!ncredible !ndia yoga and cultural retreat 16-27 Sep 2019
India can seem unapproachable and insurmountable. After a successful trip with 20 yogis in October 2017 to Southern India, I am happy to announce that this time we are going North. How would you like to go with a guide who speaks the language, knows the culture and can guide you through yoga and meditation every day? I will be there to pick you up at the airport, be with you every day during our travels and dropping you off at the airport when it is time to go home. Your safety and comfort is my utmost goal. So you can relax and take in the culture.
I am happy to report that not a single member got sick during our retreat last year. You probably heard that becoming ill when you visit India is unavoidable, jokingly called Delhi belly. But by meticulously paying attention to hygiene can keep you from contracting a case. And that is my job.
I have family and contacts in India which have helped me to plan this trip and yet keep the costs at a reasonable level. This combination will allow you to have a once in a lifetime experience traveling to a country like India and still interacting closely with the culture.
India has many amazing things to offer and I am delighted for the opportunity to share yoga, meditation and the wonders of my homeland with you. I will be happy to talk with you about any questions you may have about this adventure to the land of yoga. I will guide you through all the formalities required prior to travel, from visa to vaccinations and the cultural norms to be mindful of once we are there.
India is such a vast land with so much historical and cultural treasures to explore, that you can only do so much in one trip if you want to stop and savor this amazing land.
However, if you were to take only one trip in your lifetime, this is the one to take, as we cover four major historical and ancient cultural sites: the Imperial capital city with the Mughal architecture, the magnificent Taj Mahal, the religious capital of India – Varanasi, last but not least Bodhgaya – about 2,500 years ago, under a Bodhi tree Prince Sidhartha Gautama attained enlightenment and became the Buddha (the Awakened One). We will stay at 4-star hotels, such as Grand Imperial, Agra.
Possibly one stay at a temple/monastery in Delhi and one at a monastery in Bodhgaya. I am working on it. All inclusive cost: $3,650 per person, based on sharing a room with one other person. Price includes: All domestic transportation to include, flights, trains rides (one overnight ride in an A/C sleeper), road transportation in a 27-seater A/C coach (we cover 3 states Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar), all sightseeing and transfers, all meals (including bottled water, tea/coffee), entry to monuments, guide’s fees, portage and gratuities. Price does not include: International flight into and out of Delhi, alcoholic beverages, anything of personal nature – laundry and hygiene/health products.
