Over the last ten years Indigourlaub has been specialized in holidays with Yoga, Qi Gong, Meditation and Ayurveda programs. It has dedicated its time to offer journeys, which are individual and innovative, active and relaxing at the same time.
One of the questions that is at the heart of Indigourlaub, is how can we promote a tourism that is based upon ethical conduct, respect of the environment, and that actively participates to the restoration of harmony, well-being and the rebalancing of the world.

One of the reasons we chose to offer holidays with yoga, meditation, Ayurveda… is because these tools have a profound impact on how we relate to ourselves. In a busy world like ours, we have forgotten from where we are come from, and our deep roots with nature and the earth. Technics like yoga or meditation naturally lead to love ourselves more deeply and find a greater sense of connection with others. And when qualities such as kindness and compassion are cultivated within us, they start to manifest in everything we engage with in life.
We understand that what is “outside” of us is not different from what is within us. This profound insight reminds us that when we harm others, the planet, we harm ourselves. Everything is interconnected. We believe that the industry of tourism if applied with ethic and respect of the environment can actively contribute to the rebalancing of the world. In this spirit, we feel close to Treesisters core values and mission.
Indigourlaub was founded in 2005 by Sonja Miko. She had been working on tourism since 15 years already and therefore had quite an extensive overview about the positive and negative influence tourism can have on environment and people. Convinced of the idea that there is a way to offer special vacation programs that can take place beside mass tourism, she began to offer a combination of holidays and certain programs like Qi Gong, coaching, painting-programs. The basis from the very beginning was a fair and appreciative partnership with all people working together in the holiday destinations and the clients. People booking an Indigourlaub-holiday should feel the value of their holiday time much longer than the time spending abroad. Over the years more and more people were convinced that this way of travelling really influences the everyday life, as guests got to know methods on how to improve the quality of living. Today Indigourlaub is one of the main tour operators specialized in holidays with Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda worldwide. The team consists of four powerful women offering a way of travelling based on ethics, ecological and human values.
Our aim is to bring to mind that holidays can be much more than just free time in another country, it can be a valuable possibility to restore the balance between body, mind and soul, which is the base for a healthy life. And it can be a possibility to build bridges with other cultures, to respect their ways of life and – maybe – learn from them. We want to point out, that travellers have a certain responsibility for protecting nature of the places they visit and that every single person can make a small (or big) contribution.
