Our Approach to Yoga
It is with a joyful heart that we welcome you to Yoga/Meditation at the Ancient Spanish Monastery.We are blessed to hold our classes within these ancient walls that surround us. Each time we enter here, our deeper selves begin to sense de reverence, the magic, and mystery of this 883-year-old home to the monks who long ago lived here. A gentle, kind and loving peace is found here as we leave the concerns of the outer world for the serenity of the heart in this place of deep spirit. Allowing our hearts to experience the beautiful stillness here, we find our bodies and hearts in synchronization as we flow through the yoga poses.
Borba Yoga is a way to Enlightenment. A way to find Peace and Harmony within you; it is rooted in ancient tradition, but is unique in its modern-day transformational journey on the path to a more joyous life--both on and off the yoga mat. Here there is no guru to follow, just follow your heart.
Welcome to the journey. Namaste.
We listen to our body's messages
Make no mistake; every cell knows when you are unhappy, anxious or stressed.
Exercises using your breath to calm emotions and thoughts, bringing forward strength and positive qualities.
Your body and mind are meant to be a whole, and to ensure that they are, your whole existence is based on feedback loops. Body listens to mind; mind listens to body. Awareness is the link. A cell awareness is expressed in chemical reactions instead of words. The message comes through loud and clear.

Enlightening life's habits
We tend to think that we are stuck with our physical, emotional and mental habits and limitations, some of which can be destructive or distracting when we aspire to lead a spiritual life. However, we can change for the better using our inner capacities and permanently transform bad habits. In the classes, tips are shared for accelerating this process using meditative techniques
