Reusi Datton Books, eBooks, and DVDs

There are very few (hardcover) books, eBooks, video workshops or DVDs published with information about Reusi Dat Ton or with teachings of the various exercises and sequences. Anyway, not in non-Thai languages. And honestly, even in the Thai language there’s actually very little around.

Of course, doing and learning Reusi Datton is a very practical enterprise, but still. When we look at, for instance, Indian Yoga we find numerous books, online videos, and DVDs — an oversaturated market.

Thai Traditional Yoga or Reusi Datton remains a relatively unknown and scarcely practiced Thai Healing Arts Modality, even in Thailand. There are various causes to it, not in the least because it’s very often confused with Thai Yoga Massage i.e. Thai Massage.

Another cause is that there’s very little comprehensively documented, and moreover, there are only a handful of teachers in Thailand offering complete training programs.

As I’m a huge fan of Reusi Datton I of course regret this, but here on our website we do our utmost best to step-by-step fill in the gap. At any rate, we’ve tried to find all books, video workshops and DVDs currently published about Reusi Datton in other languages than Thai. Below you’ll find the list.
