NAMASTE! ~ नमस्ते
Yoga, Meditation, Trekking, and a Cultural Homestay
Located in the heart of the Indian Himalayas, Open Lotus is a yoga retreat that not only offers yoga and meditation services, but high-adventure trekking and camping expeditions. Professional teachers and guides from around the world will give you the best experience possible. We offer accommodations, meals, and a yoga shala—all with fantastic views of the Himalayan mountain ranges. We are based in Vashisht—a small village 3km northeast of bustling Manali. Vashisht is a small village that has a lot going on: natural hot springs, a jovial population of locals, diverse restaurants and shops, and winding walking paths that twist and turn throughout the valley to various landmarks like Jogini Waterfalls and other neighboring villages. We can accommodate individual travel needs or that of a large group.
Because we're located 3,000 meters above sea-level, it gets cold here in the winter! However, that won't stop us from helping you plan different tours and adventures throughout India. We not only offer yoga, meditation, and trekking adventures in our native state of Himachal Pradesh, we can help you plan your adventure around the entire sub-continent; wherever that may take you. Tours include northern regions like Ladakh and Spiti, or south to Delhi.
Whether you like yoga, meditation, adventure trekking, or a combination of all three, Open Lotus Yoga Retreat can provide you the best service and bring your travel desires to fruition. We look forward to serving your travel and adventure needs.
WHAT WE OFFER:
There is no better place to practice yoga than in the heart of the Indian Himalayas. Our team of professional yoga teachers will guide you through various exercises and techniques, regardless of skill level. Our newly built, spacious yoga studio offers the best environment to hone your yoga skills.
Whether you want to learn new breathing techniques such as the art of Pranayama, or want to receive an aurevadic massage, you will have plenty of options. The fresh mountain air is not only good for physical health, but will help rejuvenate your soul. We will set you on the right path to peace of mind.
TREKKING & CAMPING
We offer plenty of trekking and camping opportunities. Hike to nearby villages, take a trek to the holy site, Bhrigu Lake, 4,000 meters in the clouds, or take a short trek to Jogini Falls—a few kilometers north of the village. We offer yoga and meditation classes during our trekking expeditions.
