Yoga & Thai Massage in Fort Collins
Private Yoga with Thai Massage
Yoga is a practice of self-healing that works with both the mind and body. In this one-hour private yoga session, we will tailor a class for you based on your specific needs including strengthening, flexibility, and stress/pain management. With specific instruction on posture alignment and breathing techniques you will feel comfortable practicing at home, or safely in a group class. Throughout our session, you will receive adjustments and Thai massage, not only to correct alignment but also to deepen and relax into the stretches. We will end with a long guided relaxation and a full body Thai massage. Wear loose comfortable clothes and be ready to build a beautiful practice.

Emma Barrett, RYT 200
Emma’s journey with yoga began simply as a way to increase balance and flexibility to supplement rock climbing. As her practice developed she found that yoga became a transformative tool that gave her more peace in both her body and mind. After obtaining a Bachelors degree from Colorado State University she traveled to India, the birthplace of yoga, to further her education and complete her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. With influences in Thai massage, Hatha, Vinyasa, and Iyngar she teaches yoga with a focus on alignment and hopes to share the joy of yoga with her students.
When she’s not in a handstand you can find her skiing the Colorado slopes, baking a strawberry pie, or biking to the Fort Collins breweries.

“Being a runner, breathing is very crucial to my sport. It was through yoga that I learned how to breath properly; to breath deeply engaging my diaphragm.” – Josanne Lucas
