She has fallen in love with the yoga philosophy of Patanjali that is very close to Buddhism and she tries to pass onto to others this way of living.

I went to Cascais in December an experienced the free spirit house as a very warm welcoming and relaxing place. A perfect place to tune down, chill out and ease up. The yoga lessons with Rita we're professional and enjoyable in a nice surrounding.
I can highly recommend this place and if I'm back in Portugal I will definitely visit again!
