Flights: Right now you can still find direct flights from RDU - LAX for less than $300! Check out for the best deals. Travel insurance for your trip is always recommended.

Arrival: You can check into our Airbnb anytime after 4pm. I suggest hopping in a LA cab at a taxi stand from the airport or arranging an Uber or Lyft if that is your style. Try to arrive in time for our welcome dinner at 8pm.

Departure: You must check-out of our Airbnb by 10am. I suggest arranging a LA cab, Uber or Lyft to return to the airport or continue on with your travels. 

Food: The kitchen will be stocked with breakfast fare as well as snacks that will meet everyone's dietary needs so that you can prepare your own breakfast as you like and snack as hungry. Since we will be taking field trips every day we will explore the bounty of LA's plant-based food culture + eat out for lunch and some dinners in the flow. 

Schedule: Our schedule will vary day to day depending on the best time to visit our sacred sites. We will experience one yoga practice per day as well as one field trip per day. A more detailed schedule will be given on arrival to leave space for the always abundant happenings that take place around the city. Our field trips will take us from the west side to the east side of LA and will include one longer day excursion to either Encinitas in the South or Ojai in the North. Some potential places we will visit include Yogananda's Self Realization Fellowship, The Vedanta Society, The International Society for Krishna Consciousness, Krishnamurti Education Center, Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center, MA Center LA + More!!

Recreation: Hiking opportunities are abundant throughout LA. As our schedule allows we will find some time to hike to take in the city's expansive vistas. There is also an abundance of body work available in LA and resources on where and how to schedule will be provided. We will also find time to visit the beach to chill and integrate all of the wisdom and perspective we are gleaning.
