"Classical yoga, classical teaching style"

Nepal Yoga Academy has two nearby locations and during my course there were over 20 students who took all philosophy classes together though we had separate asana and pranayama classes which each had around 10 people, plus any of the retreat guests who were there (those who arrived at the beginning of our training had easy classes and retreat guests staying toward the end attended our more difficult classes, which was great for some and frustrating for others. It seemed to be random which of the locations we stayed, I felt lucky to be in the one that feels more in nature that is actually pictured online. The accommodation in both are still lovely and the days schedule filled but with appropriate amounts of business and rest. The support staff are kind and helpful. Dr. Chintimani is exceptionally knowledgable about parts of yoga philosophy and gave a good foundation for many of us who only knew about the asana part of practice. Because of and in spite of many areas of improvement, they offer an opportunity to practice mindfulness, patience, and personal growth. It can be a very spiritual experience if you allow it to be.

"I stayed for the certificate and the people "

Small group (8 people, usually it's around 20), so the teachers could walk around and help and we had a pretty close relationship to the volunteer teachers Sara and Warren.

We had some really amazing yoga classes. Particularly likedhow Dr. Chintamani sequenced the classes and Sara's holding and feeling the poses.

The white house is like a small parallel world, with a beautiful garden, clean rooms, sauna and nice dining hall. We had almost all day sun and a beautiful valley view. The best milk tea and cookie supplier in Talkot was in only 10min walking distance.

The breakfast was lovely.

"Gens extraordinaires, cours très moyen "

Les gens rencontrés ont fait de mon expérience un mois unique et fort en émotion. La nourriture est bonne bien que très redondante.

Dr. Chintamani is a compassionate teacher whose knowledge, sensitivity, and energetic teaching style got me a powerful glimpse into the vast field of yoga science. My deep passion for my yoga practice and my karma yoga teaching got inflamed by Dr.Chintamani. I hope to be able to return to his classes soon!

Rachel UAE

Nepal Yoga Academy website

I have arrived to amazing retreat feeling burned out, tired and stressed. After one week of yoga, detox, organic tasty food, hiking, and meditation, I feel refreshed and new. The accommodation is clean and comfortable and all the staff takes very good care of you. Dr. Chintamani looks after each person individually, pushes you to your limits and teaches you to reach your full potential and how to achieve perfect asanas. The guided meditation daily lets you completely disconnect from the world. If you are looking for complete relaxation and tranquility with beautiful surroundings I will highly recommend it.
