Niss Bach

About The Teacher

Niss has an extensive background in body awareness disciplines.  Starting to dance at 8 years old, and then working as a dancer at 16. At 15 he got exposed to Yoga by one of his modern dance teachers and to massage through a dance improv teacher his fascination with the Healing Arts began. Later suffering from knee issues, he was sent to a physical therapist and was amazed how quickly his knees improved while following the exercise regimen. That was it a healer was awakened. Always willing to lend a helping hand to his suffering dancing colleagues and later his circus colleagues. In circus there are every kind of orthopedic injury you can think of.  That is where the practice came in!

On his travels, he studied with great teachers such as Mama Lek and her son Jack Chaya, Krishna Takis Kaline Alayna Kelly, Arno Lhermitte Itzhak Helman Sebastian Bruno, to name some. A couple of original Thai masters like Ajan Pichet and Sinchai (blind master). Even though Niss prefers the approach of the student guru relationship he has gone to see what the more official schools have to offer, studying Acupressure in Berkeley and doing the GCT program at TMC, Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai.

In 2011 Niss suffered from a series of injuries that ended his circus career, “looking back it was a clear way to make me change my focus to the healing arts, first take care of my self and then of others”.  Since then he has been teaching Thai Massage and has helped to co create the amazing Yoga Forest transformation retreat center in Guatemala. Although his main focus in Thai Yoga Massage, Niss loves to infuse all sorts of energies to his training and retreats, with dance and fun clowning dynamics there is always ways to express and play while we study. Astrology and nature is another passion of Niss’. In his training he teaches us how the zodiac works and how to begin to interpret our own chart.  His unique Yoga classes infuse celestial knowledge into the body and mind. Thus following the Vedic principles, first take care of the body with Ayurveda (Thai Massage), then clear the mind with Yoga, and then with Astrology, you can follow your soul’s path!

“Living in nature it is easy to follow the cycles of the moon which is our biggest guide here on earth, and as she passes through the zodiac signs her influence affects us each one differently.” Nissan Auerbach
