If, like me, you’re looking to improve your fitness levels this year or are keen to start or continue a yoga practice, Sacred Earth Journeys has journeys and retreats planned for 2014 to help you with your quest. Our tour and retreat leaders are experts in their fields and can offer you so much whether you are completely new to yoga and just want to give it a go or you are an experienced yoga teacher looking to take your practice to the next level. Our tours and retreats are very holistic in nature so you are getting the chance to spend time with inspiring leaders and experience new cultures, sites, foods, spiritual traditions, fauna, and so much more.
Here is a snapshot of the retreats and journeys that will interest you if you’re looking for a getaway this year that involves yoga and meditation.
Jeffrey Armstrong is a truly inspiring and inspirational leader. A 40-year practitioner of yoga, he is also an author, philosopher, accomplished public speaker, and scholar of the Vedas. With Sandi Graham he co-founded VASA – the Vedic Academy of Sciences & Arts. Journeying to India with Jeffrey and Sandi will most certainly be a life-enhancing voyage. Highlights of this incredible journey include temple visits (not those on the usual tourist trails!), participation in the International Yoga Festival, a cycle rickshaw ride around the 300-year-old Chandni Chowk market, a sunset tongo horse and carriage ride to the magnificient Taj Mahal, an elephant ride to the Amber Fort in Jaipur, and the list goes on!

A springtime retreat on divine Kauai, Hawaii; daily yoga and meditation practice and healing words of wisdom from the fabulous Dr. Alexina Mehta, ND; the most delicious food prepared by chef and holistic nutritionist Celina Archambault; visits to the magnificent Hanakapi’ai Falls, Kauai’s Hindu Monastery, the Kadavul Hindu Temple, opportunities for kayaking, snorkelling, hiking, and so much more. This retreat will be truly unforgettable.
In the words of a past participant:
“To say my Kauai retreat was life changing sounds melodramatic but I don’t know how else to explain the impact that the sacred island and the sacred journey had on me. I’m so grateful for the wise, gentle, powerful and respectful guidance of Alexina… many years my junior but many life-times my elder, both at the same time.” ~Judy Dickens, Aurora, Ontario
