YinYang Thai massage
EvaSion & Chiharu
October 17th - 24th 2019,
Marrakesh Organics, Morocco.
In the nature, everything is harmonious and complementary… it is the harmony of Yin and Yang and everything contains the seed of its opposite. As we are components of the nature, our body and mind also have the principle of Yin and Yang.
It's the matter of balance.
So it's a good idea to have different rhythms, tools and ideas when we practice bodywork, find balance in the practice and, it's even more important that, we discover ourselves though practice!!!
Welcome to this Yin Yang Thai Massage exploration with Eva and Chiharu - a female approach to the Art of Mindful Touch.

EvaSion has been exploring the globe since 2000. Thai Massage came across her path in 2007, the beginning of a life long love story. It is in this Art where her love for yoga and meditation came together. Starting with Itzahk Helman she developed her therapist career studying with some masters in Thailand and around the world. She shares her love for yoga & wellbeing everywhere she travels to. Since 2013 she is sharing her passions through giving courses and retreats worldwide. Recently she introduces “Effortless Thai massage” and “Thai massage & Yoga Vacation” to offer a space for self-discovery in nature.
Chiharu Shanti, After her first discovery of Yoga in 2001, her 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 assists & organizes David’s “Dynamic Thai massage” and “Osteothai” courses in Europe and Asia, while she gives her own training courses for professional therapists in Japan, Canada and Europe.
They are complementary like Yin and Yang, and they have Yin and Yang in their own selves!
Eva, from colorful country of Catalunya, likes to move! She is an adventurer, a sparkling soul who likes to walk the world!
Chiharu, from the country of simplicity - Japan, listens to the Silence. She is a traditional calligrapher, a musician, who practice ancient wisdoms.
Unlike their character, Eva found her favorite style in Static work and Chiharu found it in Dynamic work! They discovered different conformability just because they follow their own passion and have found who they are…even though they have the same birthday, July 4th!
