"The HERIZEN™ Yoga for Women South India - The Way of Ayurveda nature experience was transformational for me. Valma deftly guided us through this magical land of The Jungle Book with its wide white sand beaches, lush forests, elephants and sumptuous cuisine. Meeting the challenge of a pre-dawn hike up a sacred mountain to witness a stunning sunrise at a shrine to Hanuman was a huge confidence booster and the three soulful and relaxing days at an Ayurvedic spa probably worked out every bit of tension my mind/body ever held. This unforgettable journey into the exotic is a MUST for any spiritual seeker." Mary Burruss, E-RYT 500, Richmond, VA, USA

PS - "Visiting India was a priceless part of earning my 300 / 500 hour Yoga teacher training with HERIZEN™ Yoga for Women and Valma Shakti. I wouldn’t do it any other way!"
