≈ About Devika ≈

Devika has been teaching yoga since 1995. She was trained in Nepal and India. Devika also has degrees in Hatha yoga therapy, health food management, Ayurvedic massage and Reiki. In 2000 she started her own yoga centre in Pokhara.

In 2003 Devika fell chronically ill although she kept up her daily asana practice. She consulted all kinds of medicine: western, ayurveda, Tibetan, chiropractors, etc… but none could cure her. It was only in 2008, due to the rising of kundalini in her body that she started to heal. During this experience she could observe the energies working inside her body. She started understanding how blockages are created and how they can be resolved with yogic postures and movements. Devika shares these unique techniques that come to her through revelations in her classes.

Every year, during off-season in Nepal, Devika goes abroad. She leads retreats and teaches workshops in the UK and Europe.



Devika also manages the Nepali Yoga Women Trust. A percentage of the fees is donated to this organization that helps marginalized women by teaching them holistic therapies, handicraft skills and self healing techniques.

  • The time in here was so inspirational and memorable. The program is held in small group. In my case, there were only 4 people including me. The atmosphere was very focused on yoga. You could really heal and focus on yourself. The studio is the middle of jungle where you could wake up in nature and feel them. If you want real connection to the nature and yoga, I highly recommend Himalayan Yogini! You won't regret.
  • Amazing place, heartfull people & great yoga. The centre is located in beautiful nature. So peaceful! Had such a good time here!
  • I loved this place! Me and my husband ended up there after a friend give us this suggestion. We first booked for only 2 nights but in the end stayed in the yoga-center for almost a week. It was truly an incredible first experience and since then we are completely hooked on yoga. We loved the way there was room for asana practice, meditation and philosophy class. And the food of lovely Pema is delicious. Shyam (the yoga teacher) btw helped me a lot when I had problems finding some medicine in the city, he drove me there on his scooter and didn't stop looking until I had exactly what I needed. We absolutely want to go back for another stay at Himalayan Yogini and want to thank Shyam and Pema for the priceless life experience that they gave us. Namaste!
  • The benefits of Devika's Yoga are strong and lasting. I have been attending yoga courses here for years, I highly recommend staying for a 7 days course or longer. The other teachers are all very good as well, and the food is delicious! for yoga teachers to elevate their own knowledge and practice or the yoga beginner to have a easy introduction, definitely check this place out.
