Yoga Day Out at the Sri Aurobindo Yoga Mandir
September 29, 2012 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm| Nrs. 2,500
Immerse yourself in a whole day of yoga activities at the Sri Auro Bindo Ashram; Thankot, with Nicky – Sivananda Yoga Instructor.
The Ashram has a wonderful view over the valley to the front and forested hills to the back. It is home to 140 children and 20 adults who have been orphaned or come from broken or very poor families, giving them a place to live in peace and security. The Ashram runs its own organic farm, growing many vegetables and they have 40 cows producing milk and biogas for cooking. They provide education in Yoga, weaving, Thanka painting and academic studies and sell all their produce to support themselves.
Come and join us for lessons with Nicky in pranayama (yogic breathing), asana (yogic postures), see a cultural performance of the Bharatnatym Dance performed by Laxmi Ghimire, and enjoy indulging in a wonderful fully organic vegetarian lunch!
