Shanti Yoga Gold Coast Reviews

"After researching Yoga Gold Coast I found Shanti Yoga. Not only does Shanti in my opinion offer the best holistic healing service, I also found the center to have the best price which is very refreshing. Being a business owner with a few health issues I am very relieved after only 1 week I am back at work and am very impressed with Shanti Yoga."

Everyday I am deeply touched and reminded that there are a lot of remarkable people doing great things in the world. Values drive behaviour. Motivated by goals that have deep meaning, dreams that need completion, and love that needs expressing, you truly live.

Be the change you want to see. A bettter world equates with a better life for all. It is with all the love in our hearts that we ask you to join us and make enlightened society possible.

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.

Shanti Yoga - the number 1 choice

Thought for the day - Thurs 28th May

Attitudes are contagious. Is yours worth catching? Staying positive and optimistic not only impacts your own happiness, but impacts the happiness and success of all the people around you, such as your family, friends and peers at work. We alone activate the very energy and emotion through which we experience life. A happy and vibrant life begins on the path of gratitude. If we wish to feel joy and gratitude in our lives, then we must direct our beliefs and behaviours in order to accomplish that end. And we must do it constantly, with such commitment and repetition that those emotions become the hues of our daily attitude. There is no download limit. Amidst all the chaos and conflict, all the hurry and unwholesomeness in the world, there is something solid within that is beautiful, divine, and steadfast, leading us towards an empowered, inspired life that spreads messages of love and encouragement. 

May you live with deep peace and great love. Unlimited blessings, Shantiji
