Accommodation is arranged in yurts or traditional Mongolian gers. There are two exclusive camps in wild, remote, and completely peaceful locations. There is space for a maximum of 18 guests in single or twin gers. The gers have wooden floors and are beautifully decorated in traditional nomadic style with hand-crafted furnishings. The luxury camp is run by a Mongolian team. There are eco toilets which are a short walk from the camp. There are two beautiful yurts for showers.

Water for your showers is collected from a well or the nearby river, carried by camel and yak cart, heated on a fire, and placed in an overhead bucket. Four nights luxury glamping accommodation is arranged at the Gobi camp, three nights at the Khan Kentii wilderness camp, and two nights in a 3 or 4-star hotel in Ulaan Bator. Besides these, an upgrade to a five-star hotel in Ulaan Bator is available from 600 USD for two nights.

Reclaim Your Self Yoga and Meditation Retreat Mongolia Program

The extensive itinerary and program line up makes the retreat a special one. Bask in the Mongolian retreat as you glamp in luxury, engage in yoga classes, take up meditation sessions, enjoy a bonfire, and hike to different locations. A six-hour journey from Ulaan Bator is included in your retreat.

The Mongolia yoga retreat takes place in two very different locations. You will be glamping in the luxury yurt camps in the East Gobi and the interior parts of Gorkhi Terelj National Park. You will travel to the first camp on the Trans Mongolian Railway and spend four nights there. With daily yoga, hikes into the desert, camel treks, massages, meditation, and an evening kirtan deep in the desert around a campfire, the Gobi location is magical and worldly.

The second camp, the Khan Kentii, is a wilderness reaching all the way to the Russian or Siberian border. It is possibly one of the most beautiful places you would have ever been to, located on the Upper Tuul River which meanders gently through the vast meadows of wildflowers and through the lush forested hills.

You will spend three nights there and your yoga classes are complimented with a full day nature hike deep into the remote mountains.


Yogis of all levels are welcome to the retreat. A Jivamukti class trial is recommended before you attend the retreat, as it is a dynamic flow style of yoga. It will require you to commit to your classes. The retreat teacher, Emma Henry, is one of the top Jivamukti teachers and is very experienced at teaching mixed level groups, so you can be sure of feeling challenged and inspired to safely explore and deepen your yoga practice.

Horse riding

For those with experience, there is an option for riding the world famous Mongolian horses. Splashing through rivers and riding up mountains on these semi-wild animals is an unforgettable and exhilarating experience. The remote location is an inspiring wilderness, perfect for contemplation and exploration. You will have a full day out in the Khan Kentii wilderness hiking with a local guide to explore to the spectacular landscape and stunning views.

You can opt for a full day ride with a Mongolian horseman at an additional cost of 40 USD for riding. There will be time to relax in the sauna set up close to the river, as well as kayaking, and rafting options.


Hiking in the Gobi forms a part of the retreat. You will hike into the desert one evening with local herdsmen to enjoy the silence and explore the mind blowing landscape at sunset. The remote location is an inspiring wilderness, perfect for contemplation and exploration. You will have a full day out in the Khan Kentii wilderness hiking with a local guide to explore to the spectacular landscape and stunning views.

Meditation and kirtan

Desert meditation and kirtan in the Gobi will be an exciting experience. You will spend an afternoon and evening at a small desert camp. You will meditate amongst ancient rocks, a powerful place where monks used to meditate in the 14th and 15th centuries. Enjoy an incredible sunset, a camp fire dinner, and kirtan.
