Comments from 2017, Inner Journey Outer India.

"This was the journey of a lifetime. There was an incredible group and it was boundless adventure. The places, we stayed in, as organized by Alexis Kriel,  were beyond the realm…fabulous. I loved the spiritual ideas we played with. I would do it again. What did I take away: Life is a journey! "
-Anne Pearson

"I loved it all: The variety and richness of food, activities, location and human connection; the beautiful framing of experiences by Helena’s creative, thought-provoking and spiritual writing explorations; and Wayne’s yoga and meditation which so powerfully heightened mindfulness of all in a perfect compliment.

What was put in motion in India remains with me still..."
- Shellan Isakson

"I LOVED India.  The journey was a great mix of city, country, nature.  I especially loved the places we stayed in.  The itinerary, designed by Alexis  was fabulous. I loved the yoga and the ideas presented by Helena in anticipation of the next day's events were invaluable to my appreciation of everything.  There is SO MUCH to see, hear, do, experience - Helena helped me understand how to get the most out of each day. I would do it again in a heartbeat."
-Lyn Ayal

"Short creative writing classes taught by Helena encouraged us to be in the moment; live, feel, breathe, explore the beauty that is India. She especially encouraged us to interact personally with as many people as possible, from hotel and restaurant staff to street
vendors to people just hanging around. I really liked that personal touch. The incredible itinerary, designed by Alexis, took us to some off the beaten path places, like an isolated monkey temple in a village about an hour outside of Jaipur."
-Mary Dipple

Comments from Helena Kriel's Passage to India 2015 trip

"Helena designed the most incredible writer’s adventure. She worked her ass off each day to lead and engage us creatively. The trip was everything I wanted it to be, except it just didn’t last long enough! Since India, I've been writing like a maniac and it feels glorious."
-Jami Powell, essayist

"This trip challenged the way I see the world and what I see in it. My life is richer, for I have added colors, friends, impressions, new tastes and experiences, as well as renewed determination to write. I would follow Helena anywhere! This was a life-long dream come true."
- Katerina Stoykova-Klemer, poet

"Day to day as we traveled, Helena kept us going, reminding us how and why we came to be creative people. I will forever be amazed at Helena’s endurance and positive influence and I thank her for the gifts, both tangible and intangible."
-Angela Elles, poet

"Helena navigates you through India in such a magical and inventive way. Unexpected surprises, incredible day trips to fascinating places, stimulation, fun and the best guides in India. Highly recommend going on one of these fantastic creative adventures."
-Jenni Brown Greenberg, makeup artist

Quotes from Wayne's Students

"Wayne’s yoga class is the highlight and reward of my day/week/month. He is of incredible service to everyone who is smart enough to participate."
Mollie Q. Vehling, UCLA Spirit Director

"Wayne brings consciousness to his classes and holds the space for us to be present to receive physical/emotional/mental release. He is a truly gifted teacher and teaches in a way that is in keeping with how yoga was intended to be practiced."
Pamela Chionis, Owner Sedona Yoga

"Wayne is one of the few yoga teachers left in the world who truly understand the principles of yoga. A teacher like Wayne comes around once in a lifetime (I've practiced everywhere!). After Wayne's class, I remember why I do yoga."
Dina Zaphiris, Dog Trainer to the Stars

"Wayne is a Kick Ass Angel who inspires you to ‘wake up’ from your spiritual amnesia and remember who you are at a deep soul level."
Stella Davies, Reiki Master
