About this trip

Mama India. 

  

This pilgrimage is a fairytale journey to the heart. I still remember the first time arrived in Rishikesh. In an instant moment I had to let go of any ideas and concepts about life and how it should look like that I was holding on to.  Rajasthan- with 1001 nights fairytale feeling – will add to the magic with the most beautiful colors, variety of food, Ashram, fort and temples. Mama India will show you ways of living that you haven’t seen before, teach you things you couldn’t imagine before and help you find a depth within yourself that you haven’t been able to nurture before. Mama India will love you, shake you and transform you. She welcomes you with open arms if you are open to a whole new view of life.   

This is a journey to the roots of Yogic wisdom.  You will sit by the holy river Ganga and say your prayers, be part of sacred ceremonies, get blessed by vedic priests. You will see magnificent temples, hike in the Himalayas and eat outstanding Indian food. You will visit old Forts, sleep in a desert Ashram and practice Yoga with Guruji.  You will deepen your understanding of Yoga as an holistic Art of Living that guides the way to an embodied life. Mama India will teach you how to live your life as a prayer.  

Get ready for a journey that will change your life. This is not a Yoga retreat but a pilgrimage to wisdom. It demands openness to dive deep &  look beyond. It involves overcoming challenges, and cultivating patience and compassion. A little closer to our natural way of being, one breath at a time.

With so much love and excitement,

xxx Alexia


About the places we will visit:

Rishikesh: 

Rishikesh is known to be the capital of Yoga. Home of the Rishis (Saints). In no other place in the world you will find so many Ashrams (sacred centers of knowledge, wisdom, devotion & service) and opportunities to deepen your holistic Yoga practice. You will connect with the roots of Yoga by feeling the place, taking steps on the sacred soil and bathing in the holy river Ganga. This is an initation into the Yogic path as it is and always has been: A holistic science of life that is gracefully blessed by the art of the divine.

Jodhpur: 

Jodhpur is set in the stark landscape of the Thar desert. It is called the “Blue City” because most of the houses are painted in Indigo blue color. It is incredibly rich in heritage and culture with fairy-tale palaces, historical forts, colorful festivals and royalty. Jodhpur will open the doors to magic for you. We will visit the majestic Fort, go on camel rides and visit a beautiful ancient Ashram in the middle of the Thar desert. Enjoy an overnight stay in the middle of nowhere, but equipped with everything: the best homemade Indian food, inspiring Yoga classes with Guruji, a crystal clear sky filled with infinite stars and an experience you will never forget.

Pushkar:

Pushkar is known as “the rose garden of Rajasthan” as the essence of the famous Pushkar rose is exported all over the world. Along with an interesting mythological history, a legacy of timeless architectural heritage makes Pushkar a fascinating city. According to legends, Lord Brahma, believed to be the creator of the universe, dropped a lotus to the ground leading to the immediate creation of a lake. He then decided to name the place after the flower, and thus the area got the name Pushkar. The city is home to the only temple dedicated to Lord Brahma in the whole world. Hindus consider a journey to Pushkar to be the ultimate pilgrimage that must be undertaken to attain salvation. Pushkar is one of my favorite pilgrimage places in the world. Inspired by local art and crafts, daily prayer rounds around the lake and temple visits that will leave you touched deeply. A feeling that will remain within your heart.

Jaipur: 

Jaipur is known as the Pink City because, in 1876, the city was painted a terracotta pink color—traditionally a color of hospitality—to welcome Edward, Prince of Wales. The city is known for its intricate handicrafts, Forts and stunning monuments. The Jal Mahal (Water Palace), located in the middle of Man Sagar Lake, is not only worth a visit, but worth to start dreaming only in fairytales. In Jaipur we will have the opportunity to shop fabrics and clothes, enjoy the buzzing markets and yummy variety of food.

I am grateful to Alexia and Nicola for pulling off this amazing retreat. It was the perfect mix of adventure and journey within. The retreat was fun yet insightful, I got to see a lot of Morocco and also looked deeper into myself. Thank you for the vinyasa and yin yoga practices, meditation and psychadelic breathwork, and the wonderful team in Morocco who took an amazing care of us and shared with us the magic of their culture.

This trip was exceptionalLy amazing. The location was clean, well equipped, quiet, with an own private beach and jacuzzi, plus the owner contribute to the community by building schools and workplaces. The Yoga techer, Alexia, has deep knowledge about the path of Yoga, gave not only beautiful Yoga classes, but also teachings about breathwork (Kriyas) and Yin Yoga classes. The programm was adventurous, healing, varied and there was still time for ourselves. Loved it!

This trip was unforgettable. Alexia brought a group together, which was so warm-hearted, open minded and beautiful. Her classes are intense, intelligent and varied, her words always hit your heart. She’s not only a great yoga instructor but a spiritual mentor and an inspiring business woman. Thank you! We practiced, we sang, we shared what to let go, shared our visions and stepped into a stronger, clearer self. I highly recommend every adventure with Alexia. I’ll celebrate New Year’s with you again!
