Tiger Lily Yoga India Retreat Program

Join this retreat if you love yoga and Ayurveda or are interested in learning more, when you travel, you enjoy connecting with local communities in cultural exchange (instead of playing tourist), you are're looking to deepen your life skills and tools to live your best possible life, you have a desire to connect deeply with your inner self, you are working on making your life better and want a vacation where you also get to experience health and well-being, you feel overworked, tired, and need a deep restorative adventure, you are interested in deepening your spiritual practices, and if you get a little spark of yumminess in your belly or heart when you think about joining this retreat!

These things probably mean it's time to step outside of your daily grind and change things up! And be honest, a weekend just doesn't cut it. As humans bound by time and space, everyone needs to both release and restore to affect positive transformation in your lives. Though people want the weekend epiphany, humans just don't work like that; and sometimes people just need to get outta Dodge, breathe different air, eat different food, see a different scene.

Emily Iverson
Emily is a queer yoga witch, who studies and practices the traditional ways people have healed themselves over the course of human existence. Many of the traditional healing lineages, particularly in European traditions have been broken whereas India's traditions have remained in tact which is one of the reasons why yoga is accessible and why it's a great honor to study it. Emily incorporates the holistic practices of yoga, shamanism, and traditional magic into her classes.
