A Vedic Adventure: Yoga, Ayurveda & Spirituality with Jasmine Grace, 29th November – 10th December

Experience the overwhelming magic and exoticness that is India. Let its ancient cultures and traditions mystify you, its exotic foods take you on a culinary voyage of its own, its colorful people charm you, its spirituality reveal the beauty of your soul and its ancient medicinal teachings heal you. This is a journey of self-transformation through a land of soul-stirring spiritual experiences and an in-depth practice and study of yoga, ayurveda and meditation.

This retreat is not for the faint-hearted, nor is it only for the fearless. It is for those seeking to discover themselves on a journey of personal transformation through a myriad of inner and outer experiences that last a lifetime. Isn’t it time you explored one of the world’s most gorgeous and ancient lands, and discovered yourself in a soul-stirring spiritual adventure? Your journey to self-discovery begins not when the universe says so but when you decide to start it. It is no accident that you have come across this.

Our journey begins in Kovalam, Kerala, on the shores of the Arabian Sea. Here we will immerse ourselves in a daily study and practice of Ayurveda and Yoga. We will observe an Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle for 7-days as part of our wellness experience and rejuvenation of the body on this retreat. From here, we traverse to the very southern tip of India before making our to Madurai, the ancient Tamil capital of culture. The city itself is a densely packed warren of streets, shops and bazaars.
