Overlooking the valley from the foothills of the Himalayas this centre is an oasis of peace just a taxi ride from the airport. Accommodation is only a few years old and well appointed with ensuite bathrooms. The daily program is tailored to your current state of health and includes physical asana as well as meditation and breathing (pranayama). Massage and... More

I haven't been able to contact my friends in SBHFLR. Can anyone tell me if they survived the April 2015 earthquake? The location is close to the epicentre with destruction in surrounding villages. Love these people so hope someone knows if they are Ok.

What a place to find tucked up in the hills of the Himalayas! This was the perfect start to my trip to Nepal, a full range of authentic yogic experiences and practices was offered in the most peaceful and natural surroundings. The staff are all living their practice and sooooo friendly and wonderfully cheerful. I only wish I could have... More

About Yoga The class I normally taking at home, the teacher explains how the posture works in each part of my body. Here at the centre, yoga lesson was different.  We followed the postures which the teacher showed without not much words. I realized that the way of teaching without too much words could focus on my body and mind... More

I couldn't agree more with the previous disappointed visitor to SBHFLR. I travelled alone to this retreat expecting "life research" and found there was nothing of the sort going on. It is indeed true that you feel as if you are intruding on them and they are grudgingly fitting in 2 boring yoga classes a day. The yoga teacher Amrit... More

First of all, this place is nothing like the place they promise on their website. I don’t even know where to start! First of all, this is not a “Life Research Center”. There is absolutely no Life Research going on there. YOGA: It’s also not a real yoga retreat, as you do yoga only twice a day for one hour... More

A relaxed environment. Great yoga tuition, amazing food, meditation and wonderful hospitality. I would recommend to anyone heading to Kathmandu. Great views across the valley. Close to the city but in a peaceful hillside setting literally where the road runs out
