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

What shall I bring?
Yoga mat and/ or sheepskin.
Light shawls for the day, blankets for practice at night.
Jumpers and jackets for the night
In the temples, it is expected to cover your head and to dress modestly.
You may also have to cover your head.
What shall I wear to the wedding?
Don’t worry about buying a new outfit if you’d rather now. Just bring a smart outfit you already own. eg
A dress with sleeves, or jacket/cardi over if you’re a woman plus a scarf to cover your head
A long shirt and trousers if you’re a man – you will also have to cover your head
Avoid really dark colours!
This an interesting video which may help as general guidance.
When do we get back to Dehli?
We will return to Dehli from Adekali by 10.00 PM on 28th February.
We can arrange to drop you off at your hotel or at the airport.
I've changed my mind, can I get a refund?
We’re sorry but we don’t give refunds. It would be pretty tricky to run an event if we had to make reimbursement. And anyway, we really really want YOU there, so please come and don’t change your mind.
