Quinta da Calma is the Integral Yoga Teacher Training Centre for Europe, in association with the Satchidananda Ashram of Virginia, USA. It is also the base for The School of Life, a Centre for holistic healing, learning and spiritual growth, open to and embracing the essence of all traditions and teachings, but attached to none. The School of Life was founded on Integral Yoga's philosopy of a love for nature, natural foods and healing and the firm belief that it is the birthright of each individual to be healthy, joyful and peaceful. With this vision in mind, we offer teacher training programmes and a variety of all-level Integral Yoga Hatha classes, breathing practices, Kirtan and meditation, plus regular workshops and seminars in yoga philosophy. The Centre also offers healing treatments, training programmes and relaxing get-aways. Our natural, holistic approach is based on the understanding that we are made up not only of mind and body, but also of spirit.
