"Things have changed in Nepal since Bhagavan Das described it as being like a trip back to the middle ages.  But not by that much. Today, Nepal retains the sacred beauty that has been an inspiration to billions of people, while struggling to keep up with the 21st century.  The result is a sometimes jarring, sometimes lovely juxtaposition of chaos and stillness, framed by the majesty of the Himalayas.
Aside from moving there and just digging in, the only way to take all this in is with an experienced guide.  Marni Kravitz and Yoga Nepal helped me develop an appreciation for Nepal, its history, its spiritual roots and its culture that I couldn't have gotten anywhere else.  Using connections that go back for years, Marni was able to assemble a team of expert guides who not only told us what we were seeing, but helped us to relate all the pieces of the trip into a cohesive picture. 
To me, one measure of a successful educational experience is the degree to which it stimulates the desire for more knowledge.  By that measure, Yoga Nepal was one of the most fascinating experiences I've had.  It wasn't simply a series of sightseeing tours; it was a deeply inspiring journey into one of the world's spiritual epicenters. Two months after my trip, I am sill digesting all I saw and learned, and I fall a little more in love with Nepal every day."

"It was a trip full of surprises and eventful road tours. From the moment I arrived, I was totally in awe of the excellent care and love I was given. ...Marni Kravitz and her team of expert tour leaders and guides gave a comprehensive and detailed description of the the world heritage sites, from temples to stupas, from rituals to cultural practices. We were also privileged and blessed to have had meditation teaching by the monastery monks. ...I learned so much about Yoga in that 12 days, which has taken me into a journey of true appreciation and spiritual awakening of the mind which is what yoga is suppose to be.  I'm thankful to Marni for designing this trip out of passion and love for the purpose of sharing the experience and teaching the meaning of living in presence with our body.  If you must go to Nepal, go with Yoga Nepal with a purpose to find meaning in your journey. Namaste."

"The food was excellent, transportation and lodging were arranged so that you traveled with ease, and the guides knew the culture in depth.  But the best gift I received from Yoga Nepal was what I brought home.  The yoga teachers helped me strengthen my commitment to my practice. The studies at the monasteries helped deepen my interest in Buddhism and my meditation practice. Yoga Nepal helped renew my commitment to an important aspect of my life in ways that will be with me for a long time.  And the other travelers on the journey were great. My husband and I had never traveled as part of a group. We never felt like strangers in a strange land, but as part of a team of explorers."

--Marcella Gervais



"This retreat wasn’t just a series of yoga practices planned with some cultural tourism thrown in. Marni Kravitz has taken pains to design a spiritual journey that brought us close to the intriguing cultures of the land. Seeing the rich spiritual traditions of the land unfold right before you, as well as partaking in some activities of the people, made it a truly beautiful and humbling experience. If that’s not enough to get one appreciating his/her place in this world, the breathtaking Himalayan landscape will.  My fun-loving traveling companions were a bonus, and I was very fortunate to have these people share my eyeopening experiences.  All in all, this trip has a special place in my heart. Because of it,  I will never see things the same way again."

-- Evelyn Tay 




"Yoga Nepal offers a rare opportunity to delve into the world of Buddhist philosophy, learn about Hindu and Nepalese culture, and explore the natural and historical wonders of Nepal- all while starting or ending your day practicing yoga with remarkable people and inspiring teachers.  This trip truly changed my life.  I don’t know how or when, but I hope to find myself in Nepal again.  If you like yoga, are looking for a bit of an adventure and time to reflect on life in a beautiful place- Yoga Nepal is for you!"

-- Sarah McTee, Palm Springs
