South India Yoga Tour Deadline Approaching
If you have been on the fence about whether or not to sign up for our yoga and meditation India tour, the deadline to sign up is only a short time away, January 31st.
The Golden Sands and Silvery Backwaters of South India tour, February 26 through March 11, 2012 is a yoga-focused journey. The leader, Padma Stewart, is an internationally renowned yoga and meditation teacher with an impressive level of knowledge in Eastern practices.
The tour includes plenty of time for hatha yoga, breathing exercises, Sanskrit chanting, meditation, philosophy and other yogic techniques. Padma also offers private, one-on-one consultations.
In addition to Cochin where our journey begins, and Chennai where our journey ends, some of the highlights include: Munnar, a confluence of three mountain rivers — Mudrapuzha, Nallathani and Kundala, a lovely hill station situated in the western ghats and nestled in the midst of cardamom, tea and coffee plantations; a Backwater Cruise amongst a microcosm of flora and fauna and serene village life; a four-night Yoga & Meditation Retreat at a lovely Ayurvedic resort set on 14 acres of lush green land overlooking the blue sea and soft golden sands on the shores of the Arabian Sea.
One of my favorite places in South India is the incredibly ancient city of Madurai, with its Meenakshi Temple, where I was blessed by a sacred elephant.
Kanchipuram, the Golden City of a Thousand Temples is one of Hinduism’s seven most sacred cities, and Mahabalipuram is a World Heritage Site where you can see depictions of the great epic Mahabharata.
This is a guaranteed departure and as it is a small, intimate and lovely group, this is a very unique opportunity to study with Padma and go deeply into practice and experiencing South India at its best. The deadline to book is January 31st and you will need a passport that is valid for at least six months, and a Tourist Visa for India (allow 1-2 weeks to process). Vaccinations are not mandatory.
