Yoga is not a mere physical exercise, but rather a philosophy or practical life science. Hatha yoga is usually the best known practice in the West and consists of performing physical postures (asanas) and breathing techniques (pranayama) in preparation for meditation. Respecting the limits of the body and seeking to achieve relaxation, a regular practice of Hatha yoga brings innumerable physical, emotional, and mental benefits.
Through this practice, you will learn to reconnect with breathing and gain greater awareness. In the stillness of each posture, you will have the opportunity to be in the moment, to face your limits, and to learn that you can overcome yourself. In this silence, you can begin to listen to your deepest voice and to understand that the light comes from within.
Mafalda is the founder of the project. In 2014, she decided to take a sabbatical period and traveled around the world. At the beginning of 2016, she felt the desire to return home in the middle of mother nature. From this return, was born the desire to create a project with deep roots and at the same time inspired by movement and freedom. This place brought to her all this. Here, she could feel the kiss of the breeze, the embrace of the winds, and the freedom to dance in the woods. From here, has reborn the connection with the earth that she wants to share with everyone who visit this place.
