A Yogi’s Journey: An Exploration of Northern India with Carrington Jackson

Saturday, March 2nd – Wednesday, March 13th, 2019
With Carrington Jackson

Upon walking through the doors of India for the first time, Carrington realized that India isn’t just a country on a map or even a plot of land on the planet. It is in essence a higher intelligence… a divine entity in and of itself. Each city providing a specialized function to her existence. The rivers giving life as arteries and veins. The often burnt flavor to the air generated from the fire in her underbelly, giving both proof of life and death. And the people of India who serve as the cells of this celestial body, making all the intricacies of her existence alchemize in purpose.

She was initiated into India by the person who taught her what yoga, and ultimately spirit, was all about, Seane Corn. And now she’d like to offer the same opportunity to others.

Join Carrington on a journey through the birthplace of yoga to explore and understand India from the inside out. We’ll participate in lectures, observe prayer services, attend cultural events and build relationships that contribute to a deeper knowing of who we are, and can be, in the mindful life-giving practice of yoga. Daily practices will serve as both modes of healing and opportunities for processing and integration.

Of all the unknowns that traveling brings, one thing is certain… you will be forever changed.

During your stay in Rishikesh, we are offering 1 day passes to the world famous International Yoga Festival as an *optional/extra* activity!

The cost for a day pass is $100 US. Please let us know well in advance if you are interested so that we can purchase tickets before they sell out.

About Carrington

Over the last 20+ years, Carrington’s study and practice of yoga has been a diverse journey through Bikram, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Vinyasa, and everything in between. Carrington began teaching in 2010 and is E-RYT 500 certified. Her classes are a canvas of power, prayer, and presence, intertwined with messages of spirit, magic, and social responsibility. On a physical level, her teaching practice is about piecing together the individual parts of the body into the more powerful whole. On a soulful level, her passion both on and off the mat is in helping others find their voice and own their power through the many classes and workshops she teaches. On a collective level, the purpose of her teaching is to correlate yoga on and off the mat, ultimately paving the way from the I to the WE.

She travels with international yoga teacher Seane Corn as one of her assistants and serves as both faculty and Yoga In Action Coordinator for Off The Mat Into The World, regional leader for CTZNWELL and is a lululemon legacy ambassador. Having gratefully learned from many teachers over the years, a few teachers that have influenced her personal and teaching practices are Seane Corn, Marianne Williamson, Rev angel KYODO williams, Ainslie Macleod, Carolyn Myss and of course the greatest teacher of all, life.

Entry VISA

A valid passport and tourist visa are required for entry to India.

The India visa process can often be a confusing and lengthy process. We strongly suggest using a visa-processing service such as Travel Visa Pro, which can assist you in getting your visa in a fraction of the time for a nominal fee. If you prefer to do it on your own, please email us at contact@satyaretreats.com and we can provide you with further guidance.

Suggested Visa Processing service:
Travel Visa Pro: www.travelvisapro.com
Phone: 1-866-378-1722

During the visa process, you may be asked if you are traveling on a package tour. Your response to this question should be “No.” Although we are traveling together in India, your travel to India is not a package tour because your arrival in and departure from India are independent of Satya Retreats and not with the group. You may also have your own travel plans before or after the trip, and as such, your travel to India should be considered independent.

During the visa process they will ask for your address while in India. Provide them this address:

RADISSON BLU HOTEL NEW DELHI DWARKA

Plot No. 4, Sector 13 – Next to Metro Station,
Dwarka City Centre, Near IGI Airport – 110075
New Delhi – India
Tel: +91 11 3090 8000

Immunizations:

There are no required vaccinations for travel to India at this time. However, the CDC does offer recommendations/suggestions.
