In Ashtanga Yoga we refer to shala
as the home of yoga.

The Ashtanga Cascais is a home of inspiration
for well-being and a balanced lifestyle.

Classes and Schedule


Ashtanga Yoga
it is a practice for everyone.

ASHTANGA CASCAIS HAS FACE-TO-FACE, ONLINE AND MIXED CLASSES.  With classes for beginners to Yoga, and more experienced practitioners, providing a stable environment for learning Ashtanga Yoga. 


It is the only class in our schedule that is not recommended for beginners because some experience is needed to keep up with the pace of the class. This group class should be attended by the most experienced students.

And it is done according to the verbal instructions of the teacher, who makes the traditional Sanskrit counts of the Vinyasas – the exact number of breaths to enter, remain and leave each posture.

Mysore Style

It is the traditional way of teaching and practicing Ashtanga Yoga. And it is a group class that welcomes beginners students, that learn the fundamental bases of this practice. It is a progressive class, which respects the abilities and needs of each student.

And everyone has the proper accompaniment of the teacher, who guides the beginners, and in a low voice corrects, adjusts and teaches the most experienced students.


are classes that happen only in our online format, and were developed within the context of our Retreats by the teacher Vera Simões. These are classes that focus on the influence of breathing on our body and mind, and on staying in simple sequences of postures that work in areas that tend to be more blocked, so that we can stay, feel, release and release, preparing to grow in the practice of meditation.





You can participate in all classes with the exception of Friday.
