Thai Massage Essentials & Thai Yoga Basics ~ Back-to-Back Workshops


Offered by EquiLibrium Thai Massage & Yoga Therapy | Hosted by Touchstone Wellness
http://www.EquiLibriumassage.com

Thai Massage and Thai Yoga introductory workshops for massage therapists and yoga practitioners in Bloomington Indiana, on February 22 – 23, 2014. Join EquiLibrium Thai Massage & Yoga Therapy at Touchstone Wellness for two days of learning.

THAI YOGA BASICS
Saturday February 22 from 2-6:30 pm
4 CEs| $75

Thai Yoga (Reusi Dat Ton) Basics is offered as a stand-alone workshop, open to anyone with some experience in movement therapies and who can easily sit cross-legged or kneel without difficulty. Reusi Dat Ton is a purely Thai practice which has been dubbed ‘Thai Yoga’, although is thought to pre-date Hatha yoga and perhaps have influenced its development. It is also the foundation and origin of Traditional Thai Massage. Simple stretches, poses and movements as well as basic breath- work will be introduced during this 4.5 hour (4CE) workshop. See www.EquiLibriumassage.com for more information on Reusi Dat Ton.

THAI MASSAGE ESSENTIALS + THAI YOGA BASICS
Saturday February 22 from 2-6:30 pm and Sunday February 23 from 8 am-2:30 pm
10 CEs Total | $195 includes both workshops

Thai Massage Essentials builds upon the previous workshop… Both must be combined. Traditional Thai massage (Nuad Borarn) is based upon the principles and foundations of Thai Yoga – Reusi Dat Ton, therefore the previous workshop will ready us for the day ahead after a warm-up.

Our primary focus will be on:
* General principles and applications in Traditional Thai Massage
* Basic acupressure, stretching, muscle manipulation, palpation
* Contraindications and precautions
* Mindfulness: The body is a whole, not a sum of parts. Thai Massage emphasizes the importance of treating the entire body, rather than spot-treating or forcing a change in one area

IU Art Museum, 1133 E. 7th Street
http://www.artmuseum.iu.edu

Hours: Tuesday – Saturday: 10:00 – 5:00 p.m. Sunday: Noon – 5:00 p.m.

Special Exhibition: ‘Faculty Artists from IU’s Hope School of Fine Arts’
January 25–March 9, 2014 Special Exhibitions Gallery and Judi and Milt Stewart Hexagon Gallery, first floor Featuring ca. forty artists (both current and emeriti faculty) from IU’s renowned Hope School of Fine Art, this exhibition offers a survey of recent works in a wide range of media, including ceramics, digital art, graphic design, painting, sculpture, metals, photography, printmaking, and textiles.

Focalpoint: Personal Objects: Art from Eastern and Southern Africa
January 14–May 11, 2014 Raymond and Laura Wielgus Gallery of the Arts of Africa, the South Pacific, and the Americas, Focalpoint, third floor From jewelry and headdresses to household objects such as containers, headrests, and spoons, the art of eastern and southern Africa for the most part is intimately connected with the individual. Though these regions of Africa do not have the large numbers of masks and figural sculpture for which western and central Africa are known, the personal objects found there frequently reflect the deep cultural significances and attention to form and detail seen elsewhere on the continent. This installation has been organized to coincide with the A352/A552, Art of Eastern and Southern Africa, a course being taught during the spring 2014 semester in the Department of the History of Art.

New in the Galleries: ‘Max Beckmann’s Woodcuts’
Gallery of the Art of the Western World, Doris Steinmetz Kellett Endowed Gallery of Twentieth-Century Art, first floor
February 4–June 22, 2014
Although the German Expressionist artist Max Beckmann was a prolific graphic artist (producing 374 prints during his lifetime), he created fewer than 20 woodcuts. Most were produced during the 1920s, when Germany was experiencing a revival of interest in the medium. Seven prints from this period will be featured in this installation.

The Ryder presents: Oscar Short Film Festival

02:30 pm
Various venues: Fine Arts, Woodburn Hall, Bear's Place, Buskirk-Chumley, and the Back Door
http://theryder.com/event/oscar-short-film-festival-animation/

The Ryder presents a series of Oscar-nominated short films, to be shown at various Bloomington venues from February 21 until March 2.

Short films, like short stories, are often overlooked. The best short subjects have all of the power, scope and resonance of a feature-length film. We are screening the best of the best: 3 programs (one devoted to animation, one to live-action and the third to documentaries) featuring all 15 Oscar nominees. This is your chance to see the films before the Awards show

Each program will be shown on campus at Fine Arts, Woodburn Hall, as well as at Bear’s Place and the Back Door. At these venues, each program is $5 but for $10 you can buy an Oscar Pass admitting you to all three programs (on different nights, on different weekends). The programs are not rated but if they were, the Animation program would be rated PG – one of the animated films is a bit dark, but certainly no darker than the average superhero movie. It’s kid-friendly for most kids. And there are Saturday matinees for the Animation program.

See website for the full program of short films.
