Want to travel India all by yourself? It sounds exciting and also equally terrifying! Nothing can really prepare you for the amazing, chaotic, magical and sometimes uncomfortable journey of India.
Joining a yoga retreat can be a great way to begin to understand the culture before heading off on your own. Getting your bearings with someone who knows the culture, the land and can offer you wonderful yoga and meditation can set the tone for an epic adventure to follow.
Who knows? You might even make a new best friend travel buddy for even more of an adventure.
I encourage you to read the description of the retreat I am offering in March. Feel free to reach out for room rates and any questions you might have.
This retreat is intended for those wanting to deepen their yoga and meditation practice while exploring the delights of South India! This is an opportunity to nourish yourself while traveling safely and mindfully with other women in a conscious and uplifting manner. Oh yeah, this retreat currently has all women signed up. If a man is interested to join I will ask the ladies on board and see if its a yes!

We will spend the first 4 nights at our private resort off of Kovalam Beach. We will focus on yoga, meditation, mantra japa, and optional Ayurvedic therapies. We will visit with a wonderful Indian teacher in the local village where we will go deep into meditation and healing as well as connecting with the people there.

MEET YOUR GUIDE
I’m Amanda and I have been leading retreats in India and other parts of the world for over 7 years. I am nearly 40 years old and have been teaching for 15 years in total.
India is a long way to travel to only stay at a retreat center. I believe the heart of the experience is in getting to know the people and the way of the culture. That’s why I’ve designed a simple retreat to give you the rejuvenation of yoga and meditation along with a little travel to take in the magic and people of South India!
