Chill Spot @ ShangriLa
Stop by our sacred Chill Spot! ShangriLa is known as an imaginary remote paradise on earth, utopia so to speak. Also known as a distant and secluded hideaway, usually of great beauty and peacefulness. Our group is very much looking forward to create an ambiance and space where people from all over the world can spend the entire day hanging out. A “ShangriLa,” by extension, is an ideal refuge from the troubles of the world...also known as Burning Man / Home :-) - We would be thrilled if you come on over and hang out!

Heavenly Yoga @ ShangriLa
We are very happy to have Almond teach again @ ShangriLa!
Almond will be teaching Heavenly Yoga classes. Sleep off that hangover and enjoy a yoga class at a suitable time after coffee and bacon and dancing in the morning sun. We will promise that you will depart from tightness and arrive in a state of bliss! The sensitivity we develop on our yoga mats effects everybody around us. Slowly yogi by yogini we can shift the direction the world is taking. This includes the gifts of peace, harmony, laughter, and love. The Buddah saiys: "To keep your body in good health is a duty - otherwise we shall not be able to keep our minds strong and clear."

Heavenly Yoga is a mixture between the Hot Yoga poses and the Power Vinyasa asanas. A great combination of both practices and an excellent way to get into the flow routine and explore the benefits of movement and breath. Heavenly Yoga offers the perfect mixture of strength, flexibility and relaxation.
Chanting the Gayatri Mantra @ ShangriLa
The Gayatri Mantra is one of the oldest known mantras in human history. It was forbidden to women for a long time. It is said that chanting the Gayatri Mantra purifies the chanter and purifies the listener, it removes all obstacles in our path to increase wisdom, happiness and spiritual growth. Come and chant with us this mantra for 108 repetitions. Why 108? It has been said that the number 108 has been a sacred number in the yoga world. We believe by chanting this mantra during Burning Man, you will find what you are looking for!
