A meditative adventure

Camel & Yoga retreat through the desert

November 28 – December 1, 2019

Bayuda Desert – North Sudan

 

A sense of adventure, delightful camels, sunrise yoga, spectacular views and heart-warming company.

A one of a kind retreat. 

 

Start the day with gentle yoga to open the body. After a delicious breakfast we begin to traverse the Bayuda Desert on camel back, taking in the vastness of the desert. With a lunch stop, we eat, rest and then continue on our way. As the sun begins to descend we too prepare for the night. Restorative yoga is offered followed by community dinner under a star speckled night sky. 

This is the kind of experience that takes you away from your daily routine and transports you into another reality. One that takes us back to the basics of life: where phones are checked less often, where what was so important to do carries less urgency and where space is created in the body and mind for creativity to arise.

Join us from November 28 to December 1, 2019 on this extraordinary experience.
