Taking you into the Himalayas, two Master Yogis, Padma, and Hasu will share their lives’ work with you: Padma’s deep wisdom of Meditation, Yoga and Satsang, Hasu’s years of experience living Yoga and Service.

We will roam the hilltop Buddhist town of Dharamsala where the Dalai Lama lives, hike through mountain villages of the exotic Valley of the Gods, wander by the Vyaas River, and be guided daily in classes of meditation, yoga and deep knowledge.

This trip offers a rare combination of Himalayan Yoga wisdom traditions and practices. Explore the life of a Yogi with daily yoga and meditation classes. Dive deep into your practice in the very mountains where these traditions originated. These clear and accessible practices will open you up to your most joyful self.
