A still mind in a healthy body
Gratitude is the heart's memory.
Everyday I am deeply touched and reminded that there are a lot of remarkable people doing great things in the world. Values drive behaviour. Motivated by goals that have deep meaning, dreams that need completion, and love that needs expressing, you truly live.
The five main themes that reflect our work are Wellbeing, Wisdom practices, Arts and culture, Leadership and business, and World change and service. Together we can spread the message of encouragement, inspiration and empowerment, and offer the most effective way to change a life for the better, anytime you want. Come, join us. Participate fully.
In the moment you are infinite.
Infinite gratitude. Infinite blessings
May you always feel love.

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into flame by an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light.
Relax, unwind, rest, restore…
Here you learn how to achieve the ultimate goal of being human: a life of love, wisdom, authenticity, healing, fulfilment and purpose.
Shanti Yoga is a dramatically different style of traditional yoga. It provides a very fine synthesis of the principles, practices and path of yoga, as it is. Free from the bonds of a specific tradition, Shanti Yoga works with the true, inherent, primordial nature of all beings - the presence which is free from all limitations and conditioning. Our programs are gentle, healing and relaxing, and they work.
Each session is a well balanced, holistic, relaxing, healing practice, suitable for all ages, regardless of your present state of health and includes: gentle Yoga stretching, body toning, joint lubricating, posture and balance exercises, together with corrective breathing, energy flow, focus, concentration, meditation, relaxation practices, life philosophy and peace of mind training.
Yoga's changing role in society has integrated spirituality and medicine to effectively aligns these worlds, bringing the mind-body practice of yoga into a realm that overlaps healthcare. This practice leaves you feeling elated and relaxed rather than exhausted, and delivers a sense of wellbeing and balance which is so beneficial in dealing with the stresses of the modern world. Shanti Gowans' deeper understanding of the healing properties of yoga, in terms of the psycho-physiological underpinning of its curative effects, provides a boost in the care of clinically ill patients.
Yoga, alongside her sister discipline Ayurveda, have been traditionally and effectively employed to therapeutically treat mental and physical conditions such as anxiety, arthritis, cardiovascular disorders, depression, metabolic disorders, musculoskeletal problems, neurological disorders, pain management, quality of life for those with cancer, sleep disorders, stress and so on.
In addition to assisting twenty-first century, high stress conditions and complications, we conduct a wide range of programs based on meditation and yoga training which offer a complete social vision that unites the depth of enlightened practice with the concrete possibilities for sanity, compassion, sustainability and justice in service to humankind and the planet.
