Join us for our spiritual pilgrimage to the motherland of yoga — AMAZING INDIA!

With its rich tapestry of spirituality and tradition, India offers an experience that is both soul-stirring and transformative, and this trip will capture that essence perfectly.

Every day will be a new revelation, from waking in FIRST-CLASS HOTELS that provide a haven of tranquility to indulging in exquisitely prepared Ayurvedic meals that were are nourishing as they are delicious.

We seamlessly blend luxury and spirituality, something you've never encountered before. Every detail of this pilgrimage is crafted to not only respect but enhance your spiritual journey.

WHAT WILL WE DO?

First, we will all meet virtually beforehand to develop an initial sense of community and comfort with each other. (We will meet on Zoom a few times before and after the pilgrimage. No more awkward introductions!) Then, we will fly out (most of us on the same flight so you don’t have to travel alone) and arrive in Mumbai.

In Mumbai, we will experience the world renowned Flower Festival at the gorgeous Chowpatty Temple, which will be hosted by the founder HH Radhanath Swami. From Mumbai, we will travel to the award-winning Govardhan Eco Village - Ayurvedic treatments, Cow therapy, and life-changing kirtans, to say the least.

After an immersion in bhakti wisdom and kirtan in sacred company, we will head to Rishikesh, the world center of yoga, for an adventure where we will bathe in the sacred river Ganges, hike to the top of the Himalayas, experience ancient ceremonies, and venture into caves that date back thousands of years! For some, the pilgrimage ends here.


For others, however, we will end our trip with a Vrindavan tour. This part of the trip is optional - but highly encouraged. Vrindavan, the most special of all sacred sites in India, is where we will get a full taste of real, ancient yoga tradition. A small town fully immersed in the ecstasy of spiritual practice while visiting untouched flower gardens, and ancient villages.
