I was doing a volunteering project in Begnas and a group of friends wanted to do yoga so we approached this yoga centre and asked if we can go for a yoga class. Summer is not season for this and the centre was not running classes during this season, but we approached the yoga guru and he was very forthcoming and arranged a morning class for us. Yoga was very good! Meditation followed the yoga class and it was very relaxing and just what one needed to unwind. The view from the centre is beautiful and you can see the whole of Himalayas including the Fish tail! Although when we went there it was cloudy (it is a monsoon season after all!!),but we still could see peaks of the mountains. Its a very peaceful place and great for meditation and yoga-you are surrounded by quietness, peace and beauty of the nature.
The centre also runs retreats! And the yoga guru is very nice and full of energy and enthusiasm. Very nice people!

I've experienced 3 days in yoga retreat. It was the second time that I was visiting this place because the first one was so good that I decided to repeat. All the staffs are so kind that I felt pleased to be with them. Raj, the guru, is a bright person. If you met him you fell the good vibes. Everyday, during the morning yoga class I felt blessed with the beautiful view of Annapurna range and Begnas lake. The food is tasty and organic. I hope to come back soon!!

I did a 7 days yoga and meditation retreat at Begnas yoga & retreat and I enjoyed it a lot, it has been so far the best week of my visit to Nepal. It was a very intense experience which helped me to reconnect with myself in a family environment. I had daily yoga classes where the teacher helped me to improve my flexibility and to give my best. Even though we were a group in yoga class he was taking his time to go to all of us and correct the pose or to help us go further. I had also theory classes with the master where we talked about yoga's philosophy and life in general, very enriching for my self-discovery path. Apart from classes I had also free time to enjoy the beautiful surrounding (swimming in the lake, walks, etc.) and the amazing wellness services (sirodhora, mud bath, herbal steam bath, massages, etc.). And what to say about the food? it was absolutelly delicious, without any doubt the best food I have tasted in Nepal. Everything prepared with fresh and organic products with lots of love. One day we also cooked together the famous momos. Another day the girls from the center took us to dance with some of their friends as it was Teej day, we had lot of fun.

You won't find luxury at Begnas yoga & retreat but there is everything you need, they are treating you really like a queen, taking care of every little detail. I really found there a very lovelly people with open hearts who made me feel like at home. Every time I will be in Nepal I would definitelly come back to this little paradise. Thank you so much to the whole team, my new family: Rajendra, Simana, Shanta, Melina and Jyoti.

I stay in Begnas yoga for 10-day retreats. That is the best time forever, those 10 days was a very precious time in my life. I have my own business. My job is full of tension. I meet the Guru (Raj) as a solution to my all problem.

I am thankful for the following things.....

1. Day Start: we start our day with the meditation, which was taught a day before, with a golden view of Mountain range, Beautiful Lake & Forest.
2. Walking meditation: I did walking meditation in the morning with other who were staying with me there. Walking meditation was in the ground and on the walking path. It made me more aware. I felt very good.
3. I had a problem with my nose (sinus problem) since 5 years, Jalneti was the best for this type of problem.
4. We had two time yoga in a day (morning & evening), with full of joy. Raj can crack a jock and makes a jock every time. If you are planning to go Begnas be ready to laugh every minute.
5. Yoga Hall: At the time of yoga class, we can watch beautiful birds around the yoga hall. We can hear and see the singing birds. Yoga hall has a panoramic view. From where we can have the best view of the Himalayan, lake, forest & village view.
6. Yoga Class: Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar) more different than traditional, in the traditional system there are 12 posture in the system of raj he modified the old version and make 18 posture according to body science. Sun salutation is very dynamic.
7. Food: they grow onion, garlic, pumpkin, cucumber, beans, coriander, tomato, ginger, turnip etc. organic vegetables by themselves. They cook veg & vegan food every time fresh only. I love chatani most. Khichhedi with chhoka & puri tarkari go and try them. Raj, Jyoti, Ganga & Melina they have different specialty to cook different food. Every time I got delicious food. They cook all food fresh so some times food will be late.
8. Therapies: every day after the breakfast there is the routine for therapy. Every therapy is define to detox body. 1st Steam bath, 2nd Mud Bath, 3rd Foot treatment, 4th Reiki, 5th Nature walk, 6th Ayurveda Massage, 7th Shirodhara (dropping herbal oil on your forehead for half an hour) Massage and Shirodhara is the best. They gave service more then I pay.
9. Best talks: from 3PM to 4PM there always talks about yoga philosophy, different kinds of meditation, eastern philosophy, Bhagwat Gita, Yoga Sutra, Upanishad and many different stories.
10. After dinner always they do bhajans-Kirtans, mantra & Meditations by guru and Jyoti Ji. It’s a heart of the century.
11. They are helping four children who have no their father and mother and are not able to go to school. The money what we pay to them goes to those children.
Overall I was in heaven for 10 days which was full of care, love, relaxing and far from the chaos of city…… thank god.
I highly recommend you to visit and stay their…..

I was at Raj's place for a 1 week retreat. I had every day best food, i was treatet like a princess. The yoga class was good, i can't really compare it to other classes in europe, because i have not that much experience. But what i can say is, that Raj is a funny guy, try to makes you laughing. The feeling could arise, that he doesn't take it that serious sometimes.

His wife Yoti and the two other angels Melina and Ganga are very friendly and try to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
The rooms are good, hot shower not available all the time because of empty tank or electrical power outage.

The treatments were o.k., my favorite was the massage from Yoti. You have to be clear, that these treatments are not comparable to treatments in europe, because they don't have the same facilities. Even though it was funny to take mud bad, and i felt happy after every treatment :-).

I would definitely recommend this place to people, they want to relax, enjoy this beautiful scenery and practice yoga, in a familiar guesthouse.

Thank you
Maria
