SHAKTI SHARANAM YOGA SHALA
Shakti Sharanam Yoga Shala is located in the mountain community of Crestone, Colorado, a place known for its many spiritual centers as well as its stunning natural setting at the base of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Shakti Sharanam is a Sanskrit phrase meaning 'a refuge for sacred energy'.
The center is dedicated to upholding the purity of yogic tradition and exemplifying it as a life practice. Shakti Sharanam embodies a rare synthesis of ancient yogic principles and contemporary environmental sustainability. The project was intentionally designed from the ground up to host students for custom courses of study.
The straw-bale structures are powered and heated with solar energy and the natural building materials provide a pure environment for study and practice. Shakti Sharanam has been a long-time feature of the Crestone Energy Fair home tour, as well as part of the Camino de Crestone pilgrimage tour.
