Shakti Sharanam Yoga Shala is a small, environmentally sustainable school in Crestone, Colorado. The Shala is dedicated to upholding traditional yogic practices through prescribed techniques and conscious lifestyle. These practices are now threatened worldwide, and many are being lost to commercialization.
Annie Pace, the center’s founder, has spent much of the last 27 years in India, immersing herself in the yogic sciences of ayurveda, music, cooking, and philosophy. She is an elder in her lineage and is skilled in distilling her decades of knowledge and experience into simple and applicable teachings for practitioners of all levels, and from all walks of life. The Shala project was carefully created with the intention to exemplify yogic living and pass on the teachings in an intimate and authentic way.
It integrates the ancient yogic life principles with contemporary sustainable systems, including the use of solar energy and natural building materials. Shakti Sharanam offers ongoing weekly classes by donation, as wall as private instruction, yoga therapy, weekend intensives, and monthly study programs. Annie also provides instruction to local and visiting school, retreat, and pilgrimage groups.
