STOP PRESS: Manchester-based classical yoga teacher Jane Craggs has organised a 10 day yoga adventure in India from 13-27 October 2012. The Holy Himalayas Yoga Adventure will take place at Dunagiri, a retreat in the remote state of Uttarakhand which was mentioned in the classic book Autobiography of a Yogi – to this day renunciates can be found living in the caves around the retreat. As well as twice daily yoga and meditation with Jane, you’ll be able to visit local holy sites, meet local yogis and learn more about the local people and their culture. The trip coincides with the festival of Navaratri, aka the nine nights of the Goddess, and you’ll be served three satvic vegetarian meals a day. The Queen of Retreats did a yoga retreat with Jane in India back in 2005 and found her laid back, calm, down to earth and refreshingly committed to meditation, chanting and yogic philosophy as well as classical yoga asanas. From £1250 per person excluding flights to Delhi.
