OUR STORY

Offering Traditional Ashtanga Yoga in Portugal, since 2003

A SECOND HOME FOR YOUR PERSONAL PRACTICE

Casa Vinyasa was born with humble beginnings, offering classes inside a cozy home. Being able to share this traditional and powerful practice, carried from India here to Portugal, has been an ever flowing gift for us.  

The process of guiding each student through their first experience with Ashtanga and watching them develop strength and health is like nothing else in this world.  This practice empowers all that come to it, like a glowing catalyst for whatever your path may be.  

We have people from around the world, from all ages and all backgrounds, studying with us at Casa Vinyasa including business professionals, artists, athletes, surfers, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters all discovering a newfound power within themselves through the traditional Ashtanga Yoga practice. 

Over the years the school has grown and in 2011, inaugurated by Eddie Stern, Casa Vinyasa entered a new and larger home, more capable to serve the community.  The school does all it can to keep the home-style feel and to be a small retreat from the city for yoga and health. 

Casa Vinyasa is located in the heart of Lisbon, Portugal. Founded in 2003, Casa Vinyasa was the first place in Portugal fully dedicated to offering daily traditional Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India.

Located on the 5th floor of 16, Avenida Sidonio Pais, across from Parque Eduardo XVII, with a view of the river, Casa Vinyasa is an open space for anyone to visit.
