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. At that time I was working as an industrial engineer. I was happy with my life but I decided to take a pause to travel. In my mind, it was a 6-month trip but it turned to be much longer and with a lot of adventures, experiences and nice people around. On that trip I started to learn about Thai massage, so another adventure has begun:
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.
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.
About Yoga, I begun in my twenties, I practiced sporadically and just as 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.
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.
I took the course Yoga for Fybromyalgie with Daniella Salort (kinesiologist and Yoga Teacher) and the Holistic Health Training for Women from Arhanta Yoga. I have also joined meditation workshops and courses at Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute (India).
Today my Yoga practice continues growing with the traditional teachings of Kaya Mindlin. With her, I have studied Yoga Nidra and I now am doing her study program of the Gita.
It is not just physical movements anymore!
Teacher and student
I enjoy sharing my experience and learnings to support others in their daily life. I teach just what my teachers recommend me, for the rest I am a student. As a student of yoga and massage, I try to go slow, do it with respect for the traditions, discipline, dedication, compassion, and patience.
Because of my previous experience with corporations, I love also to teach workshops to companies.
