“Let noble thoughts come to us from all directions.” – Rig Veda A large

India can seem unapproachable and insurmountable. But what if you could go to India with an experienced guide by your side — one who speaks the language, knows the culture and can guide you through yoga and meditation every day? What if you could take in the cultural and spiritual wonders of India with someone who has local connections, street know-how, and knows the lay of the land?

Your safety and comfort is my utmost goal, so you can relax and take in the culture. I will guide you through all the formalities required prior to travel, from visa to vaccinations and acquaint you with the cultural norms to be mindful of once we are there. When you we embark, I will pick you up at the airport, be your daily guide and support, and then see you off when it is time to go home.

I have extensive experience planning travel in India. This means you won’t have to worry about logistics. That’s my job.

India has many amazing things to offer and I am delighted for the opportunity to share yoga, meditation and the wonders of my homeland with you!

Daylong and Half-day Retreats

During daylong retreats we’ll explore a variety of different mindfulness methods intended to help you live more fully, more authentically, and with more friendliness and kindness.
The day will be spent in noble silence, meaning no verbal or non-verbal interactions with other participants during sessions or breaks, no eye contact, no electronic communications. The primary reason for silence on meditation retreats is to support your meditation practice. Silence helps keep your focus on cultivating mindfulness and concentration.
The day will include seated meditation, a short dharma talk or instruction, mindful movement, mindful eating, journaling and walking meditation. The silence will end at in the late afternoon, and we will finish with a half-hour dedicated to questions and sharing.
