Yoga and meditation by the Red Sea

March 14 – 19 / 2019 6 days / 5 nights

Shed the layers of modern day life under the stillness of the desert skies

About the retreat

Nathalie Bittar, director of Blue Nile Lotus yoga studio in Khartoum, and Eszter are thrilled to bring this retreat to life and invite you to disconnect to re-connect, and appreciate the true gem that Port Sudan is!
This is a rare opportunity to discover the magical lands and waters of the Red Sea from within the Sudan, a north-east African country, where few have traveled. In the global economy, few locations are protected from mass tourism. At the Red Sea Resort, we will be greeted by Iman whose labor of love has birthed a simple and pristine resort. Through the Red Sea resort we will gain access to secluded beaches and uncharted waters. From this remote location we will move together towards stillness and invite deep relaxation back into our lives.
The retreat includes
  • 6 days / 5 nights stay at the Red Sea Resort
  • 3 freshly prepared vegetarian meals daily
  • Daily yoga and meditation class
  • Daily workshop (details below under Retreat Theme)
  • Bus transportation from and to the airport
  • Cultural excursions to Sanganeb Marine National Park and coral ruins in Suakin
Accommodation packages
In this retreat the accommodations are simple and comfortable. The resort was built by the people who live in Port Sudan, using locally sourced materials and in harmony with the environment. By coming to this retreat you are entering into a unique ecosystem. Here we will find deep blue skies peppered with stars, secluded beaches, gorgeous coral reefs and hospitable locals. It is through this immersion with nature and into a different culture that the layers of modern day life dissolve and we can simply be.
Retreat theme
During the retreat we will explore a theme called ‘relational yoga’. When we are on our yoga mats we tap into a deep sense of peace. Perhaps some of us have experienced stepping off our yoga mat into the world and feeling like the sense of peace  gets rapidly swept away. How do we integrate what we experience on the mat into our life with our partners, family and work colleagues? The gentle yoga and meditation sessions together with the carefully crafted workshops are designed to help us re-establish a connection to who we are while connecting to each other and to the world around us.
