Experience India through your eyes and ears in this unique yoga of sound tour with Ann Dyer. Our sonic journey begins in the bustling city of Delhi where we will see sights, chant kirtan at a Hindu temple, and sing praises at the tomb of Sufi musical saint Hazrat Inayat Khan. Onto the wondrous Taj Mahal, followed by the Mughal city of Jaipur for a taste of courtly life, including riding camels, visiting forts and palaces, and musical offerings fit for royalty. Our tour culminates in the holy city of Varanasi where we will spend days witnessing all of life’s rituals along the legendary Ganges and evenings at the world-renowned Dhrupad Mela, featuring performances of India’s oldest musical form. Our final night ends on a festive note, falling on Shivaratri, India’s celebration of the God of Transformation himself, Shiva. Details and registration at International Yoga, click here.
