My Classes and the program of Sri Yoga Shala are inspired by my interest in Stillness, Space, Awareness, Movement, Magic, Creation, Collaboration and Community. 

Before moving to Sri Lanka, the country of my origin, I studied Political Science, Sociology, Contemporary Dance and Yoga in Germany - the country I grew up.

In 2015 SRI YOGA SHALA was born.  A center for Yoga, Mediation, Movement and Bodywork where I aim to create a diverse program - consisting of all the different things I have been studying so far - with strong focus of physical, sociological and entrepreneural alignment. 

My first formal Yoga Teacher Training was in 2007, held in Berlin - In the meantime I studied with many different teachers and in many different places - at the Krishnamarchaya Institute, in Mysore and Rishikesh, with David Swenson, Louisa Sear, Clive Sheridan, Ana Forrest, Sally Kempton, Sianna Sherman and others..... I am E-RYT 500 YA certiefied. 



With respect and curiosity for the living art and ritual of yoga, I have had the privilege of studying under many amazing teachers in different styles – completing the RYT 500 at Radiantly Alive with Daniel Aaron and Edward Clarke (Tripsichore) in Ubud Bali - with a focus in advanced sequencing and Prenatal Vinyasa. Having further spent time deepening my understanding of the chakra system, Ayurveda and meditation techniques with Shiva Rea and Demetri Velisarius in Los Angeles and India; and many hours of self exploration on and off the mat at home. This practice has taken me to many trainings, workshops, retreats, classes, beaches, rooftops, parks and decks around the world.

Above all I feel a deep curiosity about our human capacity and creative potential and feel humbled to share the essence of my findings in the form of  Sattvic Vinyasa here in Sri Lanka.

Wishing you loving kindness on your path,




Nazareno, born and raised in Uruguay, is a passionate surfer, international yoga teacher and co-founder of Inspiro Yoga. He's based in Ericeira, Portugal.

As he travelled in Asia in 2004 he found the practice of Ashtanga Yoga, which required full concentration, body awareness and commitment. Through meditation, studying yoga philosophy and experimenting more and more with his body and mind – he realised that he was capable of much more than he’d ever thought. “My practice has changed a lot over the years and now days I combine my yoga practice with surfing and find that they complement each other very well” he says.

Nazareno completed his first 200 hrs Teacher Training with Tribe Yoga in Goa, India in 2011. Since then he’s been teaching yoga full time in Bali, Sweden and along his travels through Europe and Asia. In 2013, while teaching at Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio in Ubud Bali, he completed their 300 hours Vinyasa Teacher Training as well as Swaha Kids Teacher Training.

In Nazas classes you can expect to be guided through playful yet sometimes challenging sequences where you work through the whole body finishing off with a well deserved Savasana.



In my classes you can expect slow and strong Vinyasa Flow sequences drawing inspiration from different styles of yoga and teachers I've learnt from.  Sometimes I share a poem in class, put on a yummy playlist, invite free flowing movement and other times more structure and silence. Every class is different from the other. Thats what I love about Vinyasa Flow - the endless creativity and freedom it gives me. 

As much as I like to invite students to play and challenge themselves - I always tell students to listen to their bodies and stay true to their practice -  not comparing themselves to others. 

In addition to Vinyasa Flow and Hatha yoga, I also teach Yin, Restorative and and Hatha Yoga.

Lisa Andersson Rhodiner (SWE) is a E-RYT 200 Yoga Alliance certified Vinyasa Flow (RADIANTLY ALIVE 2012) and Hatha yoga teacher (HIGH VIBE 2017) based in the seaside town of Ericeira, western Portugal. Since graduating from her first teacher training in Bali in 2012 she's been teaching yoga full time - offering classes, workshops and retreats in both Europe and Asia, as well as taught at a number of international yoga festivals and events.

Over the past 10 years, I dedicated my life to developing my spiritual and holistic practices, combining several modalities to help an individual who would like to take their health into their own hands, as I did. This is how I coach any individual who needs guidance to take care of him- or herself, discover real happiness and real peace and share my knowledge by teaching different type of classes.



Monica grew up in London; she's lived and travelled all over the world and now resides in Sri Lanka. She has been practicing yoga for over two decades and is trained as a certified Vinyasa flow yoga alliance instructor. She completed her training with Louisa Sear and Byron Bay Yoga Arts. Monica brings a passionate and energetic spirit to her classes  where she explores diverse yoga, breath-work and meditative practices. She has worked with surfers and yogis of all levels and tailors her techniques to suit the group, leaving students focused and revitalized by the end of the session.

My journey has been evolving since my early childhood. I have been dancing, teaching and performing oriental dances for 15 years. As I have developed my body awareness from different dances, contact improvisation, integral thai chi and other flow movement therapies, I slowly shifted to my yoga journey. First I was connecting from the perspective of asanas, then made an approach from ancient texts and philosophies during my university studies.

I have realized that the only person I can anchor in, is myself. Yoga and meditation are a never ending self-discovery and an every day transformation. All of life is a constant spontaneous process, moments weaving new moments. We are co-creators in this never-ending work of art. Every time we invest our energy, we create a ripple that affects the whole consciousness.

Yoga is a way to find the connection to and stay in touch with your truest self and moving the high vibe of unconditional love through each and every cell in your body. Yoga heals you and connects you to pure joy. It is meant for everybody and once you have started, you will feel the impact of yoga in your life.

An amazing yoga shala. It’s stunningly beautiful, set in lush jungle. The infinity pool is perfect for a pre or post class dip. I had the pleasure of attending classes and workshops during the last full moon, fantastic! World class teachers who taught with a lot of soul. A must to return to.

Incredible place to practice, a slice of heaven. I was lucky enough to be there when the amazing Heidi Goldman was teaching and wow what an introduction to Iyengar .
Vinyasa with the beautiful Yamuna Devi was breathtaking. Yin with Jessimun was fabulous and Core flow with Monica was fun . Each class followed by cinnamon tea then a swim in the infinity pool. A truly magical place that I look forward to visiting next year.

Highly recommended. The Shala is in a lovely setting and is beautiful with wooden floor and open sides for the breeze. The Vinyasa flow class I went to was great- and the teacher was excellent and gave you lots of confidence. I was disappointed I was only passing through so couldn’t have stayed for more classes
