Welcome to ÁGORA…


Ágora 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 Mártires da Pátria and the metro station Intendente. Second Floor!

We developed an Ashtanga Mysore program in the mornings and Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha 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.

October Yoga Teacher’s Training

The Art of Vinyasa - Yoga Teacher's training October 19-23

with Ron Reid and Marla Meenakshi Joy

5-day , 32-hour Teachers’ Training Intensive for Yoga teachers and experienced practitioners.

POSSIBLE TO JOIN FOR 2/3 DAYS ONLY – SPECIAL PRICES AVAILABLE FOR PORTUGUESE RESIDENTS

With internationally renowned Ashtanga and Vinyasa teachers Ron Reid and Marla Meenakshi Joy (founders of Downward Dog studio in Toronto, Canada).

This Art of Vinyasa training is designed to inspire you to teach safely and effectively the ancient practice of Vinyasa Yoga. The Sanskrit root “Vinyasa” means “to place” (vi) in a specific way (nyasa). In a vinyasa style practice, how poses are linked or connected is vital.

We will explore in detail specific groupings of poses from First, Second, and Third Series of Ashtanga Yoga, in terms of the specific movements that take us from one pose to another to create a seamless flow.

October Events

Shakti Dance Workshop

Sunday October 9 with Revital Carroll

15h-18h – there is no NEED TO BE A DANCER OR TO HAVE ANY PRIOR EXPERIENCE WITH DANCING TO JOIN!

Shakti Dance is about illuminating the source of creativity within us and moving from that profound center, our core. In the process of cultivating flow, we awaken our innermost emotions and allow them to express and complete. We work with waves, circles, undulations, and most essentially – THE SPIRAL – are all organic expressions of natural movement, holding the potential to heal, restore, and inspire us to return to wholeness.

This workshop will include a short lecture about the shared roots of Temple Dance and Tantric Yoga in East India, as well as a deep embodiment practice. In Shakti Dance, we cultivate beauty, strength, balance, and flow, to awaken the spirit and activate our power and grace; returning to a natural state of wholeness.

2022 Yoga Retreats

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Immersion in Alentejo Oct 13-16

Anatomy of Breath: Moving Prana

Sonia and Vlad, the two Ashtanga Mysore teachers at Agora will be leading their second retreat of the year in October (13-16) at the beautiful Fonte das Perdizes in Alentejo region.

3 SPOTS LEFT

A deep dive into the exploration of the yogic breath and how it is applied to the practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa.

We will explore the breath from the standpoint of it’s philosophical roots in yogic scripture and Ayurveda, it’s anatomical and physiological patterning, and it’s effect on the subtle body along with the psycho-spatial consequences.

The immersion will allow us to slow down and utilise a variety of embodied techniques to develop a felt sense of the subtle flows of prana (inhale) and apana (exhale), and ultimately discover how the interactions between these two forces hold the blueprints of asana and other yogic practices.

Space is limited. Click on ‘Read more’ to Open the flyer and write us to register

2022 Meditation Retreats

meditation retreat

Meditation retreat in Alentejo Sep 29 - Oct 2

The Burning House

Luis will lead his next meditation retreat at Fonte das Perdizes, Alentejo, Sept 29- Oct 2 2022, together with his teacher Amalamati, former director of Valencia Buddhist Center, coming from Barcelona. The theme of the retreat is “The Burning House”.

The Burning House is a story from the Buddhist tradition that helps us understand how we may be living inside a burning house/mind, attached to our likes and dislikes while missing the urgency of getting out of the danger.

During this retreat we will explore how we can get out and what can inspire a shift in our consciousness. How can we find inspiration and vitality in us capable of creating meaningful change in us and others?

It will be an opportunity to deepen your meditation practice, connect with nature (52 Ha!) and with spaciousness.

Space is limited. Click on ‘Read more’ to Open the flyer. Write to register or directly fill in the online booking form.
