New at Amankora in Bhutan: Yoga Lessons with Jonas Westring

Amankora, Bhutan

 

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.
