Yoga Trip to Rajasthan and Rishikesh 2015

Yoga Trip to Rajasthan and Rishikesh
21st February to 7th March 2015

The stillness of the desert. The natural rhythms of life, waking up with the sunrise. Smiles on children's faces. The innocence of Indian village life. Completely natural, wholesome, organic, locally grown food. A night sky so clear that you feel you can almost reach out and touch the Milky Way. This is everyday life in Jasnath Asan in tranquil central Rajasthan. Come and join us on the Yoga Trip 2015.

Full Description

I am honoured to be able to invite you to get to get a taste of India and to deepen your yoga practice in two particularly appropriate places:
Sri Jasnath Asan (Ashram), located in the desert of Rajasthan, 100 km from Jodhpur, and Rishikesh on the banks of the sacred river Ganges in the foothills of the Himalayas.
Highlights of the trip:
8 days in Jasnath Yoga Ashram in Rajasthan with 4 hours of Simon led yoga classes per day, including one hour of pranayama (breathing exercises) plus (for early birds) an additional one hour of silent meditation early in the morning.
Fire Dance Festival in Jasnath Ashram on the 27th of February.
2 days attendance of the Rishikesh Yoga Festival with a wide selection of yoga teachers and yoga styles.
