  • Yoga journeys include a spiritual trek to India

    Yoga journeys include a spiritual trek to India
    For fans of yoga, following that practice while being immersed in a foreign culture can be a double travel bonus. Perillo Tours offers Learning Journeys, which include Nomadic Yoga Journeys in locations such as Costa Rica, Vietnam, India and Greece. With its ties to ancient spiritual practices, India is a natural for a trip like this. Much of the tour is devoted to exploring Rishikesh, often called the Yoga Capital of the World and the home to an ashram visited by the Beatles in the late '60s. Here visitors will work with a yoga guru and also on their own. There also is more interaction with locals, including a trip to Parmarth Niketan Ashram to watch a ceremony featuring the prayer of river Ganges, called "Ganga Aarti." The 12-day/11-night tour is priced from $2,325 per person double occupancy, with international airfare extra. Information on this tour and other Nomadic Yoga Journeys is at tinyurl.com/pvoyfd9.
