My name is Shanti Gowans, and I am the CEO of The Health Institute Australasia and the author of Shanti Yoga™. I was born and educated in India, and now live with my husband on the Gold Coast in Australia, where I am still learning my Australian way.
I started teaching yoga in Australia in 1972, and through a lifetime of committed practices, study, education and travel, I have gained a vast body of deep knowledge of Yoga and Ayurveda and enjoy sharing these insights and wisdom with others. I've reached the point of success in my life, which allows me to give back in a major way. A huge part of my success is because of the many wonderful and loyal teachers, students, patients and support staff that I have been fortunate to have journeyed with during my years of practice. To them I will always be eternally grateful. I look forward to assisting you on your journey.
I believe in wellness naturally. I believe that the natural, health practices and methods of uniting the worlds of Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda provide the best options to live a healthy life. These paths share the common understanding that all disease is rooted in the mind’s disharmony with one’s heart, and it is a special and exciting time for the emergence of Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda throughout the health and wellness industry.
