The Om Space is a bright, breezy sanctuary in Colombo 5 which holds 15+ yoga classes every week.
Teachers, all internationally trained and certified, teach a range of styles including Sivananda, Hatha, Vinyasa Flow and Kundalini, kids yoga, yoga for sports as well as pre-natal yoga.
Also on offer: Reiki, Reflexology and Singing Bowl Massage, all part of the suite of services to soothe mind body and spirit.

The space, fully equipped with changing rooms, showers and lockers, can fit up to 20 yoga mats for each class. Clad in turquoise and white, the chic interiors were lovingly decorated by Burgess, from upholstering chairs to hand-painting upcycled lockers.

Here’s a range of school supplies ready to be delivered to the WP/Jaya Vidyawardhana Vidyalaya School in Wellampitiya, where many of the families were hit by the floods and are still struggling to make sure their children have the basic requirements to go to school. We have a whole bunch of teeny tiny school shoes on order to go along with this little collection.
Reiki is the channelling of the magnetic energy of Earth, to balance your personal energy centres, for well being.
It is a therapeutic practice that can address specific physical or emotional complaints or be used to simply rejuvenate and bring harmony back to your system.
