Online Massage Classes

Thai-vedic massage & Hair by Gerry have had to close during the Lockdown but that doesn't mean we can't help you stay active and healthy during this difficult time for all of us.

Much as I hate having my photo taken, (much less being on video!) I have a tripod and a head-cam strap that I've used for massage training videos, so lets give it a go!

Join us at the following dates and times using the Zoom app* on your phone, tablet or laptop, using this link


Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays 3-4pm. Starting with Indian Head Massage this Thursday 26th March

I will alternate between Indian Head Massage & Thai yoga Massage, as both can be done fully clothed and without oil.

What you'll need:

>> A partner, relative or housemate (dont drag anyone in from the street!) who is willing to give as well as receive a massage. You'll give a massage for 30 minutes then receive for 30 minutes, under my instruction.

>> For Indian Head Massage (Thursdays): a kitchen or folding chair placed in a space big enough for you to walk around it.

>> For Thai Yoga Massage (Tuesdays & Saturdays): a yoga mat, duvet or futon placed on a floor space with room above & below the receivers head & feet when lying down & space for them to stretch their arms out to the side. Plus a pillow for their head.

I'm offering these as free classes for now as I know many of us are on reduced incomes (in our case reduced to nothing!) but if you are still receiving a wage or have other funds please do make a 5 donation for each class via bank transfer to Account number 03076141/ Sort code 08-90-66

* If you dont already have the Zoom app the link above will prompt you to download it.Try to do this before the class to save time.

Online Yoga & Qi Gong classes

There are lots of online yoga classes doing the rounds, but why not support some local yoga teachers - many of whom are also self employed and having to find new ways to earn a living. These are the teachers I've visited and know to be good at what they do:

Maha Rudra Yoga - Rabin, the teacher who runs classes in the Hindu Temple in Honor Oak, has moved his classes onto Google Meet, which is like Zoom. The link will prompt you to download it if you dont have it. The classes are free so simply join the class 6pm Sundays via this link [meet.google.com]

ESPH - the gym on Lordship Lane in east Dulwich, that I go to (normally) is posting free daily live Yoga and Pilates classes on its instagram page [instagram.com] which stay there for 24 hours. Best viewed from your phone, just click on the black logo at the top to view the videos.

George Monkhouse - Peckham Rye based Acupuncturist and Qi Gong Teacher is running Qi Gong classes at 10am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and asks for a donation of 5 per session to join, or 12 for the week, via Paypal to george@georgemonkhouse.com. George is using Zoom and his link is [us04web.zoom.us]

Stay safe (but stay active!)
