Accommodation

The feeling in Shambala is that of being a community space. For this reason you will be expected to share a room with a fellow yogi. Unless otherwise stated in your booking, the couples will be placed randomly but of the same gender. This is a wonderful opportunity to have deep connections that could otherwise have never been planned.

The types of accommodation are as follows:

  • Twin shared
  • Triple shared
  • Four-bed dorm

Twin rooms can be booked as single rooms with an extra surcharge when available. All accommodation has shared showers and bathrooms.

Program

The weekend starts with a dinner out on the deck overlooking the sunset over the lake. After the dinner, you will wake up your bodies with some soft AcroYoga - then you celebrate the start of an amazing weekend with a kirtan together in the big shala.

Saturday morning starts with a yoga class, followed by breakfast and some good hours of AcroYoga. A delicious vegetarian lunch is served and then there is the possibility to have a dip in the lake, stretch out in the sun, or walk in the forest.

In the afternoon, you load yourself up with more AcroYoga and top it off with a great dinner. In the evening, you can sing some more bhajans, go in the sauna and take a swim, light a fire, or why not do it all!

On Sunday, there will be more acro, more yoga, more great food.
