I had researched a lot of other yoga institutions in Nepal but my time at Nepal Yoga Academy has left me with a remarkable experience throughout to tag it as the best Yoga institution in Nepal. The qualities of the academy as per my experience that bolsters my statement are:

- Highly reputable institution/academy in Nepal for Yoga.
- Excellent Yoga Teachers (Highly knowledgeable, experienced, clear, interactive and very detailed)
- Excellent location for Yoga Practice (Serene, Peaceful, Quiet and with mesmerizing views of the green hills in the midst of nature)
- Awesome stay experience (A resort like feel in terms of stay with standard clean rooms)
- Great food (Timely nutritious and hygienic meals provided throughout the day to support yoga practice)

Highly recommended and the best for Yoga as per my experience if you are choosing Nepal.

Going to Nepal Yoga academy was one of the best decision I made for my RYT 200. I am really glad I chose Nepal Yoga Academy after a lot of brainstorming . The teachings are very interesting and original combined with philosophy, anatomy and physiotherapy. Asana classes and workshops are very helpful. The training here has helped me change mentally, physically and overall. I cannot thank the team enough for the quality service.

The staffs were very sweet and kind and they fed us so well. In terms of food, it is very hygienic and delicious.The ambience here is a treat, academy being very close to the forest, and the greenery is so pleasing that I wish to visit here often in the future, and recommend to anyone wanting to just take some time for themselves away from the chaos.

In short, top notch for yoga, great food, amazing ambience, and in a perfect location.

Thank you

I recently completed my 200 hour YTT at Nepal Yoga Academy and I had the most incredible journey. The course has been perfectly designed and has provided me with not only an in-depth knowledge of asan practice but also entailed pranayam, yogic philosophy, anatomy, yogic diet and so much more. With that, we were provided with insightful books to take home for our own self study.
Accompanied by this were many light-hearted, fun days for a well balanced month of work and play!

It is an honour to have been taught under an extremely professional and knowledgeable Guruji - Dr Chintamani Gautam. I am eternally grateful to him for sharing his knowledge and wisdom with us, for challenging us, for motivating us, for supporting us, for making us laugh and for loving us. Not forgetting his wonderful team who also worked so diligently in order to make our experience truly exceptional and supremely memorable. Although the course was challenging and tiring at times, being surrounded by such magnificent people made the difficult days a lot more manageable.

The academy itself is beautifully situated in the valley with stunning views of the hills in the distance. The rooms are clean and spacious, the food is made with love and is absolutely delicious, the gardens are very well maintained and the energy flowing through the academy is immaculate.

If you are considering going to the academy, whether it’s for teacher training or a retreat, I would highly recommend; you will not be disappointed!!

I LOVED the Nepal Yoga Academy & Retreat. The setting, in the valley overlooking the Shree Pancha Mahaxmi Temple is magical. The food was savory and healthy. I spent almost two months at the Academy, staying there to take 500 hours of yoga teacher training and it was life changing on many levels. First, the instruction from Dr. Chitamani Gautam (Gurugi) was fantastic. Everything you look for in a teacher: knowledgeable, patient, flexible and understanding. The accommodations, while rustic, perfectly match the vibe and energy of the place. I cannot wait to return

My experience taking the 200-hour YTT course at Nepal Yoga Academy was MAGICAL. Teachers, the environment, the energy, the food—everything about this place is beautiful. 27 days flew by in the blink of an eye despite the fact that I didn't want the time to pass so quickly. This academy is ideal if you're looking for a place to take courses in yoga, yoga teacher training courses and to enjoy yoga retreats.

I completed my YTT 200 hours last month and am really glad I chose this school. The teaching was very professional yet warm and supportive. Some days felt like a bit of a struggle with the repetitive nature of the learning, particularly the asanas, but I trusted in the process and in Guruji and it paid off completely. By the and I felt I had really achieved something. It's hard work, but fun and rewarding. I particularly loved starting every day with pranayama, it was a beautiful enlightening experience. The accommodation is excellent and the kitchen staff are amazing-so warm and kind, they really make you feel like family.

I recently completed my YTT from nepal yoga academy(june-july) and the experience was surreal.It changed my self proclaimed perception about yoga not just in terms of philosophy but diving deep into it's spiritual,methodical and core values.Yoga has always been very close to my heart but after being there for almost a month i have started religiously worshipping it, given the knowledge and wisdom i have been imparted.
I am more than thankful to all my fellow friends who became a family in such a short course of time,all the lovely staff members and especially guruji for changing my life and for better.
To anyone who wants to learn yoga and dive deeper into it's core essence,Nepal yoga academy would be a great choice also looking at it's unique geographical placement in such a peaceful and green environment away from the chaos of the city.I had a wonderful time and will always hold on to that experience and memory for life.
Thank you so much☺

I attended Nepal Yoga Academy after being impressed by the reputation and knowledge of Dr Chintamani (Guru Ji). I completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training programme from June to July 2022, with the primary intention to simply learn more about yogic philosophies and practice. The academy exceeded my expectations and met my intentions, plus more.

The location is a one-hour drive from central Kathmandu in the beautiful and remote Nepali jungle. I requested to stay in a room individually (usually they are shared) for a small supplement, and this was met. Though at first I struggled to adapt to the intensity of the programme due to my introverted nature, I expressed my concerns to Guruji and he was very kind-hearted and supportive, and didn't attempt to sway my decision either way. I stayed, and I'm very pleased that I did.

In addition to learning about asanas, pranayama, yogic philosophy, diet, and more—the academy gives you an opportunity to ask questions from experts, and receive specific and targeted feedback. The philosophy sessions were a particular highlight for me. You also get to be around like-minded people from Nepal and across the globe and form a small community.

While the exams (like any) are challenging and require hard work to prepare for, they are also very rewarding and met with kindness and lightness. The graduation ceremonies are very well structured, and the spiritual graduation is beautiful to witness and participate in.

Whether you want to become a yoga teacher, or just to learn more about yoga and all of its facets—this is the place to go.

I recently completed the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at the Nepal Yoga Academy and had a wonderful experience. I arrived with high expectations and the programme exceeded each of these expectations. It provided a holistic overview of what yoga is in terms of its history, philosophy, and application to the real world. The programme was very balanced with daily asana practices, pranayama classes, philosophy courses, and workshops. It focused on much more than yoga as 'exercise' by incorporating cultural and spiritual aspects that are authentic to the region and contributed to a great learning experience.

What makes this programme special is Dr.Chintamani Gautam and his team of professional, passionate, and knowledgeable individuals. Their love for yoga shines through in their teaching style and their delivery. Their effort to make each class interesting and engaging cannot be understated. They made us feel like family and made the academy feel like a second home.

Last, the food is absolutely delicious. The daily fresh, yogic food and the wonderful kitchen staff played a large role in making this past month memorable.

So, if you are thinking about choosing a YTT programme, I could not recommend this place more!
