Early Morning Yoga
Begin your day, at sunrise, like thousands of others in the country with yoga, the discipline that first originated in ancient India. See how your postures and meditative abilities improve! This morning, we will also offer a great alternative for the disinclined yogi: Discover your dosha! In this session, you will learn about doshas, which are the three fundamental bodily humors.
Day in the Life
Help local women with a few of their daily activities. Walking through the village, you will experience shared communal responsibility, frugality in the face of limited resources, and sustainability defined by the renewable and functional use of resources. You are invited to accompany women in making chapatti in their homes, hauling water from the local well, and in feeding the animals.
Lunch and Jhapki
“Jhapki” is Hindi for “siesta.” In keeping with local tradition, we will take a short rest from the hot midday sun at Araveli Cottages and Tented Camp before returning to the day’s activities in the cooler afternoon hours.
Roll up your sleeves and start volunteering at the build site. There is a meaningful role for guests of all ages and abilities, as we help build a needed facility for the community – whether it is a school, latrine or a simple wall! You will be contributing to the project that the community needs most at that time.
Dinner and Dance Performance from Local Dance Troupe
End your day with a colorful performance that will showcase local folk dance traditions.
