pregnancy.



The Thai-Yoga Therapist doesn’t just use the power of their hands and fingers. They use their hands, their fingers, their palms, arms, knees, and feet, along with the reciever’s body weight and their resistance to provide a deeply moving experience. The Thai-Yoga Therapist enters into a meditative awareness adapting every asana stretch and technique to the client’s exact need, whether soft or strong.
