YOGA RETREAT MOROCCO
ONE WEEK YOGA IMMERSION IN BEAUTIFUL TAGHAZOUT I MOROCCO
22nd – 29th of JUNE 2019
We’ve finally decided to offer a week long yoga retreat. To mark the occasion, we picked an epic location, with our own villa, pool, chef and yoga shala, on the Moroccan coast. This week long yoga intensive is designed for past students wanting to play with some new ideas, friends who’ve been meaning to try our take on modern yoga, and all of those who want a beautiful immersive week balancing both the efforts of yoga and the relaxing sunshine of the atlantic coast. So, come immerse yourself in transformative yoga and mindful meditation sessions while connecting with like-minded souls this coming June. Explore new ideas in yoga, conversations about modern philosophy and emotional intelligence, lots of chill time, and did we mention… lots of yoga.
OUR COZY MOROCCON HOME
Our Moroccan seaside villa is located just outside Taghazout on Banana Beach, the perfect place for yoga and surf. Just 40 min from Agadir International Airport, Taghazout boasts warm water, perfect waves and a uniquely Moroccan cultural experience. An abundance of restaurants and cafes adorn Taghazout with grocery shops selling fruit, vegetable and other essentials.
Our Moroccan home is epic with a lush garden, unique and inviting living areas, large outdoor terraces and a pool looking over Banana Point.
The villa is spacious enough to give privacy, while encouraging interaction in communal areas, it’s the perfect spot to escape and recharge. Our beautiful rooftop yoga shala is a perfect haven for a deep and unforgettable yoga and meditation practice. Encircled by glass sliding doors it has ocean views stretching more than 180 degrees to the ocean in front and the foothills of the Atlas Mountains behind. The space is naturally light and airy with wooden flooring and all the props we could ask for.
THE YOGA & MORE
This yoga intensive is designed to transform your body and reshape your thinking. Each morning we dive in to pranayama, meditation and an alignment vinyasa practice. We enjoy a break from practice during the middle of the day, with time for a self-practice session for the enthusiasts. Our afternoon practice is more interactive, as we learn about our posture, movements, variations and modifications to make our practice stronger, safer and more expressive.
We’re big fans of learning from each other, so, following practice, our conversation dinners encourage meaningful talks about the how’s and why’s of life. To finish each day we hold a closing circle and a relaxing meditation.
FOOD THAT MAKES YOU VERY HAPPY
We provide uniquely Moroccan, delicious, nutritious vegetarian food so you can enjoy maximum vitality throughout your stay. Using only the freshest local produce, our talented on site chefs make unforgettable food each day for you to enjoy. We also cater for any dietary requirements, regardless it will still taste delicious. For breakfast and dinner, we feast together on the terrace beside the pool overlooking the Moroccan coast line and (of course). For one night during our adventure together we head to town for dinner to experience something different. We love our local boutique hotel, Amouage, an affordable and delicious venue where we can eat to our hearts content. It’s a starlit feast enjoyed alongside live music, and the ride to and from the villa is on us!
