Welcome to ÁGORA…


Ágora Yoga Lisboa was born of a 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 in the mornings and Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga guided classes in the evenings and weekend. The other focus of Agora are the Meditation classes and Buddhist community. We organize both Yoga and Meditation retreats, workshops, community events, and invite international guest teachers.

We also host trainings and workshops given by local teachers, from Healing Arts, Massage and Bodywork.

Diane Brito is the Osteopath who has her 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.

2022 Retreats

12-15 Mai Retraite Yoga en Charente

avec Sonia Ama et Marion Duval

Retraite Yoga en français du 12 au 15 mai 2022, au Dojo du Plessis, près d’Angoulême (3 places restantes)

L’enseignement pendant la retraite sera assuré par Sonia Ama avec la participation de Marion Duval, qui a rejoint l’équipe d’Agora à Lisbonne depuis septembre. Cette retraite se fondera sur les principes de l’Ayurveda ainsi que du Yin & Yang , c’est-à-dire sur la notion d’équilibre entre les éléments et les énergies, notion qui se retrouve dans ces deux traditions ancestrales.

L’équilibre nous semble souvent difficile à maintenir dans nos vies au quotidien. Equilibre entre travail et plaisir, entre activité et repos ou détente, équilibre entre corps et esprit, entre mental et intuition. Enfin, l’équilibre entre ses besoins, ses désirs, et ceux des autres êtres qui nous entourent, entre connexion et déconnexion.
Ainsi, nous explorerons cette thématique en profondeur au cours de ces 3 jours, à travers des pratiques de Yoga variées, la mise en place d’un journal individuel, la pratique de la Méditation et de la pleine conscience.

May 12-15 Meditation Retreat in Alentejo,Portugal

with Luis Salamanca

THE WHEEL OF LIFE
MEDITATION RETREAT
with Luis Salamanca
In Alentejo
The wheel of life is a Tibetan visual description of how we go through life with a reactive mind that brings much suffering. During this retreat we will explore how the wheel “turns”, how we get trapped in it and -most importantly – how to find a way that leads us out of it, to freedom.
This is Luis’ “solo” guided retreat of the year where he will teach from his own inspiration, experience and creativity what may be effective in the path of inner liberation.
Deepen your meditation practice, connect with nature and with spaciousness.

Chuck Miller 4-day Intensive Course in Lisbon

June 9-12 2022 - Few spots left

Very special time at Agora! 5 spots remaining

We are very happy to welcome Chuck Miller for his first time teaching in Lisbon.  I had the chance to study with Chuck in Paris. It transformed my perception of the practice, deepening my awareness of the breath and of the unconscious patterns of our body and mind. Don’t miss the opportunity to join this 4-day immersion into breath and movement with one of the most senior Ashtanga teachers. It is a blessing to study with Chuck.
