Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre information
Set amid the sand dunes of Arambol Beach is Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre, which runs five-day courses in hatha yoga from mid-November to mid-March. This is the winter centre of the Iyengar yoga school in Dharamkot, near Dharamsala in north India, and is run by the same teacher, Sharat Arora. Five-day courses for new and more-experienced students cost ₹3000, with additional days of instruction available at a reduced rate. Booking and registration must be done in person at the centre on Tuesdays at 2pm. Courses start on Fridays. There are also intensive two- to three-week courses for more experienced hatha yoga devotees and special short courses combining yoga with ayurvedic treatment. The centre also offers accommodation in the form of simple huts for students. You’ll find it a five-minute walk from the beach off the main road; look for the sign on the left-hand side as you head down to the beach road.
