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."

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.

Shanti Yoga - the number 1 choice

Thought for the day - Monday 20th Apri

It's time to start living as if you have everything to gain, because you do. 
It starts with the most significant, most basic aspect of your life,your breath. 
Breath awareness, sensitivity and honesty 
arise from inner yoga, meditation and other mindful practices. 
If you are seeking to become the most lively, authentic and healthy version of you, 
you need to awaken your inner healer, 
renew your tired heart and 
nourish your wild soul. 
Learn to hear the small, guiding voice within you. 
Put intuitive inklings into action that thrives. 
Compassionately recalibrate your expectations 
to cope with stress intelligently. 
Rebound from setbacks and develop unwavering patience. 
Become proactive about developing your gifts, your voice, your authenticity. 
Transform, heal and let go
with less fear, more courage and trust.
May you live with deep peace and great love. Unlimited blessings, Shantiji
