Each location has some spiritual meaning and benefit. Our focus will be to develop an inner awareness of compassion and kindness towards ourselves and others. Through this practice we will come to know more happiness and ease in life.

Be prepared to meditate mindfully and allow the beauty of these places to infuse inspiration to propel you further on your yogic journey.

This retreat has a strong spiritual focus but rest assured, you will still have the opportunity to relax, explore, and buy those perfect little gifts for yourself and others. nepal yoga retreat
