About KAori Endo
Kaori was born in Yokohama, Japan. Ever since she was little she was troubled with skin diseases. She finally found that traditional Thai Yoga massage is the most suited for her health. Over 20 years and more than 3000 training hours with the greatest Masters later she became a powerful Master herself sharing her gifts with the world.
Master Chaiyuth was also one of the masters of Asokananda, who was the best Western researcher of Thai Yoga massage in the 20th century.
Asokananda taught Thai Yoga Massage to many students across the world and created the Sunshine Network. Before he passed away, Asokananda offered a special masters course. Few masters should emerge from his course, Kaori was the one and only
Kaori was the last student of Master Chaiyuth Priyasith. Master Chaiyuth influenced new waves of Thai massage which were developed by Westerns after his transformation as Ostheothai, Dynamic, Chinestsang mixed up with other traditions.
Master Chaiyuth is widely recognized as one of the few great Masters of Thai massage of the 20th century
