  • Description


    I am a 60 year old yoga teacher and shiatsu practicioner, I also have higher education in art: Artistic Anatomy. I have 7 sons and daughters that come and go, with stays spanning from a few days to 6 months. I'm practically vegan, passionate about animal well-being and I love painting and drawing. I have some cats and 3 dogs.

    I live in a hill where I try to develop a project of a self-sustaining community with permaculture practices, harnessing the energy of the wind and the sun, practicing and teaching yoga. Within the farm there are 2 villas and plenty of space to make camping. The land has 5500m2 and is a part of the Natura 2000 network, with very fertile soil throughout and rich in autochthonous trees. The Nabão river runs fresh a few meters away, with lots of shade (we are located 2kms away from its source in Agroal), a great place for canoeing. Along the river and also inland there are hiking trails, some leading to rock-climbing routes and to spectacular rock formations where bats can be observed in their habitats. It's 7km away from Tomar, an ancient templar town with interesting monuments to visit.

    Soy professora de yoga y pratico shiatsu shintai. Tengo formacion superior en arte: Anatomia Artística. Tengo siete hijos y tres nietos; no viven conmigo, solo me visitan. Vivo a 8 minutos de Tomar, ciudad templária (Convento de Cristo) en una finca muy cerca del rio Nabão (+/-100 mt), con 2 perras (Luna y Cavaleira) y 8 gatos, donde intento desarrollar un proyeto de comunidad autosustentable con practicas de permacultura, aprovechamiento de la energia del viento y del sol, practica y enseño de yoga. Dentro de la finca hay 2 moradias y espacio para hacer camping.
    Este lugar está aislado cerca de 3 km de otras moradias.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can teach Yoga, natural health therapies and cultivation of horticultural products in a place full of pure energy and pollution-free just minutes from a very rich city of historical heritage, esoterism and nature. In the nearby river Nabão can bathe and practice canoeing.
