LEWISTON – Central Maine Medical Center will offer another Thai Yoga Bodywork workshop on Friday, April 21.

Marcy Covey, a certified Thai Yoga Bodywork practitioner, will introduce participants to a form of yoga that incorporates a type of massage performed on a floor mat. The session will focus on gentle massage techniques for the feet, back, neck and head.

“Thai Yoga Bodywork blends stimulation of the energy lines of the body with stretching and manipulation of taut muscles. It provides wonderful benefits for both the receiver and the practitioner, restoring a sense of balance and well-being, balancing energy lines in the body, increasing flexibility and promoting relaxation and rejuvenation,” said Covey.

“Yoga helps us to be more balanced, flexible and peaceful in ourselves,” she added. “It helps to alleviate headaches, panic, depression and tight muscles. It also helps us to have the wisdom to make good choices for our lives.”

Covey is an experienced health and wellness educator. She holds a variety of health and wellness certifications.

People wishing to attend the workshop are encouraged to bring a partner.Attendees should also bring a warm blanket and a yoga mat, if they have one, wear comfortable clothing, and be prepared to be on the mat on the floor for the duration of the class.

The workshop will be offered from 6 to 8 p.m. at the CMMC Health and Wellness Center, located on the lower level of the 12 High Street Medical Office Building.

Space is limited. A modest fee will be charged. For more information or to register, call 795-2473.
