Founder of The Shanti Space in Portugal, Jessica began her yoga practice 20 years ago, which has become an essential part of her life path. Having bowed out of the corporate world to explore creativity, yoga, and meditation, she took the courageous journey from her head to her heart. Now through Hatha, Yin, and Tantric yoga, plus sound, her classes cultivate an awareness of the formless; the breath, the energy channels, and the fluctuations of the mind and emotions to restore balance and presence, while gently guiding our body-mind to expand beyond limited perceptions of possibility.
As a Yin yoga and Qi Gong teacher, Jack shares practices that empower students to connect with their deeper selves and more subtle sensations of being to facilitate healing and awakening. As a classical acupuncturist, he trained at The International College of Oriental Medicine, regarded as a leader in its field and was awarded first-class honors. He works with life cycles, rhythms, and birth energies to restore health and wellbeing. He brings an upbeat spirit and empathetic sensitivity to his work while maintaining kind-hearted energy and authenticity to his clients.
Jo is a dancer, ceremonial space holder, free form dance facilitator, and TRE® provider. She facilitates cacao ceremonies with dance journeys that encourage authentic self-expression and a deepening of the senses. Jo's ceremonies offer a space for people to drop their masks, break out of their molds, to get real, be vulnerable, and find acceptance in the many layers of the self; light and dark. Jo believes in the power and potential of a ceremonial setting to give potency to the groups’ prayers and intentions to allow for the unfolding and expression of truth.
