India retreat 2021
The journey starts the 27th of February in Rishikesh, all participants will be picked up at Dehradun airport if arriving anytime on this date. The journey ends the 7th of March where all participants will be offered a lift back to the airport of Dehradun if leaving anytime on this date.
Broadening your spiritual and cultural horizon – and refining your yoga and meditation practice; this journey takes you to the yoga capital of the world Rishikesh where we will practice with local teachers, chant and prayer at local ceremonies, shower under waterfall, eat amazing, healthy and vegetarian food, walk in the Himalayas, have our soul cleansed in a traditional puja ceremony and swim in the clear waters of Ganges.
We journey to Rishikesh – here we will practice twice daily ( – except when excursions prevents us from doing so) either with a local teacher or with Kristina. Every morning and evening we will savour a long asana practice followed by meditation. We will visit the Shiva temple and take part in a puja ceremony and have a half day in the sacred city of Haridwar – believed to be where all the deities met and bathed in The Ganges. There we will take part in the daily Aarti ceremony when the sun sets and thousands of people gather to pray, chant and wish. We will hike up into the foothills of Himalaya – watch and swim near gorgeous waterfalls.
This retreat includes the option of participating in The Yoga Festival for yoga classes, spiritual teachings, talks, lunches, Sat Sangs and more. As we approach the travel dates we will guide each student in choosing these optical practices and together create a package that works and is well balanced.
The 8th day in the morning ( Sunday the 7th March) we will leave for the airport. Note that you can prolong the journey as you wish, we will take care of transport to and from the airport only at the 27th February and the 7th March.
