Our intention is to help people experience the real India and stay safe and healthy at the same time. We travel in comfort in air conditioned buses and stay in nice hotels.
*None of the activities are mandatory. Personal schedules are honored.
More than ‘Tour Guides”
We don’t consider ourselves as ‘tour guides’ but rather your hosts who show you the real India from a personal perspective. The tour is also spiritually based with yoga and meditation. There is a focus on the ancient Temple town of Tiruvannamalai, and Arunachala, the holy mountain. However if a spouse wants to join and yoga is not their thing, that is perfectly fine. We will have plenty of scheduled free time for shopping and massages.
Daily Yoga Practice
Yoga is a very important part of our daily routine. Though not mandatory, the yoga helps to keep our bodies and hearts open. Corrine teaches Awareness yoga which is a very gentle core opening yoga that is appropriate for all levels. It helps to ground us in an intense and sometimes frenetic atmosphere of daily life in India. We visit less destinations and spend more time in each place. We get to know the locals and even shop for fresh fruit each day and visit the local markets. We have our favorite coconut lady and favorite chai shop for our afternoon tea. Less time on the bus and more time to sink into that palpable rhythm of India.
Each evening will be spent connecting by sharing about our days experiences. Beginning with yoga each day and ending with a group gathering helps to create a strong synergy within the group. It will also help us to to check in with each other to make sure physical and emotional health are intact. India is intense and can bring up emotions in people. The group energy will help us all process in a gentle way.
