One of the many reasons why people come from all over the world to visit Pokhara is the rich culture and many Yoga classes, training and retreats available. Finding a yoga instructor or yoga center in Pokhara can be overwhelming. Most visitors settle on where they want to spend their week in a retreat before they arrive by hearing about one of the many great centers available from a friend. However, there are more than just retreats, and not everyone has a friend that can vouch for their experience.

This is where we come in…

We have gathered a small select list of centers and instructors that we trust and know have had a great track record of supplying the best experience in a fun and safe environment.

Shree Thapa and Evolution Yoga

Lead by experienced Yoga Instructor Shree Thapa and located in the serene surroundings of north Pokhara, Shree Thapa provides yoga retreat guests with one day, three day and one week packages as well as classes at the convenience of guest’s schedules. Yoga package guests will find themselves transformed as they attend Shree’s morning and evening yoga sessions and relax throughout the day with various planned activities.

Shree’s style is relaxed, quiet and he is very patient as beginners and more advanced yoginis attend his sessions. Shree is recommended for those that are just getting into Yoga and aren’t into the more serious verpasana or long term intense retreats.

Vipassana in Pokhara, Nepal

Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India’s most ancient techniques of meditation. It was taught in India more than 2500 years ago as a universal remedy for universal ills, i.e., an Art of Living. The technique is taught at ten-day residential courses during which participants learn the basics of the method, and practice sufficiently to experience its beneficial results. This is an intense course for the enlightened that are looking to go to the next level.

To learn Vipassana Meditation, one needs to develop one’s own experience during a residential ten day course. Courses are taught by S.N. Goenka and are scheduled accordingly. There is an application process before being accepted into the course you choose.
