The time is approaching for this year to end and another one to begin. This is the opportunity for us to contemplate on our life event of this year and to carry forward the learning into the next phase. Lets take one more step towards understanding ourselves and realizing our destiny.
We invite you to join us for 6 nights and 7 days (starting from 10th Jan: 1:00 PM till 16th Jan: 11:00 AM) for an spiritual yoga retreat in the glorious city of bells.
The Trip is hosted by our experienced and practicing Yoga Teacher Nidhi Thakur. She has been practicing yoga for more than 5 years and holds an Yoga Alliance International accreditation. She teaches yoga to all age groups and she finds herself really fortunate to bring a difference in her practitioner's lives. She believes that Yoga needs to be applied into one's every aspect of life in order to understand its true objective.
