about us

The School of Thai Yoga Massage is one of the first schools for Thai Yoga Massage in Europe; it has over 25 years of experience and has an excellent reputation in the UK and internationally. Mishka and Adi completed both the Practitioners Course and the Advanced Practitioners Course – 210 hours of training in total. In addition to that they continue to learn through one to one sessions with Kira Balaskas and attend her group workshops wherever possible.

Having once worked for and studied with a big company, Adi knows from personal experience the discomfort, pain and bad posture that can be brought about by working at a desk: in daily life and especially in one’s professional life the body needs proper attention, help and care.
He decided to learn and work with this powerful and unique healing method after receiving his first full Thai Yoga Massage and experiencing the effects on his body and entire well being. His interest in a holistic approach has also brought him to study and work with expressive bodywork and movement and further techniques for posture correction, which has enhanced his personal approach to giving Thai Yoga Massage. He believes a conscious experience of one’s own body and its connection with emotional well being is an important part of the treatment.

Mishka Adams first came to Thai Yoga Massage in 2008 through her other profession, music. She met Kira Balaskas, head and founder of The School of Thai Yoga Massage in London, through a fellow musician. She had a massage with Kira and never looked back, booking straight onto the school’s Practitioners Course within the week and eventually practising massage alongside her performing.

Through Kira’s teaching and guidance she has been able to work with all kinds of people from all walks of life, each time able to adapt the massage to suit the receiver and their needs. She finds that music and massage complement each other beautifully – both are a way to give and receive simultaneously, and both are as much a gift for the practitioner as for the receiver.
