"Let life surprise you "

I really liked the schedule, the workshops and the food.

Another aspect would be the context set up, like each of us has its own limits and we should be aware when practicing, instead of comparing each other.

Ultimatelly, I think that what you see depends on what you are looking for, so the experience here will be the way your mind would prefer to see it. If you want to complain, you'll find the excuses to do so; if you want to see the beauty in every situation, you will be able to do so. Either teaching, food or accomodation - it's up to you how you'd prefer to see it. My suggestion is to embrace the experience and make the most out of it. Let it (positively) surprise you! :)

"Review of Nepal Yoga Academy"

The program was clear and we kept to it. I would suggest more class excursions for instance on Saturdays.

"Nepal Yoga Academy, Bliss and Love, Namaste"

Everything. The hours for the training make sense. The food is fantastic. The accommodations are clean. The staff are kind. The grounds are beautiful. The learning is amazing. The tea is plentiful. And, it's in the birthplace of yoga.

"Classical yoga, classical teaching style"

Nepal Yoga Academy has two nearby locations and during my course there were over 20 students who took all philosophy classes together though we had separate asana and pranayama classes which each had around 10 people, plus any of the retreat guests who were there (those who arrived at the beginning of our training had easy classes and retreat guests staying toward the end attended our more difficult classes, which was great for some and frustrating for others. It seemed to be random which of the locations we stayed, I felt lucky to be in the one that feels more in nature that is actually pictured online. The accommodation in both are still lovely and the days schedule filled but with appropriate amounts of business and rest. The support staff are kind and helpful. Dr. Chintimani is exceptionally knowledgable about parts of yoga philosophy and gave a good foundation for many of us who only knew about the asana part of practice. Because of and in spite of many areas of improvement, they offer an opportunity to practice mindfulness, patience, and personal growth. It can be a very spiritual experience if you allow it to be.

"Amazing and intense experience"

The yoga teacher training is one of the most intense things I have ever done, I think. My body feels stronger and more flexible than ever and I feel ready to start teaching yoga. The people I met there where amazing. I expected the food to be only rice and vegetables, but it was nothing like that. The food was amazing!

Dr. Chintamani knows so much and it is wonderfull to listen to him, he is a very good teacher.

Yoga Nepal Academy bietet einen wundervoll familiären Rahmen für tiefgehende Erfahrungen mit Yoga, sich selbst und der sozialen Gruppe.

Eintauchen und genießen!

Ich wünsche allen viel Spaß dabei!

"I stayed for the certificate and the people "

Small group (8 people, usually it's around 20), so the teachers could walk around and help and we had a pretty close relationship to the volunteer teachers Sara and Warren.

We had some really amazing yoga classes. Particularly likedhow Dr. Chintamani sequenced the classes and Sara's holding and feeling the poses.

The white house is like a small parallel world, with a beautiful garden, clean rooms, sauna and nice dining hall. We had almost all day sun and a beautiful valley view. The best milk tea and cookie supplier in Talkot was in only 10min walking distance.

The breakfast was lovely.

"Gens extraordinaires, cours très moyen "

Les gens rencontrés ont fait de mon expérience un mois unique et fort en émotion. La nourriture est bonne bien que très redondante.

Reina Hoctin Boes

from Melbourne,

The yoga teacher training with Guru Jee at the Nepal Yoga Acadamy & Retreat has left me with a special memory. One of the girls as part of her graduation had to lead a guided meditation. She made us walk the paths we walked daily, enjoy the views, we admired daily, reflect upon our state of awareness we found ourselves in and she asked us, finishing her guided meditation: dear yogi's and yogini's, please guide yourself through this meditation when back at home, when you feel the need. The Nepal Yoga Academy & Retreat managed to make me think back at the experience and re-connect.

from Australia,

Our retreat was an absolute mind blowing success. DR Chintamani is an expert in his field and we were welcomed, cared for and have come away with a wealth of knowledge that I was searching for but did not believe was possible!

Randi Johnbeck

from Australia,

I was very happy with my stay at Nepal Yoga Academy. Very good teachers, good food and good vibes. The yoga training was very thorough but sometimes it felt a bit uncoordinated. Overall, I would definitely recommend people to go there for YTT.
