Uschi Gibson & Rakesh
Hostess, India Liaison, Lucky Lalita Pilgrimage

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.

Offering various itineraries and hosting services for grounded Yoga trainings, Rakesh & Uschi are available for a multitude of hosting and advising services for India travel. Local to Varanasi, Rakesh grew up working with tourists and speaks fluent English, as well as some Italian, Spanish, German, and Japanese. Growing up in a traditional Brahmin family from a lineage of priests and Sari salesmen, Rakesh treats his hosting with the same honor he has learned the tradition 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 worked on Yoga events, she grew into wanting to share her passion for India with friends and an extended community.

Rakesh and Uschi established LuckyLalita together in 2011 to live their dream of hosting groups and sharing the magic of Varanasi, the city they love, and other special locations in Northern India. They strive to offer a multi layered experience which is safe, protected, but also engages on a deep level with local culture, customs, spirituality, and the sacred geography of the places they visit.
