SURROUNDING - ARRIFANA / ALJEZUR, PORTUGAL

The Dawn Collective Shala is located between the picturesque fishermen-village of Arrifana (2 km) and  Aljezur (7 km). This is the street on Google Maps where the Shala will open in June. The beautiful beaches and cliffs of Arrifana, Monte Clerigo and Amoreira are easy to access and in Aljezur you will find everything you need like supermarkets, cafés & restaurants, an organic shop and a charming local farmers market on saturdays.

 

The magical landscape of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park with vast sandy beaches, great surf and a djungelish hinterland allows for easy summer days & moments of deep relaxation. And in the Dawn Collective Shala you can also spoil yourself and book a massage treatment.

 

ABOUT ANNA ROSSOW.

The daily practice of yoga keeps Anna on the path of introspection and inspiration. She has practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois for almost two decades. Anna feels very lucky having been able to learn from todays most respected teachers amongst others Richard Freeman, Nancy Gilgoff, Chuck Miller and Maty Ezraty. For years her regular teacher, Cole Dano in Finland, has guided her to find an optimal way of practice.


Anna is fascinated by the Method of Ashtanga Yoga which reveals the blind spots and knots of our body-mind connection. Besides Yoga she has learned osteopathy at the international academy of Osteopathy for over five years. With her precise eye Anna can guide each student to get out of unhealthy movement patterns and to built a rewarding and healing way to practice.
