Yoga Retreat in the Himalayas with Juhi Prasad 7 Nights from € 4'100 (13th - 20th of November 2016)
This enchanting yoga retreat is a unique opportunity to re-connect with yourself while nestled in the lap of luxury in the foothills of the sacred Himalayan mountains in northern India.
The Himalayas are considered the home of the ancient sages of India, where the practice of yoga originated, making it a spiritual and magical setting to deepen or commence your own yoga practice. Ananda in the Himalayas is an exclusive spa and resort located in the mountains over 100 acres on the grounds of a maharaja’s palace, overlooking the Ganges river. Juhi Prasad, your dedicated yoga and meditation instructor, will guide you through a daily hatha yoga practice that will strengthen your body, calm your mind and lift your spirit. Juhi took up the practice of yoga 15 years ago to help manage the stress of her fast-paced global investment banking career, and followed her passion for yoga full-time by setting up her yoga studio in Goa seven years ago as a certified Sivananda Yoga instructor. During the course of the Retreat, both through her yoga sessions and informal interactions, Juhi will share her experiences and insights drawn from her own quest for increased self-awareness.
The retreat will run for 7 nights from November 13th to 20th, 2016, with 6 days of spa treatments and yoga sessions. All yoga sessions will be group sessions. However, personalised attention will be given to each person, and the practice can be modified to suit individual needs. Yoga mats will be provided.
