Morocco Yoga Retreat
12th – 19th November 2016
We’re going to Morocco!! I’ve been dreaming about this yoga retreat since I first began teaching and now it’s here. I can’t wait to take you back to one of the most incredible places I’ve ever been…
Think hot sand, turquoise ocean, sunset yoga, warm water waves, nourishing food, total relaxation and great fun in our very own private beach front private villa. Bliss!
We’ll have 8 amazing days filled with:
- Yoga! Morning and evening. Dynamic flow sequences to uplift & glow, calming yin to unwind and open, guided meditation for calm and clarity plus restorative & yoga nidra for deep rest & relaxation. Gorgeous 🙂
- Relaxing poolside! Read a book…gaze out to sea…take a refreshing dip in the OCEAN FRONT pool…repeat.
- Healthy eating! We’ll have 3 fresh, delicious and nutritious meals every day full of nourishing local produce.
- Surfing! Whether its catching your first ever wave or an epic barrel they’ll be plenty of opportunity to have fun in the water.
