3-day Yoga Lifestyle Retreat with Emily in Nepal
November 11, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - November 13, 2013 @ 7:00 pm| 275 $
Emily: “Does it ever feel when you roll out your yoga mat that you don’t know where to start your practice? Do you want to develop your home practice so can take your yoga anywhere?
On this retreat we will learn how to do just that. We will focus on different types of poses and explore how they influence our body, mind and energy. By starting from the foundation and focusing on alignment in the poses, this retreat will ensure you can develop a strong, steady and safe practice. We will then explore the art of sequencing poses to enhance our mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
We will also use the time away from our normal life to delve into the other limbs of yoga and discover how these can be introduced to your home practice and into your life.
We will see how our breath changes our mental state and how we can use breathing techniques to pause our reactions, taking time to make all of our decisions come from a calmer, more settled place inside ourselves.
Whether you are a beginner or practice yoga regularly, come and enjoy the peace and surroundings of the retreat and take away a new practice to develop and treasure.”

I completed my 200 hour certification to teach in 2010. Since then I have both developed and intensified my own practice and established my unique teaching style. I have also apprenticed in a number of teaching teacher training courses to prospective yoga instructors. I am delighted to have the opportunity to live and practice in Nepal, where I plan to deepen my meditation and learn more of the local culture.
I have been profoundly changed by the gift of helping students in my classes and am humbled by the reciprocal nature of the student/teacher relationship. My approach to teaching yoga is deeply rooted in healing and creating peace in both body and mind to promote a serene spirit.
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.
Pharping has two main caves that are considered especially powerful because they are associated with Shiva (as well as the nearby Dakshinkali Temple). The caves are also associated with Guru Rinpoche, the teacher that established Buddhism in Tibet. So the whole area is key to the interesting mix of Hinduism and Buddhism in Kathmandu.
A couple of very important contemporary Tibetan masters have been key in re-invigorating the Buddhist practice at Pharping by establishing centers there – Chagdud Tulku (recently passed away, auto-biography entitled Lord of the Dance) and Chatral Rinpoche (one of the eldest and most revered meditation masters still alive; he’s about 100). After these two set up their centres, there has a been a slew of new monasteries in the last 10-15 years. The Neydo Tashi Choling Monastery was build four years ago and is the home of H.H Ngom Neydo Karma Chagme. The monastery gives education to many monks from remote areas of Nepal.
