Salty Yoga Retreat
“The cure for anything is saltwater – sweat, tears or the sea” – Karen Blixen
Saltwater may not be the solution for everything, but it is certainly the solution for many things. And you will certainly feel a lot of this on your skin in Morocco, be it during energetic yoga in the morning or surfing in the afternoon. Do you want to escape winter? Feel the sun on your skin and the sand between your toes? Just let your mind wander? Then look forward to an active week by the sea, a trip to Africa, and to yourself. Be curious to get to know yoga in a new way: we will not only integrate Vinyasa and Yin Yoga into this week but above all the right one Pay attention to the posture to protect your joints and ligaments – you will surely get a whole new feeling for your asanas and your body at our workshops. Every day we look for a different focus from hip openers, backbends, standing and arm balances to inverted postures and leaning forward. But this retreat will not only touch your body but also your soul: together we will spend wonderful hours visiting the market and following a Moroccan cooking class, having touching conversations around the campfire, or laughing heartily while trying to learn Arabic words.
Also, discover new passions like the feeling of weightlessness and lightness when surfing. Whether you want to take your first wave as a beginner or if you want to hone your technique as an advanced rider, the beaches with the right conditions are selected for you every day – dare to jump into the cold water and dive into the wet element!
So that you don’t have to worry about anything and can fully enjoy this break, all meals are already included: before our first yoga class in the morning, there will be tea and dried fruit as a light strengthening, then a rich breakfast buffet with vegan and vegetarian options awaits you. You also pack your lunch box for the day and in the evening there is live cooking on the terrace with a view of the sea at sunset.
Our home will be the new riad from WestSurf, which, in addition to the family atmosphere and the warm owners Janina and Aziz, also offers a pool and a lovingly designed yoga shala. You don’t need to bring a mat, pad, or belt with you, everything is already taken care of. A wonderful way to get in harmony with the rhythm of nature, the Moroccan culture, and yourself. You will surely fly back home with more ease and awareness and certainly with a smile on your face.
