Spice | Spirit | Serenity

Kochi | Periyar | Allepy | Trivandrum
13 - 23 February 2019
11 Days | 10.5 Nights


Join Lisa Allwell on an amazing 11-day yogic journey to the Indian state of Kerala. Together we’ll explore the beautiful southern region of India, experiencing the culture, devotion, and grace of southern Indian life.

Our adventure will begin in the port city of Kochi where we will traverse quaint laneways, shop in local markets and explore colonial heritage sites. We will then travel to the Western mountain ghats, visiting the Periyar National Wildlife Park to spot wild elephants and perhaps even a tiger.

Next, we will spend two magical nights meandering through the backwaters of Kerala on luxury houseboats exploring the waterways and village life of Kerala. We continue our travels down the west coast and our final days will be spent on the cliffs overlooking palm-fringed beaches and the Arabian Sea staying in a renowned Ayurveda Resort. You’ll nurture yourself with one of the most ancient and holistic systems of health, exploring a blissful array of treatments. You’ll learn some cooking skills too, as we immerse ourselves in all that this land of spices has to offer.

Threaded throughout this tour will be a yoga & meditation program. Together we’ll explore an Indian approach to yoga, which is not just about physical movement but involves devotion, gratitude and a focus on gracefully navigating life.

Let’s dive into an experience of sacred India and be amazed, awakened, pampered and delighted. This will be the fourth year that Lisa has led Indian tours and she has chosen the best of what Mother India has to offer, for you to enjoy.
