Yoga Teacher, Spiritual Seeker and a nomadic mom
Yoga is not only my passion it is my ongoing research to live in sintony and harmony with my nature, the others, the earth and the universe. I have practised and studied traditional yoga for almost 20 years. I have been lucky to start my yoga journey into traditional hatha yoga (and ashtanga yoga in particular) thanks to marvelous Indian teachers, Kamal Singh from Rishikesh and Hemanth Venkataram from Mysore. My research and study of traditional hatha yoga have been enriched through the years by the many trips to India and the Far East, and by the many hours spent daily on my mat and on individual study and exploration. I have been teaching yoga in China, Hong Kong, Bali and Italy. Now I live in Portugal and the energy and beauty of these places have inspired me even more to share here my knowledge and experience on traditional hatha yoga.
My intention with this retreat is to create a sacred space for exploration and personal inner growth, through the tools and techniques of traditional hatha yoga to purify the physical and energetic channels of the body, to allow prana (the vital energy) to enhance and circulate in the physical and subtle bodies. Through daily meditation and conscious breathing techniques we will develop more awareness. Sharing the space and experience with the group will allow further enrichment and integration. Moreover, you will return home with tools and techniques to apply in your ongoing journey towards inner growth.
