Teachers:

PETRI RÄISÄNEN AND WAMBUI NJUGUNA-RÄISÄNEN

Petri studied energy healing and worked as an energy healer in the 1990’s, using the method which he learned from the Finnish folk healer masters. The energy-healing techniques are based on sensing and locating the blocks in the flow of energy throughout the body and then releasing and balancing the energy flow. Besides a healing treatments and self healing method the Energy healing techniques can be used in the asana adjustments and in your own practice. All the techniques are completely natural and simple, but need a deep concentration and one direction mind focus (ekagra). Petri has been teaching Energy healing workshops since 2000 and Ashtanga Yoga since 1991.   

Wambui studied Petri’s energy healing techniques while on retreat on Koh Mak from 2010-2014. She studied Chavutti Thirumal, massage by foot press, in 2013 with Helen Noakes. She has been practicing this unique form of massage therapy since then. In 2020, Wambui became certified in the Trauma Conscious Yoga Method and applies the principles of trauma-sensitive care in her treatments and yoga classes. In addition, Wambui’s advocacy work is held in the Yogic and Buddhist principles of interconnectedness: by healing the collective, we are able, in turn to heal ourselves as individuals.

Petri (Energy Healing / Folk Healing) and Wambui (Chavutti Thirumal) will both give a treatments during the workshop weeks. Please let us know if you are interested and we can set the time!

ACCOMODATION.

The Ashtanga Yoga and Energy Healing Intensive is a non residential Yoga course and students are asked to book their own accommodation. If you are staying around the shala close to Arrifana or Vale de Telha, you can easily walk or bicycle to the shala, shops and restaurants. The shala is located in the same building as the Arte Bianca Pizzeria (the best pizza in Algarve). 

You can choose from a great variety of accommodation..Airbnb houses and apartments, little cute motels and guesthouses. (different budgets and needs) within a 1 min walk to a 10 min. drive from the Dawn Collective Shala / the beach. As this is a popular destination we recommend to seek accommodation as early as possible. Please find further info and some recommendations here.     

SURROUNDING –  ARRIFANA / ALJEZUR, PORTUGAL.

The Dawn Collective Shala (Google Maps) is located between the picturesque Arrifana Beach (2 km) and Aljezur village (7 km), where you will find everything you need like supermarkets, cafés & restaurants, bakery, organic shops and a charming local farmers market on Saturdays.

The stunning and unspoiled beaches of Arrifana, Monte Clerigo and Amoreira allow for endless summer days & unreal sunsets. All beaches are easy to access and offer great surf conditions. The jungle-ish hinterland with magic forests of pine, eucalyptus and cork can be explored with nature walks, mountain bike or donkey/horse rides.

The Dawn Collective Shala has a wooden floor and catches the first rays of sun in the morning. Yoga mats, blankets and blocks are available as well as a big lawn to hang out after class, filtered water, tea and delicious espresso. Also massage treatments are available at the Dawn Collective Shala.

How To get there?

Faro airport is about 130 km from Arrifana and Lisbon airport 230 km. The easies way is to rent a small and inexpensive car from the airport and drive to the shala. Then you can explore easily the closest beaches, nature and villages. There is a bus from Sete Rios, Lisbon (https://www.busbud.com/en) for about 4 hours and 19€ to Aljezur. From Faro airport there is also a bus to Aljezur, but with many stops and one change (https://www.rome2rio.com/map/Aljezur/Faro-Airport-FAO). Ordered taxi cost about 130€ (normal car), which is not too bad if you are traveling with company. Faro airport has plenty of Rental car companies iff you are looking for a car for yourself or for share.
