After about 30 years of running with minimal stretching, my hips and calves were so tight that it was causing issues throughout my lower body. After only a few Thai Massage sessions with Kandy, I could already feel the tangible benefits. Through applying pressure and stretching, she has been able to loosen muscles that have been tight for years. I am hooked! In addition, Kandy is a delight to be with and has a positive, inspirational approach to life that adds to the overall experience.
Why Thai Yoga Stretch?
Stress and pain relief
Resistance to injury
Improved range of motion
Release of lactic acid and other toxins from areas of accumulation
Toning of internal organs
More energy and reduced stagnation
This one hour assisted stretch is sometimes referred to as “lazy man’s yoga”, because the therapist is supporting the client in stretches that are yoga poses. The client will experience benefits from poses that would be difficult to achieve unassisted, because it can take years to develop the required strength, balance and flexibility. The massage is done on a mat, in a warm room with aromatherapy to enhance the meditative experience.

Custom Training Plans for Runners & Triathletes
We design customized programs for any event from a 5k distance race or sprint triathlon to a marathon or an Ironman distance triathlon. We’ll take the number of months before the race and break it down into weeks, and the appropriate number of days per week. Each day will be broken down into segments of specific mileage, pace or drills, all depending on your current fitness level, time you have to train, and of course the type of event you’re preparing for.
Benefits of a Custom Training Plan
You won’t waste time and energy by doing pointless miles.
Your program is scheduled around your work and family life.
Your training sessions are structured based on your current fitness level.
Every workout will be effective and efficient.
In 2007 I ran the Chicago Marathon. Conditions were horrible and I was disappointed with my time. I re-ran the race in 2009. My goal was to break the 4 hour mark. Based upon my skill level, this was a somewhat aggressive goal. Marcin prepared a detailed training schedule to help me achieve my goal. It wasn’t easy – but the humorous comments Marcin made in my log book were amusing. The most important point is that I followed 90% of his instructions and finished the race in 3:59:11. This was a huge accomplishment for me at age 48! Marcin was also great about tailoring the workout schedule to fit within my busy life. Peter, who is my personal trainer at Equilibrium, was indispensable in helping me follow through on the training program by assisting me with strength training, core training and general fitness advice.
I recently registered for the half ironman taking place in Racine, Wisconsin in July. Marcin once again prepared a detailed training program for me.
