What makes Dharma Shala so special to you?
“When Dharma Shala first opened, I was living next door in the Big White House. At the time, it was the only official yoga school in Bondi and I was there the day it opened. Dharma Shala has provided me with a solid foundation for my personal yoga practice to blossom. I have witnessed the wonderful effect it has had on the local community. The Shala is a beautiful gathering space full of heart and soul. It’s a sacred place”.
