Full Description

We will start this Yoga Holiday Program 13. April 2014 at 7:45 with an introductory chat, talking about your previous yoga experience, if any, as well as physical restrictions or injuries that will be taken into consideration during practice.

14. April 2014
The second day will start with an asana class in the yogaroom. After lunch a minibus will take us to the desert where we will meet our Bedouin Guides and camels to start our amazing yoga- desert- adventure. We will set up camp, enjoy a vegetarian lunch, explore the surrounding and by sunset we will experience our first Pranayama & meditation class in the stillness and beauty of the desert. After a lovely dinner we will spend the first night under the starry desert sky or, if you choose to, in a tent.

15. April 2014
The third day starts with sunrise asana practice in the desert and you will already feel the calming and stimulating effect of the yoga- desert combination. After breakfast you can choose to hike or camel ride for about 2 hours through this fantastic landscape. The
lunch break will be in a shady place and after some rest we will continue for another hour before we set up camp again. As soon as the sun sets, we will have another Pranayama & meditation class, followed by a delicious Bedouin dinner and some star gazing, before we sleep the second night in the desert.

16. April 2014
Day four starts with our last sunrise- desert- asana practice and leaves us with unforgettable memories.
After breakfast it is time to hike or camel ride back to meet the minibus that will take us back to Dahab. At 5:00 we will meet again in the yogaroom to share some Pranayama & meditation practice together.

17. April 2014
The morning after returning from the yoga desert safari will be your opportunity to sleep in and just enjoy a slow Dahab day, or use the free time for some different activities like Diving, snorkelling, surfing etc.
We will meet for another Pranayama & meditation session in the yogaroom at 5

18. April 2014
The last session of the yoga holiday program will be an Asana class at 8 in the yogaroom and then you can use the rest of the day to enjoy yourself, Dahab and its stunning views and numerous activities.

Please note that you need to bring your own sleeping bag for the safari, some warm clothes, hiking shoes and personal toileteries and medicine.
