"Thai Yoga is a wonderful gift which has truly improved my life! Thanks to David Wells for this carefully researched and meticulously detailed manual. As a massage therapist and yoga instructor the work has become an important daily practice for me and one that I share with my clients. The exercises help me to prepare my body for the day, identify limitations and restrictions in my body and balance my energy. The self-massage practice gives me a soothing way to treat those issues and heal myself. I use Thai Yoga to relieve tension headaches, reduce neck and shoulder tension and pain, improve a chronic back injury by mobilizing the low back and hips and releasing the accompanying muscles with self-massage. I also find the practice to reduce stress and increase energy. Most important Thai Yoga is really fun and feels good. I recommend this practice for everybody!" Jennifer Vanderburg, LMT

"Thai Yoga has done more to free me from pain than anything else Ive ever tried. For most of my adult life I endured crippling back, neck and joint pain due to several injuries. Now after a year and a half of daily practice I have virtually no pain and every muscle feels energized. I have gone from almost disabled to fully functional and can work and play like I did when I was young. I am self-sufficient and master of my physical health for the first time in my adult life. It has given me my life back!" James Galusha
