Claire Thompson – Guided Partner Massage and Meditation

Release your festival fatigue and connect with others as you learn a simple but effective massage sequence done through the clothing. Bring a friend or pair up with a new friend when you arrive! While you work, you will be guided in breath and body mechanics, while also being mindful of the the yogic principles of gratitude and interconnectedness that naturally arise while trading massages.

Claire Thompson travels internationally as a teacher of yoga and meditation, having presented workshops (including the popular Yoga of Bass sessions with DJ/ Music producers such as FreQ Nasty and Rhythmstar) at music and yoga festivals, spiritual retreats, and yoga and Buddhist centers in the US, UK, Australia, Thailand and Canada. Her training, under the guidance of Lama Sumati Marut, includes the Yoga Studies Institute 200 hour yoga philosophy program and the 36-course program of Tibetan Buddhist Studies offered by the Asian Classics Institute. She has practiced massage therapy for the last 16 years, training in Chicago and New York. Her massage workshops teach physical bodywork simply and clearly while guiding the mind to notice the yogic principles of gratitude, mindfulness, and interconnectedness that naturally arise while exchanging healing.
