This Special 9-Day Immersion Training is a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the fundamentals of our yoga practice. Whilst it has been designed to prepare students for the 160hr Intensive Yoga Course and 320hr Yoga Teacher Training with Master Sharat Arora, it also stands alone as a rigorous yet relaxing Himalayan yoga break.

This Practice can be adjusted for all body types and ailments. Students will enjoy an intensity of practice which increases awareness and enables deep Self-Study, and will be able to continue an independent Self-Practice back home.

When I came to HIYC for the first time I suffered from severe backpain, due to a minor birth defect in my lumbar and the hard mattrasses one encounters in most of the Indian guest houses. So I got myself a nice piece of foam to find rest in my sleep and started the training in HIYC. Things got better day by day and I was pretty happy. Back home, I continued to practice the Yoga method I was taught. Around a year later I decided to go back to India on a long term basis. I planned to buy a mattrass, beeing aware of the anomaly in my spine. But as I arrived in Dharamkot a little late in the evening, there was no point to go to a mattrass shop. I thought, 'fine, no problem for one night'. But it turned out that there was never a need for an expensive, orthopaedic thing! I've now stayed in India for about 9 months, and the mattrasses in India are still quite often hard as hell. But I am fine, got no backpain at all. Sharat Arora is a real expert in how to build up alignment in any posture, no matter what one's preconditions are.

I did a five day introductory course. It was an excellent investment of time. Our young ( well young to me anyways) I’m 66. Vishna was wise beyond his years. He was patient, attentive and knowledgeable. I learned a great deal and will return in January trainings. I strongly recommend this training to anyone seriously interested in competent instruction

A stream full of priceless wisdom was shared in this Intensive Teachers Training course which I attended for 6 weeks under the guidance of Sharat Ji, Maria and all the assistant teachers. As a pre requisite to the TTC you have to do a 9 day intensive, to get a familiarity with the style of yoga we would be practicing. It is followed by a 3-week Intensive "Pranic Healing" course which is also a Silent course where you commit to yourself to be with silence (except for asking any questions to the teachers and ofcourse anything important). The silent course is held in the 'Himalaya Shanti Ashram' which is located at the foothill of a pristine mountain range in Dharamshala without any distractions. It is sort of a paradise if you love being in the wild and nature. You will learn all the amazing poses with the tiniest of details involved, which is what makes this course so unique. As Sharat, with all his passion and commitment toward yoga will guide you into discovering your body. The silent course is followed by a 3 week Teachers Training at the center in Dharamkot which is again at an amazing location where you are taught on how to impart this knowledge to other people. Having practiced yoga before, I found Sharat's approach very scientific, where you learn as you practice. There is immense focus on awareness, which is a learning for life as the true essence of yoga is to live in a state which is in sync with our true innate nature. I highly recommend this for anyone who is committed in self-development and finding balance in their lives overall. I have so much I can write but i'll perhaps leave it for a blog as this has become too long for a Google review already.

I’ve done a teacher training at the HIYC. This TTC ist not the typical teacher training, it’s much more: It consists of a 9 day immersion course to learn Sharat’s yoga method (which is an evolvement of classic Iyengar yoga), a three weeks intensive course at a mountain ashram and a three weeks teacher training at the centre in Dharamkot. This Yoga Course might be a game changer for your life and your health. Sharat’s yoga is a quite profound approach to yoga, everything is about the correct alignment of the body. If you are already a yoga teacher and want to deepen your knowledge about correct asanas, alignment and prana flowing, this course is for you. If you want to help your yoga students that have problems with their health or have body issues, this course is for you (the course is titled „pranic healing“). If you feel your own body getting older and want to know how to keep it young and healthy, this course is for you. If you want to get motivation to implement a daily yoga routine into your life, this course is for you. To sum it up: I had a profound experience at the HIYC and I soon will be back. (Marcus, Munich)

Sharat, Maria, and all the other assistants/teachers have a strong passion for doing the asana's correctly. I can only recommend this (alternative) Yoga method which is the best to go internal (mentally) and re-align your body as well. I hope to be back soon.

I studied last month with a different kind of teacher, different from anything I knew. For more than 5 years I have been studying movement and therapy, qi gong, shiatsu, yoga... and in the last few months here I have been on a long course with him and went through processes of understanding that could have taken years. למדתי בחודש שעבר אצל מורה מסוג אחר, שונה מכל מה שהכרתי. למעלה מ-5 שנים אני לומד תנועה וטיפול, צ'י גונג, שיאצו, יוגה... ובחודשים האחרונים כאן אני בקורס ארוך איתו ועברתי תהליכי הבנה שיכולים היו לקחת שנים.
