Yoga weekend with renowned yogis Emil & Anouk: Beyond the asana
March 29 - 30| 12,500
Join Pranamaya for this unique opportunity to study under very special international guest teachers Emil Wendel and Anouk over a weekend at Neydo Monastery.
Sharing their deep love of Yoga practice and philosophy and their years of experience as practitioners, as teachers and as teacher trainers, Emil and Anouk will guide students through an extraordinary and profoundly inspiring weekend, set in the lush hills of Pharping.
Emil was born in Switzerland and has been living in Asia since the mid-seventies, studying Sanskrit and Indian Dharma on the Subcontinent, as well as Chinese Philosophy and Taoism in East Asia.
His long residency of 25 years in Nepal and India has allowed Emil an exceptional insight into the depth of Indian civilization and its philosophical current. Emil instructs in teacher training programs for Yoga Arts of Australia, Purple Valley of India, and some European training schools, in the subjects of Prânâyâma, meditation and yoga philosophy, the latter a series of lectures encompassing the known history, the different disciplines and traditions, and the personalities and masters of Yoga. For more information on Emil’s yoga and his tour schedule see www.beyond-the-asana.com
Anouk was drawn to yoga in 1998 and her sadhana has never left her since. She completed her first teacher training at Brahmani Yoga in 2009 and an advanced one two years later with Shakti Spirit.
After teaching at Yogashala Reykjavik, Anouk has had the privilege to assist and teach in several of Brahmani’s Teacher Training Programs in India and conduct further public classes of asana in a variety of styles and pranayama and meditation.
Anouk sees teaching as an act of giving and devotion, her intention is to guide and inform students and to support them in developing their own self practice, physical and spiritual.
We will have an early start on Saturday (confirmed time and departure point tbc, but estimated 7am) to maximise the weekend together. The weekend will include morning asana practices with Anouk in the stunning yoga hall of the temple overlooking the Himalayan foothills, Philosophy with Emil, instruction and practice in Pranayama (breathwork), mudra sequences to influence our flow of energy, film and discussion on the neuroscientific links to meditation, and guided meditation practice.
We expect to be back in KTM around 7pm.

The lamas from the monastery decided to build accommodation for visitors on the monastery premisses so that guest can learn about Buddhism and their monastery, and the income would help fund the education of the monks. The lovely guest accommodation has spacious and modern rooms, comfortable beds for deep and refreshing sleeps, all with attached bathrooms, and built in Tibetan style. The yoga hall has the view of the main monastery hall and the roof top is also a great place for morning class with a beautiful view. Kunsang, the Tibetan chef, cooks a great fusion of Tibetan, Indian and Nepali vegetarian food which always delights our guests.
