The Om Dome – Our Magnificent Yoga Hall!
It was always part of Vidya’s dream to create the most magnificent Yoga Hall in Europe. At Suryalila we already had two other yoga halls, one larger and one smaller. Both are beautiful halls.
It took us two and a half years to be ready to begin the Om Dome Project. We considered various different possibilities for a large free standing Yoga Hall. Finally we found an elegant solution. A friend suggested to check out Pacific Domes, a company which produces Domes for exhibitions as well as living spaces. We discovered a branch of Pacific Domes in Portugal and started communicating with them.
We have now designed and created a State of the Art Yoga Hall inside a beautiful geodesic Dome. It has been quite a labor of love to build it!
We started the work by launching an Indiegogo campaign to help us raise money to build it. We raised about one fifth of the actual cost with the Indiegogo campaign, which has been of immense help with the project. We are super grateful to everyone who worked on the campaign and who generously donated.
The Dome has an underfloor heating and cooling system, a state of the art sound system and atmospheric lighting. It is fully equipped with Manduka Pro Mats, blocks, straps, bolsters and eye pillows. We also have backjack floor chairs for trainings and lectures.
The outside of the Dome is being constructed to resemble a Nepalese temple with a golden stupa on top, prayer flags and the Buddha eyes. Inside the Dome we have built two long solid walls (so yoga students can practice inversions), which are beautifully decorated with a beautiful mural of Hindu and Tibetan imagery.
In the Dome there is a massive bay window overlooking one of our best views of beautiful rolling hills and a ruined convent. The Dome can hold around 60 Yogis very comfortably. It is also a perfect space for conferences and concerts and dances.
The breath-taking Om Dome is the realization of a dream. We think that it is without doubt the most magnificent Yoga Space in Europe.
Vidya has been using Manduka mat exclusively for the last 10 years and both of our studios at Suryalila, the dome and the yoga hall, are equipped with Manduka Pro mats.
