24 - 31 July, 2024 in Vienna


The basic Nuad Thai Massage training with Itzhak is transformative experience. A deep evolution on the way we move, interact, communicate and specially… the way we touch.
Traditional Thai yoga bodywork is called Nuad in Thailand and means „healing touch„.

According to Ayurvedic science, there is an extensive network of energy lines running throughout the body. It is through the massaging and stretching of this network of energy lines that Thai Yoga Massage or Nuad releases tension. By allowing energy to flow more freely, the massage works to restore balance and create a deep state of relaxation and well-being for both the client and practitioner.

We will explore the antient tradition of Nuad how is has been taught for centuries in the North of Thailand. The combination of static and dynamic techiques creates a sacred dance.

The main ingredients of this 8 day program will be Meditation, Hatha Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and of course lots of Thai Yoga Massage and Love.
