Namaste friends and sangha,
The "New" 2015 dates for the India Program are now confirmed. I have been traveling and studying in India for many years and always enjoy sharing the sacred experience of taking groups to this land of devotion. It is such a rewarding experience that words cannot describe. The combination of ancient wisdom and the spirituality are immensely intoxicating and bring tremendous acceleration to the learning experience as well as to ones spiritual consciousness. Whether you are a student of Ayurveda or a practitioner of Yoga such a trip is transformative in so many ways. I have seen this happen year after year. I look forward to another great experience in India with those of you following the Yoga & Ayurveda traditions.
With love and gratitude,
Pre-Program Yogi Yatra
Jan 1st - 6th 2015
For those interested in a pre shakti-bhakti immersion before beginning the program can meet Mas Vidal and the sangha for this special gathering of yoga, chanting and spiritual purification. We will begin this sacred journey in Mumbai at the Chowpatty temple with Radhanath Swami and then spend several days at the very special Eco-Village. Many special guests will join us and we will also squeeze in visits to some other very special places along the way.

and spirit get fine tuned for the practices we will be doing in India

or have some credit from some other schools that Mas has been
associated with this will be very helpful.
