Program

Trekking boosts physical and mental wellbeing, connects one with nature, and manifests a calm mind as one leaves stressors behind

Bella’s role as a mountain leader and yoga instructor is to facilitate safety, support, and management throughout the experience. You work with a Nepalese guide named Raman and porters to carry your bag to make the trek a little easier on the legs.

This eight-day trek through the Annapurna Sanctuary is ideal for those interested in a fun adventure, meeting like-minded people, pursuing a health goal, wanting perspective on life, seeking more peace of mind and so much more.

Breaking habit patterns back home requires huge amounts of effort and focus when surrounded by familiar temptations and actions that don’t serve your long-term health goals; like habitually drinking too much, eating foods that don’t align with balance, or going straight to the TV after work.

It's very nourishing to be free of most of your responsibilities and stressors for a time and go back with a renewed sense of perspective, motivation, and clarity.

Time in a beautiful, calming environment allows space for you to gain perspective on your priorities in life, develop insight into what might be going wrong, and strategize how to manifest the life of you satisfied with and excited by.
