Hi, I am Miko, currently living in India and Europe, developer of the Opportyounity Program and working as a certified yoga therapy instructor, specialising in healing meditation and mindful living. I have now been teaching yoga for 3 years and am grateful to accompany you on your individual travel experience into spiritual India and your inner self.
Today we live in one of the most beautiful times in the history of human kind. Our life expectancy is higher than ever before, we are overall better educated and we may be living in the most peaceful time in the existence of our species. Still issues like depression, anxiety and the feelings of loneliness are rapidly increasing. This is happening because we are living in an instant gratification culture and digital connection has replaced human connection.
Opportyounity Travels will be unfolding in Kerala, a state in India that I have now lived in for over a year. One of their tourism campaigns uses the slogan: “human by nature”, a claim which could not be more accurate. Connecting with the Indian culture, people, hinduism, yoga and ayurveda has opened my eyes in inexplicable ways. While I believe that it is possible to achieve a change in oneself without leaving your homeland, coming in contact with situations, people, and cultures, different to your usual surrounding, can immensely broaden your horizon and improve your overall wellbeing. Sometimes a change of place is what you need to distance yourself form your daily life and reboot your hard- and software.
This is the reason I decided to create a travel-program which reinforce the effects of such an experience and helps you find happiness around the world and within yourself. A journal will accompany you on this external and internal journey, with each day giving rise to a new topic regarding your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual growth. A combination of group yoga sessions and individual classes, self-help exercises and tools, cultural experiences, workshops, great Indian healers providing you with personal healing sessions and presentations will give you a well rounded experience, benefitting you even after the trip has ended.
