Vasudhaiva Tours and Retreats invites you to take a break from your familiar contexts and the fixed ideas you hold about yourself and the world. We believe mindful travel creates opportunities for personal investigation and genuine intercultural exchange. With this in mind, we’ve structured our tours and retreats in India and Nepal to put you in direct contact with vibrant spiritual traditions, dedicated practitioners, incredible landscapes—and, hopefully, yourself!
WHO WE ARE
Vasudhaiva is owned and operated by Shannon Sati Chmelar (ka-mel-er). Sati is an Ashtanga yogini, massage therapist, and performance artist. Sati, along with other yogis, scholars, and guides, who join the Vasudhaiva Family on a temporary or continual basis, lead study immersions and spiritual retreats that balance cultural exposure with spiritual practice and contemplation.
As spiritual practices from around the world take root in the West, it becomes more important than ever to understand the cultures and environments that originated them. To go to the heart of a place is to let it into yours. On a tour with Vasudhaiva you do not simply see a country or region, you have the opportunity to make friends there, to relax into its ethos, to glimpse its inner-workings. Our tours balance guided excursions and cultural exposure with free time for personal reflection and wandering. Whether you are a seasoned traveler or leaving your country for the first time, our guides bring you on a one of a kind journey.
Our retreats provide immersion study in spiritual practices and wisdom traditions, primarily Ashtanga Yoga and Buddhism. Each retreat is led by experienced faculty who have dedicated their lives to the authentic practices they instruct. Set within a dynamic cultural landscape, you are invited to train your body, sharpen your mind, and awaken your heart in an engaging and reverent atmosphere.
