Overview

What once was home to an oracle of Amon is now the popular Egyptian retreat of Siwa Oasis. This desert land is hidden away from the chaos of modern life. With trees, dirt lanes, shady groves, and springs. This time we're heading there with Layla Abaza for a tranquil eye opening Yoga retreat.
