UPDATED 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.


Move your Yoga practice to the next level by steady progress. Uproot fears and deep-rooted conditioning by learning ancient techniques of body movements, breath work and meditation, gradually learning to apply them in daily life. Restore bodily functions, addressing all systems of the organism with a holistic, scientifically sound and systematic approach.


In Yoga, Sun represents soul or the grand ego, Moon reflecting the light - the mind, and Fire, the tangible luminous particle, the transmitting force delivering the cosmic universal message, stands for the power of transformation.

(Listen to the interview attached as MP3 and see pictures and video attached)

Julia Boon who became Matarisvan

Julia is an Australian citizen. She is of Russian origin, her childhood was spent in Kyrgyzstan but she likes India and Sanatan Dharma. Today she is spreading yoga by marrying Baba Barfani Das in Uttarakhand, India.

Julia came to Australia from Kyrgyzstan

Today, we mix you with Sadhvi Matarisvan, who worships a temple in the state of Uttarakhand, India. Actually, the story behind it is more interesting than this name. And this is the story of Julia Boon, who is of Russian origin. His childhood was spent in Kyrgyzstan. And in the year 2003, she came to Australia.

Julia says that when she was 17 years old. Since then, she was devoted to yoga and in Kyrgyzstan, she used to do yoga on the mountains. He told that she was a follower of yoga guru Swami Shivanand in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand.


Julia used to run a dating website in Australia

Julia says that she got married at a very young age. And after that she came to Australia. She says that she never wanted to do a job. After coming to Australia, he started a dating website. Julia lived in Sydney with her family. Where he also got the support of his mother. But he never liked the urban congestion and one day he left Sydney.


ShantiDwara Devi Temple and ashram in Australia

About a year after leaving Sydney, he opened a yoga ashram near Byron Bay, which he named Shantidwara. This ashram is still there. There is also a temple of Mata Tripurasundari in this ashram.

Julia says that she used to visit India often. And in one such journey in the year 2018, when she was going to Badrinath. So he met Baba Barfani Das, who does yoga in a temple in Chamoli district in Uttarakhand. Julia says that her younger son started saying Baba Barfanidas's father. Because Julia was living with Baba, keeping in mind the social limitations, one day they decided to get married.

Marriage of Julia Matarisvan with Baba Barfani Das

Yoga spread after marriage to Baba

The two married at the famous Siddha Peet Dhari Devi near Srinagar, Uttarakhand. Julia is now known as Sadhvi Matarisvan. She says that she was very impressed with Baba Barfani's yoga knowledge and lifestyle. Now we questioned that  Matarisvan decided her life but what did her two children study and what the future holds. She says that India's education system is very good. Although his elder son is studying in Australia, but his younger son will study there.

Matarisvan now wants to spread yoga with Baba Barfani Das. These days, he goes to many schools and colleges in Uttarakhand to teach yoga. She wants to bring Baba Barfani Das to Australia for a few days on a visitor visa. However, they have faced problems in this.

Mahamrityumjaya Havan at ShantiDwara - Photos from 2 Mar 2019

We did not have any idea what people would be participating as there were not many people who actually joined the event online on Facebook or Shantidwara website, but to our surprise and delight we were joined by the most lovely participants and had just enough of chai to offer. #shantidwara

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
