India Adventure Retreat
Delhi, Rishikesh, Udaipur & Goa
February 11th - 25th, 2022
15 Days | Yoga & Meditation | Delicious Food | Walking Tours | Palaces & Temples | The Himalayas | The Arabian Sea
Join me in 2022 for the adventure of a lifetime to the Motherland of the Yoga + Meditation practice - INDIA. We start in the grandeur and mayhem of Delhi for a few nights and move to the foothills of the Himalayas and the (alleged!) birthplace of Yoga - Rishikesh. We will then travel to the city of lakes and the Venice of India - Udaipur in the desert state of Rajasthan. Markets, temples, walking tours, boating and delicious Indian food will embrace us. The North experience is a total of nine nights. From Udaipur we will fly south for 5 nights of rest and restoration on the quiet south Goan beach of Agonda. Reading, writing, salt water soaking, wave jumping, nature integration and great food and relaxation awaits. The perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of North India. The total India Adventure Retreat is a 14 night experience.

Friday February 11th – Sunday February 13th | Delhi – 2 nights
Day 1-3: Arrive and enjoy settling into this magical land with a 2 night stay at the comfortable and spacious Roseate House New Delhi. Delhi is one of my favourite cities and along with daily yoga we will have multiple adventure outings and a glorious family lunch out together. Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, Gandhi's Ashram and Lodi Gardens will all be apart of our curated Delhi experience. Enjoy your creature comforts like the Roseate's beautiful gym or their rooftop heated pool or treat yourself to a massage. These first arrival days will be relaxed and kind and will allow you to settle calmly into such a foreign and confrontational land.
Sunday February 13th – Thursday February 17th | Rishikesh – 4 nights
Day 3-7: After waking in Delhi and enjoying a morning yoga practice and cozy breakfast at The Roseate House we will fly to Rishikesh and take in 4 nights and 5 days in one of the holiest places in India. Enjoy the power of the mountains and the River Ganges, the sights and smells of a small temple town and the adventurous areas of Rishikesh. Daily Yoga, morning breakfast, 2 family dinners, walking and temple tours, Aarti ceremonies, Beatles ashram visit and a very special visit and lunch at Ramana Garden are all a part of the Rishikesh Adventure. We will be staying at the brand new Lemon Tree Premiere in the northern part of Rishikesh near the Laxma Jhula Bridge – known as Tapovan.
Thursday February 17th – Sunday February 20th | Udaipur - 3 nights
Day 7-10: We will wake in Rishikesh and enjoying a sunrise Yoga practice and breakfast. After breakfast at Lemontree we will drive to the Dehradun Airport where we will catch a flight to Udaipur!
Upon arriving in Udaipur we will take the rest of the day to settle in at the beautiful and majestic Trident Udaipur. Udaipur is otherwise known as the 'City of Lakes' for its picturesque lakes framed by the Aravalli range. The history of Udaipur is a rich and colourful tapestry of lakeside palaces, forts, temples, markets and gardens which reflect the varied influences of centuries past. It beautifully holds the fury of Rajasthan in its heart and narrow laneways but offers a calming and serene landscape to unwind to with a cocktail at the end of a bustling day of sightseeing. We will have multiple days here to explore and sightsee and wander. Udaipur is a wonder for walkers and photographers and for those looking for adventure and fantastic food and shopping. A true highlight here will be our candlelight dinner on the western banks of Lake Pichola at Ambrai Restaurant.
Sunday February 20th - Friday February 25th | Agonda Beach, Goa – 5 nights
Day 10-15: We will be waking in Udaipur and will make our way to the airport to begin our journey south to the beaches of Goa. The quaint and quiet south beach – Agonda - is where we will close our adventure. Agonda is lush, tropical, beautiful and warm and offers a lovely opportunity slow down and replenish. Yoga overlooking the Arabian Sea, wave jumping, delicious seafood and some much needed and necessary rest and relaxation awaits. This year, The White Resort will be our home base for our time in paradise.
Day 16: Enjoy your final morning in Goa with a yoga practice on the beach and a delicious breakfast.
