Yoga Meditation in Himalayas

Yoga is around 6000 years old. For millennia Yoga Masters treated their students and disciples like their own children and welcomed them in their homes. This was no mere book learning. Living together with the Master, the students learned to eat, breathe and live Yoga Meditation. But before the Master filled the cup of the seeker with knowledge and wisdom, he would help the seeker to "empty the cup" of old deep rooted habit patterns of thinking, finally leading the seeker to his own intuitive fountain.
