the shala
Ganesha Yoga Shala is a a nice little sanctuary in the South of Phuket Thailand, where it is easy to focus on your yoga practice and close off your mind from daily chores and worries. The building is located in in a quiet residential lane in Rawai. It was purpose built in 2006 for small classes (10 to 15 people maximum,) where everyone is welcome to practise, from beginners to seasoned yogi's.

Easy to find, just follow the pink signs from the main road, into the shala. (Click here for Location & Map )



The shala will be closed from Saturday, September 6th (last class is 5:30pm on Friday September 5th) until Saturday October 11th, (first class back will be Sunday, October 12th at 9am) Julie will be in Mysore, India studying herself at this time. Keep practicing everyone!
