How would you like to.........
Go beyond conventional retreat concepts into new territory making unique lifetime experience.
Travel within the heart of country without the noise of a 4WD vehicle

Sunrise in vivid coours of South Flinders Ranges
Wedge tail eagle circling overhead
Make bonds with the companionship of your camel
Share yoga and cameleering spiritual practice together
Water courses and natural springs admidst arid conditions
Sleep under the stars on the hearbeat of the Earth and reset your biological clock.
You're in the right place
Invest heart beats to do something outside the ordinary.
10th to 16th JULY 2016 Yoga Walkabout
Your heart will open in ways you never imagined
in this time and space for personal insiration
Meditation space for you personally
Camel bells in the background of absolute stillness. Campfire smoke .
Sunrise streaks the eastern sky with a kaleidoscope of desert colours
Heart meditations with your camel and a chance to be in camel time.
Fun. Laughter. Companionship. Silence. Every trek is one of a kind.
For Kathleen Kate Wright on another tour the
Spiritual Adventure Walkabout 2014
was serious fun. To rest, meditate and write and take photos for a book she is publishing on her travels
She had never slept in a swag before:
"My very own version of TRACKS, first read the National Geographic article n 1977 and KATIE & Camilla
read the book while still in Canada!
and NOW just did the most
fab 5 day yoga camel walkabout in Northern Flinders Ranges, South Australia!
with Outback Australian Camels and White Medicine Adventure retreats.
A Profoundly meaningful experience,
I miss the camels so much, especially 'my' girl Camilla.
Thanks Tara, Russell and Mary for your inspirational leadership." Trekking Beltana Station
Mary says "Thanks Katie for accepting my invitation and it was a pleasure to introduce

".........yoga and adventure trekking?'"
To me the answer is simple. Both ask you to leave behind who you think you are and realize uncharted aspects of yourself.
To do both we must remain open to the present moment and trust our own resources to take the next step. We must also build a nomadic community that works in symbiotic co operation.
Yoga isn't just about postures on the mat in a studio or on a beach or in a park.
It is about how we live life. It's about finding our passion and having a clear vision to live our Dharma whole heartedly
An hour of power yoga in a hot room or learning to do hand supports in our asana practice gives us a demension of self to explore.
But to embody our identity -the study of yoga- trekking on foot in the wilderness with only our essentials is a part of doing that. Trekking leaves our mind free to embrace this.
We discover a whole new territory. " Mary White Medicine Yoga

FOR LORI trekking ALMERTA 2015
"Trekking with Mary and Russell was life changing for me. I came to the trek with a constant voice in my head questioning my abilities and always living in the “what if?”. I left at the end of the week with a clear head and a greater confidence, having taken the lesson of living in the moment from the beautiful camels and the spirit of the land through which we travelled. Spending each day practising trekking yoga, and simple meditation through campfire reflection and moments of silence during our walking, really gave me a sense of stillness and peace I have not experienced in years. My companions on the journey were people I had never met before but were destined to embrace as lifelong friends. Russell was generous enough to share his camels with us and trust that we would care for these gentle animals as our own, each of them with their own unique personality that seemingly matched our own. Many thanks to Mary and Russell for being so giving of themselves in organising this trip and caring for us so well. I am keen to go again!” 2015 Trekking Almerta Station Lori Korodaj, ACTs a
"Gentle giants with personalities each their own. Watching and observing their ways in the desert, their ease and slow, steady pace with it all was truly magic. The connection formed between each of us and our own camel is something I don't think any of us will ever forget! What an amazing journey!”
- Amanda, 2012 trekking Beltana Station Massage Therapist Riddells Creeks Victoria, Australia
FOR FUN this Amazing yoga group from Australian Yoga Retreats who were the first to do yoga on Lake Torrens 2014 were also the first to do a reality yoga camel trek show. I was lucky eough to be part of the event as apprentice cameleer.
Every trek is one of a kind and this is the fun that we got up to.
Enjoy....... And join us for your one of a kind in 2016 !!!
