Join us in India!

I’m giving my first 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 — March 1, 2012
Rishikesh • Varanasi • Agra

Lisa in Rishikesh
Recharge, renew, and rejuvenate, in one of the most spiritually charged places on Earth — Rishikesh. Study at the foot of the Himalayas, in a fully equipped yoga studio. Then voyage to Varanasi, one of the holiest places in India. Finally, visit Agra, to see the majestic Taj Mahal.

In Rishikesh
Within view of the Mother Ganges, we’ll enjoy a week of asana and pranayama with Lisa. All levels are welcome. Optional activities will include sunset aarthi (fire ceremony) and kirtan, discourses, hiking, and a day trip to Haridwar, where the Kumbh Mela is held.

In Varanasi
Varanasi is a pilgrim’s mecca and is considered an auspicious place to absolve one of past karmas, and for major life transitions. The rhythms of life are palpable, as many bring loved ones here for cremation near the sacred waters of the Ganges. Magical, colorful, and rich with cultural history, our memories of Varanasi will last a lifetime. Our guide will take us to Temples, Ghats, and on a leisurely boat trip.

In Agra
No trip to India would be complete without taking in Agra, on the river Yamuna, to see the Taj Mahal, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. If time permits, our guide will also take us on a tour of the Agra Fort, and a Shiva temple, both just minutes from the Taj.
