Scaravelli inspired Yoga Immersions ~ with Katrin Heuser
Dates: selected Sundays, 20 Jun, 4 & 25 July
Price: 20€ per person
A fun and in-depth exploration of movement and individual postures with the aim of finding more space in the body and accessing deeper strength and a more congruent alignment. We look for ways to create the conditions in the body so great movement feels effortless.
In these immersions we will focus on regulating our nervous system and finding ways to return into our own axis, physically, emotionally and mentally.
The Scaravelli inspired approach is an invitation to play with gravity, free the breath and find space in the body to allow it to move to its full potential. That way the body can start to work deeper and move more freely into yoga postures, exploring how these openings and connections can help us un-do habitual (and potentially painful) holding patterns. Then we can embark on a journey of restoration and transformation.

Community acupuncture ~ with Hayley Enright

Time: Book a 30 min slot between 11:00-14:00

Community acupuncture is a relaxing acupuncture treatment in a group setting at more than 50% off regular price.
It’s the perfect time to try acupuncture if:
Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years in Asia. Traditionally friends and family do it together. This is known as “community acupuncture.” Much like a group meditation session, you’re gathered in one room, relaxing quietly and peacefully in a healing environment as your body is restored and finds balance.
What can it help?
Head: Headache, jaw tension, dental pain, ear infection, sinuses
Body: Back pain, neck pain, joint pain, sports injury, numbness, tendinitis
Organs: Fertility, digestion, constipation, hypertension, immune health
Mind: Stress, anxiety, depression, worry, insomnia, focus, concentration
How does it work?
Hayley will chat quietly with you about what you need, then direct you to get comfortable on a yoga mat. She will take your pulse and look at your tongue, then gently put in the needles. You’ll rest while your body relaxes during treatment. Sessions last 30 minutes (the last session begins at 13h30), which is plenty of time for the acupuncture to do its work.

Free your breath ~ with Katrin Heuser
ONLINE & AT THE STUDIO
Date: Sunday 27th June
Price: PAY WHAT YOU CAN (5€ deposit)
Are you finding yourself struggling with the stress of the current times? Maybe you are noticing some typical symptoms sneaking up on you, like feeling drained or sluggish, or carrying a lot of tension in the body.
You would probably just love to get back to feeling yourself again. But you are finding it difficult to find the discipline for doing a regular self-care practice of something, anything. Maybe you can't even make up your mind what kind of practice to take up. I hear you.
That's why I love working with the breath. It's 'relatively' easy, everyone can do it, and it's powerful. It makes a difference. It so profoundly helps to regulate our nervous system, that it promotes a whole range of health benefits. Even with just half an hour, or even 20 minutes a day.
In this workshop you will learn three different breathing techniques, plus different ways to prepare, stretch, vitalise and open the body. You will walk away with some simple-to-follow routines to help you develop a daily self-care practice.
The recording of the online stream will be available to everyone afterwards.
Dream Circle Ceremony ~ with Margo Michaluk
AT THE STUDIO
Dates: Fridays 09 & 23 July, 06 & 20 August
Price: 20€ per circle
*60€ if you will book all 4 circles in advance
Dream and learn to understand dreams, to create your life and to dream for the world!
Dream Circle is a ceremony in which we are sharing our dreams. It is magical practice, that can help you to open up for dreaming and experience common dreaming.
Each dream we treat as a gift for the circle. We are letting go of the beliefs that dreams are "only for me" and "always about me". We are looking for the connections and correlations between dreams, we recognise the synchronisation and sharing our wisdom. We are learning to speak positively about the dreams, not interpreted, not trying to fix them. In a space of dream circle dreams become alive and do their magic that opens the dimensions that controlling mind will not enter.
It is the ceremony dreamed up by Connie Kaplan, spiritual teacher from San Francisco, author of the book "Dreaming as a Spiritual Practice”.
Some more information about the circles here

She specialises in reading subtle signals and being a voice for what is unsaid. She is a cofounder of the School of Sensitivity: an online space where we learn how to turn our sensitivity into a guide on the path to life. She runs women's circles and workshops.
Yin Yoga Immersion ~ with Johanna Hellinger
Next date TBC
Includes the recording
Yin Yoga originates from Taoist Yoga and is a practise that consists of long held positions close to the ground to gently stretch the joints, ligaments and connective tissue (fascia). We will start with a Bija Mantra Chakra Meditation before we transition into Yin Yoga Positions close to the ground that are held between 3-7 minutes. In order to stay comfortable we will use support like bolsters, blankets and blocks.
The journey takes you from the feet to your head. You are invited into stillness to observe the effect on body and mind. We will incorporate the theory and philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the
5 Element system.
Johanna is a passionate yoga teacher, surfer and Thai massage therapist. After experimenting with different yoga styles and methods, she completed several yoga teacher trainings with Trimurti Yoga School in India on 5 Elements Yoga based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. Back in Lisbon she trained with Hadadi School to be a Thai Yoga Massage therapist. She is excited to share her experience and the benefits of Yin Yoga with you.

Embodied Voice Gathering ~ with Anna Grabner
Next date TBC
The Embodied Voice Gathering creates a space for you to reconnect with your voice and experience your voice as an embodied expression of your Self.
The gathering will include a guided breathing and toning practice, to ground yourself and to be more present for anything that needs a more embodied expression in your life right now.
You will be introduced to vocal and non-vocal techniques from Voice Movement Therapy, to understand your vocal instrument within your body better. You will explore the resonant and healing qualities of your voice, and thereby reconnect with your innate voice wisdom and rediscover the sound of a more liberated voice.
You will be safely guided through the practices, hearing only the facilitators voice. This gives you the freedom to sound, move and sing from the comfort of your home.
To integrate the experience and to feel heard, there will be space for sharing and singing.
Anna Grabner is essentially passionate about the healing qualities of the voice. As a singer and psychologist she found an inspiring match in Voice Movement Therapy (VMT). Since her VMT training in 2012 she has been evolving her work based on this safe foundation to assist people in reconnecting with their authenticity through their voice. Anna has found that the playful nature of VMT encourages people to unfold their personal stories in guided voice movement journeys. In her sessions she assists her clients in connecting with their authenticity through movement and voice, inviting them to create their own life poems and songs. Her intention is to provide a safe playground for profound and creative self-expression.
Women's Circle ~ with Martina Vonkomerova
Next date TBC
Price: Donations welcome
Registration: firstname.lastname@example.org (you will be sent a link to join the online gathering)
Womb Wisdom Circle is a sacred space where you are invited to relax into who you are, to drop into your womb and heart, to connect to your feminine receptive nature, feel nourished and supported by your inner nature as well as by other women. It is an invitation for you to learn to honour and respect your unique inner rhythms and to tap into your blood and womb wisdom.
We meet every New Moon to share, meditate and plant new seeds of intentions in the darkness of the moon for the upcoming moon cycle. There will be space for connection and sharing, followed by a Wands of Healing light meditation. It is a Taoist Womb healing practice to help you clear any stagnant emotions, transforming feelings of loneliness, hurt, anger, sadness, grief, sexual frustration and any negativity you might be holding in your womb space. When your womb is clear of these emotions and blockages you feel more vitality and creativity, and power to create and manifest your dreams. We will finish with setting our intentions for the coming moon cycle.
