Wellness Retreat

Wellness Retreat This is regarding a very special residential Wellness Retreat to be held at Ahmedabad, India. First of all let me tell you how this idea came up. Over a period of last 30 years, we have been teaching yoga, healing and martial arts, and have been getting students from abroad to learn one or all of these disciplines or explore indian culture and spirituality. In most cases someone from their own country recommended my name, they wrote to me, they came and stayed here, attended our training sessions, we had a lot of personal interaction and at the end found themselves transformed. They wrote: ‘Life changing!’, ‘Wonderful experience!’ These exclamations gave us strength and a direction to think: So far we have trained the people from overseas as and when they came. Now, why not invite them to a special course designed specially for them? Thus born the course …

Ahmedabad, as the name suggest was established by the king Ahmedshah. As the story goes; once the king was on a hunting trip in this region, the king’s dog chased a rabbit. All of a sudden the rabbit turned around and faced the dog squarely. And poor dog had to retreat! Seeing this bravery the king thought: if I establish a city here, my people will also be brave like the rabbit! Thus born Ahmedabad…

Now, Ahmedabad is a perfect blend of old and new. It has castles, centuries old heritage homes, Temples, the Ashram where Mahatma Gandhi lived. Recently Ahmedabad has been given the status of a mega city; having a domestic as well as an international air port (with direct flights from New York and London), Mega malls, multiplexes and presence of multinationals. It is also a business hub as well as an educational hub of the region, with country’s premier educational institutions.
