What is unique about this trip?

Holistic Yoga teacher Robyn Stephens at Lura’s temple yoga session, April 2019.

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, 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. (The next one will be in April 2021. Stay tuned for further details!)

Patricia at an hourly rest on the walk up to TenKharka (3500M), where we spend two nights. She went on to climb Pike Peak with another two members, while a few of us enjoyed being, talking, and exploring around the camp.

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 if this yoga trek. Email me with your phone number and I’ll answer any questions you might have.

WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY ABOUT IT?

“It was fun! 😄🐰🐣 ” Lilian & Ken

” Thank you for the lovely photo. Yes, it certainly was a wonderful trip.
I think what made it special was the fact that it was “custom made” and didn’t feel like the usual “tourist” experience.
The size and dynamics of the group which made it easier to bond.
The variety of experiences: hiking, yoga, meditating with monks, shopping, sightseeing and dining in Kathmandu, not to mention the trekker’s massage.
The delicious food and how everything was organised smoothly and efficiently, but even more than that, the genuine care shown towards us and the fact that nothing was too much trouble.
I could go on and on, but you did say to keep it short!
Love and best wishes”
Roberta
“Thank you for organising a really special trip.
When we trekked it was like we had the trek all to ourselves being on one of the lesser hiked treks.  And what a beautiful trek it was,  along mountain paths through friendly little villages past villagers attending to their animals and crops which made a lovely contrast and just as amazing as our summit trek to PK Peak with views of Everest, through an enchanting forest and rhododendron trees.  Doing yoga with superb views was sublime.  Thank you for sharing special hints and tips to make us all the more comfortable and introducing us to a wonderful place, food, experiences and above all to your incredibly kind, fun, helpful contacts and friends built up over the years who couldn’t do enough for us which all combined to make a marvellous memory.
With big smiles”,
Phillipa
