A journey through the land of mystery & diversity
Experience the magic of North India as you join Taryn Weggelaar on this epic adventure.

Following over a year living in ashrams, running yoga teacher training courses and retreats, travelling around teaching yoga and meditation in this spiritual land, I have embraced the culture, befriended the local people and gained local knowledge to discover the hidden gems, iconic sacred sights, places to shop and the best places to stay for the ultimate authentic retreat!  I am excited to share this with others.

Treat yourself.  Take time to connect, heal and transform.  Experience the home of yoga, the essence of spirituality. 
Leave the real world behind to spend some time on you - you deserve it!

Including yoga classes, guided meditations, pranayama deep breathing techniques, education on Ayur Veda and the Kriyas (cleansing techniques) and yoga philosophy.  This adventurous journey combines 2 of the UNESCO World Heritage sites,  along with other sacred sights such as yogi caves and the original ashram where the Beatles first stayed and wrote their songs on 'the white album'.  With the most popular recreational and tourist activities and tours of each town, this retreat is focused on allowing time to experience the real India, connect and open your heart to the possibilities that lie within yourself and enjoy the diversity and culture of this mysterious land.  

​With plenty of activities included in the retreat, you will have an abundance of choices.  You may join all activities if you wish, or just a few. 
Follow your heart, day by day.  This is YOUR retreat and your journey through North India.

Whilst in my care here at Loka Yoga, you are my world.  I become your tour guide, your protectors, your healers, your teacher and your friend. 
I promise to deliver a high quality, luxurious and enjoyable retreat, which will be a divine experience and journey you will never forget!

The accommodation venues we will be staying in have been carefully chosen to ensure upmost comfort and enjoyment.  I believe this is critical when visiting India and spending time exploring - it is nice to have a safe, comfortable sanctuary to return to at the end of the day.   The accommodation rooms have all the comforts required for an enjoyable retreat.

With local knowledge from living in these places, local friends and an understanding of all the best things to see and do, there will be no shortage of activities to do and delicious cuisine to taste during your retreat.  I have created an exciting itinerary and all activities are included - you may wish to take time to do your own thing or simply relax and that is also absolutely perfect.  I cannot emphasise this enough; this is YOUR retreat and YOU make the choices!

We will start in Delhi on the afternoon of 29 September; launching in to our retreat with a grand tour the next day of the one and only Taj Mahal!  We will then make our way down to Rishikesh, where I will take you on a tour of the town, show you the best places to shop, eat and explore.  Together we will experience authentic Indian cooking classes, a tour of the Beatles ashram, waterfalls, a meditation in a sacred yogi cave, option to go white water rafting, the divine Ganga Aarti (evening fire ceremony on the Ganga river), free time to experience an Ayur Vedic massage, psychic readings and satsangs with spiritual leaders.  A train journey through the Himalayas and up to Amritsar with be an experience in itself!  Amritsar will greet us with the fun Wagah Border dance performance (at the border of Pakistan and India) and the breathtaking Golden Temple.  We will then make our way to Dharamshala, stay in a beautiful Tibetan hotel just down the road from His Holiness the Dalai Lama's temple.  Along with a tour of his tepmle and the Tibetan museum, Dharamshala is a gorgeous place nestled in the Himalayan mountains!  We will enjoy a hike up the Triund Mountain, time to explore the town and shops full of Indian and Tibetan treasures, instruments and spiritual jewelery and you will have time for various pampering treatments, sound healing sessions, guided meditations and more!  
We will conclude and check out of our hotel on the morning of 12 October 2019.
