Come to Beidha for a quiet weekend of self-reflection and yoga as you find renewal in the serene mountains of southern Jordan. Embark on a journey of self-exploration as you attune yourself to the natural rhythms of the desert and of your own body through the renewing practice of yoga. Enjoy sunrise and sunset yoga sessions, mindfull meditative walks, spiritual talks, and time around the fire while you ponder the stillness of the desert.
During the retreat, you will be accommodated at Ammarin Bedouin Camp. Located in the mountains of Al Beidha in southern Jordan, Ammarin Bedouin Camp is a great place to ponder the stillness of the desert and experience the depth of your inner self.
The Bedouin tents at Ammarin are furnished with Bedouin-style mattresses and rugs. The facilities include:
Arrive at the Ammarin Camp by 18:00 and check in. Enjoy a cup of tea by the fire and go for a wander before you meet with other participants as a group to welcome each other and begin to share names and stories.

Rise early for a sunrise yoga followed by breakfast. Enjoy a free morning to yourself or participate in a guided meditative walk. A midday yoga session will be held before lunch, followed by rest time. Take more free time after you rest or participate in a session on conscious communication. Return to camp for sunset yoga, followed by dinner and more time around the fire.
Rise for a final sunrise yoga session, followed by breakfast. After breakfast, there will be a group session on cultivating active purpose before a final mid-day yoga session, followed by lunch and a closing circle.
This retreat will be held in Petra, Jordan, more specifically in close proximity to the Al Beidha archeological reserve. Petra was the secret of the local Bedouin for hundreds of years until the Swiss explorer Johann Burkhardt ‘rediscovered’ it in 1812. The vast Petra region, covering some 650 square kilometers, 160 square kilometers of which form a national park, contains over 800 individual monuments and it is believed that only one quarter of it has yet to be excavated. It remains an eternal tribute to a lost civilization. It has an enormous amount to offer to everyone: those interested in archaeology, geology, art, water engineering, agricultural techniques, nature and landscape or just the sheer beauty and majesty of the place.
The Red Rose city, half as old as time, has been inhabited since prehistoric times. A must-visit for those traveling in Jordan. Petra was a Nabatean caravan-city and an important cross road between Arabia, Egypt and Syria-Phoenica.
The Nabateans were nomads who played an important role in transporting goods. By charging road taxes, they gained great wealth and power. This was used to carve and build their facades in the rocks. The nomads gained different kinds of architectural knowledge, which resulted in various tomb designs, most of which you can still see today. These tombs influences other tribes, nations or empires.
The history of the Petra site is almost endless, with many Nabatean kings, threats from other kingdoms, occupations of the Romans, Christians and later even by the Bedouins. In 1812, Johann Ludwig Buckhardt rediscovered Petra, which was kept secret for a long time. In 1929 the first excavations took place.
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 a kind of suburb to Petra. Here the goods were stored 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, some of the images still can be seen - an extremely rare heritage. Take a pocket light if you want to see them!
During your stay, you will be served daily healthy meals. You will have dinner on the arrival day, breakfast, lunch and dinner on the second day, and breakfast on the last day of your stay. Tea will be served by the fire on the first night of your stay.
Please book a flight to arrive at Queen Alia International Airport (AMM) in Amman, Jordan.
