Swami Prakash - Spiritual Guru & Founder Himalayan Yoga Retreat

Swami Prakash - founder of Himalayan Yoga Retreat, founded this yoga retreat center based upon his knowledge & inspiration of almost 14 years of vigorous, first-hand and unique spiritual escapades in the high mountains / Himalayas of North India. The Himalayas gave him shelter for these years when he renounced his home and family at a tender age of 12 to follow the path of spirituality. Following the footsteps & practices of ancient yogis, he spent years alone, in a cave at 16,500 ft over 40 feet of snow, to do intense practices.

For several years, he walked barefoot through dense jungles, stayed in natural shelters, went without food or water for days on end, and overcame the fear of natural forces and wildlife. While traversing the Himalayas, he got initiated from many Himalayan masters and filters this rare knowledge into his individualized teaching, and therapeutic healing methods.

Himalayan Yoga Retreat (HYR) is an authentic guided retreat opportunity for the sincere seeker in the powerful Himalayan region by Swami Prakash. A hub for authentic spiritual practice, transformation teaching, and research into ancient techniques of self-exploration, HYR delivers 200 Hours and 500 Hours of Yoga Alliance certified teacher-training courses, retreats and nature treks, guided meditations, chanting, prayer and healing sessions.
