What our Guest say Read More +
The practice of Yoga, with its postures (asanas), and its techniques (pranayamas), the different meditations and relaxation techniques (Nidra) seeks to bring an improvement on the quality of life and a harmony between the different bodies (physical, emotional and mental). It helps us to ground ourselves, relax, detox and expand, not only the body. It expands our consciousness and changes the way we see the world.
“The perfection of Yoga is to be exactly as we Are.”
Yoga at Quintinha do Mar offers a diversified range of possibilities, in the practice, that may be achieved by anyone, independent of their physical condition.
Day after day, and as we develop the connection with Yoga, the practices adapt, either to the moment as to the needs of the group, and it can be quiet or more dynamic.
The purpose is always self-knowledge, presence and full connection with your Being and with everything that surrounds you.
Qi Gong & Tai Chi Ch’uan
Taijiwuxigong is a Chinese self-healing system, simple and powerful, based in Qi Gong (Chi Kung) and Taiji (Tai Chi Ch’uan) founded by the great master Dr. Shen Hongxun.
This system uses several synchronized exercises, static and dynamic postures, combined with breathing techniques, sound and mental concentration that may be executed standing or lying down.
This practice fits everyone and may be adapted to all ages and health conditions.
The main objectives are to detox / purify the body, the energetic system and the emotions, promoting health, rejuvenation, joy and vitality.
It’s an opportunity to unleash your inner potential and discover a new way to look at yourself and to the world.
