THE STORY BEHIND THIS RETREAT


Yasemin did her 500 hours teacher training 2019 in Nepal. In one of her last weeks, on her free day, she went with her fellow students to Pokhara to rest in the city and enjoy the free time. She ended up having dinner at a restaurant at which 2 beautiful humans started to chant on the harmonium and guitar. Yasemin’s soul was excited like never before, she enjoyed it so much and captured that moment on her camera. In July 2022 Yasemin decides to publish this video on her Instagram, which you can see here. Inspiringly the Algorithm pushed this video in front of Raghav, the founder of Yogconnection and Raghav recognized himself on this video and wrote Yasemin a nice message. Both quickly realised they had many interests in common: asana, breathing, chanting, playing the harmonium, electronic music djing and so much more. Raghav then invites Yasemin to this beautiful co-creational retreat with traditional teachers and Yasemin’s turkish influence, to Nepal.

TOGETHER WE ARE INVITING YOU TO JOIN

YOGCONNECTION

“a connection to live, to love, to learn and to grow together”


YOGCONNECTION IN POKHARA
YogConnection is located in Pokhara at Phewa Lake in Central Nepal. 

Raghav:
When I started travelling, Yoga got my attention really quickly. I decided to do my Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India and got more and more into the topic. Yoga is not only about the practice of Asanas but Pranayama, Meditation and Mantra chanting are also part of it. With my increasing experience I felt ready to have my own Yoga studio and also offered my own Retreats in India. Time passed by and I continued my journey to Nepal. At the beautiful Phewa lake in Pokhara, I found another magical place to live. I wish you could experience the beauty of this place in combination with our rejuvenating Retreat which allows you to shine again.”
Another project of mine is the Yoga Studio on top of the Jungle Front Lodge. I want to spread the message of Yoga worldwide and can’t wait to welcome you to our retreat here.

Few impressions of my time in Nepal 2019.

My Ashram was located 2 hours away from Pokhara, but I visited the city almost every 2nd Saturday (my free day). Afterwards I stayed for 2 weeks in Pokhara and solo hiked the Himalayas. It was a transformative journey, I am happy I can invite you to this magic. Defntl. plan your Himalayan trip after our Retreat. Some local guides are also able to help you to coordinate.
