The beautiful teachers at The Om Space

I keep telling everyone about our internationally qualified yoga teachers and how they each bring so much to The Om Space from their beautiful energy, their talented contributions to the day to day running (and decorating! thank you ladies xx) and of course their wonderfully varied teaching lineages and different approaches and styles, which altogether makes The Om Space a fantastic place for any Yogi or Yogini to hang out!!! Here’s a little about each of them: Director of The Om Space, Serena’s discovery of yoga began with a chance encounter with a teacher who inspired and...

And the Butterfly takes flight

Sorry for the radio silence. The last three weeks have been a blur of shopping, decorating, up-cycling and generally setting up The new Om Space! We have finally opened our doors in a very limited way to our existing yogis and yoginis and to the most wonderful team of 5 internationally qualified yoga teachers. I promise I will let you know who each and every one of them are in detail and their styles of yoga very shortly, but this post is to give you a peek into the new space (Finally we get to the after pictures!!!) and show you our lovely full schedule with lots of times and lots of...

We are at Cocoon stage!

We have definitely moved from Caterpillar to Cocoon stage in this development. The place is looking cleaner and brighter and I can now actually visualise people using The Om Space and doing yoga in the Shala! We are not yet finished and aside from the re-furbishments there are many other logistical and administrative things to put in place. But slowly, slowly and step by step we will get there! I just thought I would put some more pictures up to show you how it is coming along! The Yoga Shala Our Changing Rooms have partitions! My upcycled lockers Before and After. And our outside access...

Abundance, Ganesha and my Mum

Abundance: a profusion, a great plenty, a fullness to overflowing Dictionary.com. “Abundance is not about how much you have, but how you feel about what you have.” Ganesha: the widely revered Remover of obstacles, the Lord of Beginnings, the Lord of Success. Also worshiped as the God of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. Wikipedia and about.com/hinduism My Affirmation: My former beliefs were a delusion created by the limiting beliefs of our society. I now realise the strength of my creative energy and as my energy evolves, abundance will automatically infuse my life. I...

From there to here. How did that happen?

If you told me in 2003, when I started my yoga teacher training, or even two years ago when I moved to Colombo with my family, that I would be here, in May 2013 embarking on a project to open a dedicated yoga space, I would not have believed it possible. But here I am. There is so much to do! From refurbishing the building to preparing class schedules and marketing materials! We started the refurb about 3 weeks ago and are aiming to be open in July. Here are some “Before” pictures to let you see what a mammoth task we have ahead of us. Our Reception area The Yoga Shala Our...
