India: A Spiritual Pilgrimage

OCTOBER 26 - NOVEMBER 4, 2019

Join me for a special yoga pilgrimage and cultural immersion in Mother India. During this spiritual journey, we will immerse ourselves in the sacred culture of India and spend time diving deeply into yoga asana, meditation, kundalini kriyas and chanting on a daily basis. Traveling through Northern India together, we will visit local temples and offer up our prayers along the holy river. Come, create an adventure together and allow your soul to shine.

Your Unique Skills are Required for our 
Seva Work with Orphanages 

This trip is motivated to give you a beautiful experience of Sadhana, to have a daily practice of meditation, asana, breath work and kriya, yet get to know traditional puja, temple offerings and being immersed in all this spiritual culture and yogic practice has to offer: imbedded in this is the offer of your specific skills to service in the orphanages in Rishikesh and Varanasi. We need people on the trip who are able to offer not just yoga practice but also cooking, drama, art, talking therapy, dance, financial planning skills, reading and maths.

Do you have an additional skill you would like to offer the children? Let us know. It is an opportunity to receive and give back simultaneously. Do you have a college-aged child you could bring along with you who would love to work with the kids? On the trip we have an 11-year old (who will help cook and read to the little ones), a 21-year old (who can do drama and maths) and need more young people to come with you, or just you and your unique skills to offer.  This yatra is so much more than hanging out near the pool (taking Instagram pics!). You will be required, both in your practice and in your life skills, to show up for real, for real people who need what you have to offer... 

We’d love you to be with us on this life changing inner and outer journey.
