Why I Created Yoga Nepal
I've been traveling to Nepal since 1999, and I keep coming back. It was easy to fall in love with its friendly people, the picturesque villages, and even the dusty, colorful chaos of Kathmandu. From 2004 - 2006, I studied Buddhist philosophy and Tibetan language at Ka-Nying Shedrup Ling Monastery, in Boudhanath. Living beside one of Nepal's most powerful pilgrimage sites, studying the dharma, and immersing myself in a culture that sees the divine in everything changed the way I saw the world. When I returned home to Washington, DC, my asana practice intensified too, and I began to integrate Buddhist meditation techniques into my daily routine. Asana and pranayama created the space for stillness of mind, and meditation made the work on the mat even more fluid and effortless. The practices were no longer separate. This experience changed the quality of my life and supports me in everything that I do. This is why I come back to Nepal again and again -- to connect with the source of that energy, to remain inspired. And that's what I want for you too.
on the yoga nepal journey, you will experience:
- Daily yoga and meditation practices with highly skilled instructors
- The art of feeling grounded in every pose, both physically and mentally
- New and accessible ways to strengthen your meditation practice
- Unforgettable, powerfully charged sacred sites, temples, and monasteries
- Teachings from Tibetan Buddhist scholars
- Time and space to contemplate the foundations of Buddhist philosophy
