Erica Kaufman, founder of Lila Yoga spends about 3 months each year in India. She teaches, learns, and organizes special opportunities for yoga teachers and practitioners to join her.
This experience of a lifetime is a spectacular immersion into traditional ashram living in Rishikesh-the sacred and spiritual birthplace of yoga. Each year Erica is thrilled and honored to teach Lila Yoga at the International Yoga Festival. Together we meet and support each other as we participate as a Lila Yoga group in the Festival and the Lila Yoga Journey into Inner Peace. Nuzzled in the foothills of the sacred Himalayan Mountains and on the banks of the Holy Ganges River, Parmarth Niketan Ashram will be our home for 10 spectacular days, as we join the transformational authentic ashram living experience (monkeys & all) and nightly sunset Aarti Ceremonies (with flowers, chants, and sacred flames) on the banks of the holy Ganges River.
- IYF features world renowned yoga masters from India and all over the world including. Participants can freely choose from a full array of classes starting as early as 4am (for those of you who are early birds) and continue until just before sunset. Classes range from asana practices, to pranayama, meditation methods, lectures, presentations, and much more.
- Lila Yoga Mindfulness Journey into Inner Peace is an opportunity to settle into the slower rhythm of life. To make time to quiet the body/mind/breath into the rejuvenating and calming inner realm of peace.
- Parmarth Niketan Ashram is a national treasure. These 10 days here are a powerful and profound way of reaffirming the good. In our daily life we can get so entangled in our minds, and conflicts can seem so real. When we come together to do our yoga practices here, we reinforce our unity and commonality.
- Excursion can include a visit to the ‘Beatles Ashram, a visit to one of the temples located high in the Himalaya Mountains
Dates: March 1-10 at Parmarth Niketan Ashram.
