About Lorena

Lorena Asencio

Welcome! My name is Lorena Asencio, by profession an Industrial Engineer and by heart a Yoga Teacher, Thai massage therapist and teacher certified by the TMC School Chiang Mai, Thailand

My education in Thai massage involved 450 hours of training (after three times in Thailand), besides that, I followed workshops with other teachers and schools. Since 2015 I give Thai massage courses and workshops.

In 2017, I moved to the Netherlands, where I learned Relaxing massage combined with deep tissue techniques to work as a freelance massage therapist in Den Haag. I also learned Pregnancy massage in Wellness Academy and a bit of Tuina massage with Ludwig Schutte. 

About Yoga, I begun in my twenties, I practiced sporadically and just as a physical activity. Later, during my office-job-time in Chili, I wanted to practice more often at home but I was not ready to build a daily practice. Yoga helps me to experience the power of awareness, recognize and respect other realities, to observe and accept feelings and reactions. 

I did my first yoga teacher training in The Netherlands in Yogic Life Academy with Zdenka (Satya Simran). In 2019 I went to the 10 days Vipassana retreat in Dhamma Pajjota and since then it is also part of my practice. Today, I continue practicing and studying daily. I took the course Yoga for Fybromyalgie with Daniella Salort (kinesiologist and Yoga Teacher) and I am doing the Holistic Health Training for Women from Arhanta Yoga. I also joined meditation workshops with Prof.  R.S. Bhogal from Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute (India) and after that I started their teacher training program because their traditional teachings. 

I enjoy sharing my experience and learnings to support others in their daily life. In my lessons, I focus on the breathing and body awareness. Pranayama and meditation are included (sometimes also bit self-massage!). Because of my previous experience with corporations, I love to teach workshops to companies.
