Nepal Yoga Retreat Itinerary

Days 1 to 4: Boudhanath

Landing in Nepal and jet-lag can be overwhelming. You will spend a few days finding your feet, adjusting to time change, and finding your groove as a group. While you recover from travel, you will spend some time walking around the famous Boudhanath Stupa, watching Tibetans chant, visiting a Hindi festival, and drinking chai.

Days 5 to 6: Pokhara

You will find your way to Pokhara, a lovely spot that will prepare you for trekking. Pokhara is known for its chill out vibe, one street to walk on, its serene lake, and multiple cafés and shops. You will get ready for seven days of walking and meet your support team here.

Days 7 to 13: Trekking part of the the Annapurna Range

Nepal has created a very convenient way to trek from village to village, using teahouses as a place to eat and rest. See how Nepalese live and survive in the mountains, bath in cool streams, walk up and down hills, and hopefully view the Annapurna Range at dusk and dawn.

Day 14: Pokhara

A shower never felt so good! You will pick up extra bags, eat a lovely meal, and sleep.

Days 15 to 16: Begnas Lake

Here, you will stay in a simple guesthouse and enjoy village life while taking advantage of the beautiful lake.

Days 17 to 18: Lumbini

The birthplace of the Buddha, the plains of Nepal and every Buddhist tradition are represented here. Lumbini is very close to the Indian border. You will experience diversity of land and culture in this quaint town. There will be allotted time here for silence.

Days 19 to 20: Kathmandu

It is finally time to experience Thamel, where you can shop, eat, play, and maybe even catch a local band. Beautiful Durbar squares are nearby to visit, as well as the famous Royal park. A farewell dinner will also be served before the day of your departure.

Instructors

Kat Boehm
Kat’s practice of both yoga and meditation deepened while exploring India, Nepal, Tibet, and Burma. Travel became a spiritual journey in which she discovered trust, passion, and devotion towards the teachings of the Buddha and yoga. Her appreciation of refined movement has opened her up to many modalities of practice, wanting the body to be as functional and healthy as possible. Kat’s journey of meditation, has taken her on many silent retreats. She sincerely believes that it is in simplicity and solitude where you connect deeply to compassion and wisdom.

Location

Nepal has a wide variety of culture, racial backgrounds, and languages within the relatively small country. Generally, it is said that Nepal has three main ethnic groups: Indo-Nepalse, Tibeto-Nepalese, and ingenious Nepalese. With this, one will see Hindus, Buddhists, and many different culture backgrounds within the mountains ranges.

The diversity of culture is what makes Nepal such a special country to visit, as you will experience and witness many different customs, dress, and geography while exploring the region. The Nepalese have a reputation for being extremely friendly, kind, and welcoming.

Food

The main diet for the average Nepali is Dhal Bhat, a plate of lentils, rice, and curried vegetables. It can be eaten twice a day and is a main trekking staple.

The influence from Tibetans has brought Momos, a dumpling filled with either meat or vegetables, as well as noodle soups. Most menus will be a combination of Indian curries served with rice or chapatis, Tibetan food, and western food, such as pizza, breakfasts, and fresh juices.

Chai is drank at anytime of the day and there are plenty of cold soft drinks available. Both Katmandu and Pokhara have excellent restaurants to explore and satisfy any craving that may arise.
