Welcome to the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre India
Founded in 1985 by our teacher Yoga Master Sharat Arora, the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre was the first Yoga School in both North Goa and Himachal Pradesh. Since that time Sharat Arora has taught and helped over 40,000 students.
At the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre we practise and teach an evolution of Classical Iyengar Yoga, as developed by our teacher who was a long term student and assistant teacher for his Guruji BKS Iyengar.
About Iyengar Yoga Practice
His dedicated 7 years with Guruji B.K.S. Iyengar led him to explore and develop his own yoga practice in line with Guruji’s teachings of alignment & healing. The Yoga we practise and teach at the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre is therefore an EVOLUTION of the Traditional Iyengar Yoga.
Master Sharat Arora’s relentless exploration led him to discover the importance of the foundations in Yoga Practice. From there the Yoga Asanas grow and alignment is found. The revelation about footwork and handwork is integral and specific to Master Sharat Arora’s style of teaching. This uniqueness and authenticity makes the HIYC one of the best Iyengar Yoga Schools in India.
Iyengar Yoga Courses & Training
We run a range of Iyengar Yoga Courses, Yoga Teacher Training, Intensive Courses and Silent Retreats at our Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centres and Yoga Ashram. All students starts with an introduction to the yoga method regardless of previous Iyengar Yoga Training or other Yoga Practices experience because of the subtle differences between these styles and what we teach. For students who wish to learn the method properly and take away a full Hatha Yoga Self-Practice, we recommend 3 weeks of classes at one of our Top Iyengar Yoga Studios or an equivalent 9-Day Intensive Yoga Course.
Students who are inspired to go deeper still are encouraged to visit our Yoga Ashram and complete an Intensive Courses or Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) Course. We also offer shorter Intensive Courses, Silent Meditation Retreats, Yoga Therapy Courses, Yoga Workshop for Back Pain, Yoga for Vipassana Meditators, Yoga for Women and more.
