Qi-Yo YTT, Module 1 + South Indian Art & Culture Trip: Tamil Nadu & Kerala

28 Sept to 13 Oct | INDIA

Educate and balance yourself with the power of Qi-Yo. Learn awareness, experience relaxation.

 

Chennai – Auroville – Pondicherry – Tiruvannamalai – Ooty – Kochi

With its awe-inspiring natural beauty, the Union Territory of Pondicherry is one of India’s most popular tourist destinations. An enticing blend of French architecture and authentic Indian charm makes Pondicherry truly worth visiting. Auroville, also known as the City of Dawn, is one of the must-visit attractions of Greater Pondicherry. Auroville means a universal town, where people can live peacefully, irrespective of nationality, color, caste or creed.

Ooty is situated amid the beautiful Nilgiri Hills of southern India. There is something about this area that draws tourists, adventure enthusiasts, and honeymooners like bees to nectar. Ooty will surprise and charm you in more ways than you expect.

Kerala is South India's most serenely beautiful state, its coastal strip defined by its layered landscape: almost 600 km of glorious Arabian Sea coast and beaches; a network of languid, glistening backwaters; and spice-and tea-covered hills. We will explore Kerala, a world away from the frenzy of the rest of India – its long, fascinating backstory illuminated by historically evocative cities like Kochi.
