About This Event
At Shanti Yoga School, they are honored to offer you authentic experiences. Become a Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher. Through ancient yogic techniques, they aid your transformation into your best self. They are simply reflecting the light in you. It is their pleasure to serve. Namaste. Their mission at Shanti Yoga is to teach authentically so you, and all students, can spread yoga across the globe. When everybody in the world becomes a yogi, suffering will end. The program is the most well-rounded training available today. You will learn about all aspects of yoga from the classical, modern, physical, spiritual, energetic, and emotional. The emphasis is on teaching true yoga as defined in ancient texts. Accordingly, they see yoga as a means to understand the self beyond the physical. Though there will be plenty of exercises, they pride themselves on teaching the more subtle and complete definition of yoga. You will learn the world’s most popular and versatile physical yoga asana classes: Hatha, Vinyasa flow, Yin, and Restorative. In addition, you will be introduced to many ancient, often not taught techniques to help you in the future: joint exercises, kriya (cleansing techniques), and Ayurveda - a school of ancient Indian medicine and yoga's sister science.
Teachers were supportive. They know what they're talking about. Very professional. Very friendly. And the place here is fantastic. It's perfect for a yoga course.

Menu/CuisineTo keep costs as low as possible for you, Shanti Yoga School's teacher trainings do not include food. However, there are many local restaurants within walking distance - all with gorgeous beach views. The food is locally-sourced, cooked to modern health standards, and very nutritious.
Dabolim airport in Goa is the nearest airport, 160 km away. It is well connected to Indian and international cities.
Gokarna has its own rail link which is well connected with Margao station.
The last train from Margao to Gokarna station leaves at 1 PM and takes 1.5 – 2.5 hours, depending on which train you take.
Alternatively, you can take the train to Ankola station which is about 20 kilometers away from Gokarna. This train journey is also 1.5 – 2.5 hours, depending on which train you take. From Ankola station, take a taxi or bus to Gokarna town.
No need to book train or bus tickets in advance. Buy your ticket at the station directly.
Many buses connect to Gokarna from cities such as Madgaon (125 km), Mangalore (225 km), Dabolim (140 km) and Bangalore (475 km). The exact routes and details change too often so you’ll have to ask at the bus station. Often you’ll have to transfer buses multiple times so it is not recommended.
If you want to take the bus from Dabolim airport you can get a taxi to the local bus stand, take a bus to Karwar, and transfer to another bus to Gokarna.
From the airport or train station you can take a taxi to our location. This is our guest’s preferred option. Be sure to book at the airport’s pre-pay designated stations for the best price. Prices change all the time but should be around $65 USD one-way. We can assist with pre-booking a taxi but it’s often cheaper if you book direct at the airport.
The taxi will take you to Gokarna town, or to the entrance of Om Beach. It’s better to take the taxi to Gokarna and then take a rickshaw to Om Shree Ganesh.
It takes 3.5 – 4.5 hours to get from Dabolim airport to Gokarna town by taxi. Average is 4 hours. It depends on traffic, time of day, etc.
Important: There is no ATM at Om Beach so take money out PRIOR to leaving Gokarna town. No need to exchange money in advance – just use ATM. We recommend SBI (State Bank of India) because they typically don’t charge fees.
From Gokarna train station: hire a tuk tuk (~400 Rupees, one-way) and ask them to drop you at Om Shree Ganesh at Om Beach. If they don’t know where that is, ask to drop at tuk tuk stand in Gokarna, and ask there to be dropped at Om Shree Ganesh.
If taxi drops you in Gokarna town (recommended): hire a tuk tuk (~200 Rupees, one-way) and ask them to drop you at Om Shree Ganesh at Om Beach.
If taxi drops you at the entrance to Om Beach (not recommended): you can walk 20 minutes down the cliff steps and through the beach until you reach the Om Shree Ganesh.
Once at the Om Shree Ganesh Restaurant, ask the front desk how to get to Shanti Yoga, or follow signs.
