Vrindavan Calling!’


Yoga Adventure & Retreat in Vrindavan!
Hatha Yoga Bhakti Yoga Gnana Yoga Karma Yoga
Are you interested?

Come and join my wife Bharti and me for a unique, meaningful, fun-filled, rejuvenating, and devotional experience in Mathura-Vrindavan, the birthplace and playground of Lord Krishna.

Lord Krishna is the Lord of Yoga and the supreme embodiment of love and devotion. Vrindavan is the most befitting and sacred place to learn yogic wisdom, and enliven one’s devotion by hearing Krishna’s playful and miraculous stories right where they happened.

This could also be a great opportunity to introduce yoga to your non-AOL family and friends in a fun and adventurous manner, which could be a stepping stone for them to step into the AOL to explore their spiritualty further.

What will we do in Vrindavan:
1. Hatha Yoga
Asanas twice daily. Learn how to do asanas properly and more effectively.
Learn a new technique (not named yet), inspired by the ‘Vrindavan Calling’. It has strengthening, energizing, cleansing, and calming effects on the body and mind, and I believe it can improve the functions of the involuntary muscles in the body. It will also make your asana practice more effective.
Daily practice of Pranayamas and Bandhas.
Different Meditations
 based on the wisdom of yoga

2. Bhakti and Gnana Yoga
Satsang with yogic wisdom, and devotional stories from Shrimad Bhagvatam
Visit birthplace of Krishna
Visit streets of Vrindavan where Krishna played with His friends, and played His flute.
Visit places associated with Krishna and His beloved Radha.
Visit ancient and new Temples

3. Karma Yoga:
We will identify some service projects with an intention to initiate them at a later date, in conjunction with the local Authorities, to make Vrindavan a cleaner and prettier city. It is one of the best ways to serve Krishna directly.
