Program Fees Teaching Yoga

VIN aims to bring Yoga to Nepal.  Yoga could give the underprivileged people of Nepal a better life that comes from within, away from the challenges and changes taking place on the outside.  Inspired by the positive impact Project Air (www.projectair.org) has had on victims of war crimes and rape in Rwanda VIN believes that making Yoga available to the poor and marginalised communities of Nepal would be an invaluable gift to support positive change.Yoga is all about harmonizing the body with the mind and breath through the means of various breathing techniques, Yoga postures and meditation.

Nepal is a rich country in many ways, full of contrast and wealth.  However, it is struggling to find a modern identity in the midst of long-term poverty and continuing political struggle.  The weight of poverty and discriminatory cultural traditions weigh heavily upon the most vulnerable; women and children.

Despite Nepal’s proximity to India, Yoga is not wide-spread here.  Yoga is often perceived as a western luxury, far from its original form; bringing a state of awareness from where we can see our own divinity.  Yoga can help to manage stress, provide periods of rest and reflection, promote joint and muscle flexibility and provide a place from which people can find self-worth, leading to a positive daily attitude and physical health.

VIN seeks certified Yoga practitioners and intermediate to advanced students to join us from around the world.  Our Yoga volunteers will be assigned a VIN project area – Jitpur Phedi community, one of our partner Buddhist monasteries or an orphanage in the Kathmandu Valley – where safe, clean room space will be provided from which you can teach Yoga.

The volunteer will live local to their project, either with a host family or at the monastery or orphanage.  You will live among the Nepali people, having the opportunity to take part in their culture and immerse yourself in their way of life.
