India: Tap Into Your Inner Peace
Most of us can barely get five minutes to breathe, let alone find an uninterrupted stretch of time to sit, meditate, and reflect. Yet that’s exactly what you’ll get when you attend a two- to four-week program at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala. The course was designed by generations of swamis to help you develop positive thinking, deep relaxation, and “inner peace” through the practice of ancient yogic techniques for balanced living. While your days here are structured (you’ll be waking predawn to mediate, do yoga, and learn devotional practices), the experience promises to liberate you spiritually.
