I’m giving my second retreat! I look forward to having enough time to share a more complete experience of yoga, including pranayama, discussions and meditation. It will be in India next February. The details are below. You can also download the flyer. I hope you can come!
Yoga Retreat with Lisa Walford
February 15 – 28, 2014
Puri ❊ Calcutta ❊ Varanasi
Recharge, renew, and rejuvenate, in two of the most spiritually saturated places on Earth: Puri – one of the four Char Dhams, or sacred pilgrimage destinations in India – and Varanasi – the most ancient of cities, and a pilgrim’s mecca, where the rhythms of life are palpable next to the sacred waters of the Ganges. Magical, colorful, and rich with cultural history, our memories of Puri and Varanasi will last a lifetime.
We’ll enjoy daily practice of asana and pranayama with Lisa. We’ll visit the Sri Jagannath Temple in Puri, the Sun Temple in Konark, where we will enjoy an award-winning Dance and Music festival. Lastly, we’ll take several relaxing rickshaw rides and visit local craft villages.
A visit to the revered Kalighat Temple, dedicated to the Goddess Kali, will drop us into the bustling mix of life that typifies the urgency of seeking spiritual grace amidst the throng of humanity. A glimpse of the Goddess’s eyes is considered a blessing.
Greeting the sunrise by boat is magical; rambling through the back streets of this city will tease all our senses, and strolling on the riverside ghats with our guide is a photographer’s paradise. We’ll also visit Sarnath, where Buddha gave his first darshan.
