Accommodation

Shanti Yoga Ashram provides guests with an ashram environment in a home-stay setting, surrounded by the splendor of nature. Yogi Prakash and his family welcome guests into their kitchen and living space. This affords a cozy environment conducive to spiritual practice where those who stay at the ashram can get a taste of authentic yogic lifestyle along with traditional Nepalese culture.

​The ashram provides a few private rooms and shared dorm room facilities. Availability is based on current occupancy. There is warm running water for bathing powered by solar and unlimited fresh drinking water. Electrical outages are a part of life in Nepal, however it is easy to adapt since there is solar energy for heating water and gas or fire for cooking. It has 24 hours of Wi-Fi and lights that are battery powdered, not dependent on the coming and going of electricity.

Program

Shiva Shakti meditation

Divine bliss is experienced when Shiva (consciousness) and Shakti (energy) unite to create pure consciousness. This union of masculine and feminine energies can be cultivated individually or with a partner. Sexual energy is the energy of creation, the most powerful energy available to you. As you gain skill in sensing and moving this force, you open up the possibility of awakening and manifesting your latent divinity by awakening the power of Kundalini.

Guruji will guide you how to rotate prana through subtle pathways in the body, transmuting sexual energy into spiritual energy. Due to the flow of oxygenated blood through the nervous system, a bioplasmic reaction is created, which causes every nerve in the body to vibrate at a higher frequency, activating dormant cells in the brain, leading to an expanded state of consciousness.

Yantra meditation

Yantra literally means instrument. It is a geometrical complex spiritual instrument in Tantra practice for concentration and meditation. When the mind is concentrated in Yantra, the mental chatter stops and eventually the object of help, the Yantra, is dropped, and the mind can remain empty and silent. The practice of Yantra meditation brings about bhukti and mukti, enjoyment and liberation.

You will go deeply into meditation on Shiva, Kali, and other Yantras to activate consciousness, will-force, and other dormant powers.

Instructors

Yogini Gopika
Since Yogini Gopika was a young girl she was in love with the deep beauty and peace found in nature. For her life was always full of magic and mystery. Upon getting her first real job after college, she can remember thinking with a feeling of longing for something greater that here must be more to life than this. Upon discovering yoga, everything transformed and she made a swift exit from mainstream society in search of life’s true meaning. After teaching yoga in New York City for about a year she journeyed to India.
