SCHOOL OF PRANA offers Yoga and Breathwork practices that help us connect with our inner peace, and joy in the present moment. Prana is sanskrit for life force or energy. Asanas, Pranayamas, and Healing Breathwork help us move stuck energy and take us out of the worries of the past or future and into the power of the now.


What kind of Yoga and Breathwork


Our Yoga is traditional Hatha, from the line of Swami Sivananda and Swami Satyananda. It includes postures, yogic breathing, deep relaxation, and meditation. The Healing Breathwork we guide comes from a few western teachers and combines scientific and shamanic knowledge of breath medicine. All sessions are suitable for beginners.


Where are we


We are residents at a creative hub in Lisbon, the base of Live Content, Luvin, and other agencies right by Santos Train Stop. We are on Number 78, R. da Cintura do Porto de Lisboa, 1200-109 Lisboa.

What people say

"I cherish how much Rio cares about those he works with, how precise he is with language, and how he manages to take his clients on a journey towards insight and ultimately growth. And he always does so with a smile! Thank you, Rio!"

"I felt a lot of energy moving in my body, a tingling sensation all over and finally I traveled to a place that I can't describe yet. Maybe it was my subconscious, maybe it was a meeting with my higher self. I like Rio's approach, the instructions were clear and he created a beautiful safe space where to experience the unexpected. The music he put together was also amazing and it really shaped the overall experience. Thank you Rio!"
