"Perfect yoga retreat for Pokhara sightseeing vacation!"
I absolutely loved spending my vacation in Pokhara at Atmashree Yoga! After a month in Kathmandu for ytt it was time to relax somewhere peaceful and I was still eager to learn Yoga under the guidance of as many teachers as possible while in Nepal and really needed a break from the busy city. The retreat I chose was a Yoga sightseeing vacation. It was awesome! We went to different locations at sunrise for morning Yoga and the views were amazing! We did early sessions at the World Peace Stupa, Sarangkot and Begnas Lake which were beautiful. Atmashree is located in Happy Village which is a quiet and peaceful area of the lake. The lake view is beautiful with all the paragliders flying in the sky nearby. There were such lovely scenic areas where we got to take mindful morning walks which I was there one morning to join. We ate so many great meals home cooked by Sita. She took such good care of us and always gave us a new, fresh and delicious meal... Each one was different! The food was so plentiful and good! The daily Yoga Nidra and chanting were amazing. The Yoga was great and I got to attend all the daily classes between visiting the sightseeing locations. The family was so nice and every teacher so caring and knowledgeable. Mantra, Saurabh and Raj were so helpful and fun. I learned so much from them and met amazing travelers from around the world. I can't wait to return and hopefully join Atmashree for a Yoga trek. They are family now and I miss them so much!

"Awesome 8 days!"
I am a yoga beginner and this was my first 8 days retreat. I liked basically everything about the place! Gentle yoga class in the morning, two meditation sessions and my favorite was definitely the more challanging evening sessions.
The teachers are so welcoming and whenever I had a question they were happy to help. Special thanks to Saurabh who helped my put together an individual flow to practise at home.
I am very happy that i went for the 8 days instead of just 4. Even the 8 days were so quickly over and i just got really into it by the end.
And the food was sooo good :)

"Excellent place for Yoga, Meditation & Relaxation "
Each morning you will be greeted by the mesmerizing view of FEWA lake and the mountains. The morning yoga practice are held in the idyllic locations such Begnas Lake, Sarangkot View Point, etc. The Yoga instructors are very patient and encouraging to beginners like me. Excellent location, food, service, yoga teaching etc. Way beyond my expectation.
from Nepal, January 2019
"A wonderful experience!"
The programming is designed very well, with activities and scheduling being really thoughtful and well-implemented. Morning yoga overlooking the Himalayas was incredible, and the instructors complemented one another's' styles and truly understand yoga as a spiritual as well as health practice.
from United Arab Emirates, September 2018
For me it was my first yoga retreat and I loved the whole experience of it. I felt welcomed and comfortable being around, like being part of their family. It was more than yoga, I learned breathing practices and meditation techniques. It helped me a lot to sort my own thoughts.
Location was very good as well, just quiet enough not to be distracted. Our sunrise trips and doing morning yoga was absolutely divine.
On top of everything food should be really mentioned here. All Nepalese dishes were so good, that it made me interested in cooking it back home.
from Nepal, January 2020
"Super spiritual getaway"
This place is a true authentic meditation and yoga experience we could not find in the western world. You get to know many different ways of meditation, chanting, breathing, yoga, everything to understand what it means to live this way of life. The home is a true home with the family around, the mom cooking, children playing etc. The food is incredible. Real homemade Nepal food as much as you like and you won't find better even in the city. I enjoyed my stay a lot, especially since it gave me new perspectives on my life, how to live it, what's important and how I can achieve what I truely feel. Also Saurabh gave me a lot of new insights about my own yoga skills, what I can do, what I have to work on and what I am able to do. Thank you for that. This helped me a lot to develop myself in the best possible way. I hope I will be back one day. NAMASTE

"Loved it "
Loved every single moment of my stay in Atmashree. The team was very helpful and receptive to any request, food was great, the yoga and all the other practices were very interesting and unique. Loved the kirtan nights a lot. I also have been trekking organized by Atmashree and couldn’t be more grateful for all the care I got along the way. Highly recommended for a blissful vacation.
from Spain, October 2019
"Quality yoga retreat "
I really enjoyed the yoga and the support provided by the teachers during the classes. After ten days I feel I have more than a basic knowledge of yoga and meditation. I also enjoyed the extra activities such as an early morning sunrise hike, yoga over the hill over looking the smaller lakes. Food was fantastic and plentiful. Overall a really positive experience, I would definitely come back.

Wonderful people met and very good teachers. Spending time at atmashree is about sharing, not only yoga. It s a peaceful place you d like to stay more. Thank you everyone for time shared and chanting too 😁
from Great Britain, September 2019
"An incredible experience "
You could not ask for more from a Yoga retreat that combines both mental and physical elements of yoga.
The team at Atmashree are great and accommodate to your every need. The location speaks for itself both the actual retreat centre and the trekking routes to Poon Hill.
Also need to point out that I have lower back issues so its crucial that you tell the teachers your issues and if something does not feel comfortable or aggravates the issues then be careful and don’t try and push yourself.
It was truly unforgettable experience with some great people. Will recommend this to anyone and cannot wait to come back.

"Amazing and relaxing experience"
I felt like I'm home everyone was super friendly and helpful, the food was really good. I learned so much from the instructors and improved a lot during the 9 days I've spent there. The location is amazing, waking up early morning with a view of the lake was really spectacular and relaxing. I'll definitely come back.

the depth and training of the staff was exceptional. Classes were a balance of asana and yoga teachings, perfectly tailored to the abilities of the students. Raj and his family were very welcoming, and the food was wonderful home cooked Nepali vegetarian. everything was completely stress free, and other local activities such as parasailing or rafting were easily accommodated in the schedule.

This yoga retreat is all about connection and synergy. The instructors were caring and kind and the food was plentiful and healthy vegetarian. We (me and the other participants) formed a beautiful friendship with our instructors and each other. I loved the singing bowls sessions and the chanting.

"Excellent retreat for those seasoned and new yoginis"
The day started at 6:00AM with a silent walk and ended at about 9:00PM with kirtin chanting. All classes were excellent and ranged from gentle to more intense yoga, to guided meditation, to chanting. The food was good and the staff very attentive.

"A wonderful experience"
It was a great experience. I enjoyed the yoga and felt I learned a lot. I tried new things. I had a single room which was very nice, lovely views of the lake. It was a good place to recharge and reconnect with yourself again. The food was delicious. Being able to do yoga in different locations on the vacation package was very special... I loved practicing yoga outside and also seeing the local area.
from Great Britain, April 2019
Beautiful location, great food, friendly people, not overcrowded. Accommodation was modern, clean and comfortable. Yoga was excellent, looked at many different aspects and suitable for various levels. One of the best things I've ever done, don't hesitate to book!

"Fantastic 4 day Retreat"
A combination of beautiful location, delcious local food and the most accommodating staff!
Each day we had several different classes to attend, 2 hour and a half yoga classes, meditations, a morning silent walk (which became one of my favourite things!)
The staff were so welcoming and friendly, every person there would be more than happy to help with any request.
The classes were perfect, the instructors never pushed you too far and always made you feel comfortable however they were knowledgeable in their practise they taught. More importantly they wanted to educate you in all aspects of yoga so you can understand your practise more deeply.
Thanks for a wonderful stay!
from Nepal, April 2019
I really enjoyed the morning meditation walk/hike. I arrived sick so I missed a lot of class. They offered Hatha yoga which was good although I was hoping for more. Perhaps some ashtanga and vinyasa flow yoga style. They were really good on focusing on breathing technique and meditation/relaxation.

"Huge disappointment "
Food was great, nice accomodation
They all have a good heart

"4 Nights was not long enough I could have spent a few weeks"
From touching down and Pokhara airport after a day of travel I was greeted by Prabhakar and driven through the little winding streets of Pokhara town to the Atmashree Center. Straight into Yoga the first day and a delicious home cooked meal, then down to sleep for trekking up to Australian camp the next day. Australian trek camp was just the right pace for a short stay, yoga in the morning and evenings with Saurabh's great focus on corrections and and breathing technique. Daily meditations, favorites included Saurabh's guided mediation on a rock overlooking the valley and Mantra's Singing bowl meditation at the center. Loved the food on the trek and the at the center dahl bart was delicious and never far form a hot cup of ginger and honey tea.

"great stay "
I loved the fact that the instructors and all of the staff were friendly and ready to help with any issues, whether to do with yoga or other issues. They were always onsite and helpful. The yoga sessions were very good and were for all explained carefully with reasons for everything that made a lot of sense.
from Nepal, January 2019
"Excellent yoga retreat"
The classes were thorough and well explained, very varied and all the teachers were fantastic and very passionate, all with an in depth knowledge into the practice of yoga. I learn't so much, more than I could have hoped and expected in such a short time. The welcome into the family life of the yoga centre makes this feel like home. The location is beautiful, oh and the food is delicious!! i hope to return again :-)

"Excellent Yoga Retreat experience "
The yoga retreat was an amazing experience, my boyfriend and I did 4 days/ 3 nights and would love to come back and stay longer! The programme is very well organised with different classes and meditation sessions every day. The teachers are highly experienced and very kind. Raj who runs the place is incredibly helpful and goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome and comfortable! The food was also very varied and very tasty and nutritious, it was like a home far away from home!

"Great place for a beginner like myself!"
Atmashree is run by a lovely family, all helping each other to make the retreat a great experience for the guests.
The location is amazing, on the other side of Phewa lake - peaceful, beautiful and dare I say mindful.. I really liked the very different sessions each day, and the retreat has made me very interested in the enormous world of yoga.
from Israel, November 2018
The mixture of yoga and trecking and the freedom Raj gave us to choose what we would like to learn in yoga. Beautiful views, great and friendly staff, the yoga center was beautiful and right on the lake. really good food. I loved the first camp we stayed at near Australia Camp, it was homey, cozy and really peaceful with breathtaking views of the mountains.
from United States, November 2018
"Fantastic experience with truly dedicated instructors "
I loved the structure of the days and that your not just doing yoga classes but you are introduced to every aspect of Hatha yoga.
The instructors are not doing this for the money you can truly see this and their passion really shows. They will take the time to explain things if you don’t understand and they are always around do give help and advise outside class times.
The food is amazing also and always plenty to go around.
Already contemplating the same time next year.

"Amazing sunrise yoga retreat!"
I had a great experience at Atmashtree, I picked a package which includes sunrises, sightseeing and yoga and it was absolutely amazing. I was very lucky with the weather, It was pretty much the whole time clear. The atmosphere was great, very familiar, very auténtic and amazing food. Had lake view from my room so couldn’t ask for anything else. Very well recommended!!!

"Amazing 4 days"
I loved the atmosphere at this yoga retreat, the instructors are all really patient and great with beginners. The food was incredible, traditional Nepalese dishes but lots of variety. The location was lovely, just a little way out of Pokhara so it is much quieter and more relaxed but still with beautiful lake views.

"Couldn't have been any better! "
Our time at the Atmashree yoga retreat was perfect! I can't think of a sing thing that I would improve. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the teachers really knew everything about yoga. The food and accommodation was great. We would have stayed forever if we could.

"Real yoga experience"
I loved the staff. The yoga instructors were friendly and extremely experienced. Atma's family lives in the retreat and it's so special to spend time with them. His wife cooks amazing food. She is so talented.
You practice yoga 4 times a day. I loved every minute of it. I learned a lot of new postures but more importantly I learned the theory behind the yoga.
The schedule is great. The timing between meals was difficult to get used to at first, but after a while I loved when we received tea and meals.
The accommodations are nice. It's far enough away from Pokhara that you can enjoy the peacefulness of the lake.
The actual hiking is a challenge, but if it weren't for Swabhiman, I would have been sore for the entire trek. I did not feel sore at all. The entire trip was amazing.
from Nepal, January 2018
"Great way to see the sites while getting some yoga in"
Everyone was very nice and attentive. When I was sick they would check on me several times a day so I didn't have to leave my room if I didn't want to. The yoga was also great both very knowledgeable and learnt a lot more then just "poses

"Yoga Retreat in the Hills"
Was here for 4D3N and was welcomed by a very warm family. Raj and Mantra are very knowledgeable and will impart yoga philosophy extending classes beyond asanas and meditation. Morning sunrise walks were unforgettable. The retreat is nestled in a charming, tranquil part of Pokhara away from tourists. Each meal is a treat (they insist you refill the delicious Nepali vegetarian cuisine)! Had a nice big and clean room with awesome view of Phewa Lake from the property. It's off-peak season so we had a small group which was really nice and Raj and Matra were able to customise the retreat accordingly. Perfect location to unwind - highly recommended!

Mantra Sessions with Mantra, the gentle Hartha Yoga Class with Surya and the powerful Classes with Saroubh. Also the daily Yoga Nidra Classes, and the use of the Singing bowls in between. The theoretical basics of Yoga Philosophy and The different kinds of Meditation Classes. Every Single teacher has so much knowledge and wisdom to offer and is very happy to share it with you at any time. Also i loved the food and even through everybody worked very hard, they were smiling all day. I am very grateful that i found this place and of course i will come back again!

From the very beginning I stepped in at Atmashree, people there were very kind and welcoming. Every single one of them were so helpful, attentive, patient and extremely warm, I could not have been more comfortable and happier during my time there... Missing them so much already!
The delicious food, the yoga classes, the guidance, the chanting, the fantastic and challenging trekking, the astonishing view of some 8000-meter peaks, the wild nature, the time spent together talking and sharing experiences, the ups and downs, I would not change anything! I felt literally flowing there and so much free to be just me, such a good feeling!
There are not enough words to express my gratitude for the sweet experiences and memories I now hold. Thank you Mantra for being so supportive, the trekking and yoga combination was superb! Really looking forward to seeing them again, I highly recommend Atmashree to anyone else willing to immerse in nature and yoga practices, to allow themselves to detach from their routines whichever they are, and to flow with life at a different pace.

Para mi fue algo complicado porque no entiendo muy bien inglés, pero realmente lo disfrute. Todos son muy amables y atentos. Tienen paciencia para los principiantes como yo, que nunca había practicado yoga. La meditación ni se diga, lo máximo te relajas realmente. Las caminatas también son muy buenas. Yo estuve enferma del estómago y me ayudaron con tés, algunas terapias alternativas y ejercicios. Fue muy bueno. La comida excelente, Un ambiente muy familiar.
