My yoga journey

Reusi Dat Ton Workshop

on June 5, 2017

Reusi Dat Ton is also known as Thai Yoga. It’s not that well known and certainly a lots less known than most yoga styles.

Two weeks ago I went to a workshop run by Clara Pelica at Neal Yard in Edinburgh. It was really great and I can’t wait for the next one. Clara ran through the origins of Reusi Dat Ton, which was created for the Thai monks and hermits for when they’d been meditating for days at a time. The moves are mainly small and focus on various trigger points across the body.

We covered 15 different moves in the workshop and got given a workbook with them all in. Some are quite similar to yoga poses or adaptations of poses that I’ve done in classes before. The breath however is very different. You move on a inhale, reach final position, hold your breath then come out on an exhale. It takes a while to get used to it but I quite like it.

I’ve only managed to do a few of the exercises since the workshop as the kitchen is finally being finished and as a result my kitchen is currently all in my livingroom. I’ll report back once I’ve done more self practice but this is certainly something that I can see me doing more of.
