Its design is typical of the Bedouin's semi-nomadic history. It has a small museum showcasing various herbs, real items from Bedouin life, and photos of old local Bedouins. It is a down-to-earth setting with real hospitable service and lots of smiling faces.

Bedouin tents are furnished with Bedouin style mattresses and rugs. It has four units of showers and toilets with running hot water housed in a Bedouin tent, a little kitchen area with a small cold storage and cleaning sinks, a large common area of Bedouin tents to host campers as well as other guests for dining and entertainment, and fire safety equipment as well as first aid kit.

Sandra Jelly
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)
Sandra is an artist, yogini, and an equus coach. She started exploring yoga in 2001 in Amsterdam. In 2009, following her inner wish of living her passions, she packed her brushes and her yoga mat and put on her horse boots to go for a sabbatical to Petra, Jordan. It was the beginning of her adventure of discovering and expressing herself in the most authentic way.

Retreat location

This retreat will be held at Little Petra in Jordan. Petra was a Nabatean caravan-city and an important cross road between Arabia, Egypt, and Syria-Phoenica. The Nabateans were a kind of predatory nomads who played an important role in transporting the goods. By charging road tax they gained great wealth and power that was used to carve and build their facades in the rocks.

The nomads gained different kind of views on architecture which resulted in a design of the tombs in which you still can see influences of other tribes, nations, or empires. The history of the Petra site is endless, many Nabatean kings threats from other Kingdoms and occupations of the Romans, Christians, and later even by the Bedouins. In 1812, Johann Ludwig Buckhardt succeeded to rediscover Petra, which was kept secret for a long time. In 1929 the first excavations took place.

Little Petra

The area of Petra is huge and even in the neighboring village, Little Petra, you can find tombs. The Siq al Barid (the cold Siq) was kind like a suburb of Petra. There, the goods were saved and registered. Several temples can be found which must have been offices, houses, and warehouses. In one of the facades even frescoes can be seen. Although these are damaged by Bedouins who were previously living in this caves, still some of the images can be seen.
