Journey into Spirituality

Spring 2019

A Unique 8-Day Yoga Retreat & Adventure with Raj Patra


The weaving of Hinduism and Buddhism in Nepal brings a spiritually powerful culture of yoga to everyday life.

Take a journey with HYFL and Raj Patra to witness ancient traditions and practices of yoga on this rare adventure through Kathmandu where you will touch the sky of spirituality, encounter sadhus, yogis and lamas, visit World Heritage Sites, and witness life inside the Vajrayana monasteries and simple villages which preserve this ancient way of life. Hike up Himalayan trails above the clouds to ancient caves, and sit on the same boulder where Buddha himself once sat. Discover why Nepal is a constant source of inspiration for curious globetrotters and yogis, and stay at serene resort of Hotel Vajra, with organic garden and farm-to-table food.


Your Guide: Raj Patra

Born in Kolkata, India in a spiritual family, Raj was soaked in Hinduism and yoga traditions at a very young age. Practiced in Swami Yogananda lineage, his current teacher is the father of Universal Yoga lineage, Dorje Andre Lappa, a Vajrayana Buddhist. Raj has traveled to Nepal many times.

“My goal is to educate others on the essence of yoga traditions. On this adventure you will touch the sky of spirituality and the heart of adventure. You’ll visit known and hidden holy sites, witness peaceful ancient culture, and meet yogis — this trip will remain unforgettable.”
