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.
Jovita is the director of the Centro de Yoga de Braga, and has been teaching yoga since 1991. In 2010, Jovita took the Yoga Development Course and Hatha Yoga teacher certification at Yasodhara Ashram. She returned to Canada in 2013 to take the teacher certifications in Hidden Language Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Dream Yoga and returned again in 2015 to renew her Kundalini and Dream certification.
She now offers these classes at her studio in Braga and in nearby towns.
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.
