Yoga Teacher Training Course in Goa, Dharamkot, Dharamsala and in Arambol
The Dharamkot and Arambol Yoga Centers were both established in 1985 by Sharat Arora (Anand Sagar) a long term student of BKS Iyengar.
Sharat’s priority of living and practicing in a natural environment led him to choose Dharamkot, situated in the beautiful and lush green Himalayas; as well as Goa, best known for the vast and safest beaches in India.
The Centres offer various yoga and meditation courses to suit various requirements and time frames of students. There are weekly yoga classes for beginning and continuing students, intensive yoga teacher training, yoga teacher training courses, therapy courses, yoga for children as well as yoga for women.
The courses are informative, motivational and above all experiential.
Himalaya Shanti Ashram
Eco Retreat for Yoga, Meditation and Healing
To enhance a deeper and more focused practice, Sharat Arora founded the Himalaya Shanti Ashram, and on 20th September 2011, officially inaugurated that special retreat, where students can devote themselves entirely to self-exploration, change and transformation.
It is a true paradise in the mountain river valley with the view on the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, bringing about quietness and peacefulness unknown in most of the world.
All our intensive yoga teacher training courses as well as therapy yoga courses for the students with a deep interest in serious practice – once held at the Himalyan Iyengar Yoga Centre in Dharamkot located one hour away – are now offered at the Ashram, to better inspire the practice of truly going within.

“Chakras & Evolution of Consciousness” Special Yoga Course - Arambol Yoga Centre, North Goa
Hatha Yoga is the study of the energy within us, which rises up from the bottom of the spine to the top of the head, moving through different points of the body, called Chakras. These Chakras represent our different energies. Through the Yoga Practice we can release the blockages in any of these areas, allowing our energies to express themselves fully and thus lead a better life. In this Special Yoga Course we learn which postures operate on which chakras and how to free them, thus we understand how our Yogic Practice brings about an evolution in our consciousness to a purer state.

“Pranic Healing” Intensive Yoga Course in Eco Retreat – Dharamsala
“The Art of Healing Oneself with the Breath”
In this Intensive Course we come upon the art of using the Asanas at their subtlest level. Firstly we focus on understanding the body alignment and actually feel it – both – in practicing Asanas as well as in Pranayama. Once the fundamental understanding of right movements and adjustments in all the basic postures is explored in the personal practice in great detail, we start learning how to reach all the areas of the body with specific groups of Yoga Asanas and benefit them with Pranayama technique. We learn how to remove any blockages by directing the breath to those areas and thus gaining a sense of well being and freedom. By aware breathing in our Pranayama practice we experience energetic empowerment and altered state of mind. Pranic Healing is an Intensive Yoga Course that requires a great subtlety of Read More

The Teacher's Training Course in Eco Retreat – Dharamsala
The Teacher's Training Course prepares students on the Path of Yoga to share their enthusiasm and knowledge with others and teaches how to help our brothers and sisters realize their full potential in life. We learn to diagnose body and mind sets, identify blockages, and discover the impact of Yoga through exploration of our own bodies. There will be detailed analysis of each posture and how it is used for different needs. This knowledge will then be put into practice in order to gain confidence in giving asanas instruction, sequencing of poses, correction of imbalance, and handling various class situations. It is designed for motivated practitioners who wish to make the spiritual path of Yoga their way of life and who eventually want to teach others how to walk the same path. Read More
