We are so excited to invite you to join us on a special spiritual journey to the colorful and fascinating world of India, the motherland of yoga and Hinduism. We will explore the highlights of northern India where we will practice, travel and experience its incredible culture, food, and spirit. Our journey will begin in the capital of Delhi, where the old meets the new. We will venture down its ancient bustling roads by cycle rickshaw and see the highlights of this city that continues to grow and modernize yet is still firmly rooted in the past. From Delhi, we will take the first class early morning train to Agra and visit the iconic Taj Mahal, a sight not to be missed in this lifetime. Its then on to Jaipur, the gateway to the culturally rich province of Rajasthan where we will visit the spectacular Amber Fort, enjoy a house concert in a traditional haveli, and for this interested there will be some incredible shopping opportunities as well! A flight will take us to Varanasi, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world and the jewel in the crown of any visit to India. This is the most important pilgrimage city in all of Hinduism and our days here will be spent on and around the Ganges by boat both at sunrise when we’ll be serenaded by classical Indian musicians and at sunset to witness the spectacular evening artis. We will also explore stunning silence of nearby Sarnath, where the Buddha found enlightenment. Daily vinyasa, restorative yoga, sound healing + reiki sessions will be laced throughout our days (time permitting). Join Yuval on a true trip of a lifetime to incredible India!
We will be staying at gorgeous 5-star hotels chosen for their location and quality of service throughout Northern India. We’ve used them all for groups in the past.
