In times of constant acceleration and too many stimuli, practicing yoga helps to develop the attention, focus, and discernment. The regular practice of exercises strengthens and stretches the body, improves breathing and sleep, and in the longer run adds an increased presence to the performance of daily activities. When incorporated to the routine, yoga comes to be a simple resource – since it can be practiced anywhere and comprises variations for all bodies and ages – of self-care and self-observation.
In 2020, the yoga practice at Casa do Povo takes place under a new format. Each session will be dedicated to the study of therapeutic postures oriented towards common health issues.
The first part of each session is reserved to the practice of basic postures, working on the fundamentals of warming up, stretching, and firming up the body. Right after comes the studies around some therapeutic postures, according to the theme of each session – check the calendar below. It is important to remind that people with pre-existing health issues must have a medical follow-up, and that the practice of yoga does not replace other types of treatment.

How it works
- For each session, it is suggested a contribution of R$10 for those in charge of conducting the activity, in addition to an open contribution for Casa do Povo.
- No previous registration is required, you only have to show up 15 minutes before the beginning of the activity and wear comfortable clothes.
Important: the doors of Casa do Povo close at 9:30 am. After this hour, it is no longer possible to take part in the activity.
The yoga practice is conducted by Mariza Nakaozi, Paula Ordonhes, and Roberta Maran, experienced yoga practitioners and regular students of Luciana Brandão.
