Natasha de Grunwald is the founder and lead educator at the London Institute of Thai Yoga Massage (LITYM). She has been a pioneer of Thai massage in the UK since opening the doors to her busy private practice in 1991.
LITYM opened in 2005. Natasha had a clear vision to develop a training programme that would qualify students to an excellent standard of professionalism whilst honouring an ancient lineage and Thai tradition. There are now many LITYM graduates practising Traditional Thai Massage and bodywork around the globe and who return for ongoing studies with Natasha.
Natasha is a wellbeing facilitator and mentor with a strong passion for Thai Yoga Massage. She has been researching and studying Thai Medicine for almost 30 years. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge that she generously shares. She has clinics in both London and Brighton working with clients on a 1-1 basis, looking at the causative factors that are holding them back.
Dissection plays a big part in Natasha’s ongoing studies. She is passionate about understanding the real anatomical and functional aspects of the body so that she is able to share this knowledge with her students. This helps them visualise what they are touching beneath the layers of the skin for a tangible connection with the body through Thai massage.
Natasha’s unique teaching style communicates her passion and is infectious. She creates courses and workshops designed to inspire students and develop a greater connection to themselves so they can become successful, both professionally and personally. She offers ongoing support to all her students and maintains close relationships with them. LITYM offers a compassionate and heart-centred training approach with strong healing arts ethics.
