Journey of yoga and meditation in the North of the India

When we think of organizing a trip to India for Easter, we set out to be an experience as complete as possible, without limiting ourselves to do tourism, including yoga and spirituality, but also the human experience of contrast for the senses that this great country offers. Montse Lominchar writes.

We decided to visit the Taj Mahal, the temple... in Delhi and, without much further delay, put heading northward, toward the upper course of the sacred Ganges and Rishikesh, the world capital of yoga, peacefully nestled on the slopes of the Himalayas.

We will experience several days living in the ashram and then a few days of relaxation, yoga and meditation in the Rainforest House, a true natural paradise on the banks of the Ganges. This trip is designed for all levels of practice, regardless of your starting point.

Guide, tutor and interpreter of this trip will be our friend Yogesh Saini (www.yogeshyoga.com). Yogesh speaks hindi, English, Spanish and German. It is disciple in Mysore Yoga Shala of the Guru Ji R. Sharat Jois . Officially practice secondary series (Nadi Shodhan) and (Chikitsa) series teaches elementary with the blessings of his guru. He also graduated with the title of Yoga Achary, master of Yoga Sivananda and is currently studying the 2nd course of physiotherapy at a University in Germany.

From Spain I organize and accompany the participants. My name is Montse Lominchar and direct the Center Yogasadhana, in Ciudad Real, for ten years. I am a yoga teacher and trainer of Unnata aerial yoga.

This is the program proposed by Yogesh, who know India well. We hope to be of your interest. Loved us!
