A yogi day is an opportunity to explore your practice in a deeper way. We offer programs that allow you to experience the art and science of yoga in a more refined way. We have a few options for your journey of self discovery;
Workshops for Yogis
A workshop is an exploration into a particular subject connected to yoga. A workshop is usually 2-3 hours. The topics are vast since the science of yoga is vast. We do our best to offer monthly workshops that give our students insightful and enriching opportunities to learn more.
Advanced Asana for Yogis
This monthly workshop focuses on the physical practice of asana. Our teachers will help you refine and advance your asana practice. In a supportive community you can progress and deepen your understanding of the more advanced physical postures (asanas) Its also a great way to build up strength, confidence, and stability gradually each month. The purpose of the asana is to open the inner corners of the body so that prana can flow more freely. This workshop is recommended for those who have already established a strong foundation in their practice.
Sight seeing for Yogis
Explore the culture of yoga as it moves off the yoga mat and into life. “Sight seeing for yogis” is an opportunity to touch the essence of yoga as it is woven into the fabric of life here in Nepal. This program is an introduction to the rich culture of Nepal. This country that has been a hub for spiritual seekers for centuries, a place that has been called the “abode of the gods”. With a landscape that projects into the sky connecting the earthly affairs of daily life with the divine celestial abodes.
The country is home to some of the most sacred Buddhist and Hindu sites in the world; Swayambhu, Pashupatinath, and Bounath just to name a few. Sight seeing for yogis is an opportunity to experience yoga through a different lens. To see this practice as a lifestyle. To understand yoga in a way that moves beyond asana. The sacred monuments and temples we visit are all representations and symbols on the path of awakening. Nepal has a rich legacy of spiritualty and wonder. We invite you to explore and be inspired by these outer expressions of enlightenment.
