India Yoga + Seva Retreat
February 5 – 15, 2020
Pre-Trip Taj Mahal Extension: February 2-5, 2020
Main Yoga + Service Retreat: February 5-15, 2020
Join myself and Zohra Campbell (Indigo Wellness Center) as we partner with The Village Experience on this exciting Seva and Yoga Retreat throughout India. The Pre-Trip will take you to the UNESCO World Heritage sites around Delhi and to the world famous Taj Mahal. Then meet the rest of the group to work alongside Women’s Interlink Foundation in Kolkata and Bolpur and learn about ways to rescue, rehabilitate, and reintegrate survivors of human-trafficking. We end the trip with an adventure to the beaches and backwaters of Kerala you’ll never forget!
We hope you’ll join us for this once in a lifetime experience. More details can be found below and at the links provided. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to email Mikki.
Service + Fundraising
The Village Experience will be coordinating four days of service and experiences with Women’s Interlink Foundation in Kolkata and Bolpur. During our time with Women’s Interlink, we will learn about their income-generating activities that help to create employment for vulnerable women and will stay in their guest house in the artisan village of Bolpur. Additionally, our group will have one full day where we roll up our sleeves to work on a development project for the organization that our group will have fundraised for in the months leading up to the trip. We will pick this project as a group, based on the needs of Women’s Interlink.
We are asking that as part of your commitment to this trip, you are prepared to raise at least $500 in donations for this project. You can make the donation yourself, you can host fundraisers, you can ask your friends and family for support, or work with Mikki, Zohra and Kelly to come up with other ideas.
Most days of the retreat will begin or end (depending on our schedule) with a yoga practice, led by me or Zohra. These practices will be all levels yoga classes and will help us to integrate and process our experiences on this retreat. You can learn more about me here or Zohra here.
Our retreat has time built in for you to have unplanned, free time to explore and soak up India. Included in the itinerary is time to shop artisan markets, visits to temples, time to relax on the beach, a houseboat tour of the backwaters of Kerala, tours of the colonial town of Cochin, and lots of delicious Indian food. Our main trip includes days in both northern and southern India – and if you add on the pre-trip Taj Mahal extension, you’ll get to experience a third region of the country as well.
Our Yoga + Service trips are planned and managed by the wonderful team at The Village Experience. Head over to their page for more details, cost, and full itinerary!
