A yoga class while on holiday enables you to connect and drop into yourself. Here in the magical and volcanic Azores a yoga practice helps you to discover and feel more during your stay in this special place. Yoga teacher Rimi invites you to practice with intention. She has been practicing yoga over 20 years and trained with Ana Forrest, combining styles of Hatha and Yin yoga. In each class Rimi uses breath, asana and meditation to focus the practice around an intention. Classes are open to all levels and Rimi teaches a wide variety of levels, including yoga for people in wheelchairs to intermediate/advanced. Rimi can adapt a class for anyone to feel the benefits of connecting mind, body and spirit.

Yoga mats and props
I have been practicing yoga since 1999 and did my teacher training with Ana Forrest in 2008. I grew up in the US, the daughter of Indian-born parents and followed a traditional path to success. Thanks to yoga I chose to follow my soul's path of living a life of purpose and meaning and moved to the Azores in 2015. In addition to my yoga classes and events I co-own and run a sustainable orchard lodge as well as Yoga Azores.
Sitting on the slopes of the Fogo volcano, quinta minuvida orchard lodge celebrates the traditional fruit orchard, the quintessential Azorean getaway. Pratice amidst fruit trees in a sacred studio space. Classes also held oudoors in other spots in nature and around the island.
