Overview

Yoga is the perfect mixture and a superb union of the delicate soul and the supreme soul. Yoga trekking integrates the natural world with one’s inner self. The ideal outcome is a fulfilling experience that awakens senses for deeper awareness and greater relaxation beneath the towering Himalayas. Yoga has many varied, subtle, yet incredibly superior advantages. Strength and flexibility are enhanced. Yoga stretches your muscles and relieves low back pain, stress, and anxiety. It also makes sleeping better. Additionally, the yoga trekking program is appropriate for people of all ages and offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to improve one’s physical and mental health. Furthermore, including charity along with yoga satisfies your soul.

For the first time, the Everest Base Camp trekking experience will be offered with a unique twist, combining Eastern and Western philosophies of Yoga, meditation and pranayama with the physical endurance of two weeks of trekking and exploration in the highest mountain range in the world. Join other like-minded individuals with a spirit of adventure for a once-in-a-lifetime experience as you hike through beautiful landscapes, visit historical and spiritual monuments, and get to know the rich culture of the people who call these lands home.

You will have daily asana practice along with meditation and group discussions to quiet the mind and to balance out the strenuous nature of hiking. Throughout the trip, you will also have free time to explore various campsites and villages, engage in colourful dialogue with your fellow adventurers and also the native locals, discover your inner sanctuary as you reconnect to nature and to those around you, and be inspired to live authentically, with compassion while pursuing your own passions. Most importantly, this yoga trek will be for a cause.

The fund received through this trek will be used to assist Sunsar Maya– The goal of Sunsar Maya is to provide underprivileged women and children in Nepal with holistic, community-based programs that support their physical, mental, and emotional welfare. Sunsar Maya was formed in 2011 by four people who met and grew close to one another while volunteering in Nepal. The compassion and generosity of the Nepali people, especially the youngsters they encountered, moved them to tears. They decided to improve the lives of Nepalis after seeing the struggles that so many of them experience on a daily basis. Sunsar Maya is now administered mostly by Nepali women, with board members and support staff dispersed throughout the world.

Tantra, yoga, and meditation are thought to have their roots in the holy country of Nepal. Yoga is thought to have been practised fervently in Nepal some 28,000 years ago. The Himalayan location of Everest Base Camp was chosen for the Yoga Trek because of its distinctive natural environment. An exciting experience that revitalises your soul, mind, and body is practising yoga beneath the shadow of the great Everest. You can discover the beauty both outside of and within yourself through this distinctly intimidating experience.

About Our Charity Yoga Trek:

The trek to Everest Base Camp is one of the most famous and popular in the world, taking you right into the heart of the Nepalese Everest Base Camp. Nepal has 8 of the world’s 14 highest peaks and is blessed with spectacular mountains and vistas, justifiably famous not only for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain but also for its friendly people, picturesque villages, great variety of cultures and traditions, temples and monasteries. The Everest trek is inside The Sagarmatha National Park, which is rich for its flora and fauna, and is the land of yeti, whose existence remains a mystery. Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek is an excellent opportunity to get an exciting lifetime experience with Yoga on Everest. What if we combine trekking, yoga , meditation and charity?  An incredible fusion will rejuvenate your soul and mind. Everest Yoga Trek is the humbling experience where anyone can achieve the highest form of nirvana, delving into the art of calming oneself from within. Next, to the peak that reaches the clouds, you can feel yourself standing at the edge of glory and embracing your true self which was lost in the hustle of daily life.
