“An inner journey at an exclusive destination”

Something that once started as a passion has become an integral part of my life.
Ever since my childhood I was very much attracted to Asia, Buddhism and Tibetan Buddhism in particular.

In 2010 I was fortunate enough to meet my teacher, Tulku Lobsang, and after that meeting things started to move very quickly. I dedicated the first couple of years to studying, practicing and to transforming my own emotions and patterns, something I will keep working on for the rest of my life.

After a while, I started to share my knowledge with others, training yoga teachers on behalf of Tulku Lobsang, and so on.

My greatest passion, however, is managing real change processes.

My last professional experience was all about coaching people, which I have now been doing for many years. Nowadays, I am combining my coaching skills with various physical and mental exercises that have their origins in a very ancient wisdom.

The idea to start taking people on a spot far away came to me when I was visiting France with a group of people. I helped them to travel to another world, a world in which they were able to focus on themselves and have the time and the space to fully relax.
This is all part of Tarayogini’s philosophy: “Go from the outside to the inside … connecting with yourself, and from this using connection with yourself to connect with everything.”

Meanwhile, many people living in my favourite part of the world, Tibet, Ladakh, Nepal and Bhutan have crossed my path.

But Nepal had always a weak spot in my heart.
I have lost my heart to Nepal many years ago.
In 2009 I was on a sabbatical and travelled to Asia, where I was doing volunteer work. It quickly became clear to me that Nepal was a country where I would be able to live permanently. Its people, its nature, its culture, … The volunteer work I was doing – I was working with children – and my time in Nepal had a large impact on my life.

After the earthquake in Nepal in 2015, I started a project called “a warm heart for Nepal”, helping to rebuild schools in remote area’s.

Ever since that first visit in 2009, I have been visiting the country every year. In the past two years, I have also been organising yoga and meditation journeys to Nepal.

A few years ago, I visited Mustang, a part of Nepal that is actually a little forbidden kingdom and that stole my heart with its wonderful nature and its authentic atmosphere.

It was there that I met my business partner and my life partner, Pramod Tamang.

Pramod  has his own travel agency Tarahimalayanvison, spiritual experience travels in Asia.

Together we want to organise even more trips to Nepal, offering a “spiritual experience” and visiting the most wonderful places.

Pramod has been a trekking guide in Nepal for many years and knows the country inside out. Whereas I have many years of experience teaching yoga, meditation, breathing exercises and Buddhist Psychology, and have been combining these classes with guided Yoga and meditationsessions abroad for the past few years.

Together, we make a unique team that can offer you an experience you will never forget in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Nepal.

The Tara Himalayan Vision logo features the beautiful Himalayas, the place where our hearts are and where Tibetan Buddhism has its roots.
