HARI OM, my name is Thommas Michaud and come from Vancouver Island Canada. I have been at Ananda Yoga Nepal for 9 weeks, from the middle of May till the end of July 2012. One of my good friend Swami Maheshananda and it has been one of the great times of my life in India and Nepal.
My first visit to India was in 1974 and I spent 5 years untill 1981 practicing yoga, meditation and music. I have been teaching yoga, meditation, tai chi, and music for many years.
Here at Ananda Yoga Ashram, Nepal, I participated in the Yoga Teacher Training in the style of the Bihar Yoga and I received another certification of Yoga Teacher.
Ananda Yoga Nepal is the perfect place to practice and learn Yoga, Meditation, philosophy, Yoga Nidra, mantra chanting, kirtan and satsang. Shivgiri, is the head of the Ananda Yoga Nepal and he has great sense of humor and knows how to make everyone at ease in his ashram. He presently leads meditation, yoga nidra, mantra chanting, satsang and receives the many local people which are coming to visit and learn from him.
Ananda Yoga Nepal has several yoga teachers and staff, who are all very competent and friendly and good musicians too. They love sharing their knowledge with the residents of the ashram and also bring them to local interest sites and temples. Several children are also learning and love to participate at special events, mantra chanting and kirtans.
A very tasty and healthy Vegetarian food is served daily with several vegetables from Ananda Yoga Nepal’s garden, lentils, raw slice vegetable, teas and fruits. It is absolutely great.
One of the great course offers here at Ananda Yoga Nepal is the one-month long Yoga Teacher Training course which at completion gives the students a 200 hours Yoga Teacher Certificate in the style of the Bihar Yoga and recognized by the Nepalese government. If you are looking to learn yoga here is the place, but if you are already a yoga practitioner and would like to do deeper learning in order to teach this wonderful science of yoga in your country, here is where Ananda Yoga Nepal shines. You can learn and become acquainted with the many aspects of the science of yoga in a way where you can feel competent yourself to take the new level of practice.
To share the knowledge of yoga is to participate in the rising of the world consciousness enabling people to have a happy life. All the best in Nepal at Ananda Yoga Ashram.
