The guest house has seven rooms and two living/relaxing areas. There are three bathrooms and one en suite, with both western and Indian toilets provided. The house is a short walk to the lively bazaar and has a great roof top where participants can relax and enjoy the daily life of Pushkar.

Participants will meet at the airport in Delhi up to two days before the official starting date, and the group will travel to Pushkar together.

Day 1 is an early start where the group will travel by either the train or private taxi to Pushkar, arriving at around 14:30. Day 2 is a rest day and participants will be given time to familiarize themselves with Pushkar, to settle into the accommodation and to recover from the journey. The seven-day yoga course will commence on Day 3. Finally on Day 10, it is a rest and concluding day of the program.

  • Maryann Lees

    Maryann began her dedicated practice of yoga more than nineteen years ago, firstly in Barraba and then ended up at the Sydney Yoga Centre. Mentored by Eve Grzybowski, who was for many years a senior teacher of Iyengar yoga, Maryann was one of three graduates honored with the invitation to teach at the school upon completing her teaching certificate. She led her first class in 1999. From this time, she has built her own successful practice and strong following of students.

Pushkar is a holy city devoted to the Hindu God Brahma. It is a small tourist town surrounding a small lake which the Hindus consider Holy and come to bathe in. Pushkar is only a short bus ride from the city of Ajmer, but seems a world away with only small roads with limited traffic and surrounded by desert. It is a great place to walk around, to wander amongst street vendors selling trinkets, watch langur monkeys running from roof to roof, and cows peacefully eating trash along the sides of the roads. A favorite tourist spot in Pushkar to relax is by the Pushkar Lake. There are temples surrounding the lake, each with concrete steps leading down into the lake. The lake is alive with large fish and the area looks like a small Varanasi. Pushkar is a great place to take camel or horse safaris out into the surrounding desert. There is also a camel fair in November.

All meals provided are vegetarian. Pushkar is a vegetarian and strictly no alcohol town. Though participants may choose to take meals in the bazaar or restaurants, we will have our own cook preparing delicious local-style meals from a set menu. Having our own cook allows us to vary meals if necessary, and also lessens the chance of illness arising from food, which is a common occurrence for foreigners in India.

  • A few things not to be missed in Pushkar:
  • Bednath
  • Take a camel ride at sunset
  • Visit Ajmer city
  • Visit the Brahma temple
  • Walk up to the Sarvatree temple
  • Watch the sun set over the lake
  • 1 additional day of meals and accommodation for any onward journey
  • 9 nights accommodation
  • Daily meals
  • Full yoga program
  • Transfer from Delhi to Pushkar
  • Travel from Pushkar is not included in the price as each participant's plans from Pushkar may differ.

    "I have been practicing yoga for a number of years and have been a student of yoga teacher, Maryann Lees. Maryann is both professional and enjoyable as a yoga teacher and is by far the best I have come across. Forever conscious of each students history, injuries and limitations, Maryann provides maximum benefit to everyone on an individual basis. I thoroughly recommend her to anyone."
