Morning session: wake up early to see the sunrise over the Atlas Mountains in the distance in our outdoor yoga shala. The practice will begin as a gentle awakening, building up to more dynamic poses – slowly building so that over the 6 days of yoga asana you find your body opening up to new depths in poses you’d never imagined; that you can settle in meditation quicker than before, that silence is something to be cherished. Feel energised and refreshed and ready for your day in the sun.
Evening session: Arrive at our fully equipped yoga shala for sunset yoga. Settle into a more restorative practice, to begin with, and once the deep rest has been satisfied with yoga Nidra and restorative poses, find more playful partner yoga being welcomed.
There are three meals a day included, lovingly prepared by local Moroccan chefs.
For breakfast enjoy fresh Moroccan coffee or tea or herbal teas and a delicious buffet spread of fruit, pancakes, Moroccan almond nut and honey butter, eggs, toast, different pastries and cakes and yoghurts.
