This October will be another first for Yak Trak as we launch Himalayan Yoga Trekking as a new concept in healthy adventure travel.
To kick things off we are flying over the incredible Gene Birks from Dubai where he is currently practicing as a professional health, fitness and lifestyle coach. He will lead us in fitness and health oriented yoga that will complement our trekking program and keep us in peak condition for the duration of the journey.
Gene’s credentials include a degree in Exercise Science from the University of Wyoming, and has represented Australia at World Cup level swimming more than once. Yoga is a part of his daily lifestyle and he will bring his enthusiasm and expertise on trek with us, showing us how to incorporate yoga and health into daily life.
The program has evolved as we get closer to the dates, so now we are focussing on Yoga Trekking as the core of this retreat program, with 2 days for arrival and acclimatisation in Manali, then 8 days yoga trekking followed by 4 days of rejuvenation back in our favourite little village next to sulphur hot springs. We will also offer Ayurvedic treatments, additional yoga classes with a local swami, walks to stunning waterfalls, healthy organic food and many more goodies!
