About this trip

Immerse yourself in the history and culture of Nepal on a 14 day trekking and yoga excursion. Each day will begin with daily yoga asana and meditation.  Morning yoga will be followed with fully guided excursions to ancient temples, a monastery to receive an intimate tour and teaching, and will spend days exploring historical sites in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Pokhara. After spending 7 days touring the Kathmandu valley, we will begin trekking the famous Annapurna trail. Over the coming 6 days we will trek through rhododendron forests, Gurung villages, and scenic trails in the high Himalaya to the Annapurna Conservation Area before returning to Kathmandu to conclude your trip. 

Immortalize your adventure with a private photo session from renowned photographer, speaker, and visual story-teller Pete Longworth. All participants have the option of booking a private photography session with Pete. Additionally, Pete will be leading a very special Art of Seeing blindfolded yoga experience.

Selena is an energetic, knowledgeable and passionate teacher of yoga. She has an exceptional teaching style that is inclusive, patient, captivating and extremely well organized. Her curriculum is far reaching and demanding. I truly am amazed at her wealth of knowledge and feel fortunate that the universe led me to her. I would whole heartedly recommend Selena's programs to anyone wishing to teach yoga or broaden their understanding of this amazing spiritual journey.

I took my first class from Selena almost two years ago, and I still remember it. Why? Because during that class I had this moment like, "hell yeah" - I found my teacher. Since that first class, I've taken dozens of classes from Selena and every time, I walk away with a bit more... A bit more knowledge, awareness, spark, spunk, love, breath, understanding... every time, I walk away feeling a bit more alive. My asana practice has grown and benefited from Selena's mindful sequencing and every other part of my yoga practice (and life) has grown and benefited from knowing her. Selena is an amazing teacher. She's knowledgeable on every level you could want. She has soul and spirit. She is honest and raw. She's freaking witty and hilarious. She shows up and requires that you show up for yourself. More importantly than being an amazing teacher, Selena is one of the best people that I know. Anyone is lucky to cross paths with this wonderful human and I highly recommend that you do.
