Delightful and unexpected. This is not your ashram experience of yoga. This is far more personal, more grounding. This is an opportunity to engage my mind and body in the familiar depths of my yoga practice and then come out into the world and live it more consciously. Few modern conveniences beyond the shower ad bath. Niru is always warm, smiling and ready with a delicious meal. It’s hard to believe that it was all cooked with a wood fire over a clay stove. Perfect. Her husband, Rajan, led hikes pointing out many wild plants and their healing uses through new and magical terrain. While easy, it was not youaverage walk in the park. I’m looking forward to my next homestay. I’ll be back.
