What is unique about this trip?
I worked with Robyn Stephens to create a yoga trek in order for you to share my love of the culture, landscape and people of Nepal, combined with her love of walking and offering a Yoga experience suitable for anyone with a sense of adventure.
Robyn is not available in 2020/21, and is working with our new Yoga Holistic Teacher, Patricia Mottram, another old friend I look forward to spend time with again. Patricia was a member of the very successful women 4 women walking retreat in November 2019.
Here is an extract of Patricia’s qualifications from her website.
Patricia qualified originally as a microbiologist, with a special interest in herbs, botany and plant pathology. She has a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Medical Biology from the University of Melbourne and worked for many years in medical research.
Patricia has practiced yoga for over 40 years. She is a qualified yoga teacher and a yoga therapist. She has studied astrology, has an interest in ‘energy’ medicine, and is qualified as a Pellowah therapist and Reiki Master/teacher.
She has also completed a Graduate Diploma in Health Science (Herbal Medicine) at the University of New England (NSW).
She has travelled often to countries where Ayurveda is practiced (Nepal, India, Bhutan, Burma) and completed an intensive course in Ayurvedic therapy in Sri Lanka. She loves this ancient and spiritual medical system, with its very practical approach to diagnosis and use of yoga for physical awareness and food as medicine.
|HOW FAR AND HOW HIGH? Most of the trip is in moderate and manageable altitude. Kathmandu is only 1,320 metres above sea level. Some people may get mild altitude symptoms over 2,500 metres. Our highest group stay is at 3,500m which is 1,800 metres lower than Everest base camp, and over a thousand meters higher than Australia’s highest peak, Mount Koszciusko! We walk a maximum of 6- 7 hours per day with plenty of rest between, and because our trip is fully supported, we only carry a light day pack with basic essentials for the day. This makes travelling much easier.
DO I NEED TO TRAIN? Nepal is a very hilly country. Please make sure you commit to walking uphill and downhill on uneven ground ( bushwalks) on a regular basis to ensure you enjoy the walking component of this yoga trek. Email me with your phone number and I’ll answer any questions you might have.
