TESTIMONIAL 

When I was considering this Nepal trip I was very apprehensive. My usual idea of a holiday is a 5 star hotel but speaking with ROY put my worries to rest. The minute I clicked ‘Send’ on my booking, I couldn’t shake off that sense of excitement!

I didn’t know what to expect from the trip and it turned out to be such a life changing experience for me!

Everything was impeccably organised. From yoga practice in the beautiful outdoors, to browsing the bustling shops around the majestic Boudhanath Stupa, or exploring the sacred grounds of Pashupatinath Temple, every activity was an opportunity to learn more about the rich culture and spirituality that Nepal holds.

The yoga sessions were so thoughtfully lead! Vinyasa practices got us warmed up in the cool mornings while soothing evening classes made sure our post-hike legs wouldn’t feel sore the next day. My only complaint? After experiencing such personalized instruction, I’d never be able to go to one of those run-of-the-mill yoga studios!

I had the honor of meeting an amazing group of participants from around the world. We came together as individuals embarking on personal adventures but left as friends, having shared this portion of the journey together.
