Thai Yoga Massage Workshops with Krishnataki in Cologne
5th – 6th December 2022
Introducion to Savasana: 5/21, 15:00 – 18:00
Our hands are a powerful tool. Touch is a powerful tool when used correctly and with awareness. During this workshop, we will address what it means to use Mindful Touch and understand the polarities of Yin and Yang in massage by constantly moving from static techniques to dynamic flow and by introducing the basic principles of Thai Massage. This will give us the basics and yet allow us the possibility to have a deep and enriching experience of this ancient technique, by restoring our centre and taking care of the CORE.
Nourishing the Yin: 6/12, 15:00 – 18:00
During this session, we will focus on freeing the spine and restoring energy in our ‘hara’ – our energetic center, dealing with issues of chronic lower back pain, kidney deficiency and digestive complaints. When we go deep into the core, we are able to unravel stored tension and knots, which often leave us feeling bloated, empty or depleted in order to create space for change.
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.
The workshops will take place at Lord Vishnu’s Couch Yoga Studio, in Cologne.
