Lotus Icon

Join MVP CEO, Michelle Young, and Siva in India as they travel south through Karnataka, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu. This spiritual pilgrimage will be the cultural experience of a lifetime. Siva is curating the trip to include cultural performances, temple tours, textile tours, and so much more. We’ll be traveling south for a month, moving through three different states, and immersing ourselves in the culture while we connect to our sadhana in a new and powerful way.

Participants’ room and board, three meals daily, transportation to and from excursions, and excursion fees are included in the price of the retreat. Supplemental meals, snacks, souvenirs, and airfare are not included in the price of the retreat.

Transportation

Transportation will be provided from the airport to your accommodation and from your accommodation back to the airport at the end of the retreat. Airfare is not included in the price of the retreat.

Location/Lodging

We will be traveling south through three Indian states, and therefore will stay in many different accommodations. As we get closer to the retreat we will share specific accommodations with the group and if there are options for upgrades we will inform the group. 

We will do our best to accommodate meal preferences and allergies, but we will be traveling through India and we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate life-threatening allergies. We will also be eating vegan food primarily. If you need to supplement your diet with protein please plan accordingly. 

COVID Protocol

MVP will follow all local guidelines regarding masks when in public places, and participants are expected to adhere to these guidelines during their stay. Social distancing will be enforced whenever possible, and hand sanitizer will be readily available.

*Please keep in mind these requirements may change between now and April 2023. MVP’s Yoga Retreat India 2023 is scheduled and confirmed to take place as of April 1, 2022. Should travel be prohibited to the region due to COVID, participants would have the option of rolling their paid spot forward to a rescheduled date or they could request a refund minus deposit.
