Our Centre in Dharamkot, Dharamsala

The Dharamkot Centre operates from April until the end of October.

Iyengar Yoga Dharamsala"Join our open jam sessions, drumming and bhajan singing on Fridays from 8 to 10 pm"

Established in 1985, the Centre in Dharamkot was built with the desire to give visitors a feeling of inspiration and devotion. The Yoga Hall provides all the practical needs for students, as well as unique artistic beauty. The land surrounding the structure is given as much care and significance as the Yoga Hall itself. Being just a bare piece of land when we started, our Centre is now home to 150 trees, and several varieties of flowers, roses and shrubs. In order to attract as much wildlife as possible, four ponds have been introduced into the gardens.

Iyengar Yoga DharamsalaAt the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre, we not only wish to encourage an awareness of the body, mind and spirit, but also sensitivity and gratitude for our natural environment, which in itself is devotion and respect to the highest principle of nature - Prakruti.
In Dharamkot, we also plan to have a library covering all aspects of Yoga and spiritual philosophy. Accommodation for students is available on campus and a variety of housing options are found very close to the outskirts of the Centre.

Iyengar CentreThe Centre is located in Village Dharamkot, just above McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala and operates during the Spring, Summer and Autmn Seasons, from early April until the end of October. For bookings and information the centre office is opened 9:00am-6:00pm from Thursday to Tuesday.

Himalaya Shanti Ashram, Dharamsala Eco Retreat for Yoga, Meditation and Healing

Himalaya Shanti Ashram is a mountain retreat specializing in the healing power of Yoga and Meditation as well as sustaining our environmental awareness. Located on the banks of a sparkling clear river, receiving its water from the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, all surrounded by forests and tucked away from the industrial development. It is a true paradise, bringing about quietness and peacefulness unknown in most of the world. Natural dwelling facilities and accommodations provide all that is needed for intensive Yoga and Meditation practice as well permaculture and organic farming.

Himalaya Shanti Ashram, Dharamshala

All our Intensive Courses and Teachers Trainings for the students with a deep interest in a serious practice – once held at the Himalyan Iyengar Yoga Centre in Dharamkot located one hour away – are now offered at the Ashram to better fulfil the need for quietness and inspire the practice of truly going within.

We are looking to work with others also dedicated to protecting, preserving and enjoying the natural beauty that surrounds us. Those who are looking to learn or teach on the principles of Ayurvedic healing, Organic Farming, Permaculture and other environmental and social projects that are strongly linked to our spiritual journey are invited to contact the ashram for future projects.
