Come join us for the trip of a lifetime! Our awe-inspiring 2023 India And Himalayan Yoga Pilgrimage Retreat is a journey that’s designed to rejuvenate you and your heart in a world re-emerging from the COVID pandemic. Adventuring to some of the most cultural, most beautiful, and most auspicious sacred sites of the Himalayas – as people have done in India for centuries – we will turn the world into our temple and life into a practice for 14 days of classical spiritual living meant to inspire you on your path like a beautiful sunrise shimmering over a Himalayan mountain peak.
On our 2023 India And Himalayan Yoga Pilgrimage Retreat, you will get to visit:
New Delhi – Take in the city and it’s spiritual attractions, including the B’hai Temple, the Laxmi Narayan Temple, and stay at the only Palace Hotel in Delhi for 5-star fun upon arrival at The Leela Palace
Rishikesh – Be part of the global Yoga community and take classes with Dr. Eden and some of the top Yoga teachers in the world at The International Yoga Festival (IYF), visit the Beatles’ ashram, bathe in a gorgeous waterfall, meditate in Sri Vashishta’s and Mauni Baba’s caves, and stay at Antalya and The Divine Ganga Cottage
Haridwar – Do Ganga aarti at the famous Har Ki Pauri Ghat, see Anandamayi Ma’s ashram, and make friends with elephants for the afternoon at Rajaji National Park
Nainital – Venture to Neem Karoli Baba’s ashram, explore the Tibetan market, meditate in a boat on Lake Nainital, and stay at the Naini Retreat
Agra – Behold the beauty of the Taj Mahal just after dawn, take pictures at one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and relax and stay at the gorgeous ITC Mughal Luxury Hotel
Vrindavan – Venture to Bhagavan Krishna’s birthplace and hometown, chant at the Hare Krishna International Headquarters and Temple Complex, meditate in a boat on the Yamuna river, and stay at the Nidhivan Sarovar Portico Hotel
As you can see from above, lodging for our 2023 India And Himalayan Yoga Pilgrimage Retreat will be at 4 and 5-star hotels and retreat centers. It will feature some of the nicest accommodations available in the respective areas, but please keep in mind that when we are high in the Himalayas in Nainital, just having hot running water and organic food makes it 4-star quality, as many places up there don’t even have that. So, please email us at Dr.EdenGoldman@gmail.com if you have any further questions about the lodging as we want you to know and understand the details before signing up. What’s more, we will also only be traveling in 1st class and luxury busses when possible in transit between locations and will have a professional local travel company coordinating our safe passage and the details.
All in all, The 2023 India And Himalayan Yoga Pilgrimage Retreat mixes the ancient spiritual romanticism of The Himalayas with the culture and timeless beauty of Northern India while providing for Western sensibilities and comfort – all within a framework of a Yoga and wellness lifestyle. The experience will have the power to transform your life and will be truly incredible!
We hope you can join us in India!!!

While our daily schedule will vary from day-to-day due to our travel and activities, every day will include a few opportunities to practice asana and participate in meditation, along with daily satsang. Moreover, all activities and spiritual excursions are optional and attendance is never required or mandatory, only suggested…as we’re not the Yoga police…but we’re going to be doing so many amazing things together that we simply hope you’ll participate in everything! Most of all, however, proper self-care and rest, when you need it, especially considering our travel plans, will be highly encouraged.
