Meet your yoga teacher

Hi, I'm Rai, a yoga teacher. I prefer not to talk extensively about myself, but if you've booked my retreat in January or are considering it, you should know what to expect!

In 2021, I dedicated a year to studying under one of Portugal’s finest instructors, completing a Yoga Alliance Certified 200-hour program in Ericeira, along with other significant courses related to yoga anatomy and the energetic body. I teach yoga classes in Europe, offering both online and in-person classes. My primary focus is on Vinyasa and Yin yoga, with an emphasis on body opening to create space for energy flow and to release stagnant energy and emotional baggage that we don’t want to carry

Before my journey into yoga, I felt lost both mentally and physically, struggling to find a motivating self-care routine. However, the discovery of breath work, meditation, yoga asanas, and philosophical aspects transformed my life. These practices not only reignited my self-motivation but also inspired me to become a yoga teacher, now my livelihood.

Prior to finding my passion for teaching, I navigated various career paths, leading to anxiety and depression. I couldn't identify what truly ignited my spirit or my purpose. Yoga played a significant role in helping me. Through tools like meditation, I reconnected with my inner self and reconciled with long-suppressed dreams. I recognized how I had strayed from my authentic aspirations by following others' paths, not my own.

Today, my purpose and mission are crystal clear. I serve as a bridge, connecting beautiful souls and fostering exceptional experiences in my classes and retreats. I empower individuals facing challenges to discover ease, purpose, and joy in life through yoga techniques rooted in science. 


It's beyond yoga on the mat. It's about coming together, creating meaningful connections, and growing personally!


This retreat - a few special days for myself filled with yoga, gratitude, mindfulness, and nature all around! I was blessed with peace and relaxation, and everything was filled with delightful attention to details and all the participants: the place, the accommodations, the food, the daily routine, and the little surprises. Thank you, I'd gladly do it again!


I had the most incredible experience at Rai’ yoga retreat in Douro🧘‍♀️ The daily yoga practices, soothing sound healing session, and scenic boat trip were amazing.

The daily variety of delicious vegetarian food was a treat for the senses, and the picnic were a highlight. The hikes offered breathtaking views, and the customized materials made every session special. The cozy and luxurious accommodation with stunning Douro River views added to the magic. Highly recommend this retreat for a holistic, rejuvenating escape!


Yoga classes with Rai are great. She is a fantastic teacher and the place in Douro is lovely. I always leave feeling balanced, like I’ve had a great workout, and calm! She always gives everything to the class which makes it special.
If you are a yoga begginner, class with Rai will be a great start - you can see easier and more advanced versions of each pose. Highly reccommend to anyone that wants to center themselves away from the busy city.

Would you like to get into the waiting list for the next retreat?
