The Team

We are privileged to have the team of talented and experienced teachers that we have at the Shala. Our teachers have had years of personal practice combined with many years experience teaching. All of them share a deep love and respect for the practices and a passion for sharing their knowledge. They teach from the heart, without judgement or ego, bringing their own unique style of teaching and their own individual strengths.
