Welcome to The Om Space, Colombo - see you on the mat!
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 Om Space is owned and run by British-born-Sri-Lankan yoga teacher, Serena Burgess and her mum, Mohanie Ahangama, an experienced reiki practitioner and owner of Pulse Beat Gym.
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.
We have placed our little postcards at some of our favourite places around town. Pick one up and give them to your friends. We have details for a daily practice on the back which will help get them started.
Rakshi will commence classes for children with Special needs from 5th September onwards. Classes will be held on Mondays from 4 – 5 pm. To register your interest as soon as possible please call 112 507515.
These yoga classes will provide a safe and loving environment for the children to exercise the body and mind, attain the developmental mile-stones and get a sense of their body and its functions in space. Yoga for the Special Child is gentle and therapeutic – safe for babies and children with Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Learning difficulties and other developmental disabilities. Breathing exercises, eye exercises, achieving correct body alignment and posture, asanas to work the spine and long muscles, and relaxation are some of the main components in a 30-45 min long yoga therapy session.
Rene comes from Malaysia. She stepped on to the yoga mat for the first time in 2004, whilst working in London, and has since experienced remarkable transformation in her life – It not only toned her body but provided her with the inner peace necessary to deal with the doubts in life.
What she loves about yoga is that it is a never ending practice where every practitioner has their own path and goals without the need to compete with one another. Through practising challenging postures she was humbled and constantly reminded to keep a beginner’s mind on and off the mat. Yoga has also taught her to cherish every moment and see the beauty in every situation.
In 2014, 2 years after returning to Asia, to mark a decade of practice, Rene decided to deepen her yoga study by undertaking a teacher training programme with Lance Schuler in Shanghai. Under Lance’s guidance, Rene reaffirmed her belief to stay true to herself and her practice by building a solid foundation with proper alignment.
Rene focuses on using alignment-oriented principles to help students exploring basic poses more deeply, and safely. You will learn the finer details of alignment as she shares her knowledge in class, ultimately bringing you an experience that bridges the body-mind complex and plants the seed of conscious living in you. Encouraging beginners is important to Rene, and she enjoys helping them to build a strong foundation on which to develop their practice.

Acupuncture is an ancient art of healing. It works on the basis of energy channels in our body. Whenever there is a block, deficiency or excess, it will give pain, discomfort, numbness, etc. One touch or one needle can relieve the blocks in the energy channels to alleviate the discomfort.
Come and experience for yourself some of the energy that fuels Serena’s busy life and find a balance in your own lives that will allow a significantly healthier and happier lifestyle.
All-inclusive from US$135 per person per night based on two people sharing. Single supplement applies.
