Padma Yoga Shala🌿is a space dedicated to the study and practice of Yoga, in the center of Ponta Delgada, on the beautiful island of São Miguel, Azores. It also intends to be a space of sharing, opened to the outside world, a place where the individual and the collective can connect, always with a deep respect for the tradition of Yoga in its essence.

A consistent practice of Yoga can help us to develop the awareness of our body, our breathing and our mind, creating the necessary conditions for self-knowledge, inner peace and spirituality. Padma Yoga Shala was born from the desire to create on the island of São Miguel a safe place where everyone can study, practice and live in Yoga, building tools that allow us to take what we learn in our sticky mats into our everyday life and that develop our ability to be more conscious of "here and now". Yoga is for everyone and there is no better time to start than the present moment ...

Padma (पद्म padma) is the Sanskrit word for Lotus Flower. In the oriental traditions, the lotus flower has a very strong spiritual symbolism. With its roots well anchored in the deep muds of lakes and ponds, the lotus flower rises to the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. The most important meaning of the lotus flower is the purity of body and mind. Shala (लाला śālā) means house, room or study space.

Yoga for everyone...
