Pokhara Yoga Ashram - Testimonials

Tammy Andres

I was in search of a good Yoga School in Nepal to do my 200 hours yoga teacher training course by Yoga Alliance. Pokhara Yoga Ashram was a perfect stop shop. The place feels so much like home and it felt very comfortable staying here. The staff are very friendly and made me feel like I am home. Always checked on me and did their best to help with any issues I faced. The course is intense but also fun. I met so many amazing people that I will always be connected with having shared this beautiful experience

together is very special. The course was very well designed to suit for a beginner practitioner like me. We got detailed information about all the subjects and it was focused on Asanas and their overall impact on the physical, mental and spiritual self.

The room is basic but very clean and hygenic. Everyday we were served very good food.

The amount of knowledge I have gained in this place is huge and I will always carry it with me wherever I go.

Nicole Ross

I did my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course in Pokhara, Nepal from Pokhara Yoga Ashram. The overall experience was life-changing. It was a perfect combination of learning yoga along with having fun and enjoying the beautiful location with beautiful people around.
Pokhara is a beautiful location and this school is located close to Bewa lake which has an amazing view with a backdrop of Himalayan mountains. It is a peaceful place where practicing Yoga becomes smooth and easy. The rooms are very good and clean.

The support staff is always there to help you with any issues around the clock. The course content is very exhaustive and covers a wide range of topics right from meditation, philosophy, pranayama, asana, alignment and anatomy. It is very interesting to know how each of these practices is connected with the other. I was always curious to learn deep about them and I found a perfect place to gain the required knowledge.
Thank you Pokhara Yoga Ashram for this Life-changing Experience.

Olivia Haberson

Pokhara Yoga Ashram is one of the best Yoga schools in Nepal. The 200 hour Yoga TTC course that I did with them was a journey full of new learnings, intense asana classes, deep knowledge of breathing practices, an overview of living a yogic life and being fully aware of the body in this practice.

The location is beautiful and helps you calm and relax your mind. I am a fan of golden hour, so it was a treat for me every day to witness beautiful sunrise and sunset in such a raw nature.

I would highly recommend Pokhara Yoga Ashram as it offers everything that one seeks from the Yoga teacher training course.

Emily Anderson

Good Yoga courses in Nepal was a challenge to find, but I am glad I did my course from Pokhara Yoga Ashram, as it offered everything that I was looking for.

The accommodation was great. Very basic, but very clean. It is located in Pokhara which is one of the most beautiful places in Nepal. The Yoga shala is surrounded by Himalayan ranges, so one can have a great time admiring the view of the Himalayan peaks everyday during their free time.

The course is very intense, but I got to learn a lot from the very experienced and well-qualified teachers who were ready to help and answer all our questions with great patience.

The food served was vegetarian light food 3 times a day and every meal was tasty. The kitchen and reception staff were also very supportive and helped us with any issues.

Rose Dobson

Yoga TTC in Nepal was surprisingly very good. I did my 200 hour YTTC with Pokhara Yoga Ashram and had a great experience. We were taken on excursions, did some Yoga on the rooftop with the beautiful Himalayan range view, mantra chanting, Yin Yoga everything was just a beautiful funfilled experience.

The support staff at reception as well as in the dining area were very helpful and were available to resolve any issues I had with the rooms, food etc.

Food served was delicious but light on the stomach and highly nutritious. This helped us to be more energetic and active throughout the course

The teachers have a very good command of their respective subjects, as they have been teaching Yoga for years and it shows in the way they deliver the knowledge.

I would highly recommend Pokhara Yoga Ashram!
