I am just going through the process of setting up this topic. Haven't watched module 1 yet only the introduction. It has taken me quite awhile to work out log ins, haven't been here since 2015 when I commenced Advanced Diploma of Ayurveda study. Completed in March this year and have decided to take up the offer to upgrade and redo the Thai Foot Massage course. Love learning from Shama. Happy to be back.
Happy to see you back, Lynne!
I don't know if I had that when you were last in the forum, but now I always post a reference to our certification checklist to make sure that it is all correctly organized, although you probably won't need it really:
So now you are an expert in Ayurveda - congratulations. That was a long program!

Thai Foot Massage Module 1.
The technique itself was fairly easy, having done a lot of courses with you Shama. The big challenge was the squatting position.
I have managed this a number of times and really hoping my knees make it through the course. My grandchildren are always open for massage so they all had experience of this moving from central point along the three lines in the soft tissue area of the foot radiating outward medial to big toe, centre then laterally to little toe. Adults enjoyed it and it was easier to put weight into the move. Love the flow of using body weight in variable pressure. Everyone enjoyed it
Thanks Shama! love being back here again. 6 years on and off now. Big break with Ayurveda Advanced Diploma though. Great to have that done and behind me.
You have every reason to be proud of yourself with your big new skill set! How is it going with the clients? Is it easy or difficult to get them to try Ayurvedic treatments?
If the squatting is too difficult for you, just skip this one and use one of the many other techniques. You don't have to use all techniques. We all have to do what we can, and there will be some things that we can't do - that's life. I am sure that in those 17 modules you will find plenty of techniques which you can use.
