Inês Carmo Costa
Inês has been experiencing the external world since 1990.
She was born in Portugal and grew up with a big connection with nature.
That is why she ended up studying Biology, but her great passion is traveling.
Knowing cultural differences, landscapes and people is what amazes her.
It was in one of her travels that she found that she wanted to teach Yoga.
With an endless curiosity she had plenty of experiences until she found what she loves. Yoga.
She consider herself an eternal student and wants to share this amazing world with all of you.

THAI YOGA MASSAGE
In Yoga there is the concept of invisible energy lines or Nadis that run through all our body and transport our Prana (vital energy).
In Thai Massage 10 main lines were selected and in these lines there are important acupressure points.
If the flow of Prana is not correct it can lead to many deseases, massaging these lines and points stimulates the free flow and leads to a general well-being.
Giving a massage is an action of Metta or "loving kindness" and should be practiced with concentration and full awareness.
Thai Massage is a way for me to give to others, share energy and understand the human body and emotions better.
Yoga comes from the sanskrit root word yuj, which means union.
For Patanjali it means concentration.
Patanjali systematized Yoga into the classical text of the Yoga Sutras, 195 small sentences that guides the sadhaka (practioner) through a series of tecniques to control the mind with the aim to reach self realization.
He developed Ashtanga (8 limbs) Yoga:
- Yamas - Pratyahara
- Nyamas - Dharana
- Asanas - Dhyana
- Pranayamas - Samadhi
For me Yoga is philosophy, religion, union, concentration, is present in every moment of the day, in every step I take, in everything I learn, in everything I want to express. Yoga is life.
