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 Garefino began practicing yoga when she was 13 years old. Yoga has been and continues to be for Selena, a vehicle for learning to shift from habitual emotional and behavior tendencies towards serving highest possibility. Selena completed her first vinyasa training with Core Power Yoga. She went on to study with Sarah Powers, Melina Meza, Anne Phyfe, Nicolai Bachman, Elena Brower, Douglas Brooks, Rod Stryker, and Noah Mazé. She has studied Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Pre-natal and Postpartum Yoga, Vinyasa, and Hatha Yoga. Selena is dedicated to teaching movement through artful alignment to support her students on and off of their mats. Her classes offer yoga and meditation as a mechanism to shift the way we offer ourselves in all aspects of our lives and as a tool for granting profound healing in our bodies, our hearts, and ultimately our relationships. Selena is a PhD Candidate in South Asian Anthropology. And holds an MPH in International Health.


Selena is steeped in knowledge, compassion, and the art of teaching. I absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to deepen their practice and their way of thinking.
Every training I feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information presented wondering if I'm going to retain any of it. The next class I teach though, I feel more confident, more present. After every training I feel like I have more to offer my students. That's a feeling you can't buy.
By Kyra Hall for Ari Halbert Master Class on Mar 08, 2020
I want to personally thank Selena Garefino for providing an amazing immersive experience. I booked this program not knowing what was involved, nor expecting to ever teach a yoga class, my goal was to grow my personal home practice. Thank you for helping me do that, challenging my comfort zones, and opening my eyes to so much more. I still don't know if I will ever teach a yoga class, but I do know without a doubt that the option is now well within reach. I feel I have only scratched the surface of my yoga journey, so I definitely will be pursuing additional yoga trainings and retreats, as well as different schools of yoga moving forward. On my personal journey of knowledge and self exploration I am beyond grateful to have crossed paths with Selena Garefino and for the opportunity to learn from her and Hali Love. I truly feel blessed to have met both of these amazing women and to have shared this unique experience with a limitless group of women from all over the world.
It was a great training as usual Selena delivered. Space we practiced was lovely. Thanks
Such a great experience. I gained so much knowledge and walked away with tools that I can easily apply in my day to day life and practice. Thank you for time, energy and space.
