Curating Yogic Journeys through magical India
"We have been to India 3 times with Uschi and Rakesh. We keep returning because this in an extraordinary adventure with our lovely and dear friends. Uschi and Rakesh lovingly attend to all the details, making India approachable and safe while offering its authenticity. They provide a safe container so that you can fall in love. Which is what we keep doing and why we keep returning. Don’t miss days in the village, lingering on the banks of the Ganges, Shree Cafe, or Rishikesh. Transformation and love is what this is all about." 
"India is one of the most magical, beautiful, and special places on Earth. It can also be very overwhelming and over stimulating. To really allow the beauty of India unfold before you, it's best to experience it with a guide who knows the customs, culture, and land. I have been working and traveling in India for the past 4 years now and every time I go, I rely on the services of LuckyLalita. Uschi and Rakesh go above and beyond the call of duty to make your Indian Pilgrimage the most abundant experience possible. They are so attentive before your arrival by coordinating flights, transportation to/from the airport, all documents you need to enter the country, and most importantly, what to bring. During you journey with them, everything you need and didn't know you needed they provide. I'd highly recommend LuckyLalita to any one planing on traveling or hosting a retreat to India."

"If you have the opportunity to attend one of Uschi's retreats, all I can say is go for it!  She is an incredibly talented woman, full of knowledge, wisdom and energy.  I've traveled to India with her three times and to Germany once.  Each time the event was well organized, well planned, exciting, interesting and safe.  Uschi's team, including her partner Rakesh, help you to feel guided every step of the way.  From the moment you sign up she is there to help with planning, flights, visas, etc.  She offers readings and other information to give your journey context and help you mentally prepare.  And she is also just fun to travel with!  As a yoga studio owner I can tell you that it is a big leap of faith to trust someone with your students, but with Uschi, it's so easy.  You can feel confident that your students will have the journey of a lifetime."
Varanasi Locals Rakesh & Uschi have been hosting trips throughout Northern India since 2011. Establishing their itineraries through personal experience exploring the region with friends, and expanding by hosting small, and then larger international Yoga groups, Uschi & Rakesh have grown their business into a supportive model for those who wish to experience the REAL INDIA. They present a multi layered experience which is safe, protected, but also engages on a deep level with culture, customs, spirituality, and sacred geography of the locations they visit.

Offering various itineraries and hosting services for journeys through Northern India, and grounded Yoga trainings, Rakesh & Uschi are available for a multitude of hosting and advising services for India travel.

Native to Varanasi, Rakesh grew up working with tourists and speaks fluent English, as well as some Italian, Spanish, German, and Japanese. Born into a traditional Brahmin family from a lineage of priests and Banarsi sari merchants,  Rakesh treats his hosting with the same honor he has learned the traditions of his rich culture. Rakesh arranges all the transport and daily movements of the LuckyLalita journeys, as well as being a protector and adviser throughout.

Uschi's life transitioned to India in 2008, and she has lived predominately in Varanasi ever since. Establishing a women's empowerment unit in the villages outside of Varanasi, she learned the customs and language of Varanasi so she could engage on a level very unique for a foreigner. Coming from the community of Ojai, California, USA, where she taught Yoga and coordinated Yoga events, she grew into wanting to share her passion for India with friends and an extended community. Inspired by her many years of studying the classical texts of Hinduism and Yoga with her teachers Dr. Ravi Ravindra, Kira Sloane, Patricia Sullivan, Dr. Sheleyah Courtney, and others, Uschi's sharings and discourse throughout the LuckyLalita journeys inspire guests to feel the teachings of India at a heart level. 20 years of working in the Yoga community have afforded Uschi the unique capacity to plan LuckyLalita journeys for the multi faceted needs of yoga studios & teachers from all over the world.
