ADD-ON ADVENTURES.

If you're travelling from afar, why not extend your stay and immerse yourself even deeper into the Indian history and culture. 

To extend your India trip, we have a new 'Creative Stone Carving & Crafts of Tamil Nadu Practical Taster'. This new course emerged from our connections to the history and culture of stone carving in Tamil Nadu. Our very own Saz Sampath spent 8 years studying at the University of Madras' Fine Arts Department in Mamallapuram and gained a first class degree in Traditional Indian Fine Arts. We take you there to sketch at the Five Rathas, an experimental training ground for stone carvers in the 17th century. If you're a beginner, our skilled carvers will teach you how use the tools to carve and finish a pendant, and advise you on a small sculpture and tools to take home. You will visit some traditional carvers, temples and be immersed in the local culture - and have a go at flower weaving, rangoli-making, and other traditional crafts which have remained the same for centuries. You will stay in a stunning resort with yoga and mindful practices before breakfast. For partners or those not feeling the creative juices flow, our tried and tested temple tour ensure you will see amazing sights, go shopping and relax by the beautiful swimming pool.
This is a 3 night add on but can be a bespoke trip for longer if you'd like to get a deeper understanding of your craft.

Accommodation was comfortable and the staff at Cherai Beach Resort were very helpful. The hotel chef produced outstanding cuisine for an appreciative audience Amanda's guidance through our yoga practice was inspiring and intuitive. Judy and Saz from Yoga United ensured that everything ran smoothly. The Indian people, their hospitality, their traditions and their beautiful country made this a truly memorable experience.
