About our Classes

Hatha Yoga is the style of Yoga best known and practiced in the West. It aims to prepare the physical, energetic and subtle body for meditation or Dhyana, thereby opening the way to its ultimate purpose - liberation or Moksha.
Hatha Yoga

Dynamic Hatha Yoga

It involves a broad system of psycho-physical postures; Techniques of control and expansion of vital energy through breathing; Internal purification; Deep relaxation and concentration. By focusing the mind on the body, synchronizing movement with breathing deepens the inner consciousness, stimulating the whole organism.

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa Flow

Vinyasa is a dynamic form of Hatha Yoga, which gives a particular importance to the transition between postures or asanas, creating a continuous flow in which the synchronism of movement with the breath is fundamental, which translates into an active meditation. It promotes fluidity, strength, lightness, tranquility, and greater clarity.

Kurunta Yoga

Kurunta Yoga

(Yoga with the support of wall ropes)
Yoga practice with the help of ropes, which are fixed to the wall, enables more space and freedom in the joints, lengthens the spine and strengthens the whole body. It brings greater understanding of alignment and makes inversions and backbends more accessible; intense and deep stretches can be performed safely.

Hatha Yoga - beginners

Foundation Yoga

(Fundamental aspects of Yoga)

The focus of these classes is the permanence in the postures as an essential platform for the awareness of the body and the breath. Giving special attention to the basic but fundamental aspects of Hatha Yoga. These classes are suitable for all.



(Yoga Movement for Women)

It is a way of generating a space where all women and girls are free and able to live in resonance with the power of their natural cycles and in connection with their inner wisdom. All women are welcome, at any stage of their lives, from menarche to menopause, from preconception to postpartum!

Kurunta Yoga

Yin Yoga

(Abiding, relaxation and introspection)

Based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang, opposing and complementary forces. Applied to Yoga, Yin is a delightfully deep, meditative and reflective practice in which postures are held for an extended period of time. It works on the deeper layers of the body, such as the connective tissues, joints and tendons.

Qigong - Chi Kung

Chi Kung

(Movement Meditation)

Qigong (reads: Chi Kung) - the "Chinese Yoga" is a millenarian practice for the Life Energy cultivation that originated from China. These movements coordinated with the breath, develop a meditative mind, intensify the flow of energy, benefit the internal organs and whole body.

Meditação / Zazen


(Dhyana - Zen Meditation)

Relying on the Soto-Zen tradition, and on the teachings of the Masters that have guided us uninterruptedly, for over 2500 years, since Shakyamuni Buddha. Focused on the breath and staying in the sitting posture, with the legs crossed and the spine elongated... the thoughts pass and the mind observes the present moment.

Aulas Particulares Yoga

The combination of Hatha Yoga with natural and conscious movement, through different dynamic approaches. The localised focus on each posture and using breathing techniques allow for a natural fluidity of movement.

Catarina Rola

My journey began in 2009 and I've had the opportunity to explore different teaching approaches and techniques in the United States, Mexico, France and Portugal.

A sensitive understanding of the body-mind connection as an inspiration for physical response and creative expression.


with: Katherine - class in ENGLISH

22, 29 of April, 13, 27 of May. Monday (19:00 - 20:30)

Somatic Dance is a journey of free-flow and facilitated movement by the rhythm of music and voice. It is an invitation to cultivate inner exploration into the body and connect to our senses through movement, breath and sensation. It is a time to let go of the mind and embrace our aliveness in presence.

We will connect to our life force energy with embodied movement and awaken our body’s energies and sensations.

Somatic Dance facilitator and Embodiment coach. Her devotion for the body started in New Zealand where she discovered conscious dance space and found dance has a powerful medicine to cultivate safety, openness and a deeper connection with body’s intuitions.

Passionate about movement medicine and sensory exploration.

Exploring movement and the way it can transform the physical body, mind and spirit.


Karolína Kramská

Certified Yoga, Pilates, and fitness teacher coming from a dance and gymnastics background. In this modern fast-moving society, I want to help people go back to their roots and reconnect with their bodies and their original purpose. To be healthier, happier, and in sync with their natural rhythms. I do this through creative movement and working with breath and mindfulness.

Movement is a natural part of our human essence. The same as breathing. To move means to be alive.

Workshops & Retreats

Workshops are an excellent opportunity to open up to learning with different teachers and to deepen our practice and knowledge of Yoga with longer classes and without the pressure of day-to-day schedules.

In the context of a retreat this experience is even more intense because they are residential, everything is carefully planned to facilitate a deeper plunge into ourselves, namely healthy food, the timetable and type of activities, not forgetting the time to share experiences.

The islands of the Azores, due to the diverse landscape and exuberant nature, is a privileged place for us to feel immersed in the 5 elements. Practicioners can enjoy the volcanic hot baths, which have enormous therapeutic properties and leave us totally relaxed, the pedestrian paths, the sea (whale watching and swimming with Dolphins) or simply the sandy beaches or natural pools in the sea. Workshops and retreats is a great chance to combine vacations with Yoga.

About us

Prana Vinyasa - Azores Yoga- Ponta Delgada

Azores YOGA - Prana Vinyasa

Founded in 2004 under the name "Casa Vinyasa", it was the first space totally dedicated to the practice of Yoga in Ponta Delgada and the Azores.

It was born from the aspiration of two dedicated practitioners, Joana Cadete and Paulo Andrade, who continue to periodically present us with their experience and deep knowledge through intensive classes, workshops and retreats.

Currently, under the direction of Alexandra Afonso, the Yoga Studio - Prana Vinyasa - Azores, keeps alive this ancient tradition and it is a huge privilege to follow the practitioners in their journey.

“May this practice awaken your roots, open your instinctual body, find your sacred place in the present moment. Move like a flowing river, let your breath be your teacher.”

Alexandra Afonso

Alexandra Afonso

Yoga has been present in my life from a very early age. I started by practicing alone through a book, and I had a hard time finding a teacher and a method with which I could identify myself. It was much later in 2000, while living in Paris, that I found Ashtanga Yoga with Caroline Bollinger. Upon returning to Lisbon, I continued to practice, first Ashtanga Yoga with Isa Guitana, and then Dynamic Hatha Yoga with Professor Carlos Rui Ferreira with whom I took the 3-year Instructor Course of the Portuguese Yoga Center, having been certified in 2011.

I also certified with the 200 hours Yoga Instructor Course at Yoga Alliance UK with Marco Peralta. And the Unnata Aerial Yoga Instructor Course, with Montze Lominchar.

I started teaching Dynamic Yoga in 2010 and Aerial Yoga in 2013. In recent years I gave two Dynamic Hatha Yoga Practical Courses and a Personal Practice Development Course.

I think that the search for knowledge, personal development and the expansion of consciousness, is a project of life that has no end. And from this point of view, I participate regularly in courses, workshops and retreats, highlighting: Development of Personal Practice, Introduction to Meditation, and Pranayama, with Carlos Rui Ferreira; Ashtanga Yoga, with Tomás Zorzo; Vinyasa Flow with Fleur Van Hille; Satva Yoga, with Gustavo Ponce; Vedanta, with Joana Cadete and Swami Suddhananda; Vipassana meditation; and Zazen Meditation, with Zen Master Barbara Kosen.
