Back in beautiful Nepal once again, this time in the warm October sun and during Divali, the Festival of Lights.

After starting crisp mornings in the heated comfort of the yoga room, we gather for a nutritious breakfast full of homemade pastries and healthy delights.

From our enchanting abode we set out for days filled with beautiful hikes, bumpy car rides, insightful lectures, yoga in nature and wandering through colorful majestic sites.

Returning back in the evenings to the peace of Chandra Ban always feels like home - a special place with great warmth and attention to detail. On themat we stretch out our bodies once again and listen in on yogic lectures with a warm cup of tea in hand.

Its a cause for daily excitement back at the dinner hall. With the ring of a bell (and some giggles), we are presented with a wide variety of delicious cuisine and homemade desserts. Sitting together, we share life stories and laughter before heading back to the warmth of our beds, full and content.
