Mahalaya Nepal/Tibetan Buddhust Monastery
Amongst the energy of the Himalayas and by one of the most sacred sites in Tibetan Buddhism, join Petri and Wambui for a very special immersion into the Ashtanga Vinyasa practice.
The one-week retreat combines the powerful practice of Ashtanga Yoga in one of the world’s most unique settings, with technique discussions, pranayama, healing techniques and Yoga Therapy, chanting, optional morning meditation with the monks, Dharma philosophy, visits/hikes to some of the great pilgrimage points nearby, and plenty of time for quiet contemplation and joyful connection with like-minded others.
The retreat is an opportunity to adjust your pace and perspective, to slow down, to experience life more fully through mindfulness, and to feel supported in your practice by dedicated teachers, by the sacredness of the place and by teaching in the complementary philosophies of Yoga and Buddhist Dharma.
The retreat is aimed at those with an existing Ashtanga Vinyasa practice (newer practitioners are welcome, but the retreat isn’t suitable for absolute beginners). We expect to be a splendidly full community, so the practice space will be “Mysore-style”, both in terms of the practice and in the occupation of the space!
Each day will begin with optional meditation with the monks, under the calming and inspiring gaze of the temple’s 60-foot Buddha. Mysore-style self practice will bring us together each morning, followed by a varied schedule each day to share ideas, philosophies, techniques and places that add texture and depth to your practice and personal journey. We will also protect time for your own space to restore, connect and simply be.
