      About this trip

      During our time on retreat, we'll explore the transformative power of lovingkindness and feel how the warm, hospitable Omani people integrate these into all aspects of life. We'll enjoy traditional Omani meals, henna application, hikes through the mountains, and practice meditation together, all while immersing ourselves in the warm sunshine!


      Our home base will be Villa Kebira, which offers much more than just a vacation in paradise. Villa Kebira is perfectly situated in a quiet riverside oasis but within close walking distance to a nearby beach. It's the perfect setting to nourish, recharge, and heal your mind, body, and spirit.


      We'll start with a sunrise meditation practice followed by an energizing morning yoga practice. After the brunch buffet you have time for yourself or join one of the daily offered group activities. For sunset we will have qi gong session. Then, group dinners are enjoyed on Villa Kebira's large outdoor terrace. After dinner, either enjoy some solo time or join for a 90 minute dharma talk. For details, please check the itinerary below.

      Getting the yoga teacher community together is something that never happens. This meet-up was so much fun! Delicious food provided by Sweetgreen, a sweet practice outside next to new friends and old. It was great chatting with many people with different teaching experience. While I had not really thought about leading a retreat, I would consider leading something in the future with your company. Thank you so much for hosting a fun, meaningful and delicious event!
