Welcome to your Spirituality Immersion Yoga Retreat amidst the powerful Himalayan mountains and holy Ganges river of Rishikesh, India! Immerse yourself in a 7 day spiritual pilgrimage, set amidst the powerful peaks of the Himalayan Mountains. Rishikesh is the Yoga capital of the world and the gateway to the Holy Ganges. There truly is no better setting for a week of Ayurvedic healing. Our spiritual journey began the moment we did. As we get older and experience more of life, it’s not uncommon for some of us to become detached from our spirituality.

In just 7 days, we will experience a deep emotional and physical healing, and support one another back onto our true spiritual path. Take a deep dive into the ancient practices of Ayurveda with lessons from an Ayurvedic doctor, taught within a traditional ashram. Discover a range of yoga practices, which, combined with the transformational Happy Jack Yoga system, will help you to tune into your mind and body, and understand the power that can be harnessed when you connect the two.
