Some locations in India are a carnival of colour and wild experiences, whilst others will provide a quiet journey for nourishment and relaxation. En route there will be regular opportunities to see different cultures, and live in the moment. This journey is about developing self awareness and embracing the dynamic world of far off places.
Guided yoga trips are a great opportunity to visit somewhere you wouldn’t go alone, while still having the support from people you trust.
Day 1: Delhi – Arrive and acclimatize to the hectic vibrancy of the capital city!
Stay in the heart of Delhi and visit the Main Bazaar. Shop for pashmina scarves, silver jewellery and hand-made sandles. Eat at one of the famous ‘pure vege’ restaurants: cheap, cheerful and delicious!
Day 2: Haridwar – The relaxing morning trip by train to Haridwar takes about 5 hours. This journey gives us the opportunity to see the rural beauty of Northern India. The en suite rooms at the guest house are spacious and the staff are friendly. After lunch, we will visit Birla Ghat and put a leaf boat offering in the river. This journey allows us to experience real yoga.

This temple sells heavenly perfumes and beautiful jewelled malas. We will come down by cable car which gives great views on the way down.

In the evening we will visit Harkipuri Ghat.
