Shree Hari Yoga is now offering a unique 200-hour Ashtanga Yoga TTC in India. Ashtanga yoga is a dynamic, powerful form of practice that involves following a set sequence. Based on the 8 limb philosophy outlined in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Ashtanga follows a lineage tradition that originated in Mysore, South India but has now spread globally due to its highly purifying effect on the body and mind. Ashtanga can be an incredibly beneficial practice to develop strength, coordination, flexibility, focus, and discipline. This 200-hour TTC opportunity allows you to focus on developing your personal practice, while also learning about the wider and deeper implications of this traditional form of yoga.

Location

Gokarna is a small temple town on the western coast of India in the state of Karnatica. This is located in the Kumta taluk region of Uttara Kannada. The main temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Mahabhaleshwara Temple, the temple houses what is believed to be the original image of Lord Shiva's lingam (Atmalinga).

Gokarna is known as one of the seven important Hindu pilgrimage centres. It is on what was once an unspoiled beach near the estuary of the river Aghanashini. Recently, due to the number of tourists, the character of the town has changed; it is no longer just a pilgrimage as it hosts tourists nowadays. However, a large number of devotees visit Gokarna to offer prayers to Lord Shiva.

Due to Gokarnas relaxed, unspoiled and rustic nature, many western tourists began visiting the place approximately a decade ago. Therefore enterprising locals opened stores and restaurants.

The drive up on the winding path that leads to Gokarna is scenic, with the rocky mountains and the Western Ghats on one side and the Arabian Sea on the other side. Gokarna is known for its beaches. Gokarna's main beach and Kudle beach are facing west. Om beach, Half Moon Beach, and Paradise Beach (also known as Full Moon beach) are facing south. Heaven Beach and Nirvana Beach (3 kilometres long with fine white sand) lie across the Aghanashini River.
