***YOGA EVENTS, CLASSES, CONCERTS***

Hari Om,

We are blessed to live in the lands with wide variety of Yoga classes to choose from. There is abundance of sacred spaces, temples, Yoga studios for us to step into in order to escape the continuous race of creating the material comfort. However, often, in the gushing flow of life, we find ourselves stuck with the habitual ways and keep the doors of opportunities shut, otherwise allowing the shift in the perspective, which essentially allows us to see the world in full splendour.


Most people, who already found their way to Yoga came seeking basic desire to have a better health, longevity, vitality, sense of connection with others and the reality. As the journey unfolds, we move through the chapters, dig deeper, encounter new teachings, new paths, enriching our experience, until suddenly finding ourselves in a state of peace with ourself. Often, however, the state of blissful peace that the practice of Yoga gifts us with, leaves suddenly, and again we get carried away by the sway of emotions, worries, infinite thoughts and confusion. Yoga journey is always filled with the continuous discovery of the transient nature of our mind-based reality, always a subjective experience, until liberation from the bond of Karmic pendulum comes, and the mind gets a chance to rest in peace. This highly-sought achievement comes to never leave, as it is, as taught by all masters throughout eons, entirely granted by the grace from above according to our applied efforts.


In Yoga, the main idea of the above and bellow, heaven and earth, connecting the material and spiritual realms in perfect equanimity, comes first with addressing the needs of the body as it is, working out the physical tensions, gradually affecting the state of the mind and emotions. At higher steps in Yoga, when the mind has been significantly purified, meditation state emerges spontaneously.


✡ Science of Yoga has originated in India, the land of Rishis - sages - many many years ago. Countless civilisations emerged and collapsed on the surface of our Earth, artefacts turning to dust, so that no modern material science can even grasp the depth of the culture once present. A whirling spin of the Creatrix from golden to dark ages, and so many times, in eternal dance of matter and consciousness, intricate “pa’s” of creation and dissolution until all bits grasp the inconceivable grandeur of the Two, which are the One.


🗝 Indian culture holds the key to the lock of our bonds, and as per Ashtanga Yoga of Patanjali, initial steps of the 8-fold path (Ashtanga) - social and personal discipline, asana-pranayama practices bring us into a state where the mind factually is capable to separate from the 5 senses into a state of pratyahara. Most of the meditation techniques are exactly that - routinely train the mind to split from the sensual world and discover the true potential of our being. What comes next, is the merger moment at the eyebrow chakra - Ajna - the seat of our inner Guru, our internal guidance, tapping into the world of Vijnanamaya Kosha - the field of intuition, from where we, as if surrendering to the flow of a river, just keep an effort to stay afloat and be guided to the other shore.


🎶 One of the most significant practices inducing the state of sense withdrawal is Mantra chanting. The pure sound vibration of ancient Sanskrit syllables is a potent way to connect with particular packets of patterns in our mind and release them. Hindu culture since the times immemorial holds the knowledge of all the spell “pills” to cure the mind of its dis-ease.


In ShantiDwara Yoga Temple, the powerful ritual of Healing Mahamrityumjaya Mantra and Havan is held weekly for the upliftment and wellbeing of all - participants and all those kept in the heart while the chanting is performed.

From 5 May to 23 June there is a deep-dive course of Sanskrit chanting on Sunday mornings, which will include Sri Hanuman Chalisa hymn, 50 Matrika sound meditation, and other Vedic prayers of sonic indulgence, which might include Sankatanasha Ganesha Stotram, Guru Stotram, Guru Padukam, Shiva Shodakshara Stotram, Mahishasura Mardini Stotram, Devi Suktam, Purusha Suktam, Ganapatyatharvashirsham. In this course we get a chance to weekly connect with the purest vibration of well-known traditional invocations that tightly grasp a hand of a soul and direct it in the world of power from within.

From 23 April to 18 June a course of "Nada Yoga Sound Healing” is offered by Vasudha on Tuesday evenings, who brings over 30 years of experience and training in the world of music, yoga and healing. She is a qualified Music Therapist, Music Teacher, Yoga teacher and an experienced Multi Instrumentalist Performer and Sound Healing Facilitator.

Friday, 26 April there is a classical Indian music performance at ShantiDwara by Soul Sangeet project of Shivam Rath.


Soul Sangeet is a new musical term & genre with a Sanskrit twist.


The concept is inspired by Indian Classical music but presented for a wider world. For the past few years Shivam Rath has been developing this world music culture with a particular passion for universal sound healing & ancient mantras. In all his travels across the world he feels that Indian Classical imbibes most of his preferred qualities with its vast spectrum of emotions, speeds & subtleties, its deeply devotional and vedic philosophy plus its inherent nearness to nature within the mystical world of Raga & its mastery of Tala (time/rhythm)


Plus we are particularly delighted to welcome back 8th generation Sarangi Meastro Sangeet Mishra back to Australia for his third international Soul Sangeet tour with Shivam on the 22 string Crystal Slide, Mico Sundari Vocals, Shen Flindell & Massimo Bidin both on Tabla.

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.

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.
