Monsoon greetings

Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre

in Dharamkot, Dharamsala and in Arambol, Goa

The mild crystal clear stream of the summer has turned into a muddy torrential mass roaring through the valley. We are having a lot of rain and at times the river has risen 4 or 5 metres... What a sight. The bamboo, the trees, the plants have stooped and bowed to the constant downpour with leaves getting heavier & greener. A lush green meets the eye wherever you look. Even the concrete has grown green from the moss, the paths and rocks look beautiful. The mango seeds that were thrown around just a few weeks back have sprouted into plants a foot high. The bamboo has grown several new shoots that are growing at a foot per day - it’s a miracle.
The immersion on Chakras and Evolution of Consciousness was a great success and has awarded us with a huge number of teacher trainees now on their third week, they are all pretty motivated and keen and we look forward to having a new batch of HIYC teachers very soon.
I am pleased to inform you that next April, May, June immediately after the ttc, we will be running a 12 week assistant internship programme headed by me personally. It is a rigorous programme of assisting, correcting, q&a sessions, devoted practice time and teaching videos and can be attended by ANYONE who has completed a teachers training with HIYC in the past. It is being set up in the hope of improving the quality of teachers of the method both old and new practically as well as theoretically.
The ashram is an extraordinarily beautiful place, we invite you & your friends to come & learn about the plants and the ecosystems, as well as enjoying daily yoga classes, don’t miss the chance to attend our Yoga & Permaculture course hosted by permaculturist and composting revolutionary Christoff Schneider this October at the Himalaya Shanti Ashram.
