We have been so pleased to continue to offer a safe space to practice yoga these last few months, as covid restrictions gradually eased we were able to open up more mats per class and no longer required to present a certificate (vaccination/recovery) to enter. This brings a sense of peace to maintaining the studio space and allows us to bring a return of regular workshops and special events.
Over the next few Saturdays we have a bunch of fun and important practices to get amongst:
Inversion Workshop (Level 1) 12th March 15:30h-17:30h
Great for yogi’s who want to deepen their knowledge of inversions, focussed mainly on headstands and tripods with the basics of forearm stands and handstands 2hrs €30pp info/booking
Womens Circle (Lisbon Sister Circle) 26th March 16h-18:30h

On a more personal note, it’s difficult to find the words in relation to the ongoing pain and suffering in the world. The hate, the anger, the greed, the ownership, the demands that are enforced upon others. In yoga we study our self to understand patterns that have been embedded, through past experience and the filters of cultural influence to try and free ourselves of this veil. I have been privileged at MoY to see cultural norms broken down, to share space with our neighbours, to be ok in being different, to sit with everyones uniqueness. We will continue to provide a safe space where you can do this inner work, to grow compassion, tolerance and love. To break down the divides, to treat our fellow human beings, animals and nature with the respect everyone (& everything) deserves. Violence leads to violence, revenge leads to revenge, hate leads to hate, greed leads to greed. This must STOP and it STARTS with you. Putting work into your physical, emotional and mental health can help guide you to a more wholesome life, not just for yourself but everyone around you. This provides a platform to think clearly, take action, stop the war, stop the violence, stop the hate.
