A few words about your teacher: Ramesh
“I grew up in a culture where Yoga was not something to do but something to be”. I lived with gurus in Shivapuri and in Rishikesh, Vanarasi, India where I lived a yogic life style.
Influenced by my parents who were devoted towards Yoga and spirituality, I started practicing Yoga since the age of 7 and been teaching for the last 8 years. Most of my teachings were done here at NEPAL, India and while traveling various European countries like France, Belgium, and Spain and so on. This gave me an opportunity to know the western culture and the need of Yoga in different parts of the world.
I strengthened my practice mostly in Hatha and Ashtanga. I am specialized in “Singing Bowl Therapy and Mantras”. I completed 200 hours course from “World Yoga Alliance” Completed my bachelors in Sanskrit mythology and studied Buddhism and Yoga in Nepal Sanskrit University.
Below is some practical information about this retreat in Nepal.
Pharping has two main caves that are considered especially powerful because they are also associated with Guru Rinpoche, the teacher that established Buddhism in Tibet. The area is sacred to Hindus because of the Dakshinkali Temple associated with Shiva. The whole area embodies the interesting mix of Hinduism and Buddhism in Kathmandu.
Several Tibetan Budhhist masters have been key in the establishment of Buddhist Monasteries in Pharping. – Chagdud Tulku (recently passed away, autobiography entitled Lord of the Dance) and Chatral Rinpoche (one of the eldest and most revered meditation masters ). After these two set up their centers, there has been a slew of new monasteries in the last 10-15 years. The Neydo Tashi Choling Monastery is the home of H.H Ngom Neydo Karma Chagme. This monastery gives education to many monks from remote areas of Nepal.
Home to 200 monks, Neydo Monastery is one of the most enchanting places in the Kathmandu Valley and close to many significant religious sites of Tibetan Buddhism. The lamas from the monastery decided to build accommodation for visitors on the monastery premises so that guest can learn about Buddhism and their monastery, and the income would help fund the education of the monks. The resort has spacious rooms, all with attached bathrooms, and is built in Tibetan style. The yoga hall has the view of the main monastery hall and the rooftop is also a great place for morning class with a beautiful view. You will enjoy the warm welcome and the shared accommodation in the vibrant Neydo Monastery.
