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.

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.

Yoga and Ayurveda are sciences stemming from the same philosophical background, Yoga being for the spirit and Ayurveda for the body.

It informs and helps us understand how the elements work, so that we are able to personalise our practice, tuning it to our specific body constitution needs for better results. This brings a more profound harmony within and the increase of the awareness of ourselves in relation to the outer world.

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.
