INTRO

Welcome to the world of Ayurveda
& what it can do for YOU

Welcome to the world of Ayurveda and what it can do for YOU. I am Tina Sahl, an Ayurvedic therapist & yoga teacher based in Portugal. What I want to share with you is based on my personal experience and insights into the diverse cultures and practices that have led me to passionately follow the path of a holistic lifestyle.

Ayurveda is an ancient science that includes a variety of holistic practices such as yoga, massage, nutrition and many more specific concepts for managing your health and well-being. Also referred to as “the art of living well” it can help build a solid foundation for a deeper relationship with your mind, body and intuition. The focus is on activating your innate energy and restoring balance, it’s about prevention rather than cure.

Do you have an intuitive feeling that you should take better care of your one and only precious self? Perhaps you are looking to find a yoga practice that is suitable for you, tips on how to manage your busy days with more peace of mind, to get your zest and energy for life back, learn more about the theory in a workshop, join like-minded souls in a retreat, enjoy a detoxifying massage or a sunset meditation surrounded by stunning nature. Together, we can identify your imbalances and look into practices that benefit your unique constitution.

Your Ayurvedic experience can take many shapes and forms. It might be just a little sneak peek, a fun experience or a total life changer. Whatever shape or form it takes, you are taking the first important step towards taking charge of your well-being.

YOGA

What does a Yoga
session look like?

I initiate you to the world of yoga so that you can find your path, at our own pace. In private or small group sessions, at your home or at my space, you can enjoy your practice with my gentle guidance.

It is about learning to work more skillfully with what you have. Alignment and release techniques will help you to feel relaxed, less limited and more in tune with your body and inner self. During the class, I will guide you with clear announcements through a sequence of movements (Asanas) that are a little challenging yet therapeutic. I will choose a topic for each class (in relation to the Ayurvedic 5 Element Theory) that will help you manifest your intention both physically, mentally and spiritually. Through the practice of Pranayama, Mantras and Meditation you will learn to unwind and to bring some moments of “magic” into your daily life.

Your benefits:

  • increased body awareness and a heightened sense of well being
  • a wider range of body movement
  • increased resistance to daily life situations (stress, worries etc…)
  • a feeling of lightness and happiness

Specifically in private sessions:

  • advice on how your personal yoga practice could help you remove specific doshic imbalances (that relate to the manifestation of a disease)
  • lifestyle and nutritional tools to complement your individual practice

Ayurveda

What does Ayurveda do for you?

Ayurveda  – (re-) connecting with nature

The more we are in tune with nature, the more we can improve our self-healing.

According to Ayurveda, our well-being relies on our being in harmony and balance with the five elements (Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether or Space). Nature, by its very essence, heals us. All of these five elements are part of our body and minds to various degrees. Living in tune with nature helps us to balance these elements within us.

To live an Ayurvedic inspired lifestyle, it is recommended to get outside on a daily basis. It can be an easy stroll in the park, an action-packed surf session or just watching the sunset from your window. 

Here are some sample activities:

Nature hikes in Colares / Sintra

This is my home and where I live and I am excited to share with you some magical places on the coast overlooking the ocean or perhaps a hike down to a quiet beach for a little yoga/meditation session. Hikes in the verdant forests offer tranquillity and peace to rejuvenate your body and mind.

Stand up Paddle (SUP) and SUP-Yoga 

Let’s connect with the power of the ocean. The element of Water helps us to connect to ourselves and the world around us, we “go with the flow” and let go of anxiety and stress. When was the last time you tried something new? Step out of your comfort zone and enjoy a boost of confidence and happiness. And of course, some beach chill-out time to make the experience complete.

     

     

    Outdoor Yoga

    The smell of fresh air and a backdrop of stunning nature makes an outdoor practice a special experience. It might be part of a hike, a swim or a paddle or just a stand-alone session. We might practise on the beach, in a secret spot in the countryside or on my rooftop. Immerse yourself in nature and reawaken your energy.

    Ayurvedic Workshops (various topics)

    Learn more about the ancient science of Ayurveda and how to introduce simple practises into your daily life. In a private group setting, you can choose a topic that is particularly relevant to you. Interestingly, learning more about Ayurveda also helps you understand others better which promotes a more peaceful and harmonious environment. 

      BODYWORK THERAPY

      What is Thai-Style Massage – Yoga Therapy?

      The combination of Yoga & Bodywork is often referred to as (Ayurvedic) Yoga Therapy. It enables the mind to transcend, to experience a form of deep healing. The aim of the practitioner is not to try to repair something but to remind your body about its innate ability to repair itself on two levels, a physical and a spiritual one.

      Thai-Style Massage is an ancient healing touch based on Buddha s essential teaching of mindful living through Metta (loving-kindness), Karuna (compassion), Mudita (joy) and Upekkha (equanimity). Thus it is essential for the therapist to create an environment of inner peace, quiet and comfort for both. Both the giver and the receiver are fully clothed, in comfortable outfits, the massage then takes place on a mat on the floor. The receiver is gently moved into different positions on the mat where the therapist is applying various forms of stretching, rolling, compression in a rhythmic and flowing movement. Often compared with “passive” yoga, breath and movement are aligned but the receiver is completely relaxed, all the work is done by the therapist.

      What does a Thai-Style massage do for you?

       

      The application of various methods allows a larger spectrum of healing than is possible with a “western” mind that focuses almost solely on removing the symptoms.

      Through a combination of elements derived from Chinese medicine, Hata Yoga, fascia release, osteopathic principles as well as the concept of Yin & Yang a unique sequence can evolve whereby the giver and the receiver join in a “sacred dance”.

       

      Your benefits:

      • relieves stress, tension & fatigue
      • stimulates circulation & restores vitality in the entire body
      • eliminates pain (sometimes more then 1 treatment is needed)
      • increases emotional well being
      • strengthens the immune system & specific organs
      • detoxification
      • promotes better sleep

      Workshops & Retreats

      I love to immerse, teach and share in a comfortable and/or natural setting that allows time to connect with people, to share some laughter and to create special moments together.

      Whether it is your own retreat / event, or you are looking to simply add a class / therapy / workshop, I can support you by offering my services at an hourly / half day / daily / weekly rate. Depending on the location (nationally or internationally), I can also help you with the logistics.
