ITINERARY

Bagan Blessings and Sunset Yoga - Half Day

Start today’s tour at 14:00.

Get in touch with your spiritual side in an ancient city filled with thousands of temples. The journey begins with a transfer to Nat Htaung Monastery in Taung Bi Village. This is a picturesque monastery close to the Irrawaddy River. Participate in a traditional blessing ceremony with one of the resident monks.

Such ceremonies are an important part of Myanmar’s religious culture. Many people regularly visit their local monastery to receive blessings before significant moments in their lives, such as marriage and the birth of a new child. During this experience feel the positive energy of the ceremony and gain a better understanding of Buddhist culture. After the ceremony enjoy some tea and traditional Burmese snacks within the compound of the monastery.

Feeling blessed, it is now time to head to a nearby jetty for the boat transfer to a river island on the Irrawaddy at 16:30 (subject to change depending on sunset time). This will be the location for a one hour private sunset yoga class. The class is organised by the pioneer professional yoga studio in Bagan. Full equipment (mats, blocks, straps, towels) will be provided. Participants are led by certified yoga teachers from a variety of teaching background - Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin Yang Yoga. (Note: River island yoga is only available from October to April, indoor classes at a yoga shala can be arranged at other times of the year).

The class is suitable for all levels and the beautiful surroundings provide the ideal backdrop for healthy yoga exercises. Benefit from the opportunity to learn some new moves and techniques to take back home and share with fellow yoga friends.

After an afternoon of mental and physical spirituality it is time to return to the hotel.

Socially Responsible Travel: The organisers of the classes provide free sessions for local people and at local schools to introduce yoga to Myanmar.
