Begin your journey in Delhi, where our team warmly welcomes you before transitioning to our hotel for a rejuvenating overnight stay. The next morning, we embark on a scenic drive to Rishikesh, known as the Yoga Capital of the World.

Embark on an enchanting journey in Rishikesh, where each day begins with serene meditation and invigorating yoga practices to align our minds, bodies, and Yogini hearts. Join Victoria and Uschi, your loving teachers and guides, as we immerse ourselves in soul-nourishing meditation sessions on the banks of the Ganga River, followed by inspiring asana practices throughout this transformative journey. Dive into the spiritual energy of Rishikesh with visits to iconic sites like the Ganga Beach and the sacred Ganga Arati ritual, venturing deeper into our journey with visits to Vasistha's Cave for profound meditation experiences amidst the beauty of the Ganges beachfront. Explore the spiritual legacy at the Beatles Ashram, engaging in soulful practices like Rangoli making and sound healing, as we embrace the divine essence within and awaken to the fullness of our being.

Our spiritual immersion culminates with a blissful puja at the revered Bootnath Shiva Temple, followed by evenings of reflection and relaxation at our sanctuary in the Green Hotel.

Nov 20th - Nov 24th: Kerala Retreat

Bid farewell to Rishikesh as we open our hearts to the next chapter awaiting us in Kerala. Journey to the enchanting land where lush greenery meets tranquil backwaters and pristine beaches.

This holistic approach to wellness will rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit, allowing you to fully embrace the essence of the radiant Yogini within.

Begin your Kerala journey with a personalized consultation with an Ayurvedic doctor, who will craft an Ayurvedic treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. Immerse yourself in transformative Ayurvedic beauty treatments guided by the expertise of our Ayurvedic team.

Mornings are greeted with invigorating practices led by Victoria, followed by nourishing breakfasts and rejuvenating Ayurvedic treatments. Afternoons offer the freedom to explore the vibrant town or indulge in optional activities, while evenings are dedicated to deepening our connection through Yogini Satsang sessions. Here, you'll be captivated by the exclusive teachings of the 64 Yoginis, a rare treat shared by Uschi, whose lifelong dedication to studying this tradition has led her on a journey of profound insight and wisdom.

As our retreat journey draws to a close, we gather for a sacred closing ritual, honoring our growth and transformation.

Awakening the Yogini Within on Three Levels

 

During this retreat, we will embark on a journey to awaken the Yogini within on three levels:

**The Mind:** Delve into the wisdom of the 64 Yoginis and the Goddesses of the Hindu pantheon, exploring how they are reflections of all the different facets of ourselves. Through ancient teachings and mythologies, we will awaken the divine wisdom that resides within our minds.

**The Heart & Womb:** Awaken the radiance within our heart and womb, tapping into the powerful energy centers and deep-rooted intuition that lie within us. Through heart-opening practices and sacred rituals, we will embrace the divine feminine energy that flows through our being.

**The Physical Body:** Embody the radiant essence of the divine feminine energy within our physical bodies, becoming magnets for all that we truly desire on this spiritual journey. Through yoga, Ayurveda, and self-care practices, we will nurture and honor our bodies as sacred vessels of the divine.

Join us on this transformative retreat to awaken the radiant Yogini within and embark on a journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and spiritual growth in the heartland of India.

Embark on an enchanting journey to Agra and Vrindavan, where the timeless tales of love and devotion await. Our optional add-on begins with a warm welcome in Delhi, where we settle into our shared accommodation for a restful night's sleep. As dawn breaks on the 11th, we gather by the pool for our first group discussion, immersing ourselves in the spirit of adventure and camaraderie. Following a hearty breakfast, we bid farewell to Delhi and make our way to Agra, stopping along the scenic route for refreshing chai and coconut treats.

 

Upon our arrival in Agra, we're greeted by the majestic presence of the Taj Mahal, a symbol of eternal love and architectural brilliance. Our guided tour offers insights into its captivating history and the immortal love story it represents. After a morning filled with wonder, we return to our hotel for a delicious lunch before embarking on a journey to Vrindavan, the sacred abode of Shri Radha and Lord Krishna.

In Vrindavan, we are immersed in the divine ambiance of the ISKON Mandir, where we participate in soul-stirring kirtan and receive blessings from the divine couple. A visit to the bustling Gopi market offers opportunities to collect handmade Tulsi malas and exquisite attire, souvenirs of our spiritual journey. As the day comes to a close, we return to our hotel for a sumptuous dinner, reflecting on the beauty and serenity of the day's experiences.

On the 13th, we bid farewell to the enchanting lands of Agra and Vrindavan, returning to Delhi with hearts full of cherished memories. The journey concludes with a free afternoon and evening, providing opportunities for last-minute shopping or leisurely exploration.

Victoria's Time in India

VICTORIA’S TIME IN INDIA:

I had been dreaming of visiting India since I started practicing yoga in 1999. At the beginning of 2019, I was presented with the opportunity to travel to India on retreat with a beloved teacher. At the time, I had an insatiable desire to go, but many obstacles stood in my way. My gut intuition was so strong and I put the deposit down knowing that somehow I would make it there. I was so right! I arrived in the most foreign and exotic place I had ever traveled and I also had a sense that I was home. India spoke to my soul with its colors, curries, and breathtaking temples. At the time, I was an established practitioner and yoga teacher, yet I knew NOTHING about its rich history and traditions and so I emptied myself so that I could be filled by its wisdom. Words will never be enough to explain what I learned during my time in India. My Sadhana, or personal practice, completely changed during the trip. I realized by observing the Indian culture that Sadhana was ingrained in every part of their day, from the moment they woke up with the sun to meditate at the Ganges River to the moment they went to bed. Devotion and mindfulness was a lifestyle.  Every breath and every meal was an opportunity to practice devotion. I was so in awe of my time in Rishikesh that I decided to stay beyond my retreat and visit the city of Varanasi, the original home of Shiva. It's now the first stop on our sacred pilgrimage and I am so honored to present its deep sacredness to you all. It's time to go home to the land of our beloved practice and learn from the land, the Ganges river, the Himalayas, and the extraordinary people of India.
