Please join us in this once in a lifetime opportunity to practice Jivamukti Yoga with Yogeswari every morning on the upper deck of the newly renovated Heritage Boat "BENGAL GANGA." The boat will travel upstream from Kolkata (Calcutta) on the Holy River Ganga.
While being immersed in daily life and spiritual practices along the riverbanks, we will visit many sacred places, such as Kalna and Mayapur, birthplace of Sri Chaitanya, as well as the Bihar Yoga School in Munger.
