Yoga Vacations

Coming Up!

Due to Covid 19, there will be no more retreats being offered in 2020 and possibly 2021. Please check back for more updates.


Feb 28 – Mar 1, 2020

$525 – based on double occupancy
$725 for single occupancy

Relax, Renew and soak up the splendour of nature on this weekend yoga retreat. With the backdrop of picturesque Jasper, you will be invited to find your own inner practice through awareness of body, breath and mind. Taking time to both turn inwards for reflection and outwards for kinship, plan to travel down the path to wholeness together. Over the years, our retreats have filled up very quickly, so don’t be disappointed and reserve your spot today!

We will be staying at the newly renovated Crimson hotel in the heart of Jasper and easy walking distance to Bear’s Paw Bakery who, in our opinion, has the BEST coffee in the world.

We will have morning and evening yoga sessions along with guided meditations and a Saturday evening Crystal Bowl sound bath. Daily breakfast, a Friday evening soiree after our yoga and a Saturday evening group dinner is all included so you don’t have to worry about anything.

A super fun weekend to connect to nature, yourself and other like minded souls.

Join Michelle and Kushok for a trip of a lifetime! 

Find your own way to Delhi for January 17th, where the adventure begins!!! Here is where we will spend a few days to allow for the jet lag and culture shock to pass; and where the retreat officially starts with a group welcome dinner that evening. The next day in addition to the morning yoga and meditation practice, we will explore Delhi with our guide and see some of the neat places that make this city so beloved.

On Saturday, January 19th, after yoga, meditation and breakfast, we will take a train from Delhi to Agra for a day trip. Once we arrive, we shall tour the iconic Taj Mahal and then have some free time to further explore Agra. We will meet back at the train station to take the train back to Delhi before nightfall. (A group picture in front of the Taj Mahal is also on the agenda.)

On Sunday, January 20th, we will fly to Both Gaya. Kushok has a special connection to Both Gaya, as this is where the Buddha became enlightened under the Buddha Tree. Kushok will guide us through this amazing place on the 21st of January, after we enjoy our morning yoga and meditation practice. We will also have some time to explore on our own and/or shop.

On Tuesday, January 22nd, we are going to take a bus to Varanasi, a very spiritual city on the banks of the Ganges river. Here we will enjoy 4 nights to allow for lots of time to tour temples, visit the ghats, experience some ceremonies and explore on our own to really get a feel of what this beautiful and spiritual city can offer. Yoga and meditation will be offered every morning.

On Saturday, January 26th, we will fly back to Delhi, where we will enjoy our farewell dinner as we reminisce about this experience and share our thoughts on what we loved the most. This is also an opportunity to enjoy some free time in Delhi as we hope to get back early enough for you to do so.

On Sunday, January 27th, Michelle and Kushok fly back to Canada. You are welcome to continue your journey in India or wherever your heart may take you or you can plan to fly back with us.

We only have 10 spots available for this retreat as we both wanted a more intimate group and smaller groups can travel through India a bit easier. We are unable to hold spots, so please send your deposits in as soon as you know you can come.

What’s not included:

  • Flights to and from India (use airmails, points or find the flights that work best for your budget. We only ask that you arrive in Delhi by the 17th of January)
  • Most meals
  • All snack
  • Beverages (bottled water)
  • Activities listed outside of the ones listed above
