A large part of the TULA Mission is to create a place where the community at large can come and learn.  
We envision workshops and classes of all shapes and sizes, covering a variety of topics and subject matters,
and geared toward the different levels of experience participants bring to the table.  
We want TULA to be your 'go to' for seeking the knowledge needed to bring Balance to your Body!  

Check back for our upcoming dates for these workshops as well as new ones each month!

Couples Massage Workshops
aka Best Date Night Ever! 

Have you ever wanted to give (and receive) massage from your partner in the comfort of your home?  Learning the art of massage is a wonderful way to connect with one another while working out the knots and stresses of work and day to day life.  SO--find a babysitter, take an evening off, and come out to TULA for a Date Night you won't soon forget!   


Thai Massage:    You and your partner will learn active and passive stretching, breath work and Thai massage techniques meant to open up and clear out your energetic pathways throughout your body.  It is a wonderful modality for increasing flexibility and movement in the joints (hence the nickname, 'lazy person's Yoga')!  This type of massage is traditionally performed fully clothed, without oils or lotions, on a comfortable mat on the floor.   Perfect for those with an active lifestyle and/or those looking for an easy, 'do anywhere' massage.  

Thai Massage I will focus on stretching and techniques done while in a seated and supine (lying on your back) position.

Thai Massage II will focus on stretching and techniques done while in a side-lying and prone (lying on your stomach) position.  

Schedule:  Private and Semi-private workshops scheduled by Appointment. 

                

​Workshop Details
  • ​Date night workshops are 2 hours each--a perfect and unique alternative to a movie night!  We do offer longer, more in-depth workshops for those looking for more than just an introduction to these modalities as well.  Contact TULA for more information!  
  • Please make sure and arrive 10-15 min PRIOR to the start time to fill out the waiver, use the restroom, and get situated. 
  • You need not have any massage experience to take these workshops.  They are open to all partners over the age of 18. 
  • Please note:we are happy to tailor a private partner massage workshop specifically for pregnant partners, just ask!
  • In addition to the strokes and techniques specific to each workshop, they will also cover comfortable body mechanics and professional draping.  
  • What to wear:  Come clothed in comfortable, loose-fitting clothing for all workshops.   We always seek to maintain a safe and respectful space, while keeping the energy of the workshop fun and informative.  
  • TULA provides all equipment,  all you need to provide is an open mind, a closed bottle of water, and possibly a little extra money for if you see something in our retail store you might like to take home with you, or if you would like to leave a tip for your instructor! 
  • All couples workshops are designed for already formed partners.  We can not, at this time, accommodate single persons.  
  • Each workshop is designed to be a stand-alone class which will provide a perfect jumping off point for connecting with your partner through intentional, positive touch.  We do however encourage you to take both Thai-Yoga I & Thai-Yoga II to complete the full-body experience!

We understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone's life.  In our desire to be fair to all clients and practitioners,

the following policies are honored:
