Lucky visitors to Bhutan-- closed to the outside world for centuries-- discover the Himalayan kingdom’s remote, unspoiled wilderness and mountaintop monasteries. Wedged between China and India, the isolated country has preserved its beautiful Mahayana Buddhist way of life, uninfluenced by the outside world. Talk about a blissed-out yoga destination! Amanresorts was the first foreign company allowed to open a series of luxury properties throughout the kingdom, and now this circuit of five luxe lodges is offering the ultimate escape with private yoga lessons with internationally renowned yoga teacher, Jonas Westring.
A certified yoga instructor for the past 30 years, Westring will be based at Amankora Paro Lodge for eight weeks this spring (March 14 through May 1, 2011) and will teach both one-on-one and private group yoga sessions at any of Amanresorts' five lodges in Bhutan (Paro, Thimpu, Punakha, Gangtey and Bumthang), upon guest request. Whether you’re just starting out or a more advanced practitioner, Westring can tailor classes to all skill levels.
Private 60-minute yoga sessions are priced from $130 per person (or $190 for two people) and 90-minute sessions from $160 per person (or $240 for two people). Suites at Amankora are priced from $1,400 per night, based on double occupancy. For more information, check out Amankora's website: www.amanresorts.com/amankora/home.aspx
