THE FULL STORY
It all started with a dream to redefine wellness... a response to the growing importance of self-care and the need of adapting to a new mindset embodying Wellness & Sustainability.
Here at Akasa we take seriously the old adage that says “Healthy mind and a healthy body” because we believe that our bodies are a temple for our mind, body and soul.
Nestled in a garden in the middle of a concrete jungle, we wanted to propose an alternative, a “sanctuary” where you can re-connect with your inner-self and thrive in your health & wellness journey. A shelter designed to make the practice of Yoga, Pilates and other Holistic activities accessible to all, from beginners to advanced level, no exception!
We created a unique place that offers high-standard Yoga, Pilates & a variety of Holistic practices with bespoke classes & schedule custom-made for your active lifestyle.
We are offering traditional classes in the morning and evening along with alternatives for busy urban residents who wishes to exercise during the day, a break from the office with a few short classes at a tailor-made price.
Our “space” is a place you come to release, reflect and recharge before, after or during an active day.
The word ākaśa, in ancient Sanskrit – classical Indian language still used in yoga to define poses and practices - means Space, one of the 5 elements of nature.
In Latin & derived current languages (such as the Portuguese of our Brazilian founder’s) “Casa” means "House". Our name reflects our purpose of creating family-like foundations for our community.
The Tree in our logo is a symbol of growth and strength. A sense of feeling connected as well as an inspiration of evolving towards a better health and fulfilling inner peace.

MEET OUR FOUNDER TALITA...
Opening a yoga studio felt like a natural next step for me. A decision that was driven by a deep passion and purpose and a true calling that I had for years. While I was progressing in my corporate career, I found myself feeling unfulfilled and disconnected from my true self. I knew that there was something more that I was meant to do, something that would allow me to feel balanced and centered.
The practice of yoga has always been a source of fulfillment to me for its benefits to the mind, body, and soul. It has helped me to find balance and inner peace in my own life, and I knew that I wanted to share this practice with others.
So, I took a leap of faith and left my corporate job to pursue my dream of designing a place that would match my philosophy and conviction. Something that I would share with others to help them find the same sense of calm and equilibrium that I found through yoga and other holistic practices myself. I poured my heart and soul into creating a space that would inspire and uplift anyone who entered through the door, a place where people could reconnect with themselves and with the community around them.
I am proud to have achieved the first milestone of this new adventure, and I am excited to see the positive impact that it will have on your own personal journey.
See you soon on the mat!
