Here you can find information on courses taught by Andrea Baglioni, senior teacher of The Sunshine Network.

I dedicate "" to Asokananda, my teacher and dearest friend who prematurely passed away in June 2005

Asokananda has been the most important source of knowledge, the most important guide and inspiration for my Thai Massage and Vipassana meditation development. He was, and still is, a living example of Loving kindness and Compassion for myself and for anyone who has crossed his path.

Learn Thai Yoga Massage with Andrea

When I arrived in Chiang Mai in January 1992, Thai massage was not as popular as it is now days and the choices, on where to learn this ancient healing art, where restricted to few schools and some old masters. Some teachers also called it ”Thai Yoga Massage” or “yoga for lazy people”, due to the connection of one of its roots, to the Yoga and Ayurvedic Philosophy. Having had practiced yoga for some years, I was drowned to those teachers. After studying at The Old Medicine Hospital in Chiang Mai, I met Asokananda, possibly the first teacher who researched into those origins.
