INSPIRATION & DISCOVERY
In November the morning mist lies like a heavy blanket over the mid-land hills. Beyond them lie the Himalaya, silent majesties that stand guard between earth and the heavens. With sunrise and the birds’ morning song the fog lifts. On a clear day, the mountains appear center stage.

Breathtaking.
Awe inspiring.

Their very presence is enough to take one into a deep, settled stillness. A stillness where everything is clear, connected and whole.

As steady as the mountains are, below them the bustling capital of Kathmandu and its valley are in full movement. Here, the ancient and the modern mesh. Living Goddesses and countless temples stand fast amidst the hallmarks of a modern metropolis.

It is chaos.
It is Life.

The chaos and the stillness, the new and the ancient, coexist in Nepal. It’s one of the land’s many paradoxes and many blessings that invite our minds and hearts to open: to new possibilities, to new ways, to new understandings.

In this land we call home, the seat of deep spiritual heritage, we invite you to deepen your practice of Yoga.  Living it on, and off, the mat.

On this retreat you will travel and discover both inner and outer landscapes.

In 10 days we venture along the winding alleyways of Patan and Kathmandu’s ancient kingdoms, into the hills where Gautama Buddha and Padmasambhava once found refuge, and to the shores of Begnas Lake, at the feet of the Annapurna range.

Early morning practices, daily discussions and evening meditations bring rhythm and focus to our days. Inner landscapes.

Visits to temples and vibrant bazaars, walks in the hills, massage, private consultations and personal time blend into our schedule. Outer landscapes.

Supported and guided by experienced practitioners & teachers, you are invited to tap into the sources of inspiration & clarity within you.
