    Kristie loves to travel and wishes for nothing more than to share this passion with everyone. Her life has shifted in the last years as she has begun offering her experiences as a part time explorer and full-time yoga teacher, mystical dance teacher, Reiki Master, retreat facilitator, and trip leader or creator. Her focus in this life is inspiring aliveness, opening to a life lived from the heart, empowerment, and the activation of a cosmic consciousness.

Our journeys always include happy healthy foods that make our bodies and minds feel great. We will be eating mostly vegetarian, with options to include fish, and sometimes also having an option to include some meat if you like. The meals will support the activities of the journey and will be a nutritious mix of local cuisine with some western favorites. Oftentimes we will eat family style where we share many dishes and get the opportunity to sample many things, and other times you may just choose from a set menu. There will always be plenty of food to sample and you will definitely like something being offered.

    "I had an amazing time. Kristie is knowledge, wise, caring, and a loving soul. She made my two weeks special and i was so lucky to have chosen the right group. The journey was a adventure as India offers plenty of that and a soul spiritual search. Both have been fulfilled in every possible way. If I can I will join them again one day, maybe Peru. Amazing people amazing place wonderful journey through the madness of India."

    "The care and attention to detail provided from the time I booked my trip to throughout the journey is unprecedented. Kristie led our group with an open heart, flexibility, mindfulness and presence and she created an environment that was receptive to and respectful of the diverse people within it. The adventures, experiences, and growth as a result of this journey have been transformative. I have nothing but gratitude."

    "Lotus of the Desert Retreat was for me, a trip of a lifetime. Our group was in very capable hands with Kristie Lonczak as our guide. I told her many times, ‘I could not have done India without you.’ As a developing country, India is not for the faint of heart. Kristie is a savvy, expert traveler. Like a Lotus growing firm the mud, she gracefully draws forth a profound, tangible, spiritual experience from the inherent chaos and cultural quirks of India. She handles the details, train schedules, and activities deftly. I felt safe in India—on a desert safari, negotiating streets at night and on remote hikes with Kristie leading us. Kristie’s contacts are all lovely people I trusted and was happy to give my business to. It’s obvious she draws to her like minded and spirited people because she is genuine, generous and kindhearted. Our group was a special blend of gifted, soulful women who were a joy to share this big journey with."

    "Kristie is intuitive, with a keen sense for balance of activity and relaxation. Her knowledge of outlying areas, of knowing the right people for a particular experience, of special temples off the tourist path are all invaluable. She knows and loves good food, clean, comfortable and beautiful places to stay—with safety, cleanliness and quality a priority."

    "This trip exceeded my expectations on many levels. We all hope to find something we believe only India can give us and this particular retreat delivers every opportunity to experience what the soul longs for. Truth and understanding, inspiration and beauty, adventure and fun and laughter are the threads that weave the beautiful memories this trip creates. "

    "A focus on the feminine was a powerful aspect of the trip that has changed my life forever. The goddess temples visited combined with Kristie’s guided meditations and her knowledge of Hindu mythology brought insights that have empowered me creatively."

    "Kristie is an excellent yoga instructor who brings a varied practice knowledge base to her class. This keeps the sessions interesting and in the spirit of travel and adventure, fresh and new. She secured great locations for yoga—hotel rooftops with beautiful views and quiet, private gardens. She easily managed a wide range of abilities and experience positively."

    "On a personal note, I have met a friend for life in Kristie. She is a powerful example for living authentically and I hope to have the opportunity to travel with her again."

    "Traveling through India with Kristie and Chris was a beautiful and unforgettable journey. Our trip from Delhi, to Rishikesh, to Dharamsala and back was exciting, adventurous and challenging. Kristie and Chris were fabulous guides, they knew all the most delicious restaurants, the best shops, the most interesting events to attend, and the best places to stay. Because of their familiarity with the magic and unpredictability of India, they dealt with any hiccups that came along with positivity and confidence. I felt safe traveling with them, which was important to me as a single female traveler. Kristie and Chris are wonderful and make a fabulous team. Kristie is really unique. I've never met anyone who has the same bright, energizing, positive and inspiring presence. She's one of those people who draws out the best qualities in everyone she meets. Plus, she has just the right combination of practicality and magical sparkle that makes her the perfect trip leader. She's also a fabulous yoga teacher! I could go on and on. You should just meet them for yourself."
