WHAT IS THAI MASSAGE?
Thai Massage is an ancient healing art based on the principles of yoga philosophy. The practitioner uses the physical body as a tool to access the subtle bodies, in order to bring physical, mental and spiritual healing and balance. Blockages can be released and the energy restored to its natural flow by the application of rhythmic pressure on energy lines throughout the entire body, the stretching of muscles inspired by yoga-asanas and the mobilization of the main joints. Because this massage is working on the different body layers the release works on an emotional, energetic and physical level. Thai Yoga Massage could be seen as a moving meditation. When performed with awareness, equanimity and loving kindness, practicing Thai Massage trains the body, the mind and the heart. It becomes a mutual meditation and a powerful energetic exchange with many benefits for both giver and receiver.
WHO IS THE COURSE FOR?
• Anybody wishing to learn how to work with the body and discover new and deeper ways of touching and relating
• Yoga students & teachers, physiotherapists, shiatsu therapists, osteopaths, massage therapists (…) who want to broaden their skills and deepen their existing practice
• Or in other words, the course is open to all, with an openness and affinity to give and receive on a physical, mental and spiritual level.
• Since Thai Yoga Massage is done on massage mats on the ground, a basic physical ability to spend time on the ground is the only physical requirement for participation.
Born in Budapest, Hungary, 1978. At the age of 23 Zoltan went to India to study hindi and sitar. India was the place where he started to feel humanity, even as people around were poor and had no money; just a handful of food to eat - they showed that we can listen to each other, and take care of each other, and that there is lot to share even if we do not have anything in the material world… Later he came across yoga and started to practice intensively with two teachers in Shivananda ashram, Rishikesh. This brought about a big change physically, mentally and spiritually. This change caused a recognition to work with the energy system of yoga…He did not know how or what - but started to feel that he wants to help other beings as the system was helping and opening him as well. After two years he returned to Budapest and started his study as a medical massage therapist. Duringthis time he met his first Thai Yoga Massage teacher, who planted “a good spirit” within his heart and trained him in the basic principles: not only Thai Yoga Massage, but concentration meditation and Vipassana. In 2006, Zoltan started to study with other teachers and became an assistant. In this way he was refining his techniques and learning the way of teaching and sharing during many, many years. In 2008 came his first trip to Thailand, where he continued to assist and study more with different teachers and schools. During this period he started to give treatments and attended many Vipassana retreats. Since 2014 he is a fully authorized teacher of the Sunshine Network and teaching Thai Yoga Massage workshops and courses all around the globe. Zoltan appreciates a lot to have had the chance to study with the two founders of Osteothai (a mixture of Thai Massage and Osteopathy) which left a big imprint in his way of treating and inspired him to finally start studying Osteopathy in Switzerland (SICO - swiss international school of osteopathy) where he lives, treats and teaches nowadays. 2018 he received the certificate for Craniosacral Therapy.
2021 he completed his 5 years studies in Osteopathy at SICO (Swiss International College of Osteopathy)
