Join us for a one-of-a-kind guided adventure to the source of the yoga and meditation tradition, to the magic of India!   Open to all experience levels, this guided yoga and meditation retreat is focused upon authentic travel as a yogi and creates a unique opportunity to see and experience India beyond the known.  This retreat is an exclusive journey with the masters and the mystics, discovering spiritual practices and techniques that will leave you feeling spiritually enriched, culturally informed and full of vibrant memories.

The Inspire to India Retreat is an exciting integration into the Vedic culture where we  explore the local area and spice markets in Delhi, witness ceremonies by the banks of the Ganges, visit temples in the holy village of Rishikesh and Himalayan foothills, meet with local swamis and masters, and enjoy delicious vegetarian cuisine.  With expert guides and travel professionals, we make the pilgrimage that humans have taken for thousands and thousands of years and retreat into the Himalayas to the spectacular Veda Life retreat estate for a once in a lifetime yoga wellness experience.

This journey of personal discovery  includes discovering a rich heritage of local arts, ancient mythology and sacred sights.  You’ll take classes with our highly regarded teachers, head out on private excursions to hidden yoga trails, learn traditional practices and even follow in the footsteps of the Beatles.  This is a rare opportunity to take your yoga and meditation practice to the next level which ultimately delivers an upgrade in happiness upon your return home. Come and explore, broaden your perspective, expand into your creative potential and be inspired to turn the lens of yoga onto the world around you.

KAREN BURNETT is known in Florida as a respected teacher’s teacher and leads her own 200-hr Teacher Training Program, 300-hr and Advanced Trainings, workshops and retreats. 

Karen has been practicing and inspiring others since 1996 and teaching yoga since 2003. She blends her over two decades of experience and leadership to create her own unique style that is accessible to all. Athletic, flowing, alignment based classes where she skillfully integrates the poetry of yoga philosophy, mindfulness and yoga asana to energetic music is her trademark.  

A former professional athlete’s trainer, TV fitness personality, yoga studio owner and entrepreneur, Karen’s diversity gives her the opportunity to have greater reach and support for the health and well-being of students in her community and beyond. One of her greatest joys is sharing her knowledge with teachers and students in her training programs and retreats so they can teach and practice wisely, sustainably, and mindfully.

FRANKIE ARATA is living a yogic lifestyle focused on health within body/mind.  His teachings are creations inspired by Ashtanga and Anuttara based trainings.  In 2012, yoga asanas helped Frankie in recovering from a knee injury, and he then set out to bring that same relief to others through yoga postures & breathing techniques.  His aim is to bridge the gap between the micro/macrocosm and combines his years of experience and studying with masters of Astrology to accomplish this.

Connecting his students to the pure consciousness within is something Frankie offers in each class, whether it be in an inspired flow or something that is slow…and restorative.  Years of countless hours of personal practice and study of the ancient texts of yoga and religion has made him a favorite to many.

Locally, in South Florida, he leads classes, yoga teacher trainings, and meditation workshops where Frankie is a teacher for those who have the ears to listen.

He teaches regularly throughout Palm Beach County, but also travels the United States and the world leading meditation retreats and meditation courses in corporate environments.
