In this advanced Thai-Yoga-Massage course we deal intensively with the traditional Thai-stretches, which are more and more neglected in modern Thaimassage. The stretches are essential to relax and align the fascia, in which the energy lines, blood vessels, nerves and lymph vessels run. Through the repetitive stretching techniques we open the energy lines and make them permeable, we become more elastic, flexible, improve the blood circulation, improve the metabolic transport and the neural impulse conduction. 

This course is taught personally by Krishnataki. Originally from Greece, he has been traveling to Asia for 25 years, where he has intensively studied Thai massage and yoga. He was trained by the many ancient Thai massage masters in Thailand and yoga gurus in India. He is the owner of the Sunshine House in Evia, Greece.

In this Weekend advanced Dynamic Course we will focus on fluidity in transitions, bringing a direction into the flow and rhythm of our treatment and opening up to the playfulness and creativity within the Thai Massage.
 
Both of the mornings, we will start with warmup exercises and movements, which are opening up our body for the practice to come.
