Centro de Yoga Monchique
Rua Sao Sebastiao 48

Please see programme of activities below

"Yoga is not an ancient myth buried in oblivion. It is the most valuable inheritance of the present. It is the essential need of today and the culture of tomorrow".

Paramahamsa Satyananda Saraswati
Yoga is the science and art of living. It is not a religion but a way of life, working on all aspects of man's personality - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Yoga will help you develop your immense potential; yoga will show you how to generate and constructively use the energy within you; yoga will show you how to live your life more fully, regardless of circumstances, age, health, etc. Within yoga philosophy and practice there is something for everyone.

Yoga is a scientific and holistic system which develops creativity and awareness and unfolds the deeper aspects of one's personality.
  • The techniques of yoga include:-
  • ASANAS - Yoga Postures
    Yoga practices begin with the outermost aspect of the personality - the physical body. Asanas help to keep the body healthy by removing tensions and massaging the internal organs, thereby improving their function and giving greater flexibility to the spine, muscles and joints.
  • PRANAYAMA - Breathing Practices
    Breathing techniques are important not only for supplying the body with fresh oxygen and strengthening the lungs, but they also have a direct effect on the brain and emotions, balancing the nervous system and putting us in touch with more subtle energies and aspects of our being.
  • YOGA NIDRA - Deep Relaxation
    A useful and powerful practice in which one learns to relax consciously releasing both physical and mental tensions. It is a state of inner awareness and contact with the subconscious and higher consciousness. The practice can be used in self-healing, for increasing one's creativity or to transform one's nature.
  • MEDITATION
    ANTAR MOUNA - Inner Silence
    In this basic practice of meditation one becomes aware of the inner workings and noises of the mind. One learns to witness thoughts and emotions in a way that allows one to accept them. Thus the thought activity is calmed and quietened bringing the experience of inner silence.
  • AJAPA JAPA
    Through constant repetition of a mantra the mind is relieved of all tensions, which in turn removes the root cause of most physical and mental ailments.
