THAI MASSAGE & ACROYOGA
THAI MASSAGE ACADEMY FOUNDER
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.

TEACHING YOGIC PHILOSOPHY AT THE OMSHANTI TT
Thankful to the masters, my parents and friends on the way they shared with me the luminous path of yoga from an early age. Also to Omshanti, for giving me the opportunity to accompany other yogis in their sadhana.
I try to integrate into your daily life some of the many aspects of the yogic tradition (tapas, Svadhyaya, Ishvara Pranidhana, … with the rhythm, needs and imperatives of a modern family man. The presence of the Self in the everyday.
Curiosity about the human body led Erica to study biology and for years she worked in the world of science. One day she attended an Acroyoga class and fell in love with this practice that combined her passion for gymnastics, body awareness and living in the present moment. Since then, Yoga has been a big part of her life and she is dedicated to it full time. She has trained in different disciplines: Vinyasa, Hatha Radja Yoga, Acroyoga and Thai Massage.
In 2015, she co-founded Espai Ioga, a yoga center in Granollers, which she managed for six years with her partner.
Learning, practicing and sharing yoga is what she is passionate about, connects her to herself and what surrounds her, and makes her happier. He is characterized by being persevering, faithful, a follower of his dreams and addicted to verticals.
Erica encourages you to get to know and discover new characteristics of yourself through perseverance and a smile.
I combine yoga classes with logistics, a job that can often be stressful, and practicing yoga on a personal level has helped me a lot to overcome these types of situations.
Yoga was a love at first sight, once I started I could not leave it, so I wanted to go deeper and one thing led to another, I ended up doing training in different styles to help and accompany in this way.
I consider myself happy, open, restless and always eager to learn.
Eternal learner of life, family doctor for 30 years, patients have been my first and great teachers who have made me grow the desire to delve into and deepen human nature, as well as the most nearby and Nature, my great Teacher.
With this restlessness and desire for research I came to meditation and later to Yoga from the hand of Swamini Danda Ananda Jaya Ma and Swamini Ajna Vamadeva with whom I trained in Hatha Raja Yoga, and I continue to advance in the meetings of progression in the ‘Essence of Yoga.
Combining my medical knowledge with Yoga, to adapt it to the needs of each person, and continue to practice, learn and accompany in yoga, is part of my life right now.
I am very happy to be on this path of transformation and I feel privileged to be able to share it with people at Omshanti.

TEACHING AT THE OMSHANTI TT
When i teach yoga it’s like a good song: there is rhythm, movement, colors, senses and a creative spark.
I am part of your toolbox, I am a door to your wonderful inner world, I help you be aware of your actions, both physical (body and breathing) and mental (the whole river of thoughts that creates our brain).
I am dark and clear, of all shades and colors. I am aware that we can always be a bit better and that this is only possible by practicing and working. I need to laugh to feel alive.
I’m a mother, a fact that fills me with joy, love and tenderness. Thank you Alan and Ada for coming to our lives and for being and my masters!
