Welcoming Shemali Weerasinghe to The Om Space



Shemali is a certified yoga teacher trained in Rishikesh, India. She is a graduate and full time practitioner of Chinese Medicine and a member of the British Acupuncture Council. Over the years, yoga has become an integral part of her life and she loves to share this practice with anyone who is keen to explore for themselves the benefits that yoga has to offer. Shemali brings both her fun loving nature and her deep connection to natural healing to her yoga classes. To all her students she has this to say – “Yoga requires nothing of you but to be present. To be with yourself in this practice that is yours; a practice that is in no way limited to the asana (postures of yoga), pranayama (working with breath) or any other technique. Yoga is when you are in union, mind, body and soul”.

Shemali will be taking the Thursday 8.30am beginners class and the 10am ladies class for the summer.
