Andreas “Andy” Stuefer, originally from Italy, came in touch with Hatha Yoga in 1999 at Clemente Cocchiola’s school of Yoga-Shiatsu in Siena/Italy.  He had his first Thai Yoga Massage experience with the Sunshine Network in Chang Rai/Thailand back in 2007 and was since then seen there regularly as a student, assistant and co-teacher. This truly life changing experience inspired him to do further studies to deepen his knowledge and understanding of this ancient healing art at various schools in Chang Mai and abroad. Along with Thai Massage he also came in touch with Qi Gong and Tai Chi and since then started training with Sifu Vigl in Italy. As a complementary part of these activities he soon recognized the important role of meditation, and found himself particularly interested in Vipassana meditation and doing retreats in Italy and Thailand. Since 2014 he is a qualified and acknowledged teaching member of the Sunshine Network, as well as of the Italian Federation of Traditional Thai Massage FITTM.

He is currently living with his family in Greece.
