While you want to join our yoga treks in the mountains, there are specific points that you need to know before making the decision. These points will help you understand how we operate our yoga trekking trips. If these points still do not incorporate the answer you are looking for, please feel free to ask us any time. We will happily talk to you about it.
Here are some points that you need to understand about our yoga trekking trips in Nepal.
As the trip is about practicing yoga and walking the mountainous trekking trail, you will be practicing your yoga all in an open space. While on the trek in the mountains, we will find a suitable place to practice yoga at our overnight camps. But, at some places, the practice can be at the teahouse itself if the site has space. But, you have to be prepared to do the yoga outdoors, in beautiful nature.
If you have been practicing yoga at your home, you may find the yoga style on the trek different. But, you have to be open and welcoming to the yoga style taught on the yoga trek. Our style is Hatha yoga based on the traditional Ashtanga system. You can also share your experience of your particular type of practice, but the whole class will follow the instruction of our assigned yoga teacher.
All the meals served during the trip will be vegetarian foods. As a Yoga Trekking trip, we will follow the path of ahimsa (non-violence) throughout the journey. We will best stay away from harming any living beings knowingly or unknowingly. We will also be careful in taking care of Mother Earth to our best.
Our fixed departure yoga treks are all groups joining yoga treks, so you have to be open to mixing up with new yogi and yogini trekkers from different parts of the world. If you find it uncomfortable to mix with new people, this may not be the trip for you. But if you want to organize a private yoga trekking for your group on your dates, we can arrange one for you. So do let us know if you have your group and want to go yoga trekking in Nepal.
As our yoga treks go at high altitudes, especially Everest Base Camp Trek with Yoga and Mardi Himal Yoga Trek, there might be some altitude-related issues. If any such problem arises on someone during the trek, the trekking guide will immediately assign a porter to descend you to a lower elevation. At the same time, the rest of the group will continue further with the guide, yoga leader, and other team members.
We want to assure you that we discourage entirely unnecessary Helicopter evacuation until and unless it is an absolute need. The minor altitude or other health-related issues will be solved using the best methods possible on the spot. So, please be cooperative with the yoga leader and trekking guide and let them know how you feel as you trek higher. Let them know if you have got any issues to solve at the right moments. We expect and appreciate your cooperation.
