This training will take place in Rishikesh, India- the international capital of yoga.

India pulsates with a vibrating vitality…picture vibrant colors and scents, lush jungles, cheeky monkeys and gentle cows, the sounds of the river rushing by… To visit mother India whilst immersed in yogic practices is a dream. 

Set amidst the thick woods of Shivalik , on the Banks of River Huel and in the vicinity of the yoga Capital of India – Rishikesh, Nirvana River Resort is a natural paradise. 

Its is surrounded by lush green valleys and mountains, misty woods, and a rushing river and is situated just 25 kilometers away from the main city of Rishikesh. 

Each room is equipped with two twin beds, air-conditioning, bathroom, towels, bedding, Wifi.

LAAIC TT is a fully vegan training. We will live, eat and sleep in beautiful rooms that are interconnected which will create a community atmosphere while still holding space for privacy for each of us.

Please note: 

India is a developing country and can be challenging for Western visitors. Keep in mind we will be staying in a beautiful, natural setting. There will be insects outside and the weather will be hot while outdoors.  In regards to water usage- all water must be filtered prior to consumption. Cooked food is advised.
