About this trip

Is Mother India calling you? 
Join Senior Yoga Teacher, Meditation Teacher and Mentor, Kaya Slater for 7 Days of Pure Bliss and Deep Exploration of Self, in wonderous Himachal Pradesh in Northern India.  

Let us retreat to Mother India together and enjoy a deeply divine exploration of Yoga in all of its many powerful expressions.   Kaya's intuition, training and experience and love for life, give her the ability to weave a powerful umbrella of skills and tools together to bring a deeply profound healing experience to those she meets and work/plays with.
Your retreat includes 7 days of Asana, Pranayama (breath) and Raja Yoga/ Meditation, Bhakti Yoga (devotion), Naad Yoga (Yoga of sound), Mantra and much much more.  Your practice will be enhanced by the peace and serenity of Mirage Andretta, a retreat center surrounded by the beauty of the magical Dhauladhar Mountain Range.  
Kaya is the perfect person to spend retreat with, her mother is Punjabi and India is where her heart is.  She is at home there, and always has been.  She knows the way of life, the people and the culture, so whether it's your first time, or you are returning, Kaya can introduce you to the magic of India.  Words cannot explain how Mother India captures your heart, and you will simply....never be the same again! You will leave a lover of India...I'm certain of that!  With thoughtful intention, this journey will serve not as just a once in a lifetime opportunity, but offer unforgettable experiences in harmony with Mother Earth.

We have a limited number of spaces available for this retreat as it will fill up quickly! Numbers are fairly intimate....once the accommodation is full, its full!
