YOGA TEACHER TRAINING & AYURVEDA COURSES
Shanti Gowans, CEO of Health Institute Australia, has been providing world-standard yoga education in Australia for more than 40 years. Many of our trained yoga teachers have successfully established studios right across Australia.
Our courses are authentic (they were developed by Shanti Gowans herself and not bought off the shelf). The quality of our content is unsurpassable from the years of Shantiji’s experience in this industry and our commitment to excellence.
We are blessed, honoured and we are loved… There are too many wonderful things that can be said about studying with the Health Institute Australia, I will state the most important. I did my Certificate IV Ayurveda Lifestyle Consultant. It was a life changing experience, there is no turning back for me now, studying under master Shanti Gowans and her experienced, knowledgable, compassionate staff was a true honour. I was treated as an individual,with professionalism, compassion and true dedication and respect for the ancient science of Ayurveda & Yoga. They are advocates to this profound way of living, as I now understand, the way to living a long and healthy life. I would highly recommend studying any course offered by the Health Institute, the support and understanding, along with the knowledge, passion and love, you cannot find elsewhere. There are so many courses on offer, the question is ‘which one first’? Life is a journey and to be guided on this beautiful journey you have a real living master Shanti Gowans, what more can one ask for, for those of us whose life she has touched, we are blessed, honoured and we are loved…

It has been a great experience that I’ve been having during all this time at The Health Institute Australia. Everyone is very kind and polite and always available to help me the best way when I need. The Wellness Centre is more than I expected with everything that I think I need to feel comfortable and inspired to study and practice. Now more than ever I’m focused in completing my course and go to Advance Diploma of Yoga!!! All this thanks to all the inspiring teachers there. The support from all has been amazing!!! The way the course is driven, lectured and its contents is more than I would ever have expected!!! Thank you so much for letting me make part of it! My experience at Nirvana Wellness Retreat I just have one word to define it… SPECTACULAR!!! It’s a little bit of heaven on earth for sure!!! Definitely I expect that Shanti Yoga will grow much more not just in Australia but all over the world!!! It’s not just about Yoga but all the benefits of it that I’ve been feeling in the last 6 weeks. The improvement of Health and Well-being is what everyone wants to achieve in their life and with all the practices and learnings that are present at the Health Institute Australia it is possible for sure!!! If I can help the Health Institute to grow somehow I will be more than happy to do it!! Congratulations and thank you to all of those who make this Centre exist!!!! I’m very excited to keep on going in this beautiful journey. With love,

My first Shanti Yoga class was between the ages of 8-10. Now as an adult, after returning to my classes after two years of overseas travel, I have found a inner bliss that has encompassed my being. After my first class back with Shantiji, the flames were reignited. I just knew I had to study deeper into this way of life. I expressed my interest with Shantiji that same day and chances had it – the Cert IV in Yoga Education course was to start that same day. From that day I have not looked back; I see old patterns shifting. I am connecting into my breath and myself on a more frequent basis which has in return rippled throughout my everyday life in more ways then I can describe.
