Nirvana Wellness Retreat
for the gift of health, detoxification, personal enrichment and peace of mind
Shanti is a Sanskrit word that means Peace
Shanti Yoga is a path with heart. Integrating body-mind-spirit, peace-in-every-breath, with classical Hatha Yoga from head to toe practices, Shanti Yoga incorporates the whole, complete, eternal classical 8-limbs of yoga into mat practice. Its enlightened teachings find their expression in our modern lives. Cosmic understanding, body-mind-spirit placement and alignment, personal attention, deep spiritual ideals and intention, purification, detoxification and guiding principles for peace are behind each pose.
Om shanti, shanti, shanti

Shantiji's Quote of the Moment
Belief and Attitude
Two imprisoned people looked out through the same cell bars, one saw mud, the other, the stars.
The key to how your life is right now, or how it will be tomorrow and in the future, lies in your ability to understand the source of your attitude. And the source of your attitude is your belief system. It determines the way you see yourself and the way you see the world you live in. What you see is what you get. Be positive, be inspired and serve others. You affect the quantum field.
Be blessed. Be well. With love, Shanti.
Joining Hands - the circle of love
A growing number of people are beginning to see things in a radically different way, to 'wake up' spiritually, and discover an entirely new identity beyond the usual sense of who we think we are. This shift from unconscious to conscious evolution is powered not by insight but by the heart. Love is always the answer, and the engine for survival. Shanti Yoga fosters spiritual awakening, how changes take place for you, and its unification of heart, mind and soul. Our experience can inspire and inform realisation for many. Let's stay in touch. Share in our wonderful and supportive community and receive Shantiji's free email newsletters.
You have been the heart of Shanti Yoga for over four decades, and are the fuel that keeps our centres running, our academic and administration team, students, minds, hearts and computers burning, making our work possible. In an increasingly confused world, Shanti Yoga is an ethical, professional, caring, and unique voice for troubled times. Offering mentoring and holistic perspectives, support and real solutions through practices such as classical yoga, mindfulness meditation, ayurvedic health, and teacher training. Please help us contact older members of Shanti Yoga. Do you know people you have done yoga or meditation with? If so, please ask them to get in contact with us. We feel privileged to be an integral part of your spiritual awakening. A glorious past, a promising future, thank you for your support. Love and gratitude to you all, and abundant blessings.

Corporate Wellbeing Services
The universe is a mirror of your heart. The practice of yoga (which has evolved over throusands of years to embrace a wide range of styles and disciiplines), yokes the cosmic being with your physical.
Shanti Yoga is a holistic practice that has evolved to suit all levels of wellbeing in physical and mental health. It has been proven to lower blood pressure, increase respiratory and digestive health, mobility, reduce stress, tension, pain develop concentration, and help people sleep better. Shanti Yoga is for all ages, from children to seniors. It energises the body, calms the mind and let's the soul rest in it's spirit.
There is a strong and growing interest in yoga, beyond its fitness benefits, and also a growing body of research proving yoga’s efficacy for everything from depression to back pain, to protecting the brain against the challenges of aging and so on.
Health professionals are referring their patients to yoga teachers and therapists. But who do they refer to? They may be telling their patients, “Do yoga, it will help your back pain, anxiety, weight issues, etc.” but we all know that if they are not referring their patients to the right yoga classes or teachers, they could be getting the wrong kind of yoga for their condition, or worse, getting injured.

• Yoga Science and Philosophy - Classes, Workshops, Retreats, Teacher Training
• Mindfulness Meditation • Vipassana
• Stress Reduction and Wellness • Neck Care • Pelvic Floor Health • Spinal Health • Shoulder and upper back mobility • Anxiety and Depression • Insomnia (sleep unit) • Breathe Easier
