    "One thing first: The family is extremely nice which makes it a little hard to write a bad review, but the Yoga is disappointing and the place really needs better maintenance. Prakash, the yogi, is keen on making you go explore the city so he can skip the classes. I booked a one week retreat with yoga everyday but he wanted Sunday off. When I insisted on having at least one or two of the 5 classes which were planned and paid for that day, he was really annoyed and rushed me through the lesson. Afternoon class was then one kind of sun salutation over and over again for 45 minutes. Some of the other teachers are good, but none of them corrects your poses or even pays attention that you do the asanas the right way. For Prakash it seems like he's annoyed by having to teach every day for several times. I guess it would be better to just offer fewer classes which are actually good quality and thought by a motivated teacher. As for the facilities: The place definitely needs more cleaning and maintenance. The shared bathroom is pretty dirty, especially the toilet. The rug in the yoga hall is loose and the mats are old and dirty as well. 50 USD a day is far too expensive for what you get. I left earlier and spent my last two days in a very nice hotel in Thamel dropping in at classes down there which cost me the same but was way better. "

    "Staying at the Nepal Yoga Home was truly a special and rewarding experience. Prakash and his lovely family went out of their way to make my trip easy and enjoyable, from beginning to end. Prakash was always quick to reply to my emails (even when I emailed him only a few hours before landing in Kathmandu to ask a last-minute question!), and just as eager to advise me on local sightseeing adventures and, of course, my yoga practice. I found the yoga traditional and invigorating; the daily schedule a perfect balance of exercise, mindfulness and downtime; the setting picturesque; my room perfectly comfortable; the food delicious; and, perhaps most importantly, the family welcoming and kind. I learned so much about living mindfully and peacefully during my week-long stay, and sincerely hope to return to my Nepali home in the future."

    "I spend 1 month doing the yoga teacher training programme in February 2016 with Prakash at the family run Nepal yoga home. As the name suggests this is neither a hotel nor a retreat. it is a home. And if you stay, you will not just be a guest in their home, no you will be a part of the family. The facilities are limited. Rooms are simple but clean. Electricity in nepal is scarced, so pack a flashlight and maybe a power bank for your phone. And some warm clothes for the cold evenings/mornings especially in the winter, since they cannot heat up the rooms. During my stay nepal was still under a blockade from India, so gas was very limited. But i learned to take cold showers and I enjoyed sitting in front of the fire as prakash's wife or sister was cooking. WiFi is fairly decent for Nepali standards. Food is delicious and cooked with a lot of love and care. Its simple vegetarian Nepali food, but so good. And sweta and shanti will happily show and explain how to cook it. If you are a bit picky with you food, they will also try to do their best to accommodate your requests. "

    "Classes are spread out through the day, starting at 7am. And takes place in the living room, the garden, the rooftop, the yogahall was being rebuild while i was there. 5-6 lessons a day, will still leave you with lots of free time and self practice time. I was quite lucky only having 2 others on the course, which allows a bit more flexibility. The type of yoga taught is quite traditional. Warming up joints thoroughly before going on to asanas. You will not break a sweat but you will feel your body ache from all the stretching. Asana class is taught twice daily, relaxation and meditation 1-2 classes daily, pranayama 1 class and 1 class on a theoretical aspect: ayuerveda, philosophy, physiology, history etc. Lot of focus on philosophical aspect of yoga and how to incorporate all parts into your daily life. You will feel like a yogi when you leave, a lot lighter and freeer. I can only recommend staying at the Nepal yoga home. The whole family goes above and beyond to make your time special. With sitting in the sun all together eating oranges, advise on life, travel everything, going to the Nepali cinema, cooking classes, lots of talks over dinner etc. It is a home of love and laughter. you will learn so much here and make friends for life."

    "It is a very nice place owned by a very friendly family. We stayed for 10 days practicing yoga, meditation and discussing life philosophy. We were treated as if we are the members of the family and everyone have been so helpful and supporting in during our stay. The yoga lessons are truly beneficial for body and soul, and the yoga teacher is indeed a yogi with great experience and has a very high skill level. The stay was worth every penny, and I am looking forward to come back again someday."

    "If you want to experience your inner being this is certainly the place. It is a spiritual and peaceful family in every way, and no pressure to do anything. They give great guidelines to health and inner peace, and tasty vegetarian food every day. It has been the most Inspiring 10 days of learning to live, love and let go. Try living in the present and discover more than you thought possible, you will never regret it, I can almost guarantee."

    "I had the privilege to spend some time at Nepal Yoga home during July 2014. The instructor, Prakesh is very skilled and knowledgeable in the field of yoga, meditation, prana and higher consciousness. Their setting is very positive and they have serene environment that allows you to get in tune with your inner divine spirituality. I would recommend this yoga home to anyone who is visiting Nepal and would like to enhance the quality of their life."

    "What a lovely place to learn more about meditation and re-connect with yoga. I had the pleasure of arriving on a day of celebration here in the valley and Prakash the yogi invited me to the neighborhoods for a celebration where I was welcomed as family. The few days I spent were far too short but I experienced deep meditation, teachings and blessings from the family that run Nepal Yoga home.I would recommend this tranquil home for all those who are seeking to deepen their understanding of their self and to find their own truth. I wish I had time to stay longer. Good hospitality and gentleness from the brothers and sister who welcome you in their home as your own."

    "I met Prakash when he came to teach a morning yoga class at the hotel I was staying in Kathmandu and I liked his style of teaching yoga. So I decided to stay for a couple of days at Nepal yoga home. I had a lovely stay. I enjoyed the asana, pranayama and meditation classes. It was nice to get out of the city and enjoy the fresh air. It is also great to be part of a Nepali family as his brother; sister and cousin live there too. I loved the decoration they have! It was very retro!"
