Hari Om, Namaskar, Hello, 

I started and  manage two non-for-profit organisations, ShantiDwara Yoga Ecology and Wellness Centre in Australia and Himalaya Shuddha Yoga Centre in Indian Himalayas.

Feel free to join the website and share your Yogic inspiration for the good of all.

I am weaving the tapestry of life lightly dancing around the essential code of conduct of Sage Patanjali aiming at cultivating the positive attitude - Yama, attitude towards others and Niyama, internal discipline. Helps to define boundaries, nourishes the soil of relationships and allows the garden of the soul to be cultivated so that good seeds have a chance to sprout.

In Yoga there are 40 Yamas and fifty Niyamas out of which Sage Patanjali has selected just 5 respectively:

Ahimsa - eradicating violent nature of thought and behavior.
Satya - cultivating truthfulness.
Asteya - overcoming the desire to gain.
Aparigraha - overcoming the desire to accumulate.
Brahmacharya - establishing one's nature in higher identity.

Shaucha - purity.
Santosha - contentment.
Tapas - effort to transform one's life.
Swadhyaya - self-awareness, self-study.
Ishwara Pranidhana - faith in the higher power.

My other interests includes:

Bhakti Yoga:

Apara Bhakti (Karma Kanda, Upasana Kanda), Para Bhakti (Jnana Kanda).

Hari Om Tat Sat,

OM. Raise your energy by raising women up, UNCONDITIONALLY. OM.

Kirtan is a fantastic creation by our Yoga forefathers who knew the importance of listening and reflecting before expressing. There is no higher time spending than singing glory of God’s names. All other names are diluted.

Daniel Tucker is bringing his 3 session 1 Giant Mind technique - Learn to Meditate workshop to ShantiDwara (Byron Bay region). If you'd like to book a spot at the free introductory talk go to for all of the dates.

Yoga For Common Cold. Ancient Detox Tips. 

~ Neti - nasal cleanse with saline water. Stimulates brain and enhances connection between both hemispheres, soothes nervous system, cleanses deep stored mold and debri in sinuses, protects mucous membranes from pathogens, increases oxygen uptake to lungs.

~ Abhyanga - body massage with oil (medicated with herbs or plain). Supports good micro flora of the skin, creates a barrier for protection, soothes nervous system.

~ Nasal and Ear Oil - immediate deep delivery of medicated oil to balance doshas - imbalances in the body to bring about homeostasis, protection of the “gates” and stimulation of trigger points into brain. Part of Dinacharya routine - daily set of cleanses of orifices prescribed by ancient Yoga and Ayurveda.

~ Steaming with 3-5drops of antimicrobial immunity boosting essential oils is used in acute conditions when extra measures are required. It is the most powerful way of delivery of medication - straight into blood stream. Simple steaming with pure water (water after boiling potatos or water infused with herbs like calendula, sage, tulsi, oregano, thyme) used to relief congested nose, throat, blockages in lungs due to excessive thickened mucous.  

Tithi 2021. With Nityas. With some hints. When I do art, I usually do something that is schematic and helps to connect the dots and enhance awareness. Thank you Mum, for passing on that trait, sorry I did not take all of your patience and tidiness.

We all heard the saying "If you think you are enlightened, try living with your family". We all go for a challenge in order to perfect our human skills and often for a long time deprive our self of well deserved healing time. However, sometimes it simply becomes 'ENOUGH!' Check, if it is valid for you today and you would like to pack a tent, sleeping bag, drive to Northern Rivers, NSW and hide for some days tucked away from eyes (and tongues) of people.

Take this opportunity to run away from overwhelming demands of life with its stress and triggering behaviors around. Pick up your willpower and decide to reclaim special time belonging only to you - to reset and recharge the "batteries".

In the 5 days of Deep Meditation Yoga retreat in lush tranquil environment of Shantidwara in you will have daily 5:30am advanced Yoga and meditation classes to move the deep-rooted tension, daily profound Pranayama sessions. You will learn advanced Meditation techniques, get equipped with ancient natural cleansing practices to help stand tall in the face of worldly life, you will learn most profound Mantras for meditation and get to study Yoga alchemy in-depth with Raja Yoga tools.

To book email to or text/whatsapp 0404351252. 

Do we remember some of the first demands from our mummy to give us unconditional love? 

Was it around the time we only hatched and helplessly wriggled arms and legs in air while crying to be attended to? 

Did we go on and on trying to find “that” in the objects of our adoration? 

How many more crushes to go before realising that, like Hodja Nasreddin, we have been looking for the lost keys in the sunlit garden, but not in the darkness of the house where we lost them?... 

What does not kill us makes us stronger.

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.
