He decided to become a monk on his eighteenth birthday and dedicate his life to sharing this knowledge with others. For five years he lived in various monasteries, studying Vedic arts, sciences, and philosophy under world renowned teachers. He spent half of that time in India, traveling and immersing himself in the various holy sites.

After graduating from his monastic training and education, Madhu has built his own multi 6-figure business and serves as a conscious business and lifestyle coach. He has mentored hundreds of clients and students over the past decade, teaching bhakti, kirtan, Ayurveda, and spiritual entrepreneurship. He is passionate about making India’s spiritual culture and potency accessible to everyone, and has facilitated pilgrimages for dozens of sincere seekers looking to transform their lives.

FAQ’S

WHAT HEALTH PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE?

It is recommended to visit a travel medicine clinic, your physician, or have a consult with an Ayurvedic expert to discuss any proactive measures you could/should take.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN INDIA?

You can expect a livening experience to boost your soul and open your mind! But at the same time, please keep in mind that this is India and you should not expect US standards. We are traveling as Yogis and thus we will live simply but comfortably. As a cultural and spiritual experience note that we will be eating healthy but primarily vegetarian food with little to no alcoholic beverages. Please be comfortable with these limitations prior to signing up for this trip. The experiences you will have are designed to be transformational in spirit!

HOW WILL WE TRAVEL IN INDIA?

We will be traveling by private professional buses/vans and also one internal flight. If you have tendencies to get car sick, it is recommended to bring some over the counter medication, as the trips will be several hours in length.

CAN I SPEAK ENGLISH?

Our whole trip will be in English, and everyone speaks English in all the places we will go.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

You’ll want to fly into Mumbai airport. Currently, there are many round-trip flight options out of the Northeast U.S. for around $665-$1300. You need to arrive on or before January 23. The retreat will end on February 7, with transport to the Indira Gandhi International Airport (so we recommend booking your return flight from New Dehli, NOT Mumbai). We will arrive by 1 pm to the airport, so it's best to book any international flights from 4 pm onwards. For flight recommendations, feel free to ask us.

Note: Please dress “modestly”. Nothing short, low cut, too tight etc. Women should pack capri length pants and skirts that go past the knees and tops that aren’t too revealing. Long skirts are best and pants that aren’t skin tight. Shawls are always nice and can be used with flowy skirts on the festival days! Indians wear lots of color, so bright colors are welcome and encouraged!


It is a sign of respect and chastity to have women’s hair tied back or braided so we recommend bringing hair ties. Sometimes India can be a bit overwhelming for women with all of the attention that is paid, so these suggestions are so that we can blend in more and not call on too much extra attention. Women should bring one-piece bathing suits and a pair of shorts to wear for swimming. Men can wear shorts/pants above or below the knees and can wear bathing suits/ board shorts.


Remember to bring clothes for Yoga! Both men and women will have plenty of opportunities to purchase cheap, lightweight, and loose fitted clothing when we get to Rishikesh.

CANCELLATION POLICY

We recommend purchasing travel insurance for your trip that covers both medical emergencies and trip cancellation. Purchasing insurance protects you from losing money should you need to cancel your trip. We recommend squaremouth.com to search and compare travel insurance options. World Nomad Travel Insurance (worldnomads.com) is also a great and trusted option! Travelers insurance if typically less than $100 for your trip and worth the investment for both medical and cancellation coverage.

  • No refunds offered unless in the case of an emergency
