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!

Agora is a Yoga School which focuses on the teaching of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga System although it offers other styles of Yoga as well. We offer an Ashtanga Yoga Mysore-style program in the mornings and we offer Ashtanga 4 to 6-week courses throughout the year with a step-by-step approach as well as regular Ashtanga Labs to establish a conscious, solid and sustainable Ashtanga practice.  In complement to the practice of Ashtanga, we offer Yin/Restorative Yoga classes in the evenings and weekend as well as Gentle Yoga and Vinyasa.

Agora is a Meditation Center. We offer guided Meditation classes , Silent Zen Meditation practices and we develop a Buddhist community (Sangha and philosophy study group). We organize regular Yoga and Meditation retreats, an Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training, workshops, community events, and we regularly invite international guest teachers in the field of Yoga and Buddhism to share their knowledge at Agora.

We also occasionally 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.
