(Re)treat yourself- Yoga & Surf retreat

ⴰⴼⵓⴳⵎ

Description

What is the one thing that matters most in life? You.

We invite you to treat yourself to a week of bliss; waking up to views over the Atlantic ocean, the sound of the birds and feeling the sunshine of the Moroccan winter sun. Each morning start the day with sunrise yoga practice followed by an invigorating

surf and golden sunsets. After a restorative sunset yoga session, cozy up by the fire with a book or watch the bright African stars far from city lights.

Between yoga workshops and surf lessons you will be scrubbed and massaged in a local traditional Hammam, learn the secrets of Argan oil fabrication and be fed delicious meals to keep you nourished and striving to create a the perfect wellness environment.

We often forget how important is to take time out from our routine and simply breathe. Connect to nature and sync into our body rhythm. It is so easy to get caught in the mechanism reaction and forget that we, as individuals, have a choice.

We have the choice to pause, check in with ourselves and decide on how we want to feel. How we want to treat our precious body and create the life we dream of, through conscious choice.

If this sounds like the perfect winter escape, be bold and join us for a week of self discovery in wild Morocco.
