Mystical India – pilgrimage to the birthplace of yoga
6 October 2016 @ 12:00 - 16 October 2016 @ 12:00
India has given me beautiful presents. Insights and new perspectives that I would not have gathered in my modern Western comfort zone. Sometimes you need to move out of it and look at the world from a different perspective. Check out this trip and let me know when you are ready to join.
We travel to North India and visit the most amazing spiritual places. We practice yoga and meditation on the banks of the sacred river Ganges, meet with sadhu’s (enlightened masters) visit ancient temples, meditate in sacred Himalayan caves and dive deep into the wonders of Yogic India—most of them off the beaten tourist track.
We will discover Hatha Yoga, Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Jnana Yoga and discuss their relevance in daily life.
Traveling through India with us will make you feel safe, comfortable and provided with anything you need. Transport, accomodation and meals being arranged for you saves a lot of hassle, stress AND money. The traveling schedule looks intense but there will be enough time for peaceful reflection and to let our experiences sink in. We will sleep in beautiful places; sometimes more basic, sometimes more luxury but always with the authentic Indian atmosphere. It is not a luxury retreat, it is not a shopping experience and not a sightseeing tour. We invite you to dive deeper and you will have a trip that you will never forget.
Day 1: Arrival in Delhi
You will be welcomed at the airport and will go to a quality hotel in Delhi with a great rooftop terrace. The next morning we take a train at 6.30 AM. It is recommendable to arrive one day earlier in Delhi so you have some time to settle down.
Day 2-5: Rishikesh
In Rishikesh we will practice outdoor yoga on different spots, attend beautiful Puja’s (ritual offerings) and take sacred dips in the Ganges. We meet with sadhu’s and will meditate in a special cave and do a 4-hour raft on the Ganges river.
During this trip we will have one full-day-off in Rishikesh for you to relax or discover the area.
Day 6. Haridvar
Haridwar is a famous pilgrimage place that means “Doorway to God”. In Haridvar we attend an ancient evening ritual at the Ganges, we have dinner in an authentic Indian hotel and take the nighttrain to Varanasi.
Day 7-8 Varanasi
Varanasi is the most ancient city in the world, where dead bodies are being burnt on the river ghats of the Ganges. We will discover this sacred area by boat, do little offerings and experience holy pujas to honour the river Ganges. In the early morning we will enjoy the serene silence during a sunset boatride which is a mystical experience.
Day 9-10 Agra & Vrindavan
We have lunch in a very luxury hotel in Agra on our way to Vrindavan. In Vrindavan we check in the MTV ashram which is a beautiful and Krishna devoted resort. We visit the IskconTemple, play kirtan in the evenings, visit beautiful temples and rituals and discover the market streets.
