Maybe you’ve wanted to travel to India for a long time? 

I’m pretty sure that it’s on your bucket list.

You are a woman who has travelled the world but somehow has never quite made it to India.

Or maybe you have been to India but didn’t experience it in a comfortable or spiritual way. 

I know that was my first experience of India and one of the reasons why I created this Yoga Holiday.

You are a woman who loves Yoga, adores being surrounded in beauty and know’s there’s something more to life that you desire.

Travel to Exotic India with a group of like-hearted Women

I was YOU and I can promise that this is the way to experience the magic of spiritual travel in India without any of the stress.

You can put your worries aside, this is not India on a shoestring, it is sophisticated boutique travel for ladies ready to take a luxury Yoga Holiday for themselves.

The type of India that I’m talking about is for women who know what they want and appreciate life’s comforts.

You are a woman who loves Yoga & Travel and would like to tick this one off your bucket list as well as reignite and connect to your Spiritual Self. 

Would you like to experience the Magic Carpet ride that is India?

India is colourful, magical and mystical.  

A place that tantalises the senses and uplifts the spirit.

A place of pilgrimage rich in cultural tradition and daily rituals.

A deeply transformational land with an innately spiritual soul.

But it doesn’t have to be like any of the stories that you’ve heard.

And you definitely don’t have to sacrifice any of your daily comforts to experience it authentically.

You will travel in style with a personal airport pick up, private coaches, flights instead of trains and both luxury and boutique hotels with all of the creature comforts of home.

This is a Yoga Holiday for women with all levels of Yoga experience who share an interest in exploring exotic cultures and surrounding themselves with the sisterhood of supportive female energy.

Let me tell you a little more about my experience of Yoga & Travel in India…

I’ve sat with Holy Men and discussed the Bhagavad Gita on the banks of the River Ganges and I’ve been initiated with my personal mantra received from the stars, through the medium of a Vedic Astrologer.

I’ve been told of my dharma and my life’s path, unbeknownst to me, all in the palm of my hand.

I’ve spent 10 day’s in silence experiencing authentic Ashram life.

I’ve meditated in caves and completed lengthy and profound Ayurvedic cleanses to align my body, mind and spirit.

These are some of experiences that I wish to share with you.

I want you to fall deeply and passionately in love with your own sense of spirit and reconnect with your Spiritual Self.

To re-connect with source and the wellspring of your innate power; a place of boundless support, love and joy.

To understand the practice of Yoga in it’s entirety, ancient rituals and all.

To be inspired by the richness and depth of this tradition and to ground those experiences in your modern life.

This is your opportunity to experience the abundant gifts of Divine Mother India in a way that is nourishing and enjoyable.

An opportunity for you to begin to live more consciously whilst cultivating a deeper connection to the space of the Heart.

What previous guests have experienced…

Ready for a Yoga Holiday?

Maybe you’ve only just started Yoga and it’s already got you hooked.

Or perhaps you’ve been practising for a long time and you couldn’t imagine your life without it.

I know that for me finding Yoga completely changed the trajectory of my life.

Clearly you’ve also fallen in love with Yoga so it seems only natural that you should visit the country of it’s origin.

In India, Yoga is a way of life not just a form of exercise.

You will find liberation and freedom in your practice.

You will experience Yoga with a Guru.

You will be uplifted by all of the branches of the Tree of Yoga.

You will explore the inner landscape through the outer journey.

The Divine Mother is like a graceful swan.

She sweeps you in under her wing and draws out any impurities and replenishes them with only goodness.

It is with this grace that you’ll immerse yourself into the essence of Yoga – a right of passage for all Yoginis – especially Yoga Teachers!

Imagine India without the Belly Ache!
