Aravinda Yoga Shala is a center dedicated to the teachings of Yoga and other disciplines that promote personal development, health and physical and mental well-being.
We see the teaching of Yoga as very gratifying, since it helps to strengthen the foundation for the development of one’s potential and the ability to live fully.
We hope to plant the seed of Yoga in the hearts of all who seek us. Thus, we try to improve the condition of body and mind, so that they become a fertile ground where this seed can sprout and become a splendid tree, full of flowers and fruits!
In the work that we have developed in our center dedicated to the teachings of Yoga, we intend to preserve the technical and traditional teaching of the practice. Even more based on everything we have learned from our teachers, which are: Carlos Rui Ferreira, David Swenson, Gloria Arieira, Isa Guitana, Joana Cadete, Nuno Cabral, Pedro Kupfer, Sharath Jois, Swami Suddhananda, Tomás Zorzo. And many other teachers we have had the blessing to cross in this life.
Also, what they themselves learned from their teachers: B. K. S. Iyengar, Patthabi Jois, Swami Dayananda, among others.
In this continuous line of teaching and learning that has been maintained over time and that begins in SHIVA *. Above all, source of Absolute Knowledge.
TO ALL, our immense gratitude for everything taught, directly or indirectly!
* It is said that Shiva taught the practice of Yoga to his consort Parvati, and she transmitted it to Humanity.
