It began in 2008 when a group of four independent practitioners founded Shala in the Glass Building - just off the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, VA.
Drawn by the clear and powerful energy in a suite which formerly housed a Bön Buddhist meditation space, the group grew in depth and experience, expanding in 2012 to the Carter-Gilmer House at 800 East Jefferson Street.
For the past 4 years, our thoughtfully curated group of experienced practitioners has settled in to our newest location at 800 East High Street. We invite you to browse through our site to learn more about what we offer and how you can connect with us.
