Atmashree Yoga Retreat, Pokhara, Nepal

Spoiler : there are no pictures for this post. You’ll just have to believe that Trey’s headstand was legendary and my plough pose: simply sublime.

6am – Meditation (chanting, ringing bowls, silent walk, pre yoga nap)

7am – Shatkarmas: Morning cleansing of body (nose, stomach and chest all with salt water- google it – the nose cleanse is amazing)

7.15 – Herbal tea (drinking it and not sticking up our nose)

7.45am – Yoga (Hatha, Vinayasa, Ashtanga) – 90 mins, mellow class – lots of focus on breathing techniques and stretching.

9am – Breakfast (Vegan or Vegetarian options / no bacon sandwiches or full English here)

10am – Rest

12pm – Meditation: Yoga Nidra, Singing Bowl Meditation (also known as pre-lunch nap time)

1pm – Lunch – DhalBaat, rice and curry

2pm – Free time

4.30pm – Herbal Tea

5pm – Yoga – As above yoga but tougher and more dynamic. Longer more intimidating poses. #speedsalutations

7pm – Dinner – Delicious Nepali food

8pm – Meditation (Chanting, Intense Meditation / Japa Yoga)

9pm – Retire for the evening – actual sleep.

      Thanks. The teaching didn’t happen because of the festival so we kept ourselves busy with trekking and yoga. Off to Japan on Monday!
