About Shanti Yoga Ashram retreat
We provide a peaceful ashram setting where residents and guests can fully receive and practice yoga in its true form, while living a yogic lifestyle. Individually and collectively we do our best to give practical tools needed to advance on the yogic path. We offer a variety of yoga courses and retreats that give our students the possibility to gain knowledge and experience of yoga in all its depth. The aim of Shanti Yoga Ashram's teaching system is to combine physical movement (asana), breath (pranayama), and awareness (meditation) to generate physical, vital, and mental health.
Develop a good foundation to build a satisfying yoga practice. You will start with the basics, learning how to breathe properly to oxygenate the body and energize the mind while synchronizing movement and breathing for a meditative experience. You will also discuss yogic philosophy, the basics that every yogi should know that can be directly applied to your life and your practice. It is vital to integrate the two so that your spiritual development can fully blossom.
Shanti Yoga Ashram was born out of a cluster of bungalows on personal land in the village of Machchhegaun. In this small, informal environment reminiscent of the ancient yogic guru-disciple tradition, Yogi Prakash imparted the wisdom of Tantra Yoga to whoever crossed his path. In 2001, he officially registered the ashram with the government. During these early years, in spite of the small scale of the ashram, Yogi Prakash managed to guide 3,000 people, Nepalese and foreigners alike, over the course of ten years. He spent two years spreading his teachings in Thailand, China and Austria. He wrote his book, Tantra Yoga, while living in China as a resident teacher. Despite these successes something was still missing. He felt that teaching yoga was incomplete – he had to bring the practice into the broader scope of social well-being, to take all that he learned and generated from his personal sadhana and offer it to the welfare of society. So he turned his attention towards bringing Tantra Yoga into the educational arena. The first manifestation of this goal took shape in the form of a yoga school for children. In 2001, his family housed and educated children in need, despite their lack of resources. Unfortunately, due to lack of funding this project was short-lived but would leave the seed for a second attempt.
