The philosophy behind…
After trying to decide which healing modality was best suited to express my belief in an integrated, holistic system that recognises individuality, I have come across the Thai Vedic (Yoga) system. In it, Ayurveda is seen as the governing system that through it’s 5 Element theory combines and integrates other healing modalities such as Yoga and Bodywork/Thai Style Massage.
I divide my time between teaching Yin and 5 Element Yoga sequences , Bodywork sessions , Workshops and Retreats both here in Portugal and overseas. Travelling also remains an important part of my life . It helps me to refresh my mind and to follow my lifelong pursuit of studying from and with all those amazing souls that share some part of my journey and to whom I feel so grateful for.
What does a Yoga
session look like?
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.
- 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

What does Ayurveda do for you?
During a consultation session, we can determine your predominant constitution, as well as trying to find out what causes an imbalance. This is a very individual approach, what works well for one person may not work at all for another. Based on this theory, I will help you with suggestions to optimize some habits in your daily life (this might even extend to your Yoga practice). “…an understanding of the Ayurvedic constitutional types helps us adapt yoga practices according to individual requirements” (David Frawley)
- Become aware of your Constitution/ Ayurvedic Body Type
- Learn to know what suits your Constitution, what you should avoid
- Know what kind of movement and exercise is best for you
- Together we work on some strategies that may help you integrate new habits into your daily life
What does Ayurvedic Yoga Massage do for you?
Whilst similar, at first glance, to Shiatsu or Thai and traditional Ayurvedic stroking massage (abhanya), it is actually a completely different system of therapeutic bodywork as it uses a unique system of synchronized breathing and stretching, progressively moving deeper and deeper within the body.
During your therapy session, I provide my full attention, in order to connect with you on a level. This is where (self-) healing starts to be effective. I always remember the words of one of my teachers Sebastian Bruno: ” Thai Massage is a dance of two people moving relaxed and gracefully …” So, shall we dance together?
- 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
- promotes better sleep
