Johanna HellingeR
yoga teacher & Thai yoga massage therapist


The name Yogana was created from the sanskrit word Yoga (which means "union" and "separation") and the last few syllables of my name Johanna.

I am a passionate traveller and surfer and have been practicing Yoga since 2005 until my travels brought me to the country of origin of Yoga. I undertook my Yoga teacher trainings in the beautiful Himalayan mountain province of Dharamsala and in the green Jungle of Goa in India.  I am excited to share my experience and the benefits of Yoga with you.

I am a qualified 500 RYT Yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance and have been teaching Yoga in Portugal and France since 2015.

I teach weekly classes at “Little Yoga Space Lisboa” and organise monthly Laughter Yoga workshops and Yoga and Surf days around Lisbon's beaches. 

From spring - autumn I also teach with Rooftop Yoga Lisboa in the beautiful parks and on rooftops in Lisbon.

Through Yoga I found a passion of working with bodies, structures and their energy systems. I trained with Hadadi School of Thai Massage in Lisbon and have been working as a Thai Yoga Massage Therapist since 2015.
