‍‍‍‍‍‍Thai Yoga Massage

In the summer of 2016 four monkeys made a trip to study with Krishnataki at Sunshine House in Greece. He has a particular interpretation and understanding of the Thai Yoga Massage practice that fits very well alongside our philosophies here regarding ones yoga practice. Many of the thai massage therapists around the world seem to work on a "no pain - no gain" principle which just doesn't make sense to us. Takis believes in a softer deeper more mindful touch, in listening to the body and allowing both the receiver and the giver to release and to let go. He refers to it as a Sacred Dance for this is a mutually beneficial practice with the giver being totally present, moving their own body with comfort ease and grace to facilitate the opening of another. The receiver may look complet‍‍‍ely passive but letting go is a skill that takes practice and requires one to be open in heart, mind and body. This is the joining of two for the greater good of all. Moving the two bodies promotes general health and wellbeing for both giver and receiver. On the preventive side, it activates the free flow of Prana (your life force or energy) and improves fluid circulation, digestion, breathing capacity, body posture, flexibility, as well as releasing nervous tension.On the therapeutic side, it can cure a large number of pathologies such as lower back pain, headaches, digestive problems, stress, insomnia, nervous imbalance, neck and shoulder muscular tightness…to name just a few…
