There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is a miracle.

Your Hosts

You will be welcomed at Shanti by your hosts Wendy and Darin. They have been studying, practicing and living yoga for more than 20 years. Their desire to explore this ancient philosophy has taken them on many journeys around the globe. Both are trained in classical Hatha yoga, in the Sivananda tradition, and have studied extensively a form of energy and chakra yoga, Agama Yoga, in southern Thailand www.agamayoga.com.

Their daily Spiritual Heart (Hridaya) meditation practice follows Ramana Maharshi’s Self Inquiry Method.  During the winter season they take the opportunity to deepen their practice by participating in 10 day silent medition retreats in Mazunte, Mexico at the Hridaya Yoga Center www.hridaya-yoga.com .

Shanti, is a Sanskrit word that means peace. Darin and Wendy’s vision is to offer Shanti as an oasis of peace. A sanctuary where guests can pause, reflect, and connect in community with kindred spirits. As well, Shanti’s nurturing and stimulating atmosphere provides guests with the inspiration to delve deeper into the gift of yoga and the possibilities for transformation and growth.

Darin and Wendy look forward to welcoming you to Shanti.
