In addition to offering weekly Hatha Classes, the Centro de Yoga de Braga offers weekly Hidden Language of Hatha and weekly Mantra chanting. In addition, we have a monthly session of Kundalini Yoga or Dream Yoga followed by Satsang.

We like to offer our students and yoga friends the opportunity to meet visiting teachers at our yoga centre or in our annual retreat each April as a way to expand their views and go deeper in their reflections. Visiting teachers from Yasodhara Ashram, and Yasodhara Yoga teachers from England and France offer a variety of workshops that, from time to time, include Kundalini Yoga, Lifeseals, Dream Yoga and Music and Consciousness.

The Powers of the Chakras – Weekend Workshops with Swami Sukhananda in December

We welcome the return of Swami Sukhananda to guide us through a weekend of Yoga, exploration, intuition and Light. We already have tremendous powers. How do we use them now? Through our practices we can awaken to inner wisdom, increase awareness and learn to live our lives more joyously and fully. Join us for one day or two:


Kundalini Yoga: The Chakras and the 5 Senses

What do I see? What do I hear? How does my sense of taste affect my choices? Our life is perceived through the senses, and mind acts as the interpreter. The Chakras can help us understand the mind’s incredible abilities powers and creativity. Practice relaxation, mantra, concentration and meditation to expand awareness.

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” Yeats

Swami Sukhananda
is a resident and senior teacher at Yasodhara Ashram in BC, Canada, who was previously director of several Yoga Centres in England. Her connection with the Centro de Yoga de Braga, goes back many years – almost to the first opening of the centre. And she is a regular visitor to Braga whenever she returns to Europe on a teaching tour.

Speaking recently she commented on “the growth of students in Braga with a desire for the Light, and a willingness to reflect and speak courageously about their challenges and their victories. They open themselves up to self-enquiry and to possibilities for change.” Working with Swami Sukhananda is an opportunity to go deeper into your practices, to emerge shining with fresh insights and inspiration.
