You never identify yourself with the shadows cast by your body, or with its reflection, or with the body you see in a dream or in your imagination. Therefore you should not identify yourself with this living body either.Do not be proud of wealth, people, relations and friends, or youth. All these are snatched by time in the blink of an eye. Giving up this illusory world, know and attain the Supreme.
- Adi Guru Shankaracharya Ji

Repetiré mi experiencia todas las veces que pueda I
I highly recommend Shivalayaa Yoga Shala. Amazing place and wondeful people: not only Naveen and Diksha who treated us as their own family, but also all the members of the staff made us feel at home. The food was delicious and the TTC was beyond expectations so, if you are thinking about doing a TTC or spending a few days in India, this is the perfect place for you!!
Maravilloso. Me ha encantado aprender y vivir la filosofía del yoga en un lugar con tanta magia. Las clases estupendas, el alojamiento justo lo q esperaba, limpio y confortable, la comida sabrosa y saludable. Y los profesores un amor. Para mi una experiencia redonda, recomendable al 100%.
