A blissful yoga retreat experience in the seaside town of Essaouira, Morocco. This 5 days yoga retreat will indulge your senses while nourishing all levels of your being. Come with me in May 2019 and be nourished by daily yoga, meditation, beach walks / swims, traditional Moroccan Hammam and getting lost in among souks and berber rugs, creating new beautiful memories with a group of like minded souls.
Daily life will revolve around rooftop yoga classes with panoramic ocean views, delicious traditional Moroccan meals, sunbathing on the beach or lazy afternoon strolls exploring streets full of colourful blankets, stopping for steaming pots of mint tea and watching the sun go down.
My aim is for you to feel strong, fit, healthy and revitalised whilst having a blissful time in Essaouira.
Come away and be inspired, Fill your yogic cup, rejuvenate your mind and body!
We will be tucked away at Essaouira, a seaside town about 90 minutes from Marrakesh that oozes peace and tranquility. Surrounded by golden-stone city walls, this charming town is still relatively untainted by tourism. Laid back beach vibes, fascinating culture and friendly locals, Essaouira has a bohemian feel and moves at the perfect pace for our yoga retreat.
Our villa is located in the heart of the medina, and only 3 minutes walk to the beach. Rooms at Villa Maroc are traditionally styled with a Moroccan charm - crisp white linen, shaggy berber rugs and patterned tiled floors. There are plenty of quiet corners to escape to; play a game of chess or scrabble in the lounge, enjoy a drink at the bar, find a sunny spot on the roof terrace overlooking the sea or simply allow yourself to be lost in the maze of prettiest little corners in this villa. I fell in love with this charming, beautiful villa and I am sure just like me, you too, will not want to leave.
20-24 may 2019
My intention on creating this yoga retreat is to challenge, deepen and progress your yoga practice whilst also allowing you plenty of time during the day to relax, reconnect with yourself and explore this magical place.
your yoga, twice a day
It feels so great to start each day on the rooftop with meditation & energising vinyasa flow overlooking the Atlantic Ocean as the sun rises, and to return in the afternoon to relax completely with a yin yoga practice. We may even venture down to the beach on one of the days and flow to the rhythm of the waves!
An example of a typical day in magical Essaouira:
0700 tea & snacks
0730 sunrise meditation & yoga on the rooftop
09.30 breakfast overlooking the ocean and Essaouira
11.00 your free time to explore the souks, get a massage or Hammam, read a book, swim in the ocean or do absolutely nothing
17.00 blissful evening yoga
19.30 dinner at our villa or eat out
You will sleep well knowing you have another day of yoga, adventures and fun ahead.
