India is a vibrant culture with so much for the senses to take in. Whether it be the wind of tuk tuks whizzing by on the road or the smell of Indian spices wafting from restaurants and local family homes, or the sound of a woman chopping open a fresh coconut for you to drink by the beach. Brightly colored sari’s adorn the local women and tiny winding streets with handmade shopping treasures entice you to explore. It is full to the brim of endless temples, shrines, churches, mosques, and bazaars devoted to spices, incense and freshly cut flowers. India is made for those with a curious spirit and a heart ready for adventure.
My time in India has brought me more than I ever imagined. When I first traveled to India, it seemed like a flurry of chaotic and scary experiences were ahead of me. Although it was challenging at first, I quickly fell in love with the easeful pace of life and beautiful hearts of each person I encountered. I particularly loved the tropical vibes in the rustic south on my second visit and got used to a strong beachfront yoga practice and eating mangos while barefoot. Then when I left, my heart ached for the beautiful simplicity of a culture so deep in gratitude with life that they can easily find contentment in any situation. My time in India has brought me a comfort and ease in navigating a culture that can seem overwhelming to some. My dream is to lead my people to this land and give them the rich experiences I have had without the unexpected challenges that can take place while navigating a 3rd world country on your own. I envision this journey to include yoga, Pilates, rest, sipping coconuts, receiving ayurvedic massages and opening your hearts to a grand adventure.
