From the founders Daniella and Charlie, “We wanted to give the practitioners the very best shala experience to teach in. When we were designing the hotel space layout we had the opportunity to host a gathering, amongst our beach coconut palms, of indigenous leaders from both Central and North America. This session confirmed our building intuition and so the shala became the first structure.”
