Sundarakand is the most important part of that sublime "longest poem ever written", which brings the alchemical effect on all the spiritual work a Yogi has being through in the many lifetimes prior to being initiated into it. Flyer for Tuesday Sundarkand chanting. Feel free to join in Shantidwara or via Zoom.

UPDATED OCTOBER 2020 WEEKLY SCHEDULE

ShantiDwara Yoga School classes start early morning to greet the Sun, to commence day with a recharged body-mind-soul triad and cleansed lenses of perception to gain the most out of daily experience.


Starting at the time before sunrise guarantees the most auspicious timing to plant a seed of positive change. Concluding the day with deeply nourishing yoga practice erases the stress of the day and accumulated impressions, which otherwise get archived straight into the subconscious memory.

Yoga practices create the state of harmony in the body. As a result the good flora in all organs strives and supports the state of inner peace and sense of joy from within. Good routine and good simple diet is crucial to avoid unnecessary mood swings and digestive issues. 


Russian recipe of fermented cabbage steals all awards for its sweet taste, load of vitamins, good enzymes, and most importantly HASSLE FREE PREPARATION. Check out my sharing, then adjust quantities for your taste. 


One interesting fact - the recipe can omit all ingredients but cabbage. Yes! You are right, the cabbage can ferment well even in the absence of salt. Salt helps to keep bad bacteria at bay.

Shantidwara wishes You the most auspicious multifold returns of Sadhana over this year’s celebration of Festival of Lights Diwali.

In the times of rapid unpredictable change in the world the word DHARMA has become the key 🔑 mantra to maintain peace.

Diwali 🪔 is the most heart-melting Festival of Lights to celebrate King Rama returning to Ayodhya after being exiled for 14 years and in that time successfully slaying the demons, most importantly 10-headed 20-handed Ravana - the lusty King of Lanka. Rama’s place, as the beloved of all - gods and demons alike - for his unparalleled beauty and upholding Dharma, is in his own kingdom giving command to his subjects.

First day of Chaitra Navaratri - Mahamrityumjaya Havan at ShantiDwara

This evening ShantiDwara celebrated a mix of traditional Mahamrityumjaya Havan with lots of sublime sounds. We chanted Durga Dwatrimshanamamala and Sri Hanuman Chalisa. What followed with all the Bhav/feeling was close to miracle as all the participants dived deep into Kirtan with such a fervour that no doubt, we got all the blessings of Lakshmi Ma - abundance and Saraswati Ma - blissful beauty of expression. #shantidwara

After a deeply nourishing class with Swami Yogamanas Saraswati

Every Thursday students of ShantiDwara get an opportunity to explore movements of the body - with profound mindfulness, movements of energy - with full awareness and movement of the mind - with absolute focus through the systematic progression taught by a highly skilled yogi and experienced teacher Swami Yogamanas Saraswati. Now that we entered into colder months of the year, the gently burning fire and the ambient atmosphere of the yoga hall deeply feeds the senses and warms up the heart ❣ More information in the event https://shantidwara.com/page/view-event-profile?id=8 Casual classes welcome. #shantidwara 

Saturday Morning Class with Asher

Gentle flow and interesting transitions with diligent awareness of the breath and complete mindfulness. Wonderful class, where surprisingly we got many more male Yoga practitioners than usual because of the Men’s Yoga Retreat camping on ShantiDwara’s land. Wonderful to feel the very solid boost of the male energy - so grounding and peaceful. Encourage boys and men do Yoga, it is essential for the balance of creative energies. #shantidwara

Yoga Nidra

  •  · 
Humans spend about a third of their lives sleeping. Unconsciously. Just like breathing, sleep is believed to be especial for our survival, as means of relaxation and rejuvenation. We all practice it every day.  Yogis of the past developed a practice, derived from tantras, which allowed them to sleep continuously and direct their awareness towards achieving deeper and broader relaxation than in a state of sleep.  Swami Satyananda, in his book “Yoga Nidra” (ISBN: 8185787123) says: People feel that they are relaxing when they collapse in an easy chair with a cup of coffee, a drink or a cigarette, and read a newspaper or switch on the television. But this will never suffice as a scientific de
