The Facilitators
Pau is the main teacher of this Thai Massage Course and will be leading you through theory and practice along with his assistants. Originally from Catalunya, Pau started his spiritual journey in 2005 with his first trip to India that became a life-changing experience. He quit his career in journalism to study Yoga, and then opened the OmShanti Yoga Studio near Barcelona. Thereafter, AcroYoga and Thai Massage came along as a natural step, allowing Pau to travel the world offering workshops, retreats, Immersions and Teacher Trainings. Pau has been officially authorized as a teacher of the Sunshine Network Thai Massage School. Recently he has taken up further studies of Osteopathy.

Lakshya (Elouise) is a yoga teacher originally from Holland but based in India since 2010. She teaches Hatha and Yin Yoga, as well as Sanskrit and chanting. She completed a Thai Massage course in 2015 and has been using the techniques with her yoga students. Lakshya is also a holistic health coach and helps people make healthy food and lifestyle choices. Lakshya will be the main yoga teacher during the course.
