I enjoyed my time a lot at the Himalayan yoga academy family! I started with a yoga retreat and continued with a reiki degree 1 course.

First of all, I loved that it’s a very authentic experience because it is a family business and everyone is helping and supporting in every way they can. Everyone is Helping with all questions and arrangements you might have.
I could not only learn about very authentic and holistic yoga and reiki (I realised how much is missing compared to western yoga practices) but also learn about how to make traditional food recipes e.g mo mo’s and curry.

Yoga retreat:
I’m sure you can’t get a better package for such a reasonable price! Yoga twice per day plus massages , sound therapy or adjustable sightseeing and a lot of tea and water. Everything according to your wishes, you just have to let them know what you need/want. I loved Atma Swamis morning and evening hatha yoga classes. So much passion,knowledge and fun! Also so much deep relaxation during yoga meditation classes in the evening. You can even request Ashtanga yoga classes if you prefer or simply mix it (depending on what your fellows want too)

Facilities:
It’s located on the edge of Kathmandu outside of the traffic and busy life from the city centre. It’s not completely in nature but the good thing is you have everything around you e.g shops, ATM, monasteries in walking distance! It’s a temporary location and they are planning to move more outside into nature.

Teachers:
All teachers are very experienced and contagious with their positive, wise and spiritual energy. I learned a lot and realised how deep the yoga and their philosophy is and how much there still is to learn!

Food:
The food from Kopila and the girls is amazing!
Very healthy and the food varied a lot. Tea is served at any time

I left the place hungry for more knowledge and yoga practice! I will miss the daily yoga practice and the people! I recommend it to everyone who wants to experience yoga in a traditional holistic way and still be connected to the city!

It was a beautiful experience to discover Nepal thanks to the help and assistance of Suyog and his family. The idea to connect you with local instructors and locals was wonderful. I spent a couple of days in a Buddhist monastery and had a beautiful and peaceful time. And experience like no other.
I was able to make a tour around the city as well and felt safe and if at any time i needed anything could count with the yoga academy staff. Thanks a lot. Namaste

I did the singing bowl training , level 1 and 2.
4 years ago I came for the ytt 200h.
I had a lot of expectations because this experience was amazing, the teachers, guru, cook, students, I loved everything and when I heared the singing bowl training was existing I had to come back.
And how great was it, fulfilled more than everything I could expect.
Thank you so much, guru Swami for your deep knowledge and your so precious teaching always with love and kindness, and singing bowl teachers and healers 🙏🙏🙏
Thank you so much Suyog for arranging everything more than perfectly, with light and patience and smile 😊
Thank you to the family for the hospitality, the delicious food, the joy and love that you radiate
Thank you to the yoga teacher for inviting me to join the yoga and meditation classes I could enjoy a lot.
Glad I could meet the students and people from all over the world during the dinner and lunch and share precious time for holi and the hike well organized.
I am deeply grateful for having such a great experience, I would come again for sure, for trek and visit and highly recommend the himalayan yoga academy.

I booked a retreat program of 8 days, which I spent 6 on a buddist monasterie Nagi Gompa. I was a very special plase to be, quiet as I wanted, in the middle of a national park, so it is sourrended by jungle. During this days, I did yoga classes, meditation classes, hiking, one full silence day, and could joing puja cerimonies as well as talk to some nuns and students. Pack a small bag to go, because you have to walk up around 2,5 km carrying it. They have good hot shower, good room, good vegetarian food and lots os hospitality. It was a great gift for myself.

I am really pleased to have chosen to do this teacher training course here in the Nepal . This yoga teacher training course is very professional and every day you feel the progress you make, physically and mentally.

I would highly recommend a retreat at Himalayan Yoga Academy. I had the an amazing experience. Suyog and the whole team made us feel welcome. The yoga was amazing I went in slouching and came out of it with a straight posture thank you to Prapti, she’s an amazing Yoga instructor. She knew my limits an pushed me and showed me that I can believe in myself. She gave me faith hope and courage. The meditations with Atma swami were really good I felt calm and relaxed. Spinal sound bowl healing with Suyog was just what I needed. And that massages and Siro Dhara the best.
The food was so tasty fall in love with the buckwheat pancakes.
In the retreat we had a day trip sight seeing with Pukar, he showed us all the sights of Kathmandu and took us to a very nice restaurant overlooking the Stupa.
Suyog took us on a trek, it was a challenge for me, Suyog helped me and motivated me not rushing me. Love every minute of it.
If you looking for a retreat in Kathmandu I highly recommend this one.
Both Suyog and his mum are amazing and every person at the retreat will help you grow and develop. I went in tired I came out from the retreat a new person with purpose.

I had such a wonderful spiritual learning experience at Himalayan Yoga Academy. I was there for only 7 days and I was able to learn various meditation techniques and spiritual ideologies. I highly recommend their meditation training if you are seeking to move up to the next level of your meditation practice. Suyog is taking after his father and is doing an amazing job running the business. It is a beautifully owned family organization and I highly suggest that you take the time to learn from them.

My friend and I had the most wonderful experience with all at Himalayan Yoga academy. The hosts were so accommodating, helpful and friendly. Their ability to tailor yoga sessions for beginners and experienced was EXCEPTIONAL. The food was INCREDIBLE! I learned so much about yoga and meditation (3 weeks on and I’m still embracing the lessons learned!).

I highly recommend Himalayan Yoga Academy!

Thank you soooo much to everyone, I can’t fault my trip and I look forward to returning. 😊💖

What a lovely experience. The 200 hours prepared me for the most importants parts of yoga, being thaught the philosophy as well as the asanas and meditation. The 300 hours following was even better. We had a smaller group and there was so much detail being given by the teachers concidering the spiritual and physical part of yoga. These 45 days really changed my way of looking to oneself, to find more rest, love and peace with every situation in life.

Namaste

We had an amazing experience at the Himalayan Yoga Center. We came for 4 days Yoga retreat. We felt from day 1 that we were with our relatives or friends. Suyog was able to organize everything for us: massage, meditation, yoga classes, singing bowl, transportation, city tour…Thank you to Suyog and his lovely family for taking care of us and making us enjoying our experience. Highly recommended!!
