"Yoga is not just for a yogi to gain enlightenment and freedom but also
for the common man to be peaceful and happy learning to adapt
to the present environment and adopt a lifestyle that brings harmony"

5-Day Yoga Courses, Intensives and Teachers Training Course Yoga Therapy, Yoga for Women, Yoga for Children Yoga and Meditation Silent Retreats and more...

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.
