GET LOVED UP YOGA RETREAT WITH KOYA WEBB
OCTOBER 5 - 12, 2019
Join us on a 7 night, 8 day yoga retreat in Egypt with international yoga teacher Koya Webb to discover the hustle and bustle of Cairo to the golden beaches of Gouna by the Red Sea. We will immerse ourselves in ancient Egyptian history and tradition by visiting the Great Pyramids of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the historic Egyptian Museum. From there we will adventure to Gouna by the Red Sea, one of the most beautiful beach destinations in the world to go on a boat ride, snorkel and visit Mahmya Island. Not to forget, we'll ride into the desert safari in quad bikes and visit a Bedouin camp for dinner under stars. If that isn't magical enough for you, Koya will be guiding you all week in a daily yoga practice that will empower you to cultivate self- love and find inspiration within! Escape with us, allow yourself to let go, breathe in every moment, and rejuvenate your soul.
You will be picked up from Cairo International Airport on arrival and be transferred to Marriott Mena House in Giza, Cairo to spend our first two nights with views of the Ancient pyramids. We'll gather around for our opening ceremony and set our intentions for the week. At night, we will whisk you away to enjoy dinner on the world famous Nile with a local cultural show.
We will rise early to take in the Ancient pyramids up close and Koya will lead us through a morning practice on the pyramid plateau! The rest of the day will be spent taking in the sights of Cairo with a tour of the Egyptian Museum and Citadel of Saladin. In the evening, we will venture to the Khan El Khalili Bazaar for shopping followed by dinner in a historic restaurant inside the souk.
After morning yoga and a quick breakfast, we will journey in a private bus to our next stop, the Sultan Bey in Gouna to relax by the Red Sea for 4 nights. We'll reach Gouna in time for lunch and the remainder of the time will be yours to explore.
We will adventure out to the Sinai desert with our quad bikes at sunset and camp at a Bedouin camp for a bon fire dinner and cultural entertainment under the stars.
Lounge on the beach, treat yourself to the spa or explore Gouna.
We will board a boat to snorkel the coral reefs and gardens of the Red Sea island of Mahmya in the protected waters of the Giftun Island National Park. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphin sightings which are very common in this area.
