In 1998, after a 10 year yogic and spiritual journey, Asanga decided to begin his own school of Hatha Yoga and Meditation. Asanga felt great spiritual energy resounding from a beautiful hill just outside of Pokhara lakeside, which was chosen as an ideal location for the school.
Surrounded by gorgeous mountains and overlooking the second largest lake in Nepal (Fewa Lake), the school is hidden among the trees. Birds wake you up in the morning, not the traffic. Eagles lift your head during the afternoon and you always breathe fresh air. The sun shines from early morning to late afternoon over the wonderful views, which are just in front of you. Sadhana Yoga offers a welcoming family environment with fantastic home cooked food, hot or cold shower, endless cups of Sadhana’s delicious herbal tea and laughter all the while. Sadhana Yoga welcomes all feel purified, stretched, relaxed and take the time to realize...
