Journey into the Heart of Peace
Retreats for wellbeing and personal and spiritual growth are offered at Nirvana Wellness Sanctuary, which is a unique, culturally immersive, restorative, rural, mountain retreat.
 
Drop out of the fast paced, consumer culture. Retreat, relax and awaken in the simple ease of a timeless, natural way of life. Here you will encounter something sweet and rare, understand human design and destiny, the art and science of discovering who you really are, connect with a community (sangha), stay in the host guru's home, and experience the heart-opening contact with your soul.
 
During the retreat you put aside some of your usual habits, come back into 'beginner's mind', engage in reflective inquiry, meditation and gentle yoga, and and discover the inherent wisdom of being human.
 
Rejuvenate with the intelligence and wisdom of the heart, benefit from healing massage, and soothe yourself  with delicious Ayurvedic plant based meals.
 
Shantiji has producted self-help take home tools to facilitate your on-going enrichment. 
 
Months and decades later you will continue to feel the love, healing and powerful reverberations from this enriching experience.
 
Shanti
is a Sanskrit word  
that means 'Peace'
 
Shanti Yoga is a gentle style of yoga which is accessible to every body, age, shape, size, gender and ability. It is a path with heart, integrating body-mind-spirit, peace-in-every-breath, tools, teachings and practices from classical Yoga for head to toe wellbeing. 
 
Shanti Yoga classes incorporate the whole, complete, eternal classical 8-limbs of yoga into mat practice so that you connect with the hidden forces that deeply influence your life and all of human development and cultural evolution, and feel awake and aware in a profound and practical way. 
 
These enlightened teachings find their expression in your everyday life. You find yourself harnessing Shanti Yoga's teachings of cosmic understanding, body-mind-spirit placement and alignment, personal attention, profound spiritual ideals and intention, purification, detoxification and guiding principles for peace .

Shanti Yoga Gold Coast Reviews

"After researching Yoga on the 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."

A Message from the CEO, 
Shanti Gowans, 
Yoga and Meditation Master

shanti yoga master gold coast

In 1972, Peter and I took a brave step by starting our humble Yoga Centre, an educational organisation which is mission based, which has led us on a lifelong path of service, practice and understanding. We have a holistic view of life and health, and are motivated by a deep conviction of a greater spirituality. There is a solution for almost anything in life if you are willing to work on all levels, namely: physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual. 
 
Everyday I am deeply touched and reminded that there are so many 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.
 
Today, from our centre on the Gold Coast we lead and teach teachers of yoga, Ayurvedic practitioners, private and corporate clients, individuals and groups. Along this journey we have acquired a vast and broad experience that empowers people from all over the world to balance, navigate and heal their lives. There has not been much of a choice. Yoga has chosen us. The student becomes the teacher.
 
Our flagship courses in Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda are deep and profound. Never faltering, the transformation wisdom from these disciplines provide everyday practice that works miracles on all levels. During your practice with us, it's as if a 'magic' window temporarily opens in your timeline which allows you to awaken, glimpse tranquility and inner happiness, and transform your current paradigm into the amazing reality that awaits you. 
 
I encourage you to aspire to the Shanti Yoga sutra:
- Slow down: simply be here now.
- Expand your heart: love is always the answer
- Flow: Everything changes, all the time. Just go with the flow of your breath. Fearlessly let go completely of the things that are holding you back from fully living your life on all levels
- Still your mind: Happiness comes from within you.
- Nourish your body
- Honour your soul: Be brave and courageous, and act from a deeper level of consciousness within you.
- Embrace the whole: Let go, let God. It's all the play of consciousness.

My personal blessing for you is that you live an authentic life, rediscover your purpose and passion, attain inner peace, and believe in the possibility of all things from the depths of your being. May the path of pursuing spiritual and personal excellence be smooth for you. May you prevail with an unperturbed heart, no matter what obstacles you encounter,

I am so grateful for the opportunity of providing you with great training, positive and good energy through our presence, publications, products and programs. Be the change you want to see. A bettter world equates with a better life for all. It is with all the love in my heart that I ask you to join us. Help support the work we do and make an enlightened society possible. 

May you be blessed. I hope you are having a peaceful day and that life treats you with great kindness. 
With much love and namaste,
I love you,
Shantiji

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.
 
Joining Hands - the circle of love
A growing number of people are beginning to see things in a radically different way, to 'wake up' spiritually, and discover an entirely new identity beyond the usual sense of who we think we are. This shift from unconscious to conscious evolution is powered not by insight but by the heart. Love is always the answer, and the engine for survival. Shanti Yoga fosters spiritual awakening, how changes take place for you, and its unification of heart, mind and soul. Our experience can inspire and inform realisation for many. Let's stay in touch. Share in our wonderful and supportive community and receive Shantiji's free email newsletters. 
 
You have been the heart of Shanti Yoga for four and a half decades, and are the fuel that keeps our centres running, our academic and administration team, students, minds, hearts and computers burning, making our work possible. In an increasingly confused world, Shanti Yoga is an ethical, professional, caring, and unique voice for troubled times. Offering mentoring and holistic perspectives, support and real solutions through practices such as classical yoga, mindfulness meditation, ayurvedic health, and teacher training. Please help us contact older members of Shanti Yoga. Do you know people you have done yoga or meditation with? If so, please ask them to get in contact with us. We feel privileged to be an integral part of your spiritual awakening. A glorious past, a promising future, thank you for your support. Love and gratitude to you all, and abundant blessings.

Let us experience a moment of peace together…
the now is timeless
                                        Shantiji
 
As a lamp in a windless place does not waver, so the yogi whose mind is focused remains always steady in meditation on the transcendent self.
                         Bhagavad Gita 6:19 
 
for you 
on the path
toward the light within, 
and for you
who mark the way,
celebrate life.
Your soul dances in your body
 
If I had a magic wand, I would gift more energy, lowered blood pressure, less stress and toxcity, more flexibility, connection and peace of mind into your life.  Sadly I don't :( 
Instead I'd like to give you the next best thing:)
knowledge on how to do it yourself,
with easy, simple but effective ways, mentoring and support. Holding the space for transformation to occur, we use the tools of mindfulness/heartfulness, yoga, Ayurveda, nature and community, integrating these into wellness and health care to help you with the shifts you are ready for. 
 Give a person a fish you feed them for a day. Teach them how to fish, you feed them for life.
Here you find yourself…
and love what you find.
Shanti Yoga enhances every area of your life.
 
 
Accept what is
Release what was
Create what must be.
Relax. Renew. Reconnect
 Awaken. Live consciously and grow.
Be mentored in the three wisdom traditions:
yoga, meditation, ayurveda
for natural healthcare and pain management 
by a supportive community 
with treatments and values based education
for holistic, personal development 
that enhances self-care, happiness and simplicity.
We have people joining us from all over the world, and it's amazing. Come, enjoy, be inspired, find purpose and meaning at the Shanti Yoga Centre, which is built around core spiritual values and is one of the most enlightened paths toward radical wellbeing available to humankind today. For most people, realisation on any level is the result of regular, determined effort. Support your natural spiritual progress.
 
Are you experiencing an accumulation of stress, an illness, or simply want to feel more vital and energetic naturally? Have you tried to create healthier habits, or perhaps even seen a doctor, but nothing seems to help?
Western medicine tends to take a fragmented approach to healing, addressing only the symptoms of disease and seeing health as merely the absence of illness. Stress and unresolved personal issues can manifest as digestive distress, sleep disorders, aches and pain, chronic fatigue and so many other symptoms. The synegestic approach of gentle Shanti Yoga, breathwork, inner peace meditation, mindfulness, Ayurveda and nature provide an extraordinaty, one-of-a-kind mind-body practices and guidance to help you live well. 
We help you find doable, long-term, sustainable, healthy, mind-body-spirit solutions. 
 
Educate your mind, heal your body,
illuminate your soul.

This classic and invaluable teaching, compiled over 2,000 years ago, is of immense value to yoga practitioners and students of Indian philosophy. It is one of the most profound and enlightening studies of human nature and the search for spiritual liberation.

Shanti Yoga offers donations based on community and altruistic pro bono health programs to help empower those with no financial means but who are determined about creating change in their lives. Worthy beneficiaries have been patients with cancer, female victims of abuse and domestic violence, children from orphanages or in foster care, and also those dedicated to serving the community such as war veterans, personnel of the armed forces, fire fighters, police, carers. If you know of any worthy organisations who are in need of help for their members, please put us in touch with them. The practices of Yoga, Pranayama, Mindfulness Meditation, Deep relaxation, Guided Imagery and Mantra, serve to calm, relax and assist patients in the healing/recovery process.

Success without Stress

The universe is a mirror of your heart. Consciousness moves through the medium of you body, and The Presence transforms itself in creation. The practice of yoga (which has evolved over throusands of years to embrace a wide range of styles and disciiplines), yokes cosmic consciousness with your personal consciousness. 

Shanti Yoga is a holistic practice that has evolved to suit all levels of wellbeing in physical, relational and mental health. It has been proven to lower blood pressure, increase respiratory and digestive health, mobility, reduce stress, tension and pain, sharpen concentration, and help people sleep better. Shanti Yoga is for all ages, from children to seniors. It energises the body, calms the mind and let's the soul rest in it's spirit. However, there is a strong and growing interest in yoga, beyond its fitness benefits, and also a growing body of research proving yoga’s efficacy for everything from depression to back pain, to protecting the brain against the challenges of aging and so on, which Shanti Yoga also addresses.

Health professionals are referring their patients to yoga teachers and therapists. But who do they refer to? They may be telling their patients, “Do yoga, it will help your back pain, anxiety, weight issues, etc.” but we all know that if they are not referring their patients to the right yoga classes or teachers, they could be getting the wrong kind of yoga for their condition, or worse, getting injured.  

The pure, classical Shanti Yoga™ curriculum will teach you to: 

  • Work on your mind and body therapeutically through our tried and true practices.
  • Classes are diverse, group-oriented and community based, yet provide a personal experience within a true collective.
  • Our unique method of self-care will help you have deeply satisfying meditation and asana practice with both structural conditions and mental health challenges, as you leverage spiritual assets through a nondogmatic approach to wellness and key Ayurvedic concepts and their application
