This tour and yoga retreat, co-designed by Edwin Bryant and Govinda Andriollo, will focus on perhaps the most delightful stories in all of Indian mythology, the legend of Krishna from the Srimad Bhagavatam. Vrindavan/ Mathura is the village where Krishna was born and enjoyed his childhood.
Before the tour begins, Allison will set the stage with three days of yoga and mythology, awakening a sense of wonder and bhakti. Allison will offer a daily yoga class and nightly kirtan throughout the ten-days.
Highlights of the tour include visits to some epic temples along with Govardhan Hill, a boat ride on the Yamuna River and an excursion to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal.

Vrindavan is Krishna’s childhood home.
This ten day retreat and tour focuses on key historical temples and sites related to Krisna’s life.
The first three days of the retreat Allison will tell stories from the Srimad Bhagavatam, lead daily yoga classes, and offer nightly kirtan sessions. These first few days are designed to help everyone settle into India and create some context for the upcoming tour. Whether you’ve heard the stories of Srimad Bhagavatam hundreds of times or it’s all new to you, Allison will lay a magical mythical foundation from which you can move deeper into your heart center. Enlivening your connection to Reality, God, or the Universe is the goal. Yoga classes will be designed with brand new beginners and long time yoga students in mind.
Days four to ten, we will visit the sites of Vrindavan that we’ve learned about in the myths of Krisna. Edwin Bryant and Govinda Andriollo designed this tour together, and Govinda will be our guide, sharing with us his extensive knowledge of the region and its treasures. Highlights of the tour include visits to some epic temples along with Govardhan Hill, a boat ride on the Yamuna River and an excursion to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal.
The details of this seven day Classic Vrindavan tour can be viewed on Govinda’s website, https://vrajyogatours.com/, along with information about the premium accommodations package we will be working with. We will not be adding on the additional three-day Jaipur tour. During the tour week Allison will continue to host nightly Kirtan sessions as well as morning yoga classes.
