The Sadhana Center is a family story, emerging from one yogi's dream. After a ten year spiritual journey in Nepal and India, Asanga, our founder, along with his wife, Durga, designed and established the first yoga retreat in Nepal's beautiful Pokhara.
Our values are based on peace, happiness and awareness. We put care into all that we do and deliver every element of Sadhana with passion and love. We offer a unique experience in yoga and meditation in the beautiful Pokhara hills. First of all, we want you to feel at home, feel relaxed and feel comfortable. We achieve this by allowing you to feel free in our natural open homely space.
At Sadhana, we detox body and mind by renewing your energy and your body at our retreat.
We are proud of our self-sufficient center - our ecological values supported by our recycling system, solar energy, organic garden and healthy Ayurvedic meals, always made freshly by us.
Please join us at Sadhana for a cultural, spiritual and relaxing journey in Nepal. We offer transformational yoga retreat packages suitable for all - whether you are seeking to detox, stretch, relax or revitalize during your time away. Walk-ins-are, of course, welcome. Please enquire or call us. for any details or read about our courses below.
