HIMALAYAN YOGA TREK NEPAL 2019
WHAT IS IT?
The Himalayan Yoga Trek is an adventure of a lifetime that combines the two pursuits of trekking and yoga.
Together, we explore pristine rural Nepal on foot, witnessing the majesty of the iconic Himalaya Mountains, staying in rustic home stays with local families, learning about regional customs and trying delicious Nepali food, bathing in hot springs, and practicing yoga and meditation daily in stunning surroundings.
The result is an experience never to forget. You’ll leave with a clearer calmer mind, a stronger healthier body, life enriching memories, and an uplifted heart and soul.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Anyone with an interest in travel, yoga, adventure, and nature who is looking for a trip with a difference.
We will be trekking in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It is suitable for complete beginners to hiking/trekking and requires no specialist mountaineering knowledge or equipment. The trek is suitable for most fitness levels, but a good level of mobility is required. If there is any doubt please get in touch and we can advise you.
We will be walking for between 4-6 hours every day through an ever-changing landscape of rhododendron forests, glacial lakes, mountain paths, through villages, alongside rivers.
We will be accompanied and supported on our journey by an experienced team of Nepali guides and porters.
We will practice yoga (including meditation and pranayama) twice daily. The morning sessions will energise us and prepare us for the day’s walking ahead, and the evening sessions will soothe tired muscles and provide deep rest and relaxation. We will explore yogic themes that will help to enrich our experience and connect us to the landscape around us.
The yoga classes are also suitable for all levels of experience. Jasmine is an experienced teacher who is fully certified and insured and aims to make yoga accessible, enjoyable, and useful to all participants.
All food and accommodation on trekking days is included in the cost (and in addition, so is the accommodation in Pokhara the night before we set off). Accommodation on the trek is basic (generally an extension to local people’s homes) but comfortable enough. You will need to bring your own warm sleeping bag (or hire a down one in Pokhara or Kathmandu).
The route was incredible, loved that we got to see the less developed part at the beginning. The yoga classes were really well planned to compliment the stages of the walk and help the body recover. Also great themes to help us look after the body during the trek and further connect with nature along the way. All the guest houses were perfect and in amazing locations. The whole team coordinating the trip worked perfectly, great guide and the porters couldn’t do enough for the group. jasmine and Hal made a great team, I felt safe, supported as they were always professional but at the same time there was such a great vibe that it felt like we were a bunch of friends hanging out in the mountains. Everything worked for me, I loved every minute!
Seeing the mountains in Nepal was one of the most awe-inspiring experiences I have ever had. Jasmine is extremely talented and covers a lot of different yoga practices which perfectly complemented the trekking and different energy levels we all had at different times throughout the week. This was hands down one of the best holidays I have ever had.
Food along the trails is off a standard trekking menu with a variety of options. We always advise people to eat the local food as it is always the tastiest! Fresh fruit and nuts are also provided to snack on.

What an amazing adventure!! Both the yoga and the trekkkng were brilliantly run and complimented each other down to the ground. We got to see parts of the world we’d never imagined and were lead by an experienced team who provided great insight into life in Nepal. I would go again in a heartbeat.
This Yoga Trek has been one of the most amazing things I have ever done. The mountains were awe inspiring! I felt so alive and at peace being within them. Having never attempted such a physical challenge I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do it, but I did! And now it has given me such confidence. .. and I have fallen in love with yoga which has already improved my wellbeing. Jasmine, Jitendra and their team were absolutely fantastic. Massive respect to them all.
We really hope you can come and experience the magic for yourselves.
