Yoga Retreat to India: A journey of a lifetime

Ever wanted to go to Rishikesh, the yoga abode tucked away in the Himalayas? Or to Mysore, South India’s yoga capital? Why not go to both with someone who will ensure comfort, safety and above all, a great spiritual experience.

Yoga Journal Singapore invites you to Yoga Yatra, a Journey of a Lifetime. Yatra means ‘journey’ or ‘pilgrimage’ in Sanskrit, and most yogis want to go to India at least once in their lifetime. Many are unsure of how and who to go with, so we thought we can help make it possible for you.

Author and Yoga Journal Singapore editor, Kavita Chandran, will lead this trip, which first goes to Rishikesh where she will attend the International Yoga Festival with you. You will stay at the pristine Aloha on the Ganges (picture above). She will then guide you to Mysore, where she received her teacher training and you will stay in the yoga shala that inspired her to author her book The Head that won’t Stand. In Mysore, you will learn from Acharya Bharath Shetty, the protagonist in her book and a man whose teachings are deep rooted in yogic philosophy and ancient wisdom.

This trip could change your outlook and perspective on many things, and will be an experience you will never forget. Fly the best, stay with the best and learn from the best.

“I am so excited to lead this trip. There is much to learn about my roots in India, about the birth place of yoga and about spirituality surrounding the Ganges river. I can’t wait to lead this yatra – it’s great that I speak the language, understand various dialects, am familiar with traditions and cultures; safety and comfort will be top on my list, of course.”
– Kavita Chandran, Yoga Journal Editor-In-Chief
