Welcome to ÁGORA…


Ágora Yoga Lisboa was born of a common dream and aims to become a collective one.

The dream to create a different space, thought as a Yoga and Meditation studio that could allow for social and cultural exchange. Our wish is to create a space where practices for the body, the mind and the heart can merge. Where physical and meditative experiences can meet creative explorations. A place where people can gather and get to know each other in a bubble of simplicity, loving kindness and acceptance. Where healing can happen and self-transformation can unfold. Where thoughts, ideas and a community can take roots.

Our Yoga and Meditation Studio is located in the heart of Lisbon at Rua Rafael de Andrade 23, near Campo Santana and the metro station Intendente. Second Floor!

We developed an Ashtanga Mysore program, and teach other forms of Yoga and Meditation classes, special workshops, community events, we invite international guest teachers, and we organize retreats, in Portugal and abroad.

We also host trainings and  yoga workshops given by local teachers, from different schools of Yoga, Meditation, Healing Arts, Massage…

Maximilien Vergnaud is an Osteopath who has his office at Agora, you can book treatments with him on his website HERE.

At Agora, we also have a “Therapy Room” where therapists (massage therapist, osteopathy, acupuncture, etc) can give treatments, massage. You can ask us if you are interested to get an appointment, or if you wish to rent the space.

AGORA…
is Greek for « Open space assembly »


Nearly every city of ancient Greece had an agora when the classical period of Greek civilization began to flourish. Usually located near the center of town, the agora was easily accessible to every citizen. It was the heart of the city – where ordinary citizens bought and sold goods, politics were discussed and ideas were passed among great minds like Socrates, Aristotle and Plato. Some of the world’s most important ideas were born and perfected within the confines of the Athenian agora including, most importantly, the concept of democracy.

AGORA also means Now in Portuguese

&

AGHORA…
in Sanskrit, is derived from the root word ghora


which means « darkness » and « fear ». A- ghora stands for the opposite, « illumination », « peace », « calmness ». Darkness represents ignorance, whereas knowledge brings forth light. The path of Aghora, which is also a school of Tantra, aims to eliminate the veil of ignorance.

October Events (1/3)

6-Day Yoga Retreat in Sicily, Italy

Sonia Ama & Marine Duchesnes - ONLY 1 SPOT LEFT

« Svadhyaya» est le terme sanskrit qui désigne “l’étude de soi”. 

Il se réfère à la fois à l’étude des textes fondateurs du Yoga, de la philosophie du Yoga, et à l’effort que nous déployons vers la connaissance de soi. Une invitation à observer ce qui se passe dans notre corps physique pendant la pratique, comment le mental réagit, les pensées qui affluent pendant la pratique posturale et la méditation. Quelles sont les pensées récurrentes et que peuvent-elles révéler sur nous et sur le chemin à suivre pour vivre mieux?

Nous avons pensé cette immersion comme un voyage d’approfondissement de votre pratique du Yoga, sur le plan anatomique, physique, philosophique et émotionnel. Dans le contexte actuel, les outils qui nous permettent recentrage et connaissance de soi sont plus que jamais utiles pour garder une “distance” entre notre nature profonde et les événements extérieurs qui tendent à nous éloigner d’elle…

In the second part of the evening we will move towards Yin and Restorative yoga poses aiming at working on the deeper tissues in our bodies, opening and releasing the stored stress , tensions or blockages.

Finally we will end the evening with a Yoga Nidra practice to get a deep rest while explore the subtleties of our consciousness. You should leave the evening feeling an increased vitality as well as a deep peace and relaxation.

Yoga Postural Workshop

Friday 15 October 19-21h15

Marion invites you for a special Yoga workshop on Friday 15 of October from 19h to 21h15.

Yoga for a healthy, strong and flexible back

We all have experienced back pain at some point, be it from working long hours on a computer or from injuries due to ill movement patterns or postural misalignment.

The spine is the foundation of most Yoga poses. When practiced with focus, yoga asanas encourage the muscles that provide support to the spine and its connective tissues to work together with the abdominal and deep core muscles. Yet, because our bodies tend to compensate for weak muscles groups, we sometimes « dump » our body weight into certain areas, causing strain and pain. In this workshop, we will explore how this connection work, and how to engage the right muscles to protect the spine. 

After revisiting anatomical features of the spine, we will explore postural alignment that helps to maintain the health of the back, including postures that stretch, rotate, extend, side bend and strengthen the spine and its surrounding muscles and connective tissue.

Keeping our backs healthy, strong and flexible is key to optimum global health ! 🙂

Price is 20€ for members or 2 classes on your class card/ 25€ for non-members.

Registration is possible on Fitogram
