Founded in 1985 by Sharat Arora, a long term student of BKS Iyengar, the centre has become a landmark on the seekers map. From his regular meditation and constant study, Sharat Arora has put yoga in its right perspective as a spiritual practice to be used practically in life. The centre in Dharamshala has a unique architecture and the garden is a haven of natural beauty whereas the centre in Goa is simplicity itself embedded in an orchard with a variety of fruit trees just minutes from the beach. These 2 centres offer short and long term yoga trainings where a student can progress in all aspects of their life. To deepen the awareness the Himalaya Shanti Ashram is the place to go. Currently all Intensive and Yoga Teacher Training Courses are held here as the river and forest that surround it induce the consciousness to be meditative and go within.
