Our Mission

EvaSion started back in 2013, when Eva’s teacher Itzhak Helman asked her to start teaching her own courses, as a way to expand the Thai Massage knowledge. Since then, It has evolved into a small collective of Thai Massage instructors, Yoga teachers, and outstanding individuals devoted to spreading the seeds of these ancient healing arts across the world and to inspire other people to follow their dreams.

We are aware that the world needs more consciousness and community values, more touch, more laughter, more compassion, more forgiveness..... These is what we aim to cultivate every time we gather in retreats and workshops, with the intention of sharing our Thai Massage & Yoga practice. We hold a safe space for your self exploration and the expression of your inner needs in a welcoming environment. We choose to do this in special venues that support the environment and their local communities and provide the perfect setting for such gathering.

We are activists for the world wellbeing

& you are welcomed to be a part of it!

Eva Sion

Founder of EvaSion Thai Yoga, Thai Massage and Yoga Teacher

Eva´s spiritual journey starts in 2000 after completing her university degree in History of Art, when she traveled to Île la Réunion to take part in a university internship program. What should have lasted 1 year initially, ended up in a life-changing experience of 7 years, when she discovered spirituality, surf, Yoga and the love of a nomadic and free lifestyle

During this period she started to become a perpetual traveler, discovering remote places such as Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Lombok or Australia, where she took her first certificate as Personal Fitness Trainer in 2007.

While traveling in Bali she got her certification as a Spa therapist in 2008, what would take her to work in luxury spas in France afterward.

It didn't take long for her to discover Thai Yoga Massage, a practice combining her passions: Yoga, meditation, and therapy. Since then she has been a devote student and practitioner, taking courses since 2009 in Lahu Village at the Sunshine School of Chiang Mai, as well as attending to several lectures with Master Pichet and Jack Chaya. Not long after that, she started assisting courses of her mentor Itzhak Helman, who encouraged her to continue to spread the Love by becoming a teacher herself.

Yoga, that was initially a self-practice to stretch after surfing, became part of her daily routine as she learned from many masters. This will take her to India in 2010, where she felt deeper into this practice leading her to take a Yoga Teacher Training Certificate in Satyananda Ashram in Nasik, Mumbai, where she not only mastered her yoga practice but also deepened into meditation and a yogic lifestyle

Since then, Eva has organized many courses, retreats, and workshops around the world, in places such as Bali, Mexico, Spain, Morocco or the United States.

She has continued to be involved with the Sunshine Network by assisting courses for Kaline Aylana and Pau Castellsagué….. Much more have enjoyed her loving ways by receiving massage treatments or assisting with the original joyful meditative Hatha Yoga Classes she teaches.

Alejandro Guerrero

Creative Director; Thai Massage practitioner and assistant instructor.

I felt in love with Thai Massage in 2015 and since them I have studied with and received treatments from some of the living Thai massage masters in Thailand and abroad. I am currently working as a professional massage therapist in hotels and retreats.

In the retreats we offer, I like to work with the students to make sure that they understand the technique and also they receive it and know how it feels in their own bodies.

For over 20 years I have been putting my sensitivity and excellence into art and media production, and in recent years, as a part of this team, I put this sensitivity into the Thai massage practice and education, becoming a server to the community and to the students that come to our retreats.

I am very happy to be able to share my passion for Thai Massage and inspire people from around the world. Together, we work to make each retreat a safe space for personal growth and transformation.

Morgan Palmer Hubbard

Yoga Teacher and DJ

Morgan will be part of the team during our Effortless Thai Massage Retreat at Marrakesh Organics, April 2019.

He will be leading the morning practices and pumping our hearts with his music.

I came to yoga at 19 to help deal with a profound scoliosis and spinal surgery that led me to develop a committed yoga practice and learning deeply about my own wellness and healing process.

As the years went on and my practice developed, I started to study further and learn more about the emotional, psychological and spiritual dimensions of this tradition and practice that was transforming me positively from within. I did an intensive teacher training program at the Sivananda ashram in the foothills of the Himalayas, and then upon moving to Barcelona almost 7 years ago, I began teaching and doing further study to develop my practice, understanding and ability to teach more dynamic vinyasa yoga styles, eventually helping found two studios, Yogaroom Barcelona and more recently Yoga Lab.

I now teach a flowing, dynamic form of yoga called Synergy, which teaches “traditional yoga for the modern body” – a blend of Indian, Chinese and Tibetan yogas, and Western physiotherapy, aimed at making yoga practice safer and more effective for modern practitioners by recognizing that due to lifestyle and conditioning, the bodies of modern urban people are different to the bodies that traditional yoga practices were created for. This has provided a strong framework to integrate my own experience with many different yoga practices, internal martial arts, bodywork modalities, and healing and rehabilitation. I am deeply grateful to all who have been my teachers on this path so far.

I am also founder of Yoga collective Nowhere Yoga in Barcelona

Thai-Yoga, Chiharu Shanti

Chiharu Shanti

Founder of Holistic Thai Massage - School of the art of touch-

Will be a part of the team for the YinYang Thai Massage Retreat in Marrakesh Organics.

Chiharu was first introduced to Yoga in 2001. Since that time, her interest and advanced studies have expanded to Ancient Thai healing massage, Meditation, Buddhism and Ayurveda. Being strongly inspired by David Lutt, she felt a resonance in the essence of western bodywork methodology such as Osteopathy and Craniosacral Biodynamic with the integration of Eastern spirituality and medicinal systems. Today she is enchanted by the practice of Osteothai and is an assistant of David's in Europe and Asia where she also organizes his annual Japanese DTM and Osteothai training courses. Her dream of living a life-style with practice, work and travel has all become one.

With a background in yoga therapy, Chiharu’s Osteothai practice is deeply connected in treating psychosomatic conditions and mental stress. Her therapeutic style is concerned with the breathing system, autonomic nervous system, body fluids circulatory system, muscular/skeletal system, organ health, and soft tissue relaxation to allow her patients to return to a balanced state of mobility and harmony.

Currently, Chiharu is expanding her various course offerings for professional therapists to be able to have deeper dialogue with others by expanding our own presence and cultivating mindfulness in our senses of body and mind; meanwhile, everyday, she is deepening her own practice.
