Founder and Instructor
Sujati Sandra Lacanna
I began my training as a therapist in India in 1994, where I lived in the International Osho Commune for 2 years, experiencing various body work methods such as rebirthing, massage, color-puncture therapy and various transformation methods, accompanying this process with an honest exploration of my consciousness through meditation and dance therapies- such as Gabrielle Roth’s 5 rhythms. I have more than 20 years of professional experience, and have lived in Australia, Argentina, and Spain. I have been trained in the rocking technique Hamacados Armónicos and then I specialized in Californian massage at the Oasis Massage School, where I graduated and worked as an assistant and instructor for various courses.
I also completed the advanced training course in Family Constellations for Therapists with Vedanta Suravi and Svagito Liebermeister.
At present, I give private sessions and coordinate massage courses and workshops in various cities in Spain through which I can transmit the essence of my work, helping clients and participants to feel a higher level of well being and consciousness.

“I see the body as a key of internal exploration that leads us to silence and the intrinsic joy of life.”
From an early age began my path of exploration and search in the body.

I have more than 10 years dedicated to the world of alternative therapies and for a long period I have worked in different cities in Europe. I have always reserved time to travel and I have been able to train in various disciplines, some of them in their place of origin.
I am qualified in Ayurveda, Thai, chiromassage, reiki, sound therapy and Hawaiian lomi lomi nui massage.
When Hawaiian massage crossed my path it marked a before and after in my career! A unique and different therapy to any other I had tried up to that moment!
That’s why I decided to go all out, I traveled to Poland several times to train with my teacher, Susan Pa’iniu Floyd who came from Hawaii, until finally one day I was able to move to her wonderful island!
Also from her hand I completed my training with the master’s degree that enables me not only to practice it, but also to teach it! I have been lucky enough to live in Hawaii for 2 months, to soak up its culture, its nature and learn from the best!!!!
Now, settled back in Galicia, my homeland, it is an honor for me to make my passion my job and share this wonderful technique through the different trainings and retreats that I organize and teach in different cities of Spain, (at the moment 150 people have already been certified with me between Galicia, Ibiza, Asturias, Basque Country and Tenerife).
I create spaces where you can learn the techniques of massage and at the same time soak in the Hawaiian culture and philosophy!
Aloha is an attitude and being happy is a choice!
