"500hrs YTT training to deepened my knowledge"
Prakash has wealth of knowledge cater to beginners to advance level. Modified accordingly for those with injuries, making learning enjoyable. They have teachers who cover the respective topics in their expertise. Yogi Raj Pranayama & Meditation classes were relatable. Ram is super flexible and wow us in his classes, enjoyed all his sessions. Our Anatomy class held by Dr. Vikalpa made sure we had the right alignment on the different poses we learn. Dr Vikalpa took us hiking one of the days to explore the beauty of Kathmandu. Guest yoga teacher Manoj took some classes with a fun twist. We celebrated Holi at the home and Manoj took us out, what an experience it was.
Swetha made sure we all were keeping well come rain or shine. Made sure we were eating ok, sleeping well and adapting the environment. Always greeting us with her sweet smile. Shanti and Tirtha were always there to respond to our queries almost immediate. The day I arrived, the shower was not warm and I informed Shanti and Tirtha came and fix the shower immediately and I managed to enjoy my warm showers.
We had lovely meals prepared by the staff. Such sweet bunch. Tried their very best to make our meals yummy and also take in special requests just to make our worrying days go away during this trying time (covid19) with comfort vegetarian Momos, Samosas & daily vegetarian Nepalese cuisines. Not everybody is able to palate too much spices you may like to bring your own snacks, protein shakes.

"A spiritual journey with generous knowledge taught"
I found all the yoga instructors are very intuitive in the selection of sequence and teaching. I was not pushed hard. It was articulated in such a way I can work my self to improve my practice.. that was how clever Prakash and Ram Hari is.. as to be practical the original yoga course is 300 weeks. One can’t expect 300 weeks training perfection in 200 hr or 500 hr especially when this course is open to beginners intermediate and advanced level participants. But you can expect all the best of guidance they can offer.
As yoga is not just about physical asanas. It is the awakening of one self to find one self to be a teacher within. Yogiraj ji plays also an important part in his pranayama and meditation classes to help to awaken oneself within. Dr. Vikalpa is an intelligent Ayurvedic doctor who is the teacher for Yoga anotomy he plays a strong role in alignment and application our anotomy in practicing yoga. As whole this place is conducive comfortable homely feeling and we are treated like family. Prakash ji family Shwetha ji Vinnitha ji Shanthi ji Theertha ji are all amazing with their hospitality! And not to forget they also offer rejuvenating activities, reiki healing and training, singing bowl training, detox programs. Manoj is very lively, who give his best in reiki healing and training, he is also a talented yoga teacher. As happy go lucky he looks he has a lot to offer as well in asanas, creative sequences,and healing. The philosophy class is important as my breath !

"Life changing experience"
It was an absolutely amazing experience and I learned so much. It really does feel like a home after 3 weeks and the owners and the staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable in every way. The food was delicious as well and the classes were great. I learned so much and I would not change a thing about my stay.

"I found my inner peace again"
I absolutely loved this place. Was there for 8 days, and had such a good time.
The family is so welcoming and warm. They will help you with whatever you need. They have so much experience in yoga and meditation, so you are bound to learn.
The dining table makes sure that you get really close to the other participants. Its hard not to fall in love with the place.
Good vegan food also. I have never eaten vegan, but now i have a lot of ideas to take back home.
from Germany, January 2020
The stay at the Yoga home was very impressive. The teachers are very good, the staff is really very friendly and the food is overwhelming. The house is run with love and care for the participants. You can really feel born there. I can absolutely recommend the 200 hour yoga course. It will introduce you to the deep spheres of yoga. The newly gained insights will have a long lasting effect and have positively influenced my life.
Thanks for all

"Beginning of a new journey to become a better version of me"
Loved my training course, learned so much and realised so much more to learn as yoga is life style. I may or may not teach, but in any case the training I received will benefit my well being for rest of my life.
Yogi home family are all so lovely and helpful. Do not expect perfection or to become a yogi at the end, but expect that you will improve and become better version of yourself, perhaps more accepting, compassionate, less judgmental.. and as bonus you will meet lovely people from all around the world.. a message that we are all same ♥️🙏

"Fantastic learning experience surrounded by great teachers"
The teachers at Nepal Yoga Home have a lot of knowledge and share it with the student in good way. They are positive, open and patient. Rooms are nice and it’s very clean. The food is served thee times a day. It is very local and typical Nepali food. In all I went from knowing a little to a lot about yoga and developed myself as a yoga practioner, yoga teacher and person. Prakash (one of the owners) is a very loving person, and I felt very safe and welcomed at Nepal yoga home. I would recommend anyone who want to have intense training program for their 500 hours yoga teacher training program.

"Short sweet and excellent"
It was my lovely stay at Nepal Yoga Home. Everuthing was excellent. They have nice setting up of classes, teacher's are well qualified and you can take their personal time if you have confused on anything, they provide you tastey food 3 times a day and they put tea on ground floor(dinning) and you can take anytime how much you like. Location wise its perfect in very natural place. In overall, It was nice time with nice yoga people and yogi family.
from Australia, October 2019
I just loved the whole experience. The teachers and hosts were such lovely, warm, welcoming people and I loved that it was family-run. Prakash was a great teacher - so interesting and knowledgeable but also so funny, such a character! Lots of giggles. The other teachers were all cute and sweet in their own ways. Ram Hari was very patient and sweet with us (his flexibility was pretty fun to watch, although many of us could not attempt some of the crazy stuff), Manosh's classes were great, always offered variety and fun, and Yogi Raj's meditation classes were wise and thoughtful and educative. Shanti, Sweta & Tirtha were all so sweet and made sure were satisfied and comfortable, always checking we had everything we needed. The kitchen staff kept our bellies full with their delicious food (I have missed their momos and dal bhat so much I've been hunting them down back in Sydney!). And the housekeeping staff kept our rooms feeling clean and cared for.
I was lucky too, to be in a small group ( I think because was just at the end of monsoon season), and they just happened to be such an awesome, diverse bunch that I really connected with. It was lovely to hang with them!
I really enjoyed the philosophy, as I've been practicing the physical side for many years, I was excited to delve deeper into this.
Overall it was wonderful! Great place if you're looking for a pretty chilled, fun experience with lovely people to do your teacher training.

"Great experience exploring Yoga and Nepal"
I had such a lovely and unforgettable month in the Nepal Yoga Home.
From day one the friendly environment made me feel at home and everyone was incredibly kind and caring, like a family!
The food was really good and as a vegan, I had plenty of options.
The training itself was very interesting covering a wide range of topics.
All the teacher were extremely knowledgeable, and the part I enjoyed the most was learning about the philosophy of yoga, something that many other teacher training courses do not touch in such depth!
I would recommend this training to everyone who's interested in deepening their yoga practice while still exploring a new culture and country!
from Luxembourg, September 2019
"First yoga teacher training course and first time in Nepal"
The content was more than expected. From great philosophy lectures to asana practice of every level was provided and even a peak in nepali culture history.
500YTTC: 1hr a day supplementary with a higher level of asanas.
The kitchen provided us a great variation of nepali food everyday and it was really delicious.
Everyone was really nice and if you have a request they will make their best to help you.

"Best Decision Ever. Everything Exceeded Expectations."
Everyone made sure I felt at home. The place was cleaned daily, and fresh food was prepared for every meal. They fed us soooo much and even cried a little when we said goodbye! They welcomed us into their home, gave us an authentic education, and made us feel like family. I will definitely visit them again when I go back to Nepal! The education on Yoga didn't feel biased, and they did a great job explaining the different parts of it. We explored many different branches of asanas, pranayama and meditation techniques. It was a truly magnificent 3 weeks that I'll never forget. Thankyou,

I really enjoyed the people and hospitality at this yoga teacher training. The philosophy and meditation courses were amazing. I feel like I gained valuable information about yoga that I could not get in a western country.

"Life Changing 500 Hour YTT"
I completed the 500-hour yoga teacher training programme at Nepal Yoga Home and my experience was everything I was hoping for and more. I was welcomed as family on my arrival and on leaving, really feel like I have left family behind in Nepal. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, food is all home-cooked and delicious and the views/facilities amazing. The tutors at Nepal Yoga Home are extremely knowledgable and helpful. I learned so much during the course about the practise of yoga and about myself. I highly recommend visiting this beautiful place. I will definitely return there.
from Netherlands, January 2019
"Amazing experience "
The Nepal yoga home is a place where everyone is treated like family. The staff is absolutely lovely and hard working, and they made me feel so safe and comfortable. The food is absolutely delicious and varies. It is vegetarian or vegan and meals were a highlight every day. We never lacked for anything and i can truly say that i haven't eaten that much (healthy food) in a while!
The location is great too, with a view over the city and just behind a national park where one can hike. It is about 25min by bus to the city. (The rooms are vey cozy and warm.) It is quite intense for complete beginners and in general a challenge but it was also really fulfilling, i met great people and enjoyed every moment. I did the 500hr training but would have liked to stay longer. There is so much to learn and one has to be prepared to continue after the course is done. I recommend it to anyone who knows and loves yoga, wants to experience this lifestyle or simply learn about life and oneself.
Thank you to everyone who made this so special to me; the teachers, the family, the staff and my fellow students and friends.

My visit to Nepal Yoga Home was short but was wonderful. I was there as per my friend's recommendation and found myself really a cool place. Yoga Class was outstanding and was conducted by very experienced teacher, food was super tasty, their newly built accommodation is no less than nice hotel wooden parketing, Air conditioner, Hot water everything was there.

"Far exceeded my expectations!"
This place is amazing. Prakash and his team are so friendly and warm. You really feel like you’re at home. They look after you so well. The teachers are amazing and all have a unique and fun personality. The place is super clean and the food is wonderful. The staff are always open to feedback and act on it immediately and the atmosphere is so warm and wonderful. The location is great too. Close to the forest yet close enough to the city to hop in a cab and head in on your day off. This place far exceeded my expectations in every way.

"My 21 dayss transformation "
Everything was excellent, from the moment I arrived until I have left. I was received in the home and treated just like family, any request or concern was answered in a timely manner. I had few issues where I had to change the food a bit and it was done without any hesitation.
The training itself its hardcore, what i missed I would say it a bit more time to process all the new information and for the body to take adequate rest, however the pace was good and by the end of the course I realized how much stronger I became, how much I had improved and the peace I acquired.

"Transformational experience in a home away from home "
The experience of the yoga training was excellent, but only half of what made this 500-hours so impactful. The entire Acharya family invites you into their home as members of their family. Prakash is an amazing yoga guru with extensive personal experience that he willingly and humbly shares with you every step of the way. His passion for a blissful life and his sense of humor help to demystify the profound spiritual transformation he offers, and makes it feel so accessible, right within your grasp any moment you choose to become it. His brother, sister, wife and young beautiful daughter are all inolved in the business and with making the guests feel right at home. Our meals were always delicious with more than enough to go around, and they loved to take feedback on what we liked most and give us our favorite foods. We happened to be there during Nepal’s biggest festival, Dashain, and they celebrated the holiday with all of us with a traditional tika ceremony. You will truly get an authentic Nepal experience in the most beautiful way possible at Nepal Yoga Home.
There were 3 other fantastic instructors we learned under each day. Each brought a different style and experience. I have a special place in my heart for Dipendra, a world class Ashtangi who pushes your limits physically and mentally. I progressed under him like I never thought possible. He breathes and believes what he teaches down to his core and you feel it every moment you are in his presence.
from United States, October 2018
The best part of my stay at Nepal Yoga Home was that everyone felt like family. The family who operates the yoga home welcomed us with open arms and catered to our every need. I always felt taken care of and that I belonged there.

"Best experience in Nepal"
This is a magical place run by Nepali family who put a lot of love and effort into running a nice yoga retreat and yoga teacher training in Nepal. All teachers are qualified to instruct and they include Hatha yoga, Ashtanga (vinyasa) yoga, effective pranayama & meditation techniques, Mantra chanting and yoga philosophy in the course. I am extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to study the way of beautiful living, the way of healthy living and way of positive living. It was better than I could have imagined. The food was incredible and healthy, the views were inspiring, room was simple but I felt very comfortable and quiet. Big thanks to Nepal Yoga Home for your wonderful hospitality during my stay.
I would recommend 100% to Nepal Yoga Home anyone who wants feel yoga retreat and yoga teacher training in Nepal. I would like to give a big thumbs up for Nepal Yoga Home

My experience in Nepal Yoga Home was super nice. Welcoming family, nice new building, knowledgeable teachers, tasty and healthy food, stunning view and plenty of natural space were major points.

"Ask yourself if you really need it. "
Prakash and his whole family did an amazing job. I appreciate their effort to bring peace to the world a lot. Moreover, I was very happy that it was Tirtha and not Prakash being responsible for the money transfer etc. as Prakash was our main teacher from morning until evening. Tirtha did not teach but was responsible for all administrative things. Beside classes the green landscape around Nepal Yoga Home gave a great opportunity to go for a walk and “to digest” all input from class. Finally it was great that, whereas totally surrounded by nature, one was not very far from the touristic centre of Kathmandu and could go easily by an hour walk or short local bus ride to Thamel etc.

"Life empowering experience, more than I could have hoped for"
I was truly inspired by the sincerity of the good people that own and operate this amazing training facility, I really feels more like a home. I came to Nepal to break some negative patterns in my life, and practice a higher level of discipline and structure in the hope to gain control over my mind and my life. I love Yoga, Yogic philosophy, and meditation and these fine people took all of that to a higher level than I could have hoped for. The knowledge of the Yogi’s path that these Gurus share is mind blowing and heart opening, and has definitely had a positive everlasting impact on my life. I would encourage anyone striving for positive growth to invest some time at The Nepal Yoga Home. Asanas, Pranayama, Meditation, and Yoga philosophy at the highest level I have experienced. I also loved the area NYH is situated, right on the side of the mountain, jungle vibes, beautiful view, fresh air, and great spots in walking distance. The kitchen staff was also fantastic, they took great care in preparing delicious traditional Nepali vegetarian food, and made sure we had our fill, all with warmth and genuine hospitality. I will send my friends here, and will return one day myself. Namaste 🙏

"Trip of a lifetime!"
Recently completed the advanced 500 hr yoga and meditation teacher training. Best decision I’ve ever made - I had the most transformational experience at Nepal Yoga Home. Prakash and his family make you feel at home and a part of their family. I will never forget this experience. I have left not only with so much knowledge, but also with the ability to be still, quiet, and at peace. What a truly priceless experience in this world. I highly recommend!

"A Beautiful, Comfortable learning environment"
This family opened their home to us as though we were their own. The family dynamic makes Nepal Yoga Home a very comfortable, warm spiritual environment to learn. Whether you are deepening your practice or starting afresh, you can ensure you will always be well taken care of. All of the teachers are very passionate about their practice and are very excited to help you progress in every way. If you are willing to work hard, have an open mind and the enthusiasm to learn more than you'd think is possible in one month, this is the place for you. I was very impressed and touched by how each student was attended to on an individual level and so grateful for this experience and to this beautiful family.

"Great for 200hr"
The food was great, Shweta and the ladies in the kitchen always tried to give lots of healthy varieties and if there was something you don't eat in your diet (i.e. Dairy, eggs etc) they would be sure to tailor your meals. There was always ENOUGH food as they served you your plate and later went around offering extra.
Accommodation was great, there are rooms in the main house as well as another building. Both were clean and the ladies switched the bedding and towels often. And heaters are in the room if needed.
Course... This ones a bit longer. Dipendra is an INCREDIBLE teacher. He always had more and more to give and you can tell he really lives and practices what he teaches. The guy is a never ending source of information and is very perceptive on the mood of the overall class and each individual. I learnt more from him than any other teacher.
I thought the 200 hr portion was great, we were always busy and learning but the last ten days of the course could've have been WAAAAY more effective.

In this retreat you learn a great deal about Asana's but more importantly you learn about yoga philosophy. Pranayama and meditation. I felt like I was part of the family as did my 19 year old daughter. The training was excellent and he adapted all aspects to the needs of each participant.
from Philippines, October 2017
The whole team was very professional, efficient and kind. Each and every person were trying their best to please you. These people will not only teach you asanas, they will make you look at your life from a different angle, make you understand its real value. I will definitely come back. Thank you for everything, dear Nepal Yoga Home. All the best for you in future.

"Een ervaring om nooit meer te vergeten!"
Als yogastudio-uitbater en yogateacher ging ik zonder verwachtingen naar Nepal, om de authenticiteit van yoga beter onder de knie te krijgen in de 500u opleiding. Er werd fantastisch lesgegeven door zeer ervaren lesgevers, zowel de vinyasa ashtanga, als Ilengar, als filosofie als meditatielessen waren geweldig. Je wordt ontvangen in Nepal Yoga Home met open armen, en je wordt behandeld zoals familie. Het eten is er heel lekker, de kamers zijn er heel comfortabel, iedereen altijd met een glimlach. Ik wou graag nog veel langer blijven, dus ben ik naar hun Hotel gegaan, Nepalaya Hotel in Thamel, waar dezelfde warme en hartelijke sfeer hangt dan in de yogaschool Nepal Yoga Home. Ik wil deze opleiding iedereen aanraden: of je nu nog niets van Yoga kent of reeds zeer ervaren (zoals ik: ik geef 8j yoga en heb 2j een yogastudio). Een absolute aanrader!

"A second home during one month"
I’ve been here in February for doing a 500 h YTT, and what I really found was not only that, but a second home for me, and a second family as well. For me, the experience has been amazing. The place is ran by whole’s Prakash( the owner and teacher as well) family, that is absolutely adorable, Sweta, Shanti, Thirtha...( his cute little daughter), and the other teachers they have there working, are incredible, Ramhari,Rajendra, Samyam and Manoj, I’ve learned a lot with them, they’re doing their work really good, not only teaching us, but sharing more things, like going outside for hiking and being our friends as well. I’ve felt there super comfortable, my bed was perfect, always clean during the whole month, the same as the towels and my bedroom/ bathroom, that was warm when it was cold outside thanks to the A/C, and in the mornings I had the sun rising just in front of my window.. so it was really nice everyday. I didn’t need anything more that what I had there, neither I was expecting it.
The food is vegetarian and it’s delicious every day, and you can repeat as many times as you want.. jajajjah! And if there is something that you specially wants, they prepare that for you with love.
I’ve been very lucky as well with the group I met there, I will miss them each and every day. They’re friends for life...

"One of the best experiences of my life "
I can say the YTT was a life changing experience. 3 weeks of yogic lifestyle have shown me the new path in my life. I have spent such an awesome time there. The family of Nepal Yoga Home is wonderful. From the first moment they treat you like a member of their family. I feel Nepal Yoga Home is my second home. Program of the training covered a lot of yoga streams; assanas, pranajama, meditation, relaxation, ajurveda and much more. Teachers there have a wide knowledge of different aspects of yoga. They are not just teachers. They are real yogis and live yogic life. Prakash (the owner) is such a wonderful person. He is wise, full of positive energy and supportive. I am so grateful for all my teachers sharing their knowledge with us. Thank you so much! Nepal Yoga Home is a perfect place to meditate and free your mind, find inner peace and happiness. The place is surrounded by nature. It is situated close to the jungle. There is a beautiful, relaxing view of the mountains and Kathmandu Valley. Rooms are simple but cozy and clean. The meals were delicious and healthy. They served a lot of fresh vegetables and fruits. Each meal was balanced, composed carefully, with love. Thanks Shweta:) Day by day I was getting more relaxed, happier and filled with even more positive energy. And it is still with me in my life.
