Tibetan Monastery, Pharping

For Tibetan Buddhists, the hills of Pharping where we immerse for our retreat is considered as sacred as Bodhgaya in India, as it is where is where the second buddha Guru Padmasambhava (“Guru Rinpoche”) attained the state of enlightenment, before going on to establish Buddhism in Tibet.

We will stay in the modern and comfortable guest house at the monastery, enjoying the calm of the surroundings and wonderful, plentiful, healthy food. The monastery which is our home during the retreat makes important contributions to the preservation and sharing of the Buddhist teachings, and our stay there helps to fund education for the many young monks from remote areas of Nepal. The lovely guest accommodation has spacious and bright rooms, comfortable beds for deep and refreshing sleeps, all with attached bathrooms, and built in Tibetan style. The stunning yoga hall overlooks the rice paddies of the Kathmandu Valley, ringed by the Himalayas, which the sun rises over during morning practice. It is the perfect place to relax, restore and revive. See more events in this venue

Doron Hanoch

Doron is a Certified 550 hour Yoga Teacher (ERYT) as well as the director of the Doron Yoga School (RYS 200 and 500). He was introduced to Yoga and Meditation in 1992 while traveling and studying in the Far East for 2 years. During that time, Doron has studied at the Osho Ashram, with the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, in Thailand doing Vipassana retreats, and in Japan living and working with a Buddhist priest.

Since then Doron has returned to India many times to deepen his spiritual and Asana Practice and has practiced under the guidance of Pattabhi Jois and his family. He is fortunate to have studied with some other great teachers such as Richard Freeman (teacher training, advanced trainings and assisting), Rolf and Marci, Tim Miller, Adarsh Williams, Sheshadri, Chidananda, as well as continuing studies and mentoring, with Mark Stephens. Recently, he became certified to teach Third Series Ashtanga under Tim Miller.

Doron is the also author of the upcoming book The Yoga Lifestyle – Using the Flexitarian method to ease stress, find balance and create a healthy life. The book will be launched in June.

Doron’s teachings are based on the foundation of tradition with a practical and non-dogmatic way. His classes are strong, but go at a pace that allows lots of awareness and focus. He teaches with extreme detail, shares a lot of informative tips both for body and mind, and keeps the class flowing with a fun energy infused with humor.

Doron is a trained chef, a certified nutrition consultant (registered with the AADP), an artist and a long time Zen student. He uses all his skills to share a holistic experience, with keen observation and compassion.
