Innergy Recalibration: An embodied nourishing experience with Chocolako

Egypt

April 17 - 24, 2022

 

Join us on a 7 night, 8 day traveling yoga retreat ADzenTURE through the ancient world of Egypt with international yoga teacher Chocolako. Together, we will explore the Great Pyramids of Giza and sights and sounds of Cairo, set sail across the Nile in a traditional Dahabeya boat to discover the magic within the temples of Luxor and Karnak, and venture to laid back Aswan, which brings together Nile views, relaxation, ancient ruins, and Nubian culture in a relatively small space compared to other sprawling Egyptian cities.

In addition to exploring one of the most mystical destinations in the world, Chocolako will be leading us through a daily yoga practice to nourish and recalibrate our mind, body and soul! 

TRAVEL ITINERARY

DAY 1: Arrival and dinner with a view of the pyramids

Transfer from Cairo international airport to our hotel and in the evening we will gather for our opening ceremony and a welcome dinner with views of the three Pyramids of Giza in the background on a rooftop close by.

Start your day with yoga and then a mesmerizing tour of the three Pyramids and Sphinx and the last standing 7th wonder of ancient world. Return to the hotel for rest and in the evening transfer to dinner and an evening in the 14th century souk of Khan El-Khalili. The bustling, maze-like corridors offer a unique shopping experience with everything from silverware to spices and handicrafts.

Get off the Dahabeya to visit to Edfu temple, home to one of the best-preserved temples and the second largest in Egypt, Horus temple. In this majestic and enormous sanctuary, the grand gate alone is sure to make your jaw drop. Learn more about this site from your guide as you stroll through
vast hallways and massive chambers. The unique Kom Ombo temple is a set of two identical temples built for the crocodile God Sobek and the falcon god Horus.
