EARLYMADE — BHAVIKA YOGA CLASSES AT THE BLACK BOX / GARDEN
Classes are given at our BLACK BOX surrounded by smooth lights in a darer more introspective environment in the Winter Season and at our URBAN FARM GARDEN in the Summer Season (depending on weather conditions), with special classes at the times of the Solstices.
Upon buying your class ticket or class bundle, a member of our team will contact you with the current schedule for you to join us at your best convenience.
You can also visit our INSTAGRAM account @earlymadecedofeita or @bhavika.yoga for up-to-date information on our yoga classes and current schedule at the time.
Classes run usually for 60 minutes, including a series of postures practiced to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body. Breathing techniques and meditation are also integrated. You can expect an emphasis on simplicity, repetition, and ease of movement with a balanced integration of asanas (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), mantra (chanting or reciting), mudra (hand gestures), shatkriyas and shatkarmas (cleansing techniques), and ultimately mediation at large and types of visualisation.
Classes have a maximum location of 6 people with more than 2 meters distance between yoga mats and the space is ventilated throughout the class. Yoga mats are carefully sanitised after each use and, if you feel more comfortable, you can bring your own to class.
At the beginning of each class, you might be requested to measure your temperature during the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic emergency plans.
According to the guidelines of the Portuguese Health Authorities (DGS), Turismo de Portugal awarded us the CLEAN AND SAFE seal, promoting good hygiene and safety practices, which EARLYMADE CEDOFEITA is committed to maintain to its highest standards, for the health of all.
We are strong.
We are beautiful.
We just need to believe in ourselves.
Bhavika was born from a dream that two friends shared; two soul sisters on a quest for a better place for everyone. Bhavika is a Sanskrit name for girls meaning sentimental but also honest, righteous, well-meaning and cheerful expression.
Given to us at our arrival at the training center in Rishikesh in India, Bhavika couldn’t be a better name to define what we are and what we want to bring to our community. As if, the universe saw through us even before knowing us.
With the will to bring back our teachings to our hometowns of Lisboa and Porto, we wanted to keep the essence of yoga in its core. Sharing and uniting individuals to a universal consciousness while keeping classes accessible to everyone in a simple and genuine manner.
Catarina is our calm force. Like the moon, she is the mind, the thinker of Bhavika.
Down to earth with an extreme will of providing a better place for everyone, she thinks that one can make a difference. “Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something” would be her motto in life.
At Bhavika, Susana is the embodied fierceness. Like this luminous celestial body that is the sun, she is a ball of fire and joy. With a heart of gold, she thinks that it is in our darkest moments that we may find "the true strength of the brilliant light within ourselves, that can never, ever be dimmed".
The classes at EARLYMADE are instructed by Susana and, occasionally, by Catarina, traveling directly from Lisbon for the class.
