Leon Sanchez Alvarez
We are super happy to welcome Leon to our teaching team. He will be taking intermediate classes on Tuesday and Thursday!
Leon is a RYT200 Yoga Alliance certified Hatha Vinyasa Yoga teacher & RYT200 Yoga Alliance certified Kundalini Yoga teacher.
He started to get in contact with mindfulness meditation 10 years ago, as a way to deal with the challenges of a fast paced modern lifestyle. Coming from a martial arts background and being a movement enthusiast, in 2013, Leon started to explore Yoga first through physical practice, and quickly got interested in the deeper layers that this beautiful ancient practice has to offer.
While his classes sometimes can get sweaty, flowy and dynamic, he puts strong emphasis on the energetic and self-explorative aspects of Yoga. Leon strongly believes that through a regular practice, everyone can minimise self-imposed mental confusions and obstacles, allowing an unobstructed and loving view on one's own, humanity's and life's beauty and purest essence.
When not doing his own practice or thinking about good food, you will most probably find Leon at the nearest beach doing Acro Yoga, cuddling a dog or trying to body-surf the next wave.

Shenuka is a RYT 200 Yoga Teacher registered with Yoga Alliance and a certified Reki
Practitioner for energy healing and is certified to teach Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa Flow and Yin Yoga.
She first came to yoga for the physical benefits hoping become more fit. As her body
became stronger and healthier, she soon discovered that her yoga mat was a place to find a
sense of contentment, self awareness and mind body connection. As a teacher, she realizes that yoga is not a "one size fits all" practice, and that every person is on a different path.
She tries to offer her students the opportunity to take that path in their own way at their own pace, to modify when needed and to honor how they feel at all times. She teaches a creative and energetic vinyasa flow class that combines movement with breath and expression.
Shenuka will be teaching the General Level classes 8.15 - 9.15 am on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. We are so excited to welcome her and have her gentle energy in our space.
Sri Lanka's Earth Guardians are a group of young people ages 8-14 who are fighting to save our planet and they have just launched their tree planting project!
Their aim is to raise rs 750,000 to plant 1500 trees of 25 different species on a piece of land in Habarana that has bee allocated for re-forestation. Each tree will cost rs500 which includes the purchase, transport, preparation of the land and care as well as a salary to the women in the local community which is above the government's current pay for the same work.
If you would like to sponsor a tree (or some) please contact us at The Om Space and we will be happy to make the connection for you.
The children have also started a petition for the Supermarkets in Sri Lanka to take steps to stop the use of single use plastic bags at the checkouts and at the fruit, veg and meat counters.
If you agree that this is a cause worth fighting for or are just interested in what they have to say, please do go to the link, sign and share and together hopefully we will have some success and take a small step towards saving our beautiful home - Earth.
You can follow them on Face book or Instagram @earthguardiansrilanka
Here's what we made in Children's Class
We've been discussing the state of our Planet this term and exploring ways in which we a group of pre-teens can make a difference. We settled on Straws and spent a little time in each of our yoga classes scripting and planning these short videos. Thanks to all of our children for their brilliant ideas and for writing the script and special thanks to Eran Sanderatne for his fabulous and creative editing. Click All videos to play the Intro and then the second one for Part 1 of our series. We hope you enjoy and are inspired to give up your plastic straws!!!
