‘ Let the Spring in ‘

Hosted by Paula Soares  and Thauana Souza

We are certified Iyengar Teachers. We met in 2014 when taking classes at the Iyengar institute in Amsterdam, and immediately became friends. We have practiced together for many years and shared nice moments, like workshops with Senior teachers in The Netherlands and in Portugal.

One day we had the idea of going to India together to study at the Ramani institute. In 2019 this dream came true and we went on this trip together!

We stayed a month and during one of those evenings talking about how much we had learned so far, and how much we enjoy each other’s company we had another idea: What if we host a retreat together? So we started to plan and think about every detail.

We are very happy that the moment has arrived to invite you to manifest this dream together and share these days in beautiful Portugal, practicing yoga and pranayama, eating re-energizing food, walking in the forest, and more!
