Testemony

"It was my first retreat, and it was a fantastic experience. The Yoga instructors were highly professional, friendly, attentive, and balanced. The facilities were welcoming and charming; the pool was excellent; the natural surroundings, along with the sounds of wind chimes, were invigorating and delightful. The vegetarian food was delicious! The Yoga and meditation practices were highly effective and rejuvenating. I loved it!"

Niranjana

When I was 15, I started practicing yoga, exploring the asanas (positions), relaxation and, above all, meditation. I wanted to find a natural method to balance my emotions and achieve physical and mental well-being. In 2003 I took the Yoga for Teachers Course, a transformative and unique experience that opened the doors for me to start sharing yoga with the community. In 2004 we founded the Portuguese branch of the International Sivananda Vedanta Centers in Lisbon.

In addition to Yoga Teacher Training, I became a Yoga Master in 2006/7 and continued with a Master's Degree in Advanced Yoga Techniques in 2008/9. I also have training certificates in Philosophy (Bhagavad Gita), Meditation (Raja Yoga Sutras), Hatha Yoga Techniques and Adapted Yoga for Pregnant Women, for Seniors and for Children, as well as Retreats in Vedanta and Meditation on Mount Sahaja in Portugal between 2010 and 2019.

Surya

During my vacation from my Sociology and Psychology course in 2002, I joined the Yoga Teacher Training Course at the Sivananda Vedanta International School of Yoga. It was a transformative experience that led me to dedicate myself exclusively to the practice and teaching of Yoga as a trainer and translator on Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Austria, Spain, France, Canada, the Bahamas and India. In 2004 we opened the Portuguese branch of the International Sivananda Vedanta Centers in Lisbon.

I became a Yoga Master in 2007 and continued with a Master's Degree in Advanced Yoga Techniques in 2009. I also have training certificates in Philosophy (Bhagavad Gita), Meditation (Raja Yoga Sutras), Hatha Yoga Techniques and Nutrition and Ayurveda. I was part of the Monte Sahaja management team in Portugal between 2015 and 2018.
