About Blue Garden
“With my teachings the goal is to inspire practitioners and students (which we all are) to go beyond so called ‘standard’ (Thai) Massage. Thai massage is so much more then just a sequence, but a dance between client and practitioner in which out of intuition, fluidity, creativity and love we allow our clients to reconnect to body and spirit”
Blue Garden is founded by Bow and Remco
Blue Garden is an unique garden studio built from natural materials, surrounded by trees and plant. In the middle of our studio we have a beautiful tree, which goes trough our roof .
Our studio is situated in the heart of Chiang Mai’s old city center, next to one of the oldest temple of Chiang Mai, Wat Pha Kaaw, some times the prayers of the temple are coming in our studio.
Remco is teaching Thai Massage, body work, Addominal Chi Massage (Chi Nei Tsang) and Yoga for more then a decade. Over the years he developed a style where body mechanisms, movement, awareness and a listening/mindful touch plays a center role. In all his teaching he tries to inspire his students to be more fluid, more intuitive, creative and to improve their quality of touch. Over the years he helped many students to become better and more successful therapist and yoga practitioners.
His own Journey started 20 years ago when, after a career in advertising, he moved to Asia (Nepal, India, Thailand) and emerged himself in Buddhism, Yoga and Massage. His first massage training, 20 years ago, was zen shiatsu, which incorporates a lot of movement and rocking. After that he intensively studied Thai Massage. Although he studied with many teachers his main inspiration was and is Master Pichette.
Over the years Remco started to bring more and more movement and rocking in his massage also inspired by other practitioners. He developed a very fluid, intuitive and free flowing style which resonates with lot of students and clients. A style which is dynamic, fun and joyous.
He practices yoga for more then 20 years and did a great variation of yoga training from Shivananda to Vinyasa. Although he is not limited to any lineage in all his teaching he places a lot of attention to right body mechanism, body awareness and mindfulness. At the moment his main inspirations are Sadie Nardine and Dylan Werner.
Remco is founder (together with Bow) and the main teacher at Blue Garden, a yoga and massage training center in Chiang Mai Thailand, which over the course of almost 10 years is an well established name and well known for the high quality of teaching. At the moment this is where Remco is mainly teaching from. He is also co-founder of another School (Namo Yoga), but he left this school around 8 years ago
Remco guided many students both beginners and massage therapist (with many years of experience) to become good (Thai) Massage Therapist, Chi Nei Tsang practioners and received incredible feedback from his students. In his experience massage, yoga and meditation are integrating beautifully together; practicing one deepens the knowledge of the other and vice versa.
He would love to teach you.
