Join Jill and Dani on a spiritual adventure to the Indian Himalayan Foothills and beyond.
We’ll immerse ourselves in the culture and spiritual heritage of India, traversing the Old and New Cities of Delhi, then journey into the foothills of the Himalayas to the yoga capital of the world – Rishikesh.
We will be leading an 11 Night Tour, including 10 days of yoga with a 5 Day Immersive Retreat Program in the holy city of Rishikesh, exploring ancient traditions and participate in sacred fire ceremonies on the Mother Ganga.
Along the way, we’ll explore bustling markets, holy shrines and orange-robed sadhus, watching the melting pot of humanity and spiritual tradition, with our final leg of the journey culminating in the sacred city of Varanasi. A place where the cycle of life and death merge and the prayers of millions is imbued in the air.
Together we’ll explore inner and outer worlds at the holy cities of India. Woven throughout this tour is a unique blend of yoga, meditation and mindfulness personally facilitated by Jill and Dani.
Note: The holy city of Rishikesh is vegetarian and alcohol free.
