Travel is about the gorgeous feeling of teetering in the unknown.
Two well-travelled and highly experienced yoga teachers Nikki and Janel are collaborating in this once in a lifetime trip. These ladies have grown up in opposite ends of the earth but a few things core believes unite them;
Working with World Ex. we’ve designed a magnificent trek in the Annapurna Region with daily yoga, meditation and Thai massage.
You get 15 days to disconnect from stress and reconnect to self through travel, hiking, and yoga in Nepal. Explore sights, sounds and smells wandering through Kathmandu. Trek for 11 days through lush mountain trails, reaching heights of 4,600m while enjoying the comforts of warm meals in our private eco-camps and eco-lodges all while coming home to yourself daily with yoga and meditation.
A warm welcome from Nikki & Janel!
We are excited to be leading you on a yogi’s adventure through Nepal – one of the most amazing countries to visit on earth! Our intention for this trip is that we help you reconnect more deeply with yourself. Clear your mind with daily mediation, yoga and hiking. Relax your body with Thai Yoga Massage and Yin Yoga and experience the simple pleasures of connecting with earth and like-minded people as we adventure into the unknown.
Janel is an avid explorer of the outer and inner realms and is excited to share her passions for travel, yoga, and hiking with you, trusting that the journey will change each of us. She says; “when we travel, we rediscover wonder, we see the world with new eyes, open our minds, and expand our hearts. When we walk in nature, we are immersed in the present moment, feeling truly alive.
When we practice yoga and meditation, we come home to ourselves, generating peace, and compassion to see clearly, feel deeply, love abundantly, and live with intention.”
Janel’s journey has taken her to 35 countries and counting, to climb the Rockies, Himalayas and Kilimanjaro, to practice yoga and meditation with many teachers in many places and to study the healing arts of Thai massage and Reiki.
Janel is a yoga teacher and holistic healing arts practitioner offering yoga, meditation, breathwork, reiki, massage, doula, and integrative nursing services. She is a certified yoga teacher (RYT-500), reiki practitioner (level 1), birth doula (DONA), and family nurse practitioner (FNP-BC).
Until recently Nikki was a corporate marketer, working a stressful 50 hour week. Now she runs The Happy Living Project, a corporate yoga and wellness business in Sydney. Nikki believes that yoga and meditation is medicine for the body and mind. Yoga teaches us to better connect with ourselves, others and nature. In that way, yoga is the perfect pairing with outdoor adventure.
“I’m passionate about getting people of all shapes, sizes and abilities nurturing their body, mind and spirit. This trip is an opportunity to strip all the stress away. Get back to basics. Walk in the wild. Feel the earth each morning when we rise with the sun. Talk with strangers as we wander and fall in love with yourself and the magic of life again and again.”
Nikki is a certified vinyasa yoga teacher (RYT-500) and 100 hr yin yoga teacher, 25 hour Fertility Yoga teacher and she has trained with a number of international and local yoga teachers. She brings a smile and cheeky sense of humour to all she does.
Combined these two ladies have a wealth of knowledge in yoga and healing. Each has travelled to Nepal and can attest to her beauty. They both believe that this journey and the group that will come together will truly be special.
