I just began studying the videos and found a practice partner I have worked with twice now. I understood the fundamentals of the first two videos as I had 26 hours of Thai introduction at my massage therapy school. I basically did the same thing each time with my practice partner. (We meet once a week for just over an hour)

Started with the Chi Machine, then the rolling of of the hips with hands positioned at the feet using the three points.Thumb circles and finger circles with pulls aside each ankle. It took a bit to get the feel for getting the hips to move in the Chi Machine. But with communication with my partner, I was able to produce a relaxing result! 

I practiced several times moving my leg under her leg / knee to further work the feet. She reported the feet work was very relaxing. She also reported that she could feel then compression pull and traction rotation of the hip all the way past the hip and into the low back which was surprising (pleasantly) for both of us.

I ended my two practice sessions with becoming comfortable with using my foot to hold her leg in position for some basic compression and rocking.

We have to skip next week, but I'll be making notes and watching the videos!

Hi Chrissy,

Welcome to the course and our forum! That's good that you already have a foundation in Thai Massage as this will make it easier for you to work with the material. You won't encounter many surprises and won't struggle with the positions. That puts you in a good position to get a head start with the program! Smile

Your profile bio sounds impressive!
