Tapta Marg literally means the ‘path of heat’. The name refers to a way of life, a commitment to inner transformation, a celebration of the human journey in its most vibrant form. From the destinations we choose for our retreats and trainings, to how we approach the practice of yoga, to the teachers and guides and trainers we partner with, you will find our offerings infused with love and heartfelt devotion.

I have now been practicing Yoga with Josh Schrei over 4 years. I have had ample opportunity to experience his depth and breadth of knowledge and his incredible ability to convey that knowledge in his class. I have also come to appreciate the abiding love he has for his own practice of the 8 Limbs of Yoga. His guidance in Asana as well as Pranayama practice has been invaluable to me.Daniel Craig, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Military Veteran, Homeless Advocate
At age seventeen we completed our 200-hour RYT with Josh and were still hungry for more. We delayed college for a year in order to pursue our passion for the practice, and we had a delightful training experience with Josh in Tiruvannamalai, South India! India took us out of our typical routine and into a world full of love and devotion within every action. It is an experience that hasn’t left our hearts yet and has stretched our worlds wide open.Elena and Laura Sippel, 500 hour trainees
It’s rare in life that you have the opportunity to sit at the feet a teacher who understands all of your complexities, your energy, and your reasons for being there. Josh is that rare teacher. And the experience of his classes will not only bring you the physical strength to move through each day, but the less tangible ability to do so with grace, and love, and a greater sense of purpose.Meaghen Brown, Competitive Ultra-Runner, Editor, Outside Magazine
Spending time with Josh, whether traveling with him on a yoga retreat or participating as a student in his yoga teacher training, soaking up all of his yoga knowledge is like stepping into another universe where everything shimmers with gold and the world is full of love and graciousness.Ali Troxell, PR Consultant, Former Editor, Outside Magazine
Practicing with Josh has had a significant impact in helping me center, both physically and mentally. Josh approaches the practice with a lot of heart. He astutely observes the world and shares insights with humility and integrity, effectively paralleling the yoga experience with the human journey in the world. His classes are at once subtle and rigorous, with a strong focus on mindfulness and healthy anatomical alignment. He leads with grace and without judgment, offering what is practical and what is possible.Tania Shahani., Attorney
Retreat with Josh is sure to be an invitation to full spectrum discovery. His passion for travel adventure and sincere spiritual practice infuse each of his curated offerings; participants can expect to traverse both breathtaking physical landscapes and breath-giving spiritual topography in equal part. In my ten years of organizing yoga retreats and pilgrimages for students, the retreats I have led with Josh have been among the most inspired — and most extraordinary.Shawn Parell, EYRT-500, Prana Flow Instructor
