The retreat will bring you to a place of stillness, inside and outside. This stillness and calm is part of us, but we often times forget about in our challenging, hectic, stressed out day-to-day life. In the desert, with no distractions apart from wind and sunshine, you can finally tune into yourself and listen closely to your own inner voice. Settle. Breath. Relax.
It´s a combination of travel, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Meditation and Movement, with an extra option of Reiki and Massage treatments. After meeting up in Marrakesh in the evening (13th September), we´ll visit the medina, have a typical Moroccan dinner together and set our intention for the week. The next morning after yoga and breakfast we set out to cross the Southern Atlas Mountains, where we have lunch in a little village and breaks for fotos of the beautiful panorama, until we arrive at our first stop in Ouarzazate. Meditation for the night.
The following morning starts with Yoga and breakfast, before we continue our journey through the mountains to reach the desert. After taking a cup of the famous Moroccan mint tea and taking time to relax, we´ll have dinner and our first movement session. The next day gives us the opportunity to dive deeper into different workshops of yoga, meditation and body movement, using the day to tune into ourselves and the theme of the desert. Relaxing Reiki and Ayurvedic Healing Massage sessions are available in the spare time in between (if so wanted). The next day is our day out to the desert! We´ll leave after breakfast by camel trek, to enjoy the beautiful landscape and finally enter complete silence, without outside distractions. No internet, no cell-phones, no car noise! We`ll stay two nights, deepen our practice in diverse Vinyasa Flow and Hatha Yoga classes and movement / body workshops and meditation, take time for ourselves to walk on the dunes, contemplate the beautiful soft landscape and clear sky, or just chill in the sun.
After these two nights, we´ll spend another relaxing day with workshops or just lounging at the pool at the hotel. After breakfast the next morning we´ll take our trip back to Ouarzazate. The last night will be spend in a hotel in Marrakesh (20th September), saying good-bye to everyone, checking back into our intention for the week, contemplating what we´ve learned and seen, before taking our flights back home.
