The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali, widely regarded as the authoritative text on yoga, is a collection of aphorisms, outlining the eight limbs of yoga. These "threads" (as sutra translates from Sanskrit) of wisdom offer guidelines for living a meaningful and purposeful life. The eight limbs of yoga, yama (abstinences), niyama (observances), asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breath control), pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation) and samadhi (absorption)”, will be the subject of this week. Considering that the only words written by Patanjali as the asanas were, ‘sthira sukham asanam’, which means firm and comfortable. The intention will be to understand how to integrate this method/discipline into modern life and practice. In each asana a state of deep concentration should be sought until it reaches a possible meditative state. Thanks to Patanjali it is possible to experience it.

The 108 project was born from the intention to provide the teachings of traditional yoga disciplines in a beautiful environment conducive to satisfying our passions. 108 House is located in a peaceful and quiet closed community by the ocean, within walking distance of the stunning coastline of Ericeira. Enjoy and be inspired by the surrounding nature or get lost in Ericeira’s lively and narrow back roads just walking distance from the house. Relax under the breeze on the terrace at daytime or leave your room door slightly open at night and let yourself lull by the sound of the ocean. The guesthouse can accommodate up to 15 people in 4 rooms; one independent shared room with a kitchenette accommodates up to 6 people, one smaller shared room accommodates 4 people, one triple room and one suite for 2 people. All the rooms have terraces facing the coastline, town and ocean.

An open area with a big table is available in the back of the house - an ideal place to share food, drinks, and conversation.
