Join us for a 10-day pilgrimage of the inner and outer landscapes of India!

This time we travel to Karnataka, the spiritual heartland of yoga. Sanskrit scholar Hareesh (Christopher Wallis), who first visited India more than 20 years ago, will be your guide to these sacred sites and their teachings, while yogi master teacher Esteban Salazar will enliven your body and senses with a daily yoga and meditation practice.

You can relax into your experience knowing everything is all taken care of. The price is all-inclusive (except flight and tips), and every detail is attended to with loving care. We stay in luxurious hotels with a traditional flair, because why skimp on what might be the greatest pilgrimage of your life?!

 An incredible ancient power center in northern Karṇātaka -- the cave-temples surrounding the lake feature one of the oldest Śiva Naṭarāja-s (Lord of the Dance) in the world.

About Karnataka

Perhaps more than any other region of India, Karṇātaka can claim to be yoga-bhūmi: the Land of Yoga. Those who are familiar with the history of modern postural yoga know that the forms now practiced worldwide were codified by T. Krishnamāchārya in the mid-1930s in Mysore, Karṇātaka. Yet our earliest certain evidence of the worship of Śiva, Lord of Yoga, is also from Karṇātaka — 1,800 years earlier. We also know that yoga flourished in Karṇātaka throughout the medieval period — using the word yoga in its traditional meaning of 'meditation' and 'disciplined psychophysical practice aimed at a spiritual goal', of course.
