Spending a few days at the Purna Yoga Retreat Center was a big pleasure. It‘s a beautiful place nestled in the lush green hills of Pokhara with an amazing view over the lake, a very welcoming and passionate team as well as great yoga, sound healing, kirtan and meditation sessions.
I had an amazing stay, you instantly feel that the team puts their whole heart and soul into this place, making you feel at ease and at home straightaway. It‘s the perfect place to find stillness, peace of mind and great conversations. As well as for recharging your batteries after some intense trekking tours :)
Another plus: very good, varied and fresh vegetarian cuisine.

I'm so glad I booked here while staying in Nepal. I loved the atmosphere and it was just far enough away from the city to feel connected while still having privacy. I felt like I had friends within an hour of arrival and was a little surprised when I left just a week later to feel so close to everyone and so sad about leaving! I learned and loved a lot in that week - including my new favorite kind of yoga (Bhakti). I'll definitely be back.

Purna Yoga Retreat is an amazing place with wonderful people. I spent there 2 weeks as a start of my spiritual journey towards gaining inner peace and balance and I can definitely say that I could not make better decision. Pokhara has very good energies, the city is lovely. At the retreat center, there is a complex daily schedule including hatha yoga and different kinds of meditation focusing on body, mind and spirit. The classes are held by lovely professionals, the food is delicious and healthy, they also pay attention to the personal needs (e.g allergies), everyone is nice and caring. I can recommend to spend some time at this place whatever the reason for coming here.

I stayed at Purna for 7 days, and honestly this was one of the most moving and influential experience of my life. I have come home with a brand new perspective on the way that I want to live my life. I learnt how meaningful yoga practice can be, the benefits and importance of meditation, how to live without coffee, sugar and alcohol (and how reliant I was before this!), and how a simple life can be so wonderful. I am so motivated after this experience to continue to meditate every day and take time for myself, especially first thing in the morning to start the day off right.

The food was amazing, so nourishing, delicious and plentiful! I just felt SO good all the time that I was at Purna. The location is stunning, the connections that I made with other retreat participants were some that I will never forget, and the staff were absolutely amazing. The yoga teachers were so warm and friendly, and so so so good at what they do. Raaj, Yogesh & BJ are all so obviously passionate about sharing their knowledge and making people smile - and they do it so well!

Every day was wonderful and heart-fillied and I really can't wait to go back.

If you're looking for a yoga retreat that is relaxing, flexible, fun, healthy and in a beautiful location with beautiful people - then choose Purna.

So this was my third stay at Purna so you could say I'm biased but there is a reason why I keep coming back. The team at Purna deliver a retreat experience with love and care for all the people who travel here.
The yoga teachers are amazing including Maheshwar, Manohar and Yogesh who are true yogis who teach from the heart. The food is delicious and plentiful and I would recommend doing the Hatha cleanse as part of the experience if you have time. The sound immersion and yoga nidra are a nurturing and very relaxing. The bhakti yoga practice is always joyful and uplifting and brings a smile to my face every time.

If you are looking for a nurturing, loving space to refresh and renew I would highly recommend a stay at Purna, I know I will be back again sometime!

Thanks everyone.

I initially booked a 3 nights/4days retreat that were easily extended because it was simply so hard to leave this place! Great location surrended by nature, on a hill overlooking Pokhara and the lake the retreat offers cozy accommodations and comfortable common outside areas and terrace with stunning views.
The food is delicious, various abundant and very well balanced for a proper yogi diet and the house herbal tea always available.
I had a wonderful time and finally understood the real meaning of yoga! The physical practice,meditation, the sound immersion experience and the chanting sessions are perfectly scheduled so that you are experiencing every aspect of the yoga life. Thanks to the teachers who make it so special, Yogesh, Raaj, BJ led by Manohar.
Looking forward to enjoying another and longer experience with you again!

Each instructor was fantastic & wonderful in helping adjust to each individuals needs to practice yoga.
The food was also phenomenal!

I stayed at Purna for 8 nights as I was doing the Ultimate Detox Program.
I loved it all the time. The program is very exhaustive and well organised: yoga, meditation, wellness activities and massage, chanting etc.
The staff is great, friendly and helpful!
The food is extremely good.
I was looking for a quite and relaxing stay and it was beyond my expectations.
I was also surrounded by very nice people during my stay and I made few friends!
Moreover, we had the chance to go for sunrise yoga and I also experienced paragliding the 31st of December 2019, both the same day. Perfect way to end the year!! And unforgettable experience.
I am looking forward to going back :)
Thanks Purna for the my happy stay.
Namaste 🙏🏽

I went to purnayoga for 3 days and I tell you it's NOT enough.. The place was very peaceful and homey.. The staff were amazing.. We started the morning sessions with Mahesh and evening with Raj.. Both instructors were amazing.. I loved each and every session.. The morning meditation with Mahesh was so calming and yet energizing.. The evening yoga session is followed by yoga nindra was absolutely amazing.. Raj did an extremely great job in the guided relaxation ( I miss this session the most)! Also.. Yoga instructors were willing to give help sessions during the breaks.. Raj helped in two poses I was trying to do.. And three months later I'm still following what he taught me to achieve advanced poses.
Staying in purna yoga was a unique experience.. I'm planning to do again this year for a week or more.
