Ayurveda • Temples • Sadhus • Ganges • Himalayas
It is said in India that Yoga is the science of the human experience. Down south, dive deep into ecstatic morning yoga sessions and Ayurveda rejuvenation treatments overlooking the Arabian Sea. Explore the jungle Backwaters. Make a life offering at a Kali Temple. Up north, sit with sadhus (yogi holy men) who share their spiritual journey, and the meaning of yoga, and take questions as our guides paddle our rowboat along the Ganges River in sight of temples, bathing ghats, and cremation ghats. Then on to Nepal for a Himalayan Buddhist and Hindu adventure. Nourish your life experience!
10 hours of Ayurvedic massage
You read that right. Ten hours of Ayurvedic massage and treatments like shirodhara in Kerala. That’s why we call the Kerala segment the Sacred Sap Retreat. Every journey should start in a calm, relaxed manner. Only then can we drop in and truly experience the beauty of India, and the beauty waiting within ourselves.
“You held the space while I cracked my heart over the spire of India, golden yolk, pure honey, forever changed, I feel the sway and surrender of the fisherman’s line, India is decisive yet not cut-throat, illuminating my inner peace by the way of love. There are no words, but here I try to find a meager few. Thank you! For a trip that takes one deeper down into their inner cave, where tangible life and heart merge, dance and celebrate.”
— Cole (2019 India Retreat)
