Doing what feels good
Yogadocent Pamela Heesbeen - Manuhutu in Portugal, de Algarve

Pragmatic yoga

I’m Pamela, a yoga teacher based in Bordeira, Portugal. I offer private yoga lessons for groups or individuals, as well as online group yoga classes in Dutch.

I teach in an informative, no-nonsense, and pragmatic way. I’m not interested in forcing you into any particular pose. Instead, I’ll help you to find the pose that feels right for you.

Is that a way that speaks to you? You´re very welcome to give it try and I would love to hear from you. 

A gentle approach

On the path to your energizers

My classes are a great way to relax, relieve stress, and improve your overall health and well-being. Whether you’re looking to improve your flexibility, strength, or balance, or simply want to find a way to connect with your body and mind, I can help you reach your goals.

I believe that yoga is for everyone, regardless of your age, fitness level, or experience. My classes are designed to be gentle and accessible, so that you can focus on your breath and alignment, and find your own unique way to connect with your body.


Without the fluff
Pregnancy massage Yogarve


Nothing makes a baby grow like a relaxed mother. This unique massage works as relief from ailments but is also a bliss for your relaxation.

A pregnancy massage increases your blood flow, (re)connects your mind with your body, and gives you more breath and space. A wonderful moment for yourself, while you enjoy it together.

Key benefits

Relieves back pain

Nothing as tiring as back pain. With a little TLC for this area, you feel relieved and more energised. 

Reduces stress

Massage can help to reduce stress by stimulating the release of endorphins, which have mood-boosting effects.

Improves circulation

This will help your blood flow which is good especially if you have swollen ankles, feet or hands or pain in your joints (signs of water retention).

Feel more flexible

Ah yes, because your muscles are being stretched not only will you feel a bit taller, it will feel like you have more air and improved range of motion. 

Sweet dreams

The soothing, relaxing pregnancy massage will help you sleep better by relaxing the body and mind, and reducing stress levels.

Final Result

Just being in the moment. If all feels right, so you can totally surrender.

Without much fuss…simply being there. Having your body moved without you doing anything. Feeling save enough to have your mind wander, while your body relaxes.

By just feeling what is happening, your head can take a break.

Online Yoga

There´s no place like your own

Yoga online has quite a few positive benefits that make it easier to hold that time for yourself:

– online classes save you travel time!

– there is more focus on yourself

– from your place, so you already feel at home

– no peer pressure (or the smell of the neighbor’s toes)

– do the lesson later (again) when it suits you

– no one hears that little fart that escapes during your forward bend!

Your place, or mine?

Wherever you feel best

Where we meet is totally up to you. This will be your time, your ´me-time´.

Is it easier to relax at home, or do you want a break from your daily routine? For me, both works! My focus is to help you relax, just tell me the place and the time.

We either meet up in downtown Aljezur, or I will come visit you in Carrapateira, Bordeira, Alfambras, Aljezur or Rogil.
