The Tour

Yoga, bound to the waters of India’s Holy rivers, energises the flow of life and cleanses the soul. Its discipline revitalises and opens the mind, bringing benefit to both physical and spiritual health. This inspiring tour, led by Donna Noble, is focused on these most Holy waters generating the forces to bring life back into balance.

After an exploration of Delhi take the express train north to fabled Rishikesh, so beloved of the Beatles. Here, on the banks of the fast running river, gain an insight into yoga and visit significant ashrams. Meander through the crowded streets filled with wandering sadhus and devout pilgrims. Watch the evening Arti ceremony in Haridwar.

Next, after an overnight sleeper journey to Varanasi, have an intense three days of yoga – with an optional excursion to Sarnath to explore the depths of Buddhism. Visit the bathing ghats to watch the timeless rituals and feel the deep bond between man and river.

No journey to India is complete without a visit to the outstanding Taj Mahal. Make a dawn visit to this beautiful monument and the majestic Agra Fort. Finally end the tour with further Delhi sightseeing.
