This coming Sat the 29th September marks our second visit to Sri AuroBindo Yoga Mandir Ashram; about 40 minutes driving from Kathmandu. This event I have called Body, Breath, Mind = Bliss as through our day of kriyas, pranayama and asana's we aim to reach that blissful state. At least the last time we visited several months ago, certainly we all left with big smiles on our faces, maybe that was due to such delicious food!
