The Dharamkot and Arambol Yoga Centres were both established in 1985 by Yoga Master Teacher Sharat Arora (Anand Sagar) - a long term student of BKS Iyengar. Sharat’s priority of living and practicing in a natural environment led him to choose Dharamkot, situated in the beautiful and lush green Himalayas; as well as Goa, best known for the vast and safest beaches in India. The Centres offer various yoga and meditation courses to suit vast requirements and time frames of students. There are weekly yoga classes for beginning and continuing students, intensive and yoga teachers training courses, therapy courses, yoga & meditation silent retreats, yoga for children as well as yoga for women. The courses are informative, motivational and above all experiential.
Himalaya Shanti Ashram - Eco Retreat for Yoga, Meditation and Healing
To enhance a deeper and more focused practice, Yoga Master Teacher Sharat Arora founded the Himalaya Shanti Ashram, and on 20th September 2011, officially inaugurated that special retreat, where students can devote themselves entirely to self-exploration, change and transformation. It is a true paradise in the mountain river valley with the view on the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, bringing about quietness and peacefulness unknown in most of the world. All our Intensive and Yoga Teachers Training Courses as well as Yoga and Meditation Silent Retreats for the students with a deep interest in serious practice – once held at the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre in Dharamkot located one hour away – are now offered at the Ashram, to better inspire the practice of truly going within.
160H Immersion Course in the SHARAT ARORA YOGA METHOD: Chakras and Evolution of Consciousness With Master Yoga Teacher Sharat Arora

Hatha Yoga is the study of the energy within us, which rises up from the bottom of the spine to the top of the head, moving through different points of the body, called Chakras. These Chakras represent our different energies. Through the Yoga Practice we can release the blockages in any of these areas, allowing our energies to express themselves fully and thus lead a better life. During this Intensive Yoga Course we learn which postures operate on which Chakras and how to free them, thus we understand how our Yogic Practice brings about an evolution in our consciousness to a purer state.
