Healing Arts Training  

 

The Muay Thai Sangha Training Program has included a variety of Healing methods to improve our fighting arts training from the inner core. We have selected four specific subjects to reinforce the weakness of the hard external fighting methods. This will help us to have a better understanding in how to use force and in how to deal with pressure in a completely different level.

Our subjects are matched with equanimity to achieve an optimum balance within the training and within our lives.  

This kind of training is almost lost within the fighting arts and we consider that is extremely important if we want to develop our skills further. 

 

SANGAM MECHANICS

Sangam literally means the confluence of two rivers. The training emphasizes sweeps, locks and throws which are all related to follow or disrupt the opponents balance. The Sangam training will allow us to absorb or deflect the opponent's force according to the Element that we used. 

The Sangam Method holds a defensive strategy extracted from the interaction within the Five Elements (Earth, Water, Wind, Fire and Ether). The training method was created from Kru Pedro Solana and is based in the Fighting Arts curriculum.  

 

WARRIOR YOGA

Within the Healing Arts program, we have included certain Warrior Yoga Postures (asanas) based on the fighting principles to improve our gravity, flexibility and balance. All the Asanas have their origin in Vedic martial arts and the routines can be practiced with or without weapons for self-defense or self-healing purposes. Warrior Yoga Asanas are the second main aspect under our Healing Program.

 

PRANAYAMA MARTIAL BREATHING

The Breathing Exercises practiced in the Muay Thai Sangha camp are related to yogic disciplines with origins in ancient India. "Prana" is the vital energy in the body which is responsible for our life force, and "ayama" means control. So Pranayama is "Control of the Breath"

Our training uses different Martial Breathing patterns based in extending or drawing out the breath. This practice follows the Five Elements theory.

If we want to reach a higher peak of performance we must apply correctly these breathing patterns. 

Pranayama breathing exercises are the third main aspect in our Healing Training.

 

MEDITATION 

The term meditation refers to a form of practice where an individual trains the mind to observe what is in the present moment.  There are many different meditation exercises which can lead us into different results.

In the Muay thai Sangha Camp, meditation training is separated into seven steps, each one guiding us to experience a different aspect within ourselves.

When we practice often, meditation can induce us into an state of higher conexion between our movements, breath and mind.

The union of the four principles above will create an efficient way of training creating more awareness and clarity in our daily practices.
