Michele Surya

Michele Surya has been teaching yoga for over 20 years. In her yoga studio called the Ashramitto (little Ashram) in Tavira, Portugal, she has a daily practice of teaching groups and individual therapeutic classes.

Michele also organises retreats which focus on experiencing yoga as a way of living, integrated in all daily activities.

She has found in Vijnana yoga a way of consolidating and grounding her practice of long years of experience. Vijnana Yoga is for her the combination of Sitting (meditation), Pranayama (breathing), Asanas (postures) and Relaxation (integration) in addition to the practice of the Vayus (10 winds) and the Vital principles.

Michele is also a doula – supporting women through pregnancy, birth and after birth through sharing information, and giving physical and emotional support.

Her training consists of the Yoga Teacher Training Course (Portuguese Yoga Center, Lisbon, 2000 – 2004), Vijnana Yoga Teacher Training Course (Silves, 2008 – 2011), Traditional Chinese Medicine School (Lisbon, 1996 – 2000), Ayurvedic Massage (2007), License of Doula (Almancil, 2012).
