If bringing in the new decade with a 7-day celebration of creativity, sisterhood and Shakti sounds fun to you, I have great news for you:
Join me – and women from all over – in this one-of-a-kind festival this December, inside a 16th century medieval fort in the Thar Desert, Rajasthan, India. Dec 28, 2019 – Jan 4, 2020What is Utsava Maa?
An all-women festival in the Thar Desert, where women from all over join hands under the stars in a communal celebration of sisterhood & Shakti. In its third year now, the festival is designed to facilitate personal exploration, growth & creativity through a vibrant program of daily yoga, talks, workshops, ceremonies, documentaries, traditional and contemporary arts, warmed by nightly artistic performances, live music, dance, Puja & fire dancing ceremonies.⠀

So glad to be one of the Yoga teachers in this awesome lineup! Just sharing flyer space with all these wonderful women is such an honour 🌞 One of whom happens to be the no-intro-needed wonderful Elizabeth Gilbert and another is the unstoppable Urmi Basu, founder of the non-profit organization New Light where she works to save girls from sexual exploitation and to improve lives of the children of sex workers. Also on offer is Gilbert’s full-day workshop on unleashing creativity. Talk about a creative high!! 😁 If you haven’t read her latest book City of Girls yet, do yourself a favor and get on it asap! So many hilariously relatable female-bonding moments and just as many to stir the soul.
Shreejan Sita, Founder Utsava Maa & Director Shridev Yoga Institute
