When the mind is lighter than the air everything is possible


The aim of this yoga method is a therapy of both body and mind, not a performance.

We build the complete posture from the foundations rather than local movements of separate body parts.

We use lots of props (such as bricks, belts, blankets and so on) to enable everyone to experience what is the right alignment of the body and assited relaxation brings relief to the restless mind. 

 Students with alignements get specific adjustments and guidelines making these classes beneficial for any body constitution, age or gender and whether they have any previous yoga experience or not.





 Dedicated yoga teacher, medical doctor & devoted meditator

She has been practising yoga (mainly Iyengar style) for more than 15 years and received teacher training in Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre in India (conducted by Sharat Arora who has 40 years of yoga teaching experience and was an assistant of BKS Iyengar for 7 years).

She reoriented her doctor career and now fully focuses on yoga therapy and evidence-based lifestyle medicine. She conducts yoga therapy classes for people with all kinds of body constitutions.

 I have been practising yoga since the age of 16 and from the very beginning it became very important to me. Not too much too say that it has directed the course of my life. It also helped me to find very early in life Vipassana Meditation which completely changed my way of living.

Coming from doctors family I have always had the need to serve people. So medicine seemed to be the obvious choice. I would have never imagined that after 6 years of medical studies and 3,5 years of doctor’s career I might decide to quit. But I did. And in the blink of an eye my life changed completely…

 Love, Travels, New Beginnings, New Possibilities, Portugal, India, Ashram, Yoga Teacher Training, Assisting, Teaching, Amazing People around.

And on the way I have finally found what I was looking for: the tools to stay healthy, happy and active, the tools of prevention & self-healing.

Since then I keep digging to discover more and more about what I am truly interested in: yoga & lifestyle medicine.

  I feel deeply happy to have an opportunity to share the outcome of this search with you.”  




Explorer, technologist, dedicated meditator and in service

After a rough start wandering across the globe while engineering in search of meaning, health and mind issues have forced me to dive in and explore my inner world. Of the myriads of possible tools I tried, only one clearly stood out : vipassana meditation.  This made me understand that although the straight line is always the shortest way from one point to another that is precisely what we all avoid in our lives. We find ourselevs stuck, in danger or burning the candle from both sides. 

While we are quick to condemn our lives, this life path and experience IS the ultimate wealth. The outside world is really not as vast as we think and for an open mind the perceptible differences across the globe are merely nuances.

There is however a bottomless pit vaster than a couple of our universes : our inner-world. Meditation will reveal to you this immensity of possibilities.

Yoga is about space , meditation is about freedom.

There is no freedom without space.

There is no possibility without freedom.

From this voyage I discovered my way of serving and it is through helping the expansion of consciousness with words. I do not have anything to say but tell me your struggle and I will reflect back where the seeds of freedom needs to be planted.

 The way we live our lives is a big challenge for our bodies.

Long hours spent on a chair slowly sum up and sooner or later our mistreated bodies fire back with a back pain that can lead to even less activity, which leads to even more back pain, which leads to even less activity and so on. These classes will give you the tools to get out of this vicious circle.

During the class you will learn how to stand, how to sit, how to relieve your back, how to align your body, how to breath and much more.You will also learn how the body alignment affects the state of the mind, thus how to release tensions not only from the body but also from the mind.

Whether you have never tried yoga before (nor any other activity) or you are already an experienced yoga practitioner, all can benefit from learning and deepening this particular approach.


The way we live our lives does not make it easy to rest and sleep well.

Phone calls, emails, family’s duties, work’s duties, to-do lists, conversations- all of them whirl in our mind when we lay down in bed and try to rest or sleep. Desperately trying to relax we start to fight with them which makes the situation even worse. Due to stress and poor posture the body gets tensed up and even if eventually we manage to fall asleep, we wake up all tensed and tired.

These classes will give you the tools to relax, rest and build a deeper connection with your body.

During the class you will learn how to lie down in healthy, tension-releasing way, how to breathe effectively, how to relax the tense body and how to quieten the restless mind. You will also learn about the body-mind interconnections and the ways to use them for relaxation.

Whether you have never tried relaxation techniques before or you are familiar with them, all can benefit from learning this particular approach.

Next Deep Relaxation class will take place on Thursday evening (27.06) 8.15-9.15 pm in Sattva Institite.

As the number of places is limited please remember to BOOK your class on Doodle:
