Spiritual Retreat

Travelling Through the Elements of Culture

Travelling Through the Elements of Culture

One of the wonderfully unique things about a Yoga For The Soul Retreats journey in Nepal is that it isn’t a typical escape-from-the-world retreat. The journey begins in Kathmandu, where you can embrace the bustle and cultural richness of this vibrant town.

 

There’s no hiding away in Kathmandu. Life is right there in front of you at every turn.

 

The colourful prayer flags decorating the streets are a constant reminder that there is more to being human than meets the eye. The temples and monasteries serve to show you how inner beauty can reflect out into the physical world.

 

And then the journey will take you out of the city and into the mountains — because culture is not just about cities. The spiritual traditions of Nepal are as present in its rural villages as they are in its busy towns.

The purpose built yoga room was a beautiful place to watch the sun rise. Each morning we quietly placed our mats in a circle around the floral tribute mandala in the centre of the room.


Each day the friendly staff would create a different coloured floral tribute and they were

When my feet landed on the cold cement floor I could hear the familiar sound of chanting and the smell of incense on the breeze…

 

4 am was the new 6 am, where I’d make my way to the Gompa room for my early morning yoga practice…

 

For the past eight months the Ganden Yoga Chozin Buddhist Meditation Centre,

Pokhara, Nepal had become my home as the resident yoga and meditation teacher. 

 

This small cabin… Well, it really was nothing more than a cement slab, four sheets of fibro and a tin roof, but it was my place of solitude.  Yes, freezing in winter!!
