Journey To India

The Kundalini Yoga Collective and the London Kundalini Centre come together to guide a small group on a week-long yatra to north India.

This seven-day pilgrimage will take us to the sacred sites in Amritsar, Anandpur Sahib and Dharamsala. Along the way, we will experience the music and traditions of the Sikhs and meet with scholars and teachers. Also, we are grateful to have been invited to stay with locals in the Punjabi village of Adekali where we will practice yoga, meet with elders and also attend a Sikh wedding as official guests.

More than a tour, this Journey provides an opportunity to join the dots of the origins of the Kundalini Yoga practice. As always we aim to learn from and exchange with the people and teachers that we meet, so that we may come back with expanded hearts, calm minds and activated sense of selves
