    CONS Cons: It wasn't real Yoga reatreat! That place should not be mentioned on bookyogaretreat.com cause it's nothing about yoga excercise! Instead of being realy practicing yoga , we were sitting and meditating in a dark room or been teached about Hinduism-covered up in other kind of ideology in my opinion. Food should be more light instead of dishes full of fat when You advertising "detox"tipe of retreat. One of the participants had bad experience with the teacher during the meditation but I will not go through the details. I like when I'm receiving what I paid for not what I only imagined....

    PROS Pros: Great location with lake and mountain view.

    Organizer response: In the very beginning - I always do write to read the information not to have any misunderstanding. (a) Yes, Tushita Nepal is not an exercise / acrobatic house. We are not meant for that. This is the biggest misconception that westerners have. They appreciate Beer yoga, hot spa yoga, talking in group yoga, tantra (sexual yoga) which is absolutely wrong. Be sure- Yoga is not an exercise and religion. You are coming all the way not for exercise / hands up / legs down. .. why to waste time and money just for physical fitness. Nepal is the pious land from where Tantra- Yoga - Meditation started So we guide authentic information TO : Connect with the inner energy through Gyana, Bhakti, Karma, Hatha, Raja yoga etc... It is good to put forth your opinion but may you avoid coming to Nepal for yoga-meditation purpose if you are seeking only physical fitness. .

    Review by Anna Voznesenskaya from Russia

    My fantastic experience at Tushita Yoga, Nepal

    PROS Pros: Tushita is a divine place indeed - on top the hill with an amazing view of the lake and Pokhara, surrounded with a garden with 64 kinds of different plants Rajesh and his wife are growing there. I came there feeling really stressed and tense and in three days thanks to Rajesh, his wise teaching, yoga training and his love for the world which he is generously sharing with others, I was a different person - calm and joyful. The place has unique energy about it which penetrates into you whether you wish it or not. It is an absolutely harmonious place and when you come you become a part of the harmony very quickly. It was exactly what I needed and I highly recommend the place to every one who wants to have a break from a hectic life, who wants to stop for a while and listen to his soul or an inner voice and find answers to some important questions which have been piling up for a long while.

    "Namaste! Staying in Tushita Nepal was indeed unique experience. Sitting in peace on top of the hill, guided preparation and meditation were my aim so I am quite happy, as beginner, to get it from my host, Yogi Panchavedi. Every day was filled new learning, sanskrit, and history of Nepal. Fine family atmosphere and lovely neighbourhood is what to expect there. Available tracking, walking around the hills, swimming in the lake, and Ayurvedic meals. All fruits and vegetables are home grown and organic. My brain and body were refreshed after only eight days spent in Tushita."

    "The views from Tushita are some of the very best views on planet earth. Anna Purna range / Mount Fishtail seem like it's towering over Tushita. Mount Fishtail is truly awe inspiring. The photos really don't do it justice. The food is AMAZING! Completely ayurvedic food all picked from the gardens around the property. The family make you feel like you have just arrived home for the very first time. It's amazing the kids are so happy & friendly. "

    "The teacher in Tushita is Rajesh Shestra he will teach you the origins of Yoga and give you an excellent overview / insight into the oldest religions - Sanatana Dharma. He is always available and is a very high level Yoga master. I really enjoyed every minute I spent with Rajesh. The Place - There is something really special about the energy in Tushita. With much free time you can go for daily walks / hikes around the incredible picturesque scenery. I stayed in Mars and would seriously recommend mantra meditation in that room. "

    "My experience - This is not the space for sharing this experience so I will just say that at the time I didn't really understand what happened to me during my stay but I have learned since is it was a spontaneous Kundelini awakening. It changed me profoundly at the time and allowed me to look at the world through different eyes. "

    "I stopped smoking and drinking alcohol, I also sent 2/3s of my belongings back to Ireland and traveled very lightly for the rest of my stay in India and Nepal, Physically & meta physically! My thoughts completely changed I had very little fear or anxiety and still to this day I experience very little social anxiety, where before it was a problem. My stay is Tushita is the number one highlight of my entire trip, it change me profoundly. For a spiritual seeker, you will find what you are looking for in Tushita. I can safely say my life is broken into two parts. Before and after Tushita. My spiritual development is not yet complete and I can call on Rajesh from time to time to help guide my path. I cannot Thank Rajesh and his wonderful family enough for a truly life changing experience."

    "Me and my girlfriend had the rare pleasure to spend 8 days in this paradise to learn more about Yoga but first I'll tell about the place and people because this contributed to the insights we got. The pictures don’t do justice to the place. It has the best views in region and finally you won’t want to move anywhere, not even for the views because they are visible from the window, from your porch and especially the sunrise view on the other side of house is breathtaking. And the same time you can enjoy time with the Shrestra family."

    "If people say that some place feels like home, this started to feel like a family that you lost at some point. Gyanu and Kumari made excellent Nepalese food, and always brought some more. I felt like being at my grandmas place where you never feel hunger. I even noticed myself dreaming about Gyanu’s food while meditating! When my girlfriend got migrane they relaxing gels and gave a massage. You can call that being beyond service. The kids came happily running home from long school day and always shared a moment with us and joined us for dinners. But the main part why we were here was to know more about Yoga."

    "And Yogi Panchavedi made us see. He teaches with the old vedic system which has mapped 5 different areas that create balanced and peaceful life where you connect. Physical exercise or “acrobatics” as he described it is just a small part of the whole system designed to allow human to live better a life. He teaches meditation, philosophy/religion, ayuerveda, astrology, asanas, breathing techniques and list goes on and on… The classes were focused and usually following our schedule. Best thing was that the groups were small and Yogi Panchavedi was available all the time, which makes the value you get extremely high. We also enjoyed the talks in the lunch and dinner table a lot."

    "They are truly heart-warmingly magnificent people. The place is awesome. The experience you will have there cannot be described, it needs to be experienced first hand and then wisdom put in action. Thank you Tushita for changing our lives for better."

    "I know Shrestha’s family when I stayed at their establishment, Pension Tushita at lakeside. Unfortunately, they were in trouble with the house-owner for contract. Since then, we had no connection. But luckily again, I met them at their lovely new retreat center. Being a nature therapist, I can feel the spiritual vibration. The surrounding of Tushita-Nepal is full of positive vibration. I found it as one of the best places for any person to find inner peace. The beautiful Annapurna Himalaya with the Virgin Mt. Fishtail is magical. The agricultural terraces of mustard field, herb garden, and the view of World Peace Stupa seen just in front was something like poetic expressions. As in the website written, the place is far from the madding crowd and meant for those who are in pursuit of peace and happiness. I am planning to bring yoga lovers small groups from Germany and Netherlands every year."

    "While surfing in the Indonesian island, one of my friends told me about awesome views of Annapurna Himalaya seen from Tushita Nepal. Then, I could not wait for that moment, so I flew to for Pokhara, Nepal. Once I arrived here, I was bewildered with the utmost tranquility, spiritual vibration, and the magnificent mountain views seen just in front. The whole Pokhara city was under the cloud for four days, but I could enjoy dramatic mountain views and sunrise above the clouds. I practiced yoga and meditation and learned the principle and truths of yoga. Moreover, a naked sky full of stars and the milky way was so stunning. I captured such rare glimpses of nature. Definitely, I had an experience of a lifetime. The utmost cordiality and homely atmosphere of Shrestha’s family made me think and write few words of humanity and brotherhood that the modern world has forgotten."

    "I was searching for some destination to release and refresh from busy life. Somehow, I found Tushita-Nepal along with an organic farming concept that lured me to go there. I immediately wrote an email to the concern person and received answer with so much warmth and closeness. I decided to go and stay at Tushita for a week. In fact, as seen in the picture, the location was superb - difficult to express in words. It is my pleasure to be amidst the mother nature with 360 degree views. I am totally refreshed after staying at Tushita. Moreover, Shrestha recommended me to see one of the astrologers (Sundar Paju) and found the lost way. I really appreciate for his great help. I really recommend for people to visit Tushita who are tired from their life and lost the way further to go."
