Leading Australian Yoga Teacher Judy Krupp Returns to Bhutan for Six-Night Retreat

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Thursday, 26 March 2009

Uma Paro in Bhutan continues to secure its reputation as one of the most unique Yoga locations in the world. With dedicated Yoga facilities, in addition to a full-service holistic spa and healthy, sophisticated cuisine it is an experience not to be missed.

From 12th to 18th July 2009, Uma Paro will be welcoming Judy Krupp, a well known Sydney-based teacher whose likeable humour and nurturing style has inspired and made devotees of many, from beginners to the experienced. This will be the third time she has worked at Uma Paro, drawn by the mountains and fresh air, to lead what is likely be another sell-out COMO Shambhala Yoga Retreat.

Judy has over 20 years experience as a teacher and is founder of The Yoga Room based on Sydneys North Shore. Her teaching reflects her original training in the Iyengar system and work as a myotherapy body therapist to help strengthen habit-prone bodies and increase flexibility. This is excellent for people who are new to Yoga.

In addition, Judy helps focus the mind for meditation. She does this both through her artful teaching, and also by asking each guest to make the most of the privileged environment which is Uma Paro. Bhutan offers a memorable opportunity to escape the daily grind, high up in the mountains where few ever tread.

All Retreat guests are therefore invited to explore the countryside and culture more deeply, with an English-speaking Uma Paro guide provided for this purpose. The program includes walks through local scenery, to monasteries and valleys. There will be a visit to Bhutan's oldest temple from the 8th century Kyichu Lhakhang, a pilgrimage to Bhutan's most sacred site known as Taktsang monastery (Tiger's Nest), a lunch at a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse and a picnic at a ruined fortress at the end of Paro Valley with clear-day views of Bhutans highest mountain, Mt Jomolhari (7,314 m).

Throughout their stay guests are free to enjoy Uma Paros menus of healthy, locally sourced cuisine. Retreat guests can also make the most of Uma Paros holistic COMO Shambhala Retreat where they can experience a Traditional Hot Stone Bath followed by a COMO Shambhala massage. Others will enjoy making the most of Uma Paros extensive Ayurvedic treatments.

Prices start at US$4,092++, which includes 21 hours of Yoga and meditation instruction between 12 and 18 July 2009, accommodation, return airport transfers, four cultural excursions, a Hot Stone Bath and massage (90 minutes), daily breakfast, lunch and two dinners (beverages not included).

Uma Paro can provide extensive travel assistance, including advice on visas and Drukair flights into Bhutan.
