About Lorena

Welcome to my website! My name is Lorena Asencio, a Chilean woman in The Netherlands. My passion for complementary therapies started about ten years ago while I was working as an industrial engineer. During a long trip in Thailand, I started to learn about Thai massage, so another adventure has begun:

Thai massage

My education in Thai massage involved 450 hours of training in TMC School Thailand. Besides that, I followed workshops with other teachers and schools (after three times in Thailand between 2014-2017).

Other styles of massage 

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 at Wellness Academy and a bit of Tuina massage with Ludwig Schutte. 

As a freelancer, I have given thousands of massages in professional studios in Den Haag. 


About Yoga, I begun in my twenties, I practiced sporadically and just as physical activity. 

Today my personal practice is softer, it nourishes me, is deeper and subtler. I live it every day. This is thanks to the traditional teachings of my teacher Kaya Mindlin. She teaches the other important aspects of Yoga: mantras and study of sacred scriptures. 

Some of my yoga studies:

2021-Present Yoga programs with Kaya Mindlin: Yoga Nidra, Gita, Patanjali, Supreme Release Yoga, mantra recitation

08/2020-04/2021 Holistic Health Training for Women from Arhanta Yoga

08-10/2020 Yoga for Fybromyalgie with Daniella Salort (kinesiologist and Yoga Teacher)

2017 First 200 hours yoga teacher training in The Netherlands in Yogic Life Academy with Zdenka (Satya Simran)


As a teacher, I enjoy sharing my experience to support others in their daily life. I teach just what my teachers authorize me to share. As a practitioner of yoga and massage, I try to go slow, do it with respect for the traditions, discipline, dedication, compassion, and patience.
