On this yoga and horse wisdom retreat in Jordan, you will have the chance to experience the stillness of the Wadi Rum Desert and the magic of Petra, feel the power of the horses, and relax through yoga and meditation. The retreat also includes expression through dance, writing and drawing. Gain wisdom through awareness and fun through experiencing it all together! During this itinerary, Sandra Wallin, a big name in the equine industry, is flown over from Canada to give extra guidance.
During your stay at Madaba, you will stay at the three-star Mosaic City Hotel. During your desert escape, you will stay at the Bedouin desert camps. You will be able to sleep in a twin room, Bedouin tent, or under the stars, all with shared facilities. Tents, mattresses, blankets, and pillows are provided, while toilet facilities are basic.
Through the embodied practice of Scaravelli-inspired yoga, In2Jordan 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 your state of being in the moment and allow you to transform limiting beliefs in order to become fully present. All levels welcome. No previous horse experience required.
