Agenda

Autum Basic Thai Massage in Greece with Pau Castellsagué

Thai20th - 31st October 2017
Sunshine House in Evia, Greece
Pau Castellsagué

Thai Yoga Massage is transformative experience. A deep revolution on the way we move, interact, communicate and specially… the way we touch. The main ingredients of this 12 day program will be Vipassana Meditation, Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, AcroYoga and of course lots of Thai Yoga Massage.

The structure and method of this course was created by Asokananda, the first Westerner to write about Thai Massage in English. Asoka’s dedication, study and curiosity has been of great importance for the Northern Style of Thai Massage to expand limitlesly through the globe. His main teachers, Chayuth and Pischest, are the two Thai masters behind everything we will share in this class. Today, Pichest is still teaching his unique and precise Static style with a strong emphasis on the principles of touch, body position and the use of gravity. Chayuth’s Dynamic approach, based on releasing tension through movement, rocking techinques and harmonic waves, is the perfect complement to achieve relaxation, integration and flow. The combination of these two pillars of the Northern Style of Thai Massage offers a holistic experience, a co-created Sacred Dance, a journey of mindfulness, balancing energy physically and emotionally with the ultimate goal of opening the heart for both giver and receiver.

 

The facilitator
Pau started his spiritual journey in 2005 with his first trip to India that became a life-changing experience. He quit his job and his career as a journalist to study Yoga and, together with his brother Wari and his sister Mireia, they created the Omshanti Yoga Studio in the outside hills of Barcelona. Yoga was the real inner revolution... AcroYoga and Thai Massage came along as a natural harmonic step. AcroYoga has been the cathalizer, the explosion, the rEvolution allowing him to travel the world offering workshops, retreats, Immersions and Teacher Trainnings. Along the years his passion for Thai Massage has repeatedly brought him to the Lahu Village (Northern Thailand) and the Sunshine House (Evia, Greece). Pau is an authorized teacher of the Sunshine Network Thai Massage School and is passionate about sharing the beauty of this practice.

About Pau
 
My journey started in 2005 with a first trip to India that changed my life. I decided to quit my career as a journalist, study Yoga, and together with Wari and Isis we started the project of Omshanti Yoga Studio. Yoga was a true inner revolution… and Thai Massage came along as a natural harmonic step.

In the last years I have been fully dedicated to teach AcroYoga Immersions and Teacher Trainnings worldwide. The moment feels just right to offer this 11 day course … specially because I will not be alone The support of my unbelievable team is crutial for this 11 day process to happen.

I am thankful to Yiannis, Panos, Almuth, Demi, Kai and the Zoltan brothers for their Love and Trust.
