* Note There may be minor changes to the program in relation to time / driving / weather conditions. The exact time schedule can only be done, when on site, as it must be adapted to the Bedouins and their preparation for our food, driving, hiking, etc.
The yoga is adapted to your needs, level and wishes. The yoga sessions is a blend of gentle Yin yoga that rebuilds the cells of the body and provides tranquility to our mind and body and hatha / flow yoga that awakens the body's natural energy so you learn to switch between the inner calm and more energetic flow in your body and also learn to listen to your body.
Yoga has a calming effect and is good at creating inner balance and connection to our emotional life. We will do yoga daily and you will be guided through the exercises. No previous experience needed.
