Jolinda: About 7 years ago I moved to Jordan to work in tourism. A few years ago I quit my job, to completely focus on my big passions: Yoga, photography and traveling. I founded flow-spirit. For me, my passions really complement each other with mindfulness as a red line. Working with people is very important to me, it gives me the possibility to contribute on the well-being of both body and mind. In Jordan I teach weekly yoga and meditation (Vipassana) lessons, coaching sessions, therapeutic massages and Reiki treatments. Several times throughout the year I guide several holidays in mostly Asia and Jordan.
Jolanda: During this trip, to loves are combined into one experience. As a mindfulness, meditation trainer and tour leader I have practiced meditation and mindfulness for many years and deducted several workshops and trainings- in this area. My teacher training was done at Bridgeman. A down to earth organization, who researched mindfulness as a source and combined this with modern neurological science. My motivation is to pass on that what I’ve learned throughout the years: to help others make the best version of themselves.

Its also called the Rose Red city of the Nabateans. Especially when the sun goes down, the rocks get a dark red color. The Nabateans were nomads, who became prosperous by trading in spices and incense.
Today Petra is UNESCO world heritage site and more than 2000 years old. To get to the treasury, you need to walk for about a kilometer through the Siq, an immense valley. At the end of this beautiful walk you’ll find the Treasury, the most known monument of Petra. You can also find a Roman Theater, Royal Tombs, a Roman colonnaded street and Byzantine churches. Real hikers can decide to walk up to the Monastery.

Wadi Rum is also known as the “moon valley desert”. It’s one of the most beautiful deserts of the world, with spectacular rock formations, red sand dunes, old Nabatean inscriptions and beautiful valleys.
