"Looking back at it, it was definitely one of the most relaxing trips of my life. Shaz makes sure there is an open and laid back atmosphere amongst the group. As a yoga teacher, Shazia has a very gentle approach, which is motivating for all levels. In our group, we had beginners and advanced at the same time, but Shazia made sure everybody could have a work out adapted to their level. If you want to have a relaxing time, go on an adventure, and meet new people but not have everything planned from the beginning to the end, this is for sure your kind of tour."

"Nat is a kind and generous person. He is genuine in his desire to help people grow and realize their full potential through the practice of yoga, positive thinking, and a healthy lifestyle. I found that I learned about much more than yoga and Asia when I was with him. If you are lucky enough to go on this tour, be clear that it is not like other package tours operating in Asia. The tour coordinators are with you to help you evolve, to inspire you as your journey continues to unfold."
