SomaVeda® Nuat Boran Northern Style Thai Yoga
The prerequisite for attendance and certification in this class, is the SomaVeda® Level One: Fundamentals of Thai Yoga Therapy and the Level Two “SomaVeda® Ayurvedic Thai Massage“. Level 3 SomaVeda® Nuat Boran/Northern Style Thai Yoga continues the work begun in SomaVeda® Level One and Two. Level 3 explores in detail the Chinese and Hill tribe influence on hands on healing with the eight basic flows of the SomaVeda® Northern method. These flows although similar to those of the ITM and Old medicine Hospital Traditions are taught with a manner, context, and supplemental information unique to the SomaVeda® program. This course is an Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy training program and is required for the SomaVeda® Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor certification offered at SCNM in Brooksville, FL.
In this course understanding of the Energetic Anatomy and Physiology, Ten principle Sen (Nadis), and Chakras is deepened. Basic Oriental and Western anatomy and physiology as it applies to the SomaVeda® Nuad Boran (Chiang Mai style) is introduced at this time. The role of the breath in partnership within the therapeutic encounter is discussed and practiced more intently. The course is predominately hands on, with an introduction to the underlying philosophy and theory of energy. The use of Puja or intentional affirmations and Mantra in the healing process is emphasized. This course originates from the Shivago lineage and we will learn and practice the Om Namo Mantra every day. This class is “hands on” and quite intensive, it is designed to take your SomaVeda® Thai Yoga therapy practice to a higher level.
The Northern style is the most Yang variation of the traditional SomaVeda® Thai Yoga healing methods. This course catalogs more than two times the number of individual techniques as found in SomaVeda® Level Two, that’s over 100 different Asana (Therapeutic postures.) The course includes SomaVeda® Thai reflexology treatment for the Hands and Feet, the Feet and Leg lines, Supine position, Side Lying Position, Prone Position, Leg Stretching and Abdominal as well as the famous SomaVeda® Seated position treatment methods and flows. During this seven day intensive there is additional practice of the meditative and spiritual aspects of training ie: Vipassana (Insight Meditation) and Puja. This course completes the students basic compliment of working tools. Classes may begin with daily SomaVeda® Hatha Yoga and or SomaVeda® Reishi Yoga.

We believe in giving credit where credit is due! Our version of the Northern or “Lanna” style Traditional Thai Massage: Nuad Boran was given to Aachan Anthony B. James of the SomaVeda® College of Natural Medicine by the late Grand Master of the Old Medicine Hospital in Chaingmai in the early 90’s. Aachan Sintorn Chaichagun gave Dr. James the original request to “Take This work to American” and the west. He took it to heart and has been strictly teaching and sharing what he taught him from that time to now. We received this training at the SCNM/ Thai Yoga Center and now offer it here at NAICH/ Humiovi Thai Yoga Institute with the blessing of Aachan James.
