Travel to India combining its quintessential sacred and historical sites of the north with an opportunity to relax, restore and reflect at a yoga resort at the Indian Ocean on the south coast. A perfect entree to the spiritual nature of India, begin your journey on the sublime beaches of Goa for a week at Ashiyana Retreat Center, located on the Mandrem River just footsteps to the ocean. This charming eco-retreat center was distinguished by Yoga Journal as a top-10 yoga retreat destination. Enjoy deep yoga practices in a beautiful yoga shala with time to relax on the beach, adventure into town and the local market, and have a massage or spa treatment. Newly transformed and visibly glowing you are then ready for a week of travel adventures to the north in India's Golden Triangle. We visit the most treasured sights of Delhi, the Taj Mahal and Varanasi, the revered pilgrimage city on the Ganges where Hindus go to worship, bath and bury their kin to be close to Shiva.
