Clara grew up in Austria and became aware of her calling and talent for alternative healing methods at a young age. Starting at 14, she studied meditation with a Guru from India. She learned Reiki at the age of 16, and although she no longer practices, it sparked her interests and reaffirmed her talent for alternative healing methods.
After finishing school, Clara traveled and slowly discovered a way to communicate telepathically with her dog back home. This in turn led her to courses in telepathic animal communication, energy healing techniques, light work and craniosacral therapy.
The focus of Clara’s work is on the energy and light body of the client: the aura and chakras. By accessing them, it becomes possible to unwind both conscious and unconscious blockages. She works with patterns from childhood and on the female/male aspects of the energy fields of the clients.
There may also be a particular emphasis on past lives because traumatic incarnations can leave residual tensions in our energetic/physical bodies, forming restraining patterns unconscious to the client.
“I strongly believe that the ability to heal or develop can only come from within the person, therefore, after the session I will suggest
specific meditation and visualization exercises. These will anchor the changes in the energy field of the client allowing them to transform and develop further.”
Clara offers private healing sessions, readings from overseas, and workshops on telepathic animal communication.
Yoga first came to Eva Sion as a tool to stretch after surfing, and soon it became the gateway to her spiritual growth. Since then and during her travels, she has studied with many different yoga styles with many teachers. Today, she is able to create a blend of those styles and to share her practice in a way that is suitable to all levels. Yoga has helped her to connect her body and soul, and this led her to Thai Yoga Massage.
In 2009, she traveled to Chiang Mai, Thailand, and found the lineage of Asokananda and the Sunshine Network. She has been studying and assisting several Sunshine Network courses with teachers Chatchoi, Itzhak Helman, Kaline Alayna and Pau Castellsague. Eva also experienced the teachings of the great Thai masters, Jack Chaiya and Ajan Picket. Her deep interests and commitment to Thai yoga massage leads her back to Thailand regularly, and since 2013, she has been facilitating Thai Yoga Massage retreats and workshops in Bali, Mexico, and Spain.
“Thai Yoga Massage has become the background and sustenance for my nomadic way of life. It keeps me rooted while still allowing me to travel the world. My passion is to create space for learning this ancient healing art, either teaching alone or by collaborating with fellow teachers.”
French-born Harold Nahmias has been diving throughout the world for over twenty-seven years.
He decided at the age of 24 to quit his musical career and leave his numerous guitars behind to explore South-east Asia. Immediately in love with nature, the culture and the peaceful way of life here, he decided to stay and dedicate his life to another passion: Diving.
“Scuba diving allows you to contemplate the natural wonders of the underwater world, and is immediately accessible to all of us, with a certain amount of practice and education; freediving, on the other hand, is not a contemplative activity, but an introspective one.” His ability to teach freediving techniques (what yogis might call pranayama) makes his lessons interesting and accessible for all levels.
Harold currently resides in Bali, and teaches freediving and certifies all levels of scuba divers throughout different areas of Indonesia.
Mark Garrett has been involved in Permaculture design for more than 20 years.
“I was first introduced to Permaculture in 1985, when I saw a documentary on the subject and thought it made so much sense that I pulled up my concrete driveway and planted trees all around my house,”
This led to earning a Permaculture Design Certificate from Melbourne University, and travelling extensively around the world to observe traditional gardening techniques and building designs. “As the old saying, ‘nature is the best teacher’ goes, Permaculture provides positive solutions to create environmentally sustainable, harmonious and abundant ways of living.”
Mark’s design portfolio is extensive and includes: creating sustainable homes using Permaculture design principles, building a Permaculture demonstration site on two acres of sub-tropical land in Southeast Queensland, Australia, designing an organic “Waste to Wealth and Recycle Centre” in Indonesia, creating an outdoor Permaculture classroom for Six Senses Resorts and Spas in the Maldives, and designing numerous gardens for private clients in locations as diverse as Australia, Malibu, and Barbados.
In 2009, Mark consolidated his theoretical knowledge and 20 plus years of Permaculture experience by establishing the Mark Garrett Permaculture Design Consultancy. He now consults on Permaculture Design and Sustainability Solutions for a wide range of projects for both private and corporate clients worldwide. In addition, he teaches Permaculture Design Principles and is a regular contributor to conferences and seminars on this subject.
