Shanjei, the crafter of Warrior Vinyasa, has invited his soul family over from the
Netherlands to facilitate retreats in Sri Lanka. The first of which will be the Peaceful
warrior retreat at Prana Lounge in Colombo on the 14th of May 2023. They will immerse

Even though they share the same perspective on spirituality, each of the characters bring
their own discipline and personality to the table. Shanjei facilitates Yoga and Pranayama.
