Mongolia is our most remote yoga retreat takes place in two very different locations. You will be glamping in our luxury yurt camps in the East Gobi and the interior parts of Gorkhi Terelj National Park.
We travel to our first camp on the Trans Mongolian Railway and spend 3 nights there. With daily yoga, hikes into the desert, camel treks, massages, meditation and an evening kirtan deep in the desert around a campfire, our Gobi location is magical and other worldly. Then we head by jeep to for 4 nights at our second yoga retreat camp in the Khan Kentii, possibly one of the most beautiful places we have ever been. Our days here are spent hiking or riding horses in the wilderness with a local herder, as well as rafting and kayaking on the river.
Senior Jivamukti teacher Emma Henry will teach daily yoga classes. Morning classes will be 2.5 hours and you’ll experience a strong Jivamukti practice. Afternoon sessions will be workshop style or more restorative. Each Jivamukti class offers a dynamic asana practice that is infused with inspiring teachings derived from the ancient yogic texts.
Classes will include chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation. Modifications and progressions are given so that everyone will find these yoga classes rewarding but this retreat is not suitable for complete beginners.
We travel with our own talented massage therapist, Elodie Frati, who will be offering sports massage to help with any aches and pains. Blissful time in our riverside yurt sauna is an experienced not to be missed. Once you have heated your body you can run outside and jump into the (very refreshing) river to cool down. A top Mongolian revitalising experience!
