Join Twist Yogis on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to India!
Spend seven days/six nights on a sacred journey to Northern India, the birthplace of yoga. We will immerse ourselves into the culture of meditation, prayer, & practice by visiting sacred sites, the Himalayas & the sacred Ganges River. To visit North India brings a deeper sense of spirituality and inspiration upon your return home.
Our expertly crafted tour through India’s most treasured sights begins in the Himalayan foothills, exploring Rishikesh, the self proclaimed “Yoga Capital of the World,” and magnet to spiritual seekers for decades.
For four nights we’ll stay in Rishikesh, located on the banks of the Ganges River and made famous by a visit from the Beatles in the 60s. We will start each day with pranayama, meditation & asana practice. Visits to sacred temples are also on the schedule, as are an opportunity to white water raft the Ganges, hike to a local village, take a cleansing dunk in the clean waters of the Ganges, and some free time to honor your own interests or spend a day shopping in Rishikesh.
We’ll then visit Varanasi for two nights, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world and for many the highlight of any journey to India. We’ll practice yoga in the morning, witness all of life’s rituals on full display along the banks of the holy Ganges River, explore the city on foot with an expert guide, and enjoy the sunset by boat on the Ganges.
We will have local “insider” guides in each city. We’ll have our own private drivers and buses in each location and will fly between locations for maximum comfort. Our tried-and-true hotels have been chosen with the upmost focus on comfort, luxury and safety.
Its impossible to travel to India without being touched by it for many years to come and our entire team will work to provide a smooth and truly unforgettable travel experience. Join us!
This retreat is open to all levels of yogis who are wanting to deepen their yoga journey by traveling to the source or for those who have the urge to explore a world entirely different from our own. We are excited to share our love for India and Yoga together.
