Aug 30, 2018 10:18PM
Immerse and cultivate a greater understanding of who you are and your yoga practice while traveling, touring, exploring in the rich culture of Southeast Asia. This journey will be led by local compassionate and adventuresome cultural guides, Mimi and Hawah. The trip will take place from December 28 to January 5.

Set amid these ancient and hallowed civilizations, this pilgrimage will reveal and inspire a deeper seat of knowledge, passion for life and connection with a curious like-minded, community. This new year’s journey will begin in Luang Prabang, a timeless town situated on the banks of the Mekong river. During the days here, the group will explore the UNESCO protected city center to appreciate its unspoiled Laotian-colonial fusion architecture and take in notable Buddhist temples. Pilgrims will spend time cruising up the mighty Mekong gazing upon the stunning scenery and taking a tour of the Pak Ou caves, filled with thousands of tiny Buddha statues. Downtime and yoga will be enjoyed at the charming hotel in the heart of the city, perfectly situated near the magnificent markets and Luang Prabang’s revered restaurants.

Then on to Siem Reap, in Cambodia, which will be home for an exploration of Angkor Wat, one of the world’s most important ancient monuments. The days have been skillfully designed to get the most out of the time here, with an eye for avoiding the crowds. Pilgrims on this journey will see all of the more well-known highlights of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as a few off-the-beaten-track treasures, where they will likely be the only visitors there.

Join along with fellow world travelers for a new year’s that will promise memories for a lifetime.
