Sally Duane

I tried out a class with Shilpa at Yogshakti on the recommendation of a friend over two years ago now and I’m still hooked!! I attend 3 classes a week and I have done two 21day courses and the Buteyko breathing course and I have to say it has turned my life around. The Centre is constantly evolving with new classes and courses on offer. Most of all it is a warm and loving enviroment, perfect for practicing Yoga!!

For me its a feeling I get from the moment I walk into the studio. It is welcoming and peaceful and I am always glad that I have made time in my day to get there. I need to thank Shilpa and Rabab especially for the style of yoga that offers me a freedom and flexibility in my body that I never even knew I was capable of! The teachers are highly experienced and take their time to cater to people of all different skill levels. My practice in the room is changing my life outside the room so thank you!

“Classes at Yogshakti are not only intense but also fun and the camaraderie amongst the students is truly amazing. It has been excellent for extending my knowledge and practise of yoga. I have particularly enjoyed the breathing aspect as well as understanding the art of meditation which I have wanted to do for some time now. I also have a better understanding of the philosophy of yoga and how it affects our bodies. I hope I can find a class in Melbourne as great as yours.“

Akiko K

“I started classes at Yogshakti 10 months ago. I’m amazed at how much my weak body has been transformed. I lost 5-6 kilogrammes, reduced my cholesterol level to about 40 points and have regular morning bowel movements. My severe backache has completely disappeared. I feel calm, gentle and comfortable. Yoga has given me a healthy body and joyful living. It has totally revived me.“

Angie Robinson

“Anyone who is concerned with their mental, spiritual and physical well-being should attend Shilpa’s classes. I have found her instructions to be very clear and easy to follow. She has lots of respect for her students and does her best to give each student personal attention. She is truly dedicated to helping her students achieve total well-being through her compassion. I’ve learnt so much about how the yoga poses and breathing works in helping us achieve total well-being from her. The classes are flexible – students decide which and how many classes to sign up for without any pressure. Those who are working or need to travel will find her schedule flexible and timing of classes so convenient.”

Lyana Cheong

“The benefits I gained from Shipa’s classes extended way beyond just yoga. It has had a substantial impact on the way I approach all my yoga classes. I now stand straighter and have more confidence as a result of my improved postural alignment. I have thoroughly enjoyed her classes, feeling healthier after each one! Thanks Shilpa for showing me the correct way to enjoy yoga!“

Yee Leng

“I was immediately attracted to Yogshakti’s calm vibration the first time I stepped in the centre. Love was always invoked in all their classes which often brought about a higher state of well-being and consciousness. It is so rewarding to know that we are able to share this joy and love with others, to make positive changes that ripple out to the world. Yoga is now the main source of daily inspiration in my journey towards self-realisation.“

Yanti

“I am happy to say that I found the practice of breathing and meditation very rewarding. It really evoked powerful sensations. Again I owe my utmost gratitude to you Shilpa for being such a wonderful and patient teacher, enabling me to integrate yoga into my life instead of just experiencing it as a classroom session once or twice a week. It’s a wonderful feeling…Thank you…“

Eri Takatsu

“These last 2 months have been the most precious in my life. It was the deepest yoga training I have ever had. I had heard that one could heal illness and injury through yoga and it was certainly true for me! I have regained my vigour. At the beginning of the course, I did not imagine that I could do the shoulder stand for 15 minutes or the wheel pose and the forearm stand. Last but not least, I never imagined I could stand on my yoga mat and practise every single day in the early morning.“

Shakira Zain

“I have become much more positive and learned to let go of resentment. I am more patient with my children and myself and seem to have developed this uncanny ability to detach and watch life from a distance.“
