Location: Ladakh, India & Golden Triangle- Taj Mahal Agra, Jaipur, Delhi
Dates: June 28-July 7th, 2019 (extended stay add-on avialable starting June 25th o the Golden Triangle (Agra, Jaipur, Delhi)

Join Michele for a trip of a lifetime in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Ladakh, India.  Home to the Dalhi Lama's Summer Palace, and a pilgrimage place for yogis and Tibetan Buddhist practitioners.  This sacred center is located between the highest mountains in the world, the Himalayas in the South and the Karakoram in the North. 

The high elevation and this sacred ground will support our practice of Yoga Nidra, Gentle Yoga Asana, and Pranayama to support a deeper meditative state of being, clarity and illumination of our Subtle Bodies. 

The Retreat and lodging will be held at Nimmu House:  http://ladakh.nimmu-house.com/

Our guide in Ladakh, is a wonderful leader I met in 2014 when I was there with Robert Thurman.  His name is Jigmet, and he owns Mantra HImalya.  Read more about how he approaches trekking in the Himalayas and this sacred land he loves here:  jigmet-wangchuk.squarespace.com

Students can choose from Glamping in luxury tents with En-suite bathrooms, or guest house rooms.  Vegetarian meals will be included, and dietarty restrictions accommodated.  We will have outings with expert Ladakhie guides to nearby temples & monestaries such as Alchi, hiking, and also shopping excursions optional. 

Michele has chosen this time of year in India because it is the best for the Himalayas, but also there will be a Total Solar Eclipse the week of our retreat.  This will not be visible from Ladakh, but it will be felt and support our practice profoundly.  What you are practicing and committing to during an eclipse can be felt for at least 6 months if not much longer.
