Detailed Description

The sun rises slowly over the Himalayas and prayer wheels chime softly in the distance. Bands of red and yellow mark the horizon as you breathe in fresh, alpine air. Nepal, the birthplace of Buddha, is a country of otherworldly landscapes and deep-rooted spirituality. Yoga and meditation have been integral to life here since before written records, and it forms the heart of a culture that takes everything in and savors every moment. There’s no better place for a yoga tour that will deepen and improve your own practice?

Although this will not be a typical yoga retreat, it will be a yoga tour. Spread across three distinctive destinations, it will give you a chance to learn from many reputable instructors. It will not be a studio-based experience. You’ll further your practice beneath beautiful backdrops, as sunrise and sunset yoga brings new meaning to sun salutation (Surya Namaskar). Nepal’s sacred spots provide the settings, leaving you recharged and full of energy, ready to enjoy everything the country has to offer.

Between the yoga sessions, you will go out and explore temples and pagodas in Kathmandu, rhinos and elephants in Chitwan, mountains and monasteries around Pokhara. You will connect with local people through serendipitous meetings on the streets and a monk’s blessing in a small temple. The more you explore the more you will discover, including heritage remains, ornate architecture, alpine trails, adventures in the outdoors and quiet moments overlooking stupas. With yoga as a focus, you will experience the best of Nepal, with meditation and breathing practices (Pranayama) that emphasize the importance of taking everything in.

Kathmandu will be the starting point, with rooftops and peaks used as settings for your practice. Then, off to Chitwan to take you deep into the jungle, where the sound of elephants will echo past as the sun flitters through the morning mist. Pokhara completes the tour, a small town that exudes all the delight of the Himalayas. Much like the yoga sessions, each day will be flexible, which will allow you to take in a variety of sights and experiences. Rather than prescribe a detailed daily itinerary, the yoga practice naturally lends itself to exploring at your own pace and finding your own inspiration in this deeply spiritual nation.
