At Ishtadev Niwas, we believe that the entire Universe is interconnected. As individuals living in a complicated world, each of our actions has an effect on everything around us. The choices we make, our actions, our thoughts, all emit energy that leads us toward peace, or toward chaos.
Founded and run by the Living Yoga Society (2010), Ishtadev Niwas is an Ashram and Yoga Centre designed to guide people of all ages toward a better understanding of their inner dynamic. Our courses and classes teach people how to apply the principles of Vedic and Tantric philosophies to the modern Western lifestyle, rooted in the traditional 5 paths of Yoga and centering around Yoga Ecology, Ashram Life, and the science of Karma Yoga. We support people with tools to assist their exploration of their inner self, the Universe as a whole, and techniques for living in harmony with all the day-to-day challenges that everyone must face. We believe that Yoga is not something you practice, it's something you Live.
An individual’s journey through the Universe is greatly aided by a deep understanding of their own role, and the steady balance of their emotional, financial, intellectual and spiritual lives. From the health of the body to the health of the planet, the health of the mind to the healing of the soul, ‘Niwas guides people on the path toward improving themselves, and thereby improving the world around them. This is what Yoga Ecology is all about.
