Are you craving a deeper connection to yourself and your spirit? 

JOIN MONIQUE RIOFRIO AND I FOR A SACRED JOURNEY TO RISHIKESH, the birthplace of yoga

NOVEMBER 2nd-15th

*includes travel time

Rishikesh, a land known for it's vibrational healing energy, is my home and I cannot wait to share it with you!

 

Experience what it's like to fully immerse yourself in travel, meditation, yoga, wisdom, and community from all over the world.

 

This will be a transformational journey and if your heart is whispering "yes" you are ready

The first time I traveled to India in 2014, I had no idea how I would afford it, who was going to watch my kids and how I was going to make it happen. 

All I knew was that I had to go! And once I said YES

the universe aligned and magic happened. 

I have been back 8 times since then and it is my greatest joy to introduce others to this powerful land. 

This will be the 3rd time I am taking a group to India!

 

This retreat will SELL OUT - Reserve your spot with a $500 deposit!

Why Travel with Monique and Anjali?

Anjali has traveled to India 8 times in the last 6 years. She goes back to deepen her practice, heal, grow, learn and connect with her teacher and Sangha (community). She loves this land and the Sattva teachings and has dedicated her life to bringing  the teachings to those who are ready to awaken to the truth of who they are...

 Monique took Anjali's 200 hour YTT in 2015 and her 300 hour in 2018. She traveled to India in 2019 and fell in love with the culture. She will be meeting the group in India as she will be at a training there with her husband prior to the trip.
