Exploration of Body, Mind & Spirit in India

India has a beautiful way of cracking your mind and heart wide open so that your spirit can soar! This trip will be an incredible chance to explore the highlights of of Northern India; the birthplace of yoga. As you venture through the cities of Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Varanasi, you'll witness the colors, sites, and sounds of these powerful places, while simultaneously nurturing your whole being, body, mind and spirit.
 
"Whenever I think of my time in India, I think of this quote from Keith Bellow, “There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won't go. For me, India is such a place. When I first visited, I was stunned by the richness of the land, by its lush beauty and exotic architecture, by its ability to overload the senses with the pure, concentrated intensity of its colors, smells, tastes, and sounds. It was as if all my life I had been seeing the world in black and white and, when brought face-to-face with India, experienced everything re-rendered in brilliant technicolor.”  - Ashley Rideaux

These are made on your behalf (space permitting) as soon as you place your deposit. These types of reservations include but are not limited to: multiple hotel bookings, train tickets, bus transportation, domestic flights (limited) and more. We will do everything we can to confirm all necessary reservations and permits however, we can not guarantee these arrangements without advanced booking.

Are airport transfers included in the price of my trip?

Yes, private airport transfers are included in the price of your trip. Whenever you arrive, day or night, you will be met by a private driver and transported to the group hotel. Note: if you arrive early and decide to stay at an alternate location other than our group hotel, you will be responsible for coordinating and paying for your own transportation directly with the hotel where you will be staying.

Do I need a visa for travel to India?

Yes! The India visa process can often be a confusing and lengthy process, which is why we strongly suggest using a visa-processing service such as Travel Visa Pro, which can assist you in getting your visa in a fraction of the time for a nominal fee. If you prefer to do it on your own, you have a few options, listed in the travel planner which we will provide you when you register.

What vaccinations do I need?

To see the complete list of what is recommended, please visit the CDC Website and consult with your primary care physician to make a decision on what is best for you.  

What if I am traveling alone?

We get hundreds of travelers each year who go on retreat alone. If you are traveling without a friend or partner, but prefer to share your room, we will do our best to match you with another traveler of the same gender. If for some reason, we are not able to match you with a roommate, a single supplement will apply.

 

If you prefer to have your own private room, a single supplement will apply.

What are the accommodations like?
