Advanced Thai Massage workshop, Internal Touch with Yiannis & Helen
Internal Touch with Yiannis Katsanas and Helen Say
Advanced Thai Massage weekend at the Yogahaus, Ettlingen.
This workshop is specifically targeting the belly, organs & working from the inside out. Often when working the body whilst giving a Thai massage we forget to touch the belly. There might be fear or a justified concern, as we are dealing with a fragile and very personal area. Αs all the energy lines of the body are related to an internal organs, it is proposed to learn ways of working directly on them when needed.
The internal organs are usually mirroring our mental and psychic state. Beyond their physiological function, they also undertake an emotional depiction. All we experience is filtered through the organs of the abdomen. From daily stress, general pressure or daily problems, unresolved emotional situations, and even traumatic situations leave their fingerprint.
By learning to approach and work the belly, we develop qualities of stability, compassion, observation, patience, and acceptance, as well as technical excellence, simplicity and accuracy in our hands and our touch.
We will work with exercises of a general approach that center with the rest of the body, as well as exercises that specifically aim at organs and their functions.
We will look at how we manage blockages, how we distribute time to treatment, how other systems are being affected (hormonal, lymphatic, circulatory ..), increasing the quality of our massage and our efficacy.
There will be demonstrations and practice, & we will apply new techniques in our massage practice, at the same time, we will work holistically, with the intuition and the connection that we always find in Thai yoga massage.

Inspired by the teachings of Chayuth Priyasith and passed on passionately through the teachings of our beloved teachers Krishnataki and David Lutt.
The personal path in therapy of Yiannis Katsanas started in the sunshine house in the summer of 2008, and he had the opportunity to follow almost every course of Thai yoga massage since then.
He started from 2010 assisting in the Thai massage retreats, and he does constantly until now, mainly for his beloved teachers Takis Oikonomou and David Lutt.
He is an Osteo Thai expert, one of the few that have complete the full training of a very precise and effective therapy, that has influenced his view.
Mindfull touch for him is a way of communion and inner expression. His creativity and at the same time his precision on the massage, in combination with his calmness and humbleness, made him a very appreciated therapist in the Sunshine House community.
He is also influenced by the study of Cranio sacral and he is a recognized reflexologist, and a Lomi Lomi practitioner.
Outdoor yoga goes indoors!!
As Autumn is really upon us & the days are cooler & wet, I will offer the Thursday evening 6-7pm yoga class & the Sunday morning 10-11.15am class indoors.
Location = Hoffstrasse 6, Karlsruhe. Ring doorbell for Manishas place.
A day of Dynamic Thai massage. The focus for the day will be on the art of touch rather than learning lots of new dynamic techniques. It will be an opportunity for those who have some experience with dynamic thai massage to focus on touch, review what you have learnt before and integrate a few new techniques.
Everybody can learn techniques however to understand how to slow down & deeply touch another person takes a different state of awareness & presence. This will be our day together to touch from our heart rather than our head!
10-5pm with 1 hour lunch break. Soup to share will be offered.
Location = Yogahaus, Ettlingen
Investment = €90
