Dynamic Thai Massage with Krishnataki


Krishnataki, (AKA, Takis) originally from Greece, has been teaching Thai Yoga Massage, Yoga, and Qi Gong since 1998, having lived and studied in Thailand and India. He is a Senior Massage Teacher of the Sunshine Network, having trained with Thai Massage masters Pichet Boonthume, Chayuth Priyasith, and Asokananda.

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; however, he often travels abroad to teach and study. He is renowned for his unique, spontaneous and passionate way of teaching as well as his generous spirit and open heart. When he is not teaching, he is with his three beautiful children or soaking in hot spring waters.

“This is a unique first-time event to have Takis share his wellspring of knowledge and light with us.  When I first met Takis, we had an immediate connection and after one of his famous contagious smiles greeted me in the Sunshine House in Greece. I felt at home, and after working with him both as an assistant and student over the summer, I saw his mastery of the sacred dance as a continuous dance, creating liberation through rocking movements to complete listening to the stillness. I have to say it was a celebratory experience to witness. I will be there for this training as his assistant and looking forward to building a strong Sanghi of bodyworkers with you.”
