About Gayaka / Über Gayaka

Gayaka P. Backheuer, has studied sport and education at the Freiburg University in Germany. His Shiatsu path started at the Osho Academy of Healing Arts in Pune, India, where he studied and gave treatments in the spirit of Osho. Since 1986 ShenDo Shiatsu is his trade as well as his spiritual path. He and his ShenDo colleagues created the “Shiatsu transmformational phases program”, derived from the Taoist model of the Five Elements, as a health educational treatment program, which is an important part of the Shiatsu education at the School for ShenDo Shiatsu and inner growth in Ammersee.


Gayaka P. Backheuer, Dipl. Päd. hat Sport und Pädagogik an der Uni Freiburg studiert. Sein Shiatsu-Weg hat an der Osho Academy of Healing Arts  in Pune, Indien begonnen, wo er im Energiefeld von Osho lernen und behandeln konnte. Seit 1986 ist ShenDo  Shiatsu für ihn „Hand“-werk und spiritueller Weg zugleich. Aus dem Taoistischen Modell der „Fünf Elemente“ haben er und die ShenDo LehrerInnen eine „Wandlungsphasenkur“ als gesundheitspädagogische Behandlungsserie entwickelt, die seit Jahren wesentlicher Inhalt der Ausbildung bei der Schule für  ShenDo Shiatsu  und Inneres Wachstum am Ammersee ist.
