3 nights AMRITSAR & 6 nights HIMALAYAS


The Himalayas are a very important spiritual place that are incredibly close to my heart and part of my own healing process. It is hard to explain the feeling of peace and calm that we feel in the presence of these awesome and beautiful mountains. 

We will begin our Yoga Holiday in Amritsar, the home of the magnificent Golden Temple where will spend 2 full days & 3 nights.

Highlights;

· The magnificent ‘Golden Temple’, the most spiritually significant shrine in Sikhism. 

· Rooftop Yoga

· Local cuisine

· Wagah (India) – Attari (Pakistan) Border Ceremony (subject to change)

On the 3rd day (4th night) we will travel by luxury minibus to Dharmasala (truth place) my second home.  


We will stay at the quaint & serene Udechee Huts in Naddi for 6 nights (picture). You can expect; daily Yoga (in Sign Language), homemade local cuisine, hiking trips in the surrounding areas of natural and spiritual beauty, visits to Naddi village, Dharmkot village, Bhagsu Waterfall, the Dalai Lama’s Temple, Hot Springs & more.


In October the mountains are in in full bloom, like spring in the UK, following the drenching from the monsoon rains. Flowers blossom, skies are pure blue and the air is fresh & clean. The waterfalls are abundant and the whole area is truly alive with natural beauty and peace. 

The Himalayas are a uniquely special, healing & mystical location for me and millions of others. They include the highest mountains in the world and are a remarkably spiritual & healing place.
