Purna Yoga Retreat Centre is located on a hillside in the quiet and peaceful area of Sedi Bagar, just outside of the hustle and bustle of Lakeside, close enough for convenience but far enough to make for a tranquil spot away from the crowds and city noise.
Our area is very secluded and serene, to the front we have wonderful panoramic views over Fewa lake, Peace Pagoda, nearby hills and terraced fields. To the left we have a clear view of Sarankot hill and many paragliders taking off from the top and dotting the sky above us. On the other side we are surrounded by forests which are home to monkeys and exotic birds.
It takes around 15min to walk down to the lake where you can enjoy boating.
There is a local dirt road leading up to our centre which means convenience as a car can drop you off right on our doorstep. However this road is rarely used by any vehicles meaning that we don't have to worry about traffic noise.
There is also a hiking path leading from our centre straight to the hill of Sarangkot – the highest point of Pokhara valley and the best local view point over the whole Annapurna mountain range. From our retreat centre it takes around 45min to walk to the top where you can admire spectacular mountain views as well as paragliders taking off.
A nearby hotel features an outdoor heated swimming pool which our guests can use at a small fee. From our centre it takes just a couple of minutes to get to the swimming pool, which is hidden away in lush vegetation on the lower part of the hill.
