Timna Park - , Timna,
This is the seventh year of dressing the Arava with yoga. The desert invites us during its most beautiful season to take part in the yoga event of the year.
Throughout this magical weekend we will gather all around the Arava villages for deep yoga workshops with the best teachers in Israel and special guest teachers from abroad, while being embraced by the exhilarating desert landscape. We are looking forward to a meditative weekend in which yoga practice will gain a new perspective. In the main event we will gather for sunset yoga practice, an experience accompanied by live music, integrated with motion, and breathing the infinite desert.
So inhale deep and come and taste the yoga and the desert in one breath!
What is yoga arava
The Arava communities, including their guest houses, are inviting the world of yoga to come and visit for one weekend for the special event, Yoga Arava. The idea is to have deep practices all along the Arava, where each participant selects the suitable workshop for him/herself, the teacher that interests him/her the most, or the most interesting place to practice in, and stays in the selected place throughout the event. You cannot change teachers during the weekend; it’s all about going deeply into one workshop.
For one weekend, the entire Arava will be dressed in yoga. Practice areas with the best teachers from various streams will be placed throughout the Arava, from Moshav Idan in the north to Kibbutz Elifaz in the south, about 200 km long. The breathtaking ancient scenery, the sense of wilderness all around, the meticulous desert hospitality and the variety of accommodation styles creates a wonderful place for yoga practice. It is only natural that this part of Israel will connect with the world of spirituality, and together will bring the participants to new levels of profundity.
On friday night the participants will gather for a special event, The Night of Unity – sunset yoga at Timna Park, where we will have a powerful yoga practice with our special guest Yogini Kaliji , followed by an amazing live music performance, and finally Kabbalat Shabbat and a festive communal shabbat dinner in a unique location.
The event is a joint production of the Eilot Regional Council and Middle Arava Regional Council, with the support of Merage Foundation – fulfilling dreams in the Negav, the Negev Development Authority, the Jewish Agency, and Shutfut 2000. Yoga Arava is held in partnership with the Israel Yoga Teacher Association.
