“Thank you for diving us into the depths of Mother India and our own hearts. These have been the most transforming two weeks in our lives! We are happy and grateful for this pilgrimage and back home with a new perspective on life. Endless love from Germany, Sandra & Lotta Schrodel”

“Traveling to India with Away Inward Retreats was one of my best decisions ever.  It not only deepened my yoga practice in the birthplace of this ancient practice, but it also inspired me to pursue yoga teacher training upon returning home. They guided us – an intimate group of 10 pilgrims with diverse yoga experience – on an epic journey where our daily yoga transcended the mat. Her knowledge of the country, its people and traditions helped to weave our little group into the country’s fabric deeper than I anticipated – a huge bonus for people like me who thrive on experiential travel.”

“Traveling  with the guidance and love of Away Inward Retreats was a wonderful and joyous way to experience India's rich culture, sacred land, people, spiritual rituals, and even a bit of athleticism via the yoga and hiking treks!! For me, it was the perfect combination of embracing spirituality and my  love of travels. This trip to India has  proved to me things at home can be managed with 'Mom' for a few weeks!!! It has inspired me to look forward to  many other adventure trips with Ryan and Nianna and Away Inward.”

‘My trip to India on Nianna’s pilgrimage and retreat was a truly valuable experience incorporating a perfect balance of yoga immersion, cultural exploration and personal reflection, all in a beautiful and supportive environment. My time spent with Nianna in the birthplace of yoga took me on a personal journey, both challenging (physically and mentally-but a good amount!) and inspiring. It took me out of my comfort zone, taught me humility, grace and gratitude, gave me clarity and a sense of wholeness which is rare to tap into these days where hectic schedules seem to dominate everyday life. Nianna has an incredible amount of energy and enthusiasm and is a great teacher. I cannot recommend her enough to anyone that loves yoga and the joy that it brings. A truly memorable experience which taught me a great deal about myself and the power of Yoga.”
