Shala is Sanskrit for Home.
In yoga, it’s the space where meet to practice together. Our Shala was built out of reclaimed materials to minimise its
environmental impact: the roof is made of special photovoltaic panels that let the light through while producing clean energy.
The space is also used as a greenhouse for our citrus trees, and as a conference hall, dining room and auditorium for concerts,
readings and screenings. Our Shala was chosen as one of the 12 most beautiful in Europe as a testimonial for Manduka, a maker of outstanding yoga mats and materials.
