What’s your dream destination to practice Yoga & Meditation??

…….Well for us, it’s up in the Himalayas! And so, this November we’re leading a Yoga Adventure+Retreat to McLeodganj (nestled high above Dharamshala), with awe-inspiring views of the snow-capped Himalayas, where you’ll be trekking in the clouds and visiting the Buddhist monasteries that are the home of the Dalai Lama!

Yogis, it’s time you joined us on a TOTAL YOGA Retreat!

We’re hosting a 4-Day, 3-Night Retreat in McLeodganj from Nov 26-29 that will immerse You into Yoga & Pranayam, Meditation, Yoga-Philosophy, Internal-Body-Cleansing Yoga Kriyas (Neti, Kunjal, Shankhaprakshalan, Trathak…), an unforgettable experience of Trekking in the Himalayas,  visiting the Monastries of mini-Tibet and lots of Dancing (Tango), Music, Singing and Celebrating!!

Why should You embark on a Total Yoga Retreat?

So you’ve been learning Yoga for a while now, and you would like to take your practice to the next level – where you learn Kriyas, and immerse yourself deeply into Yoga, Pranayam & Meditation. These are practices that once learned will help you throughout life.

And our Retreats are never restricted to just Yoga & Meditation. They embody the principle of Celebrating Life to the fullest  –  so we ensure that there are Dance sessions led by wonderful Teachers, Musical performances, Movie/Docu screenings and other Creative activities. Whilst you enjoy community time and bonding, you’ll also have lots of ‘me-time’ by yourself to de-clutter. And there’s always yummy food!

Then of course, there’s the need to getaway! So we’ve chosen McLeodganj – home to the Dalai Lama since 1959, and breathtakingly beautiful as an idyllic Himalayan township; while the trek up to Triund is one of the most lovely in all of Himachal Pradesh. We’ll be staying at the lovely Fortune Park Moksha (twin-sharing) at Strawberry Hills. The entire Tour is managed by Byond.Travel

KIDS: The Retreat is Kid-friendly and there will be alternate sessions happening for your kids whilst Yogis are engaged in Meditation. This is subject to a minimum of 6 kids – and definitely not very young children. Kindly mail us at director@total-yoga.org if you want to bring your kids.
