  • Review by Liz Russell from Amsterdam

    "My India trip with Noelle and Arjuna was a totally magical experience that will be engraved on my heart for a lifetime. Our senses were overwhelmed with so many amazing experiences - intense soul searching Satsang on the Ganges, spiritual Pujas and rituals, beautiful temples, audience with a delightful sahdu, visit to a mellow caring cow ashram, joyful kirtans and mantras, yoga under the blue skies with local primate spectators;and not forgetting the crazy wild water rafting and just so much more! We stayed in the Very Best Exotic hotels throughout our trip - from quirky charm in Delhi; embedded in the lush foothills of the Himalayas overlooking Rishikesh; welcoming cool marble floors and exotic wall silks in Varanasi; to the peace and tranquility of the ashram in Vrindavan (only disturbed by cheeky mindful monkeys). Even our overnight train journeys were an eccentric trip back to the 1950s orient."

  • Review by Michela Cortesi from Switzerland

    "The trip offers a look at the spirituality and meaning of life. The daily activities are designed to immerse the group into the true essence. Usually the days begin with yoga classes (held mostly outdoors) which really helped to get in touch with myself. Also we visited different temples where you have the chance to get into the meaning of ritual. For me it was a magical journey where my soul has been nourished every day. I recommend it wholeheartedly!"

  • Review by A traveler from Calgary, Canada

    "Most useful for my everyday life were the yoga sessions, awesome and well suited for a variety of levels, and the philosophy sessions. Meeting with the holy man, Siddartha’s father, and the mediation in the cave were wow! Also the sacred dip in the Ganga was very profound. The laughter experienced on the River Rafting excursion was a memory that will stay with me for a long time. Loved this unexpected therapy and floating in the river. Keep this in! Both guides were awesome!"

  • Review by Maria Hauck from Capetown, South Africa

    "As a beginner to yoga, and very new at yoga philosophy, I embarked on the trip with openness. It proved to be a powerful experience, with passionate guidance from Noelle and Arjuna. Witnessing so many rituals, participating in kirtan, visiting ancient temples and practicing yoga in sacred spaces. These activities facilitated the process that was happening inside me and Noelle and Arjuna were the perfect leaders to accompany us on this sacred journey. Transport, accommodation, food, activities etcetera. There really wasn’t much for us to have to think about and that allowed us to really engage with the process and not be distracted by logistics."
