All About the Side Position with Krishnataki in Linz, Austria
7th – 10th December 2023
The SIDE POSITION is one of the most traditional positions we can find in Thai massage. It is the ultimate position in which we can easily hold a two-hour massage session.
This course is mainly about the therapeutic applications in the lateral position – how to explore and master it.
There are many therapeutic applications with amazing results, especially for people suffering from severe lower back, neck and shoulder pain.
It is also a very nice position in which we can support and accompany elderly people.
In addition, we will spend a whole day on the topic of “pregnancy” – a topic that is generally given far too little attention! The lateral position is excellent for the treatment of pregnant women and offers us the possibility to support and, above all, to relieve.
In this module we will also explore the energy lines and ZEN meridians of traditional Thai massage and learn how to create precision and stillness with the elbows, feet, hands and knees.
This course will be held in English.
Krishnataki, originally from Greece, has been teaching Thai Yoga massage, yoga and qi gong since 1998 having lived and studied in Thailand and India. His first gateway to the East was through the inspirational teachings of Tai Chi master Tew Bunnag which led him down the path in search of his true spiritual essence.
He is now a senior massage teacher of the Sunshine Network, and has trained with Thai massage masters Pichet Boonthume, Chayuth Priyasith and Asokananda and has a Sivananda Yoga background. He is passionate about organic farming, Chinese medicine, cooking and nutrition and incorporates aspects of yoga, meditation and Qi Gong into all his courses.
His base is at Sunshine House, where he leads a variety of retreats aimed at igniting the spiritual, healing flame that lies dormant in each and every one of us, however he still spends time travelling abroad to teach and also study, where possible. He is renown for his unique, fun-loving and passionate way of teaching as well as his generous spirit, hot hands and delicious home-made recipes. When he is not teaching, he is with his three beautiful children or soaking in hot spring waters.
