THE YOGA RETREAT THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE
An amazing 10 day journey for the spirit, body and mind at the "Land of high passes"
High up in the shadow of the world's highest peaks is a land of mythical beauty. It is a land that is arid and harsh, but it is also a land that is one of the most beautiful on Earth. It is a land of warm and friendly people with a cultural heritage that is nothing short of amazing. Ladakh, exquisitely lovely and relatively unspoilt, beckons you to discover her unchartered territory.
Led by Vikram Maira and Radhika Vachani, this retreat is an inner and outer adventure, a life-transforming experience of self-discovery and personal growth.
The retreat will take you on hikes and sightseeing through some of the most vivid and breathtakingly beautiful terrain, and also visit old monasteries, local markets and much more.
Immerse yourself for 10 days and nights in ancient yoga teachings, practices, and outdoor adventure, and begin a journey of self-discovery that leaves you feeling the most ALIVE you have felt in years. And the beauty of Ladakh will make it easy for you to let go and surrender to the peaceful pace of life this week.

Vegetables such as pumpkins, potatoes, beans and beetroots are cooked in different ways. Thukpa and Skyu (made of wheat flour), khambir (local bread) and Pava (made of sattu) are the staple food of the people of Ladakh.

Nothing quite prepares the traveler for the completely ethereal yet harsh beauty of Ladakh. Ladakh is often called 'Little Tibet' and because it lies north of the Himalaya's, it receives little rainfall. The landscape is dramatic with large Tibetan Buddhist monasteries, villages formed by flat-topped mud-brick houses, snow-capped mountains and grand vastness.
Ladakh means "land of high passes", and is a region in the Indian Administered Jammu and Kashmir that currently extends from the Kuen Lunmountain range to the main Great Himalayas to the south, inhabited by people Indo –Aryan and Tibetan descent. It is one of the most sparsely populated regions in Jammu and Kashmir and its culture and history are closely related to that of Tibet. Rock carvings found in many parts of Ladakh indicate that the area has been inhabited from Neolithic times.
