Mind Body Strategies to develop more Awareness

An online resource

This is a 3-week online programme where we will explore mind-body strategies, practices and tools that will help you improve your resilience and address some of the physical, emotional and mental symptoms affecting you due to any personal or community challenges. ​ Tune into the energies of Nature and the Seasons and prepare to rest. Boost your immune system, dare to exhale again after a challenging period and bring your awareness to restoration, the present moment and new possibilities. As new waves of uncertainty keep sweeping into our lives, it is the time to bring more awareness to what is happening on the inside, to bring closure to anything no longer serving you, and to make space for a more meaningful rejuvenation. With the heightened anxiety levels created by the pandemic, we want to help you prepare with a practice that is right for you. Develop more resilience in body, mind and spirit, so you can lay the ground for new beginnings.

Tiago likes to see himself as an "explorer of life", as he understands life as discovering and recognizing what we are and everything around us. He studied and worked as a communication consultant, but discovered in Ayurvedic medicine and in Yoga a different way of Being in life. He has been teaching yoga for over a decade and has been practicing since 2005. Learning from various teachers and in different traditions, he has built a broad, free and simple view of what yoga proposes and how it can be approached and practiced in different ways. With deep gratitude and reverence to all his teachers and to the teachers of his teachers, he continues to study annually in Portugal, Spain and India. He has been teaching in Portugal, Spain, Israel, India and Indonesia for love and dedication to everyone's life and well-being.

Yoga teacher and bodyworker, Katrin has always been interested in the body and movement. After many years of dance, her Scoliosis lead her to Pilates and finally to Yoga and Thai Massage, which then became her path in life. For her it’s about the never ending discovery of body and mind, to deepen the awareness and to release all tension and stagnation. Only then, the journey towards healing and transformation can begin, the capacity and power of resilience of the body can grow, and more space for positive life energy and joy can develop. She holds a 500h Level 4 NVQ Yoga Teaching qualification, trained in Manual Lymph Drainage and has studied extensively in Thai Yoga Massage and Osteothai, including a Master Osteothai qualification, over the past years. She used to run a Yoga Festival in London and launched an online anti-stress breathing programme. Since 2015 Katrin lives in Lisbon and co-runs Little Yoga Space, where she teaches and gives Osteothai treatments, and is the director of Hadadi School of Thai Yoga Massage, offering foundation and advanced training courses worldwide.
