Profile

In 2003 I visited Moinhos Velhos as a guest taking part in the juice fasting programme, the first of many visits, and it changed my life!

Feeling renewed, refreshed and inspired after the juice fast, I left my job and took my first yoga teacher training course with the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre. I went on later to train in Pregnancy Yoga, Yoga for Children & Teenagers, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Yoga Psychology and various holistic therapies.

I have now been practicing yoga for almost 30 years and teaching yoga and meditation since 2003, drawing on my extensive experience of different yoga traditions. I seek to provide students with a safe, supportive environment in which to explore their true Self and develop their own daily yoga and meditation practice.

My previous career in sales, marketing and business management now seems a distant memory, but has proved invaluable in establishing a very successful Yoga & Therapy Centre in the UK, which I ran for the 12 years, until moving to the Algarve to work at Moinhos Velhos

Profile

A word from Ines herself…

My name is Ines, from Germany and I trained in reflexology and chiropody at the school of Thomas Wadler, which alongside medical training specializes in treatments for the feet. I had a wonderful time and was blessed with a very competent and loving teacher. During the 27 years I have lived in Portugal I have combined bringing up a family with a growing interest in holistic healing and complementary therapies. I’ve always lived in community in the countryside close to nature, and enjoy working in my garden. My special passion was to listen to and study wildlife – absorbing myself in collecting wild herbs and getting a deeper understanding for herbal medicine. I’ve gained experience in a range of healing methods, like Reiki, Meditation, Quantum Energy Flow and especially the Bach Flower remedies which have helped me in difficult times to balance my emotions. I like to be with people and have a strong sense of compassion. I’ve been practicing for 20 years for an international clientele in the Algarve and my work becomes love in action. I hope to create a healing space for you where you can relax, restore energy and gain from a good feeling by allowing the miraculous human organism to find it’s own path to true health. I like to see the light in everybody.
