SHALA ZEN Practice outside
Imagine a wood terrace overlooking the sea right in the middle of a green and soft lawn.
That is our Shala Zen, a wide platform perfect for your yoga practice openair. The wood floor gives you the most comfortable support, and the top roof will protect you from the hot Sicilian sun. A gentle wind and the stunning view will make your yoga session the most relaxing and fulfilling experience ever.

SHALA OM Practice inside
When the sicilian sun hits too much or it is too windy outside, you may need to find a shelter.
This is what the Shala Om has been thought for: a cozy, shielded and quiet place to practice at any time of the day.
The old barn, with its high ceilings and thick walls, is divided into two twin rooms completely paved with wood and filled with natural light. Almost no garnish or furniture keeps this space open and clean.
Size: m.14 X m.5 ( 70 m.q. per room)
Capacity : 22 persons (11 per room)
Materials : wood/concrete
Facilities : light dimmer, bluetooth speakers, mats, blocks, belts, bolsters, pillows.
We are a farm in the middle of the countryside! That means there is beautiful nature all around for you to explore.
When in Zen Sicily you can wander among our plantations, diving into the most typical Sicilian flavors: olive, citrus, almond and carob trees growing healthy and majestic. Also you can stroll in the herb garden, where thyme, rosemary, oregano and all the wide herbs are blooming and prospering, for a real aroma therapy the Sicilian way. Here and there you may find an amazing spot to meditate, like our “Oblivion”, or maybe you can just sit in the patio and read a book under a sky full of stars.
All rooms have their own private patio for you to enjoy every moment of your stay.
We have different kinds of accomodation. Just ask and we will arrange beds according to your needs.
All rooms are equipped with kitchenette, air-conditioner, linen, hairdryer, bathroom with shower.
