Thai Yoga Massage

A Thai Massage course is always a spiritual experience that combines meditation, yoga and the practice of loving-kindness. A communion between two human beings, a co-created dance of mindful touch and presence. The way we move, the way we breathe, the way we contact and connect, the way we hold space and allow healing to happen… this is the ancient art of Thai Yoga Massage.

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is based on a crystal clear vision of Anatomy, Physiology and body mechanics… and aims to bring back vitality and mobility in the areas where it is most needed. Through our ability to listen and touch our patient with softness and precision, tapping into our unlimited curiosity, we can help restore balance and create a platform where healing can unfold.

We are excited and enthusiastic to share effective osteopathic methods such as Reciprocal Tension, Functional Exaggeration, Hoover, Inhibition, Recoil,
Rebound, Pumping, GOT, etc… We will also provide a first introduction to the Cranial Field (Cranio-Sacral therapy) and osteopathic treatment of the organs (kidneys, mesentery, liver, spleen, heart… )

About Pau

A family trip to India, back in 2005, started it all. I dropped my career as a radio sports journalist and together with my brother Wari and my sister Mireia launched the Omshanti Yoga Studio (2006) and, later on, the Barcelona Yoga Conference (2011).

The path has been filled with Yoga, AcroYoga and soon enough Thai Massage showed up and stole my heart. For the last decade I have traveled around the globe sharing this art, inspired by teachers of the Sunshine Network. Laurino Bertelli, and his dedication to Vipassana meditation, the visionary OsteoThai founders David Lutt & Arno L’Hermitte, and the Sangha spirit, generosity and joy from Takis and Kerys at the Sunshine House Greece.

After graduating from a 5-year Osteopathy program at SICO (Switzerland), under the mentorship of Phillipe Druelle, the mission is crystal clear… to create a global platform, the Thai Massage Academy, and dive deep into this magical fusion between Thai Yoga Massage and Osteopathy.
