Andrea & Ronny

Founder Shambhala Tenerife

Our story began in the serenity of Tenerife back in 2006, guided by an auspicious coincidence that eventually wove us into the family we are today—an ever-welcoming family that extends its embrace to you with open hearts 🧡.

From the moment our paths crossed, our shared passions kindled an extraordinary connection. Hiking, in particular, was our steadfast companion during those days. Hours upon hours were spent traversing the stunning landscapes of our island, forging a bond that's grown stronger over time. Ronny has become an integral part of the Canarian way of life and culture, seamlessly woven into the vibrant fabric of Tenerife.

As we embarked on these explorations, conversations and dreams unfurled. A vision emerged—an aspiration to create a haven where individuals from every corner of the globe could find solace, our own little corner of the world with an ecological garden, and a lifestyle intertwined with nature's rhythms.

In 2011, the winds of change led us to Europe, a move born out of necessity. England and Switzerland became our homes for the next 8 years. But in 2019, an undeniable pull drew us back to our roots, igniting an unwavering determination to breathe life into our dreams.

Leaving the familiar behind, we embarked on a transformative journey. With our two children and newfound canine companions Kira and Lola, we embarked on a road trip—a voyage of reconnection. Four months later, we arrived home in Tenerife, the place where dreams began to converge with reality.

Just when uncertainty started to cast its shadow, a beacon of hope emerged—Shambhala. A neglected house yearning for care and attention, Shambhala beckoned to us with the promise of restoration. In January 2020, our journey to revive this sanctuary began. By March, our first guests had arrived, seeking refuge during a global lockdown. In their company, we found inspiration, forming bonds through shared meals, music, painting, and yoga. Their departure marked the dawn of a new era, leaving behind not only memories but also a piece of themselves—the foundation of our ever-growing family.

Today, we stand before you, guardians of a dream that's blossomed into reality. Shambhala is more than a place—it's a haven where yoga finds its home, where time unravels gently, allowing you to embrace tranquility, reconnect with your essence, and chart your course forward. Here, the melodies of birdsong usher in the dawn, and where the stories of kindred spirits from around the world intermingle and flourish.

Our dream lives and thrives because of souls like you, seekers of serenity and connection. Together, we've woven a tapestry of shared experiences and cherished moments, and we're excited to extend our family to include you.

 

Welcome to Shambhala—your haven for rejuvenation, discovery, and friendship in the heart of Tenerife.
