“I am – and will always be – a student of life. I have taught yoga for 20+ years and received individual spiritual guidance by various spiritual masters and my aim of this course is to offer some simple ancient tools to help solve and prevent modern problems. Today many people are drowning in their busyness, forgetting to take care of their inner business. I would like to help people regain balance and control of their life flow which ultimately improves quality of life. I hope to see you either on my online course or at the weekly free live satsangs!”
– Govind Radhakrishnanan
Santhi Yoga has launched a six-week online course for all who are just a little bit too busy. With this course, Govind will teach how it doesn’t have to take a huge effort to regain balance in a busy and stressful everyday life.
You don’t have to be a dedicated yoga practitioner or own elaborate equipment to implement a yoga routine. Over the course of six weeks, you will learn how even a few minutes can make a positive difference in your life quality.
The online course is divided into six modules. Every week a new module will be revealed with videos, guidance and extra material. The course is build up a foundation of some basic exercises that will be repeated and unfolded as the weeks pass while Govind will keep a focus on specific subjects each week. This way you can receive the teachings in your own time and the material will be available for your to download even after the course ends so you can always go back and refreshen your memory or get inspired.
Free live meditation & satsang
Every Wednesday Govind is offering a free live Meditation & Satsang (spiritual talk) via Facebook live and Zoom at 20.25 central European time.
Govind teaches meditation with the aim of achieving peace for the individual and the world. There i much suffering in the world today with war, climate crisis and unhappy, burned out people. We all have busy lives full of responsibilities and it can be hard to show up every week at fixed timing. That’s why he decided to offer these free online Meditation & Satsang sessions.
When a group of people in different corners of the world are tuned in to the same focus at the same time the effects from our thought waves have a huge impact on our surroundings.
We always begin with a short meditation and afterwards Govind will be giving a talk about a certain topic. The different topics are suggested by the people who attend these online sessions and chosen by me. The topics can vary a lot from climate crisis to self-esteem and relational issues.
Everyone is welcome to join. You don’t need any experience with meditation. You just need to be open and curious about it.
Govind approaches the topics from the Indian traditional philosophy implementing Yoga, Ayurveda and Astrology bridging the eastern and western lifestyles.
So, get comfortable, make a cup of tea and join a meditation with people from around the world in your own home.
You can send questions or topic suggestions through Messenger at Santhi yoga FaceBook page or to email@example.com. Relevant questions will be chosen as topics in future broadcast.

Visit as a guest, not as a tourist
Get inspired from the direct touch! Govind invites you to “his India” – in his home country and to the mountain Arunachala where Govind has been meditating since he was a teenager. This opens an opportunity for you to learn from the inside of an ancient, rich and unique culture. Together, we cross the usual tourist border lines and make you feel as a participant rather than a spectator. All guest teachers -including swamis and other radiating personalities – are people Govind is personally connected to. The places Govind takes you to are places that inspire him the most whether it’s an amazing temple or a poor farmer in his hut. They all have stories to tell. In each step, you are personally guided by Govind.

Accommodation & Food
The base for the course and for the stay for participants with the standard package is the resort Arunai Anantha. Here Govind gives spiritual classes and we discuss and reflect upon our experiences by the holy mountain. We use the spiritual surroundings outside the resort daily and will spend much time in the peaceful vibration of the saint Ramana Maharshi in Ramana Ashram – just a five minutes’ drive away.
Arunai Anantha is located by the foot of the holy mountain Arunachala away from the traffic noise and crowds of the small roads in the ashram area in Tiruvannamalai. Besides having nice and comfortable rooms, Arunai Anantha serves nice Indian food in their garden restaurant and have a lovely outdoor yoga shala for our classes. In the afternoons, when the peak temperature will be around 27 – 30 degrees, you can enjoy the swimming pool or drink a cooling fresh juice on the terrace while digesting the inputs of the day.
Standard package: accommodation in Arunai Ananthas comfortable and spacious double rooms, limited single rooms available for advance booking and additional payment.
Simple package: the option for you who are flexible in accommodation and who do not mind a little walk to reach the resort. Near the resort we rent a house with single and double rooms and shared toilet and bath. The accommodation is simple: a room with a bed! The mattresses may be hard and you will have to clean your own room, bring your own towels, and wash your laundry by hand. But for you who like to travel simple this is a good way to cut down some expense on your trip.
