What we’re about
I hope you're all staying safe, sane and well as can be during this particularly challenging time.
Due to the ongoing crisis, classes at the palace remain cancelled. I'll be posting updates about future classes, including some FREE online yoga classes – on my Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/soulfulyogalisbon/ – so please like it if you haven't done so already to stay updated ️
I also wanted to extend my heartfelt thoughts and love to each and everyone of you.
... I know some people are finding the isolation really tough.
... Others are worried about losing business and making ends met.
... And everyone is fearful for their health and that of their loved ones.
Everyone’s struggle is real and valid, so let yourself feel whatever is coming up. Try to use this time to nurture yourself as much as you can. At present, we can still go outside and exercise, so try to get some fresh air and sunshine (responsibly). Limit your time spent on social media and checking the news. Eat well. Lend a helping hand (or an ear) to those who are vulnerable, scared and lonely. And look for all the beautiful moments you can, like the solidarity and kindness that is felt around the world.
For those who have been in my classes, I sometimes play a guided meditation in savasana by a wonderful woman called Sarah Blondin. She recorded the below mediation about hope during this situation. I hope it soothes you in the same way it has me several times.
Lots of love, Deanna xxx ️️️
Come and join me for a very unique experience every Tuesday night and Saturday morning – hatha yoga in a beautiful 17th Century palace in São Bento!
Tuesday's Class: No lights, only candles! 7pm-8.30pm
Saturday's Class: Start your weekend right!10-11.30am
Both classes are 90 minutes long and incorporate a variety of meditation techniques, yoga postures (asana) and soulful music – all designed to get you out of your head and into your body!
The yoga practice is suitable for all levels – it's a strong steady flow, but the focus is on creating an inward experience, rather than you leaving covered in sweat.
The address is:
Rua da Cruz dos Poiais 72, 1200-320 Lisboa
IMPORTANT NOTE! Please arrive 5-10minutes before class. I can't leave the downstairs door unlocked once I go up – so please be on time to avoid being locked out and missing class :-(
My whatsapp number is + 351 964 926 329
Classes are 10 euros for drop-in, or 40 euros for a 5 class pass (so you get one for free!).
About the yoga style? I'm trained in Hatha, Ashtanga and Embodied Flow. So this means I find alignment & tradition important, but I don't believe yoga should be too regimented – it should be practiced in a way that complements YOUR individual body and be a space for you to go inwards. No pressure, judgements or expectations – just be you and let it flow :-)
P.S. Mats, props and good, welcoming vibes are provided! Just bring yourself and an open mind ;-)
Obrigada and namaste!
