American Veda Tours

Come walk in the footsteps of the gurus, swamis and yoga masters from India who transformed America, turning millions inward toward our deepest and truest selves. Pay homage to the leading figures of this spiritual revolution: Vivekananda, Yogananda, Sri Aurobindo, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Neem Karoli Baba, Swami Muktananda, Srila Prabhupada and others. Visit ashrams and temples and the streets these masters walked upon. Learn about their lives and teachings from our guides and those who preserve their legacies today. Internalize the great yogic teachings by practicing asana, pranayama, meditation and sacred chanting. Attend classes, satsangs and discourses led by local teachers. Experience the cities, citizens and countryside of India. Visit sacred sites and witness traditional rituals. Whatever path you are on, an American Veda Tour is a powerful opportunity for learning and personal transformation.

Plans are being made for the 2018 tour.
