India 2019

Spiritual Study Retreat

Vrindavan, India

March 1-10, 2019

We travel to Vrindavan - known as one of India’s most sacred places where according to Hinduism, Lord Krishna spent his childhood days. The stories of Krishna’s transcendental pastimes and play are still alive here.  You will immerse yourself in an authentic and traditional cultural experience. At the Jiva Institute, your days will be filled with lectures, yoga classes, meditation, excursions, and more. Expand your perspective. See and live India as it has always been.


"This is not your typical site-seeing vacation or yoga retreat.  It is an opportunity to live and breathe the experience of yoga in one of the most holy and spiritual places in India.  For me the trip was transformative - not just from gaining a deeper understanding of yoga and experiencing such a different culture, but from learning so much about myself by being outside my comfort zone in a very safe way. There were so many highlights for me including rooftop yoga at sunrise with the monkeys scampering over head, riding the rickshaws through the streets of Vrindavan, shopping in the market, visiting the Taj in our new Indian attire, the boat ride down the Yumana river, and our visits to the elephant and cow sanctuaries.  Every day, every meal, every shower was a new experience!!! Shannon and Gabi provided excellent leadership and inspiration throughout the retreat and even though I didn't go with a friend, I came home with many new ones!" ~ Nancy
