Welcome to the Dawn Collective Shala - a place to slow down, breathe and simply be. We believe health is a recognition of balance, pleasure & self-care. An appreciation of natural cycles & attuning ourselves to them. At the Dawn Collective Yoga Shala we offer traditional practices with a contemporary touch to relax & strengthen the body, calm the mind & untie the nots around our hearts.


Join us for open yoga classes, Mysore intensive weeks, holistic massage treatments, community yoga & privates as well as trainings & workshops with local and internationally renowned guest teachers sharing their love for ashtanga yoga, meditation, singing, wholesome food and conscious living.

We are located in Vale da Telha / Arrifana, Portugal: Google-maps.
