Itinerary

Your journey begins with a fully guided day at historic Petra, the UNESCO world heritage site, before travelling on to the Wadi Rum.

In the Wadi Rum desert, our yoga instructor Sarah Burton will guide you through Vinyasa Flow Yoga.

Vinyasa Yoga is a discipline that utilizes postures and breathing techniques. This form of yoga offers a range of health benefits to those who practice it, as it encompasses all areas of mind, body and soul. Much emphasis is placed on the breath, and the transition in and out of the asana. This practice can incorporate some kind of meditation before or after the class, and the practice itself is often considered a ‘moving meditation’.

Throughout the week you will be guided around the Wadi Rum, to experience the breath taking views, with a combination of walking, jeep, and even a day on a camel.

Yoga practices will be held at various times in the day to get the full benefits of the magnificent locations in the desert. Each evening you will experience genuine Bedouin cooking, and be treated to Bedouin music around the campfire under starlight.
