Accommodation

Accommodation will be in a three-star hotel in Mosaic City Madaba, in traditional Bedouin camps in Wadi Rum, and Little Petra, and eco pop-up camping with a private chef in Wadi Rum. Sanitary facilities are shared and simple.

Program

Postures and movement will be explored from a structural approach as much as the subtle body at the edge of sensation and perception, with breathwork, meditation, and philosophy weaving into all classes. You will have the unique opportunity to experience both Vinyasa flow and Scaravelli-inspired sessions of yoga from Sandra and Liz respectively.

Expanding your awareness and integrating more of yourself is gently supported by the interaction with horses. They reflect your state of being in the moment. They invite us to be present in the now, to transform limiting beliefs and to find the courage to live up to your fullest potential.

You will find yourself opening to grounding and adventure, lightness and creativity, expansion and joy, in the supportive field held by both Sandra and Liz. Between them, they have decades of experience in holding groups of transformation, healing and letting go of that which is no longer necessary.

Are you

  • dreaming to visit 3 unforgettable World Heritage sites?
  • ready to activate your inner healing energy of love, light & compassion?
  • wishing to reclaim your undiluted truth and set a clear focus for 2020?
  • called to explore the spiritual treasures of an ancient land?
  • moved to awaken the creative power that lies dormant in your soul?

Then this journey is for you!

Through the embodied practice of Scaravelli-inspired yoga, In2Jordan Travel Agency invites you into a relationship of depth within yourself where listening is cultivated, the body is honored and playful, creative exploration is welcomed.

On opening to the connection with the ground and calling-in and welcoming home all of yourself, postures, breathing, and meditation will become things that happen rather than things you do. Expanding your awareness and integrating more of yourself is gently supported by interacting with horses. They reflect our state of being in the moment and allow us to transform limiting beliefs in order to become fully present. All levels are welcome. No previous horse experience required.
