Venue Highlights

Tamazirt is a stunning villa in the hills of Agouni, a rural Berber village only minutes away from the coastal villages of Taghazout and Tamraght. It is the first dedicated retreat space and tourist accommodation in the area, boasting a double terrace that overlooks rural Morocco and the Atlantic ocean.
Tamazirt’s location is idyllic: it’s peaceful, tranquil and calm. Close enough to the beaches and excitement of Taghazout, yet far enough away to really get close to nature. The only passing traffic is the occasional herd of goats.
Taghazout, famous for its fishing and surfing opportunities, is a 10-minute drive away. Agadir is less than 20km away. The Artists’ quarter of Essaouira is 2.5 hours and The Red city Marrakech 3.5 hours away.
The nearest airports are Agadir International (49 km or a one hour drive) and Essaouira International (two hours) and Marrakech (approximately three hours away).

  • Michelle Slade   August 29, 2018

      Warm and welcoming

    I’ve had the pleasure of taking lessons from Alex, as well as being a massage therapy patient and it’s been a fantastic experience every time. She has a warm and nurturing nature to her.... her presence is calming and welcoming. You can tell from her classes that she is not only very knowledgeable but also passionate about her profession. I seek out her classes, and will continue to do so. Highly recommend!!!

  • Brandi Rae   August 27, 2018

      Yoga Chica!

    I have had the pleasure of a few yoga classes with Alex. She was very helpful with showing proper alignment, as she knows the body well! Alex is a patient and caring person, that I know well as a registered massage therapist and now with yoga. I look forward to seeing her always! Can't wait till we see each other next time for some yoga!! 😄

  • Meeghan Noëlle   August 17, 2018

      Multifaceted personable yoga instructor.

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Alexandra and learning from her for many years. Her gentle and strong approach to yoga is unparalleled. Her knowledge of human anatomy provides her with the capacity to not only give great adjustments but also helps students with a little more perspective when it comes to practice and their personal bodies. She is very personable, passionate and connected and would be an amazing teacher for anyone looking to find a great teacher with a multifaceted approach.

  • Anne-Diandra Louarn-Dollat   August 17, 2018

      Excellent!

    We took our Yoga teacher training together a few years ago, Alex is amazing! Very soft and generous in her teachings. She knows how to adapt to various levels and big bonus point: she’s a great massage therapist! 💕

  • Amaloa Mehrer   August 16, 2018

      The best one!!!

    Excellent Yoga teacher, I feel connected every time I attend an Alex class.

  • Bhreagh MacDonald   August 16, 2018

      Absolutely fantastic teacher

    Tessa’s innate positive energy is contagious and it transcends into her practice. The flow of her practice is like fluid, her instruction is concise and easy to follow. Tessa makes it easy to turn your brain off, focus on your breath and get lost in movement. I always leave her class feeling relaxed and refreshed. I only have great things to say about Tessa and her yoga classes.

  • Christina Lokmann Iversen   August 16, 2018

      An amazing yoga experience

    In my approximately 300 experiences of yoga, my experience with Tessa was the best. Most of all because of her way of connecting with people and her very present way of teaching. Also she has a very pleasant voice!

  • Matoof M. Khan   August 16, 2018

      Amazing yoga teacher

    The best yoga teachers are those who don't only teach yoga, but also practice it. Tessa is an amazing caring and positive person and teacher! I can only recommand to go with her!

  • Michelle Soper-Maure   August 16, 2018

      Tessa

    Tessa is such a caring and warm hearted soul and her beautiful energy shines through when she teaches. She is very knowledgeable and has a diverse background which just adds to her teaching. I love how patient she is, and her ability to connect with all of her students regardless of level or experience. You will most certainly grow in your practice through this retreat- Tessa is simply wonderful!!!

  • Nikolaj Kirk Jordansen   August 16, 2018

      My 1st experience with yoyga

    For me as a newcomer with yoga I found Tessa to be welcoming, mild and warm. She put together the combination of exercises that she thought would fit me the best and it was a tough but very fresh experience :-) I would recommend experiencing yoga with Tessa as your teacher to everyone!

  • Raquel Salvador   August 16, 2018

      Amazing teacher! inspiring.

    I have spent sometime with Tessa and she is a very special person and yoga teacher, enthusiastic and supportive each student, maintaining a professional but compassionate way of teaching. She is prompt, organized, and always good at teaching each student with patience along with a solid knowledge of the foundations of yoga. She guides her students in building awareness of proper form and breathing in the yoga poses.. She is especially good at organizing her classes to accommodate the varied expertise levels that one may find when teaching classes and lead students though an enjoyable and safe class. I am consistently impressed with her dedication and gentle compassion. Amazing teacher! Raquel Salvador

  • Sheena Amirault   August 16, 2018

      Alex is awesome!

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Alex for 15 years. We met studying Massage Therapy together and have been close ever since. I have watched her grow from a passionate RMT into a committed and knowledgeable yoga instructor. I have practiced with her and studied from her and her energy is always a pleasure to be around. She has a calm and soothing approach to all that she does and is extremely educated in her practice of yoga. Her combination of clinical human body movement with her yoga education makes for a great fit. I have no doubt that anyone that learns from her will leave satisfied, and with a heightened experience all around. I highly recommend Alex as an instructor and as a life long friend!

  • Shontell Jennifer Helen Mita   August 15, 2018

      Gentle and strong

    I love Alexandra's approach to teaching, she is gentle and has a cool calm voice, which I find relaxing when in a yoga class. I enjoy her hatha class at Dude Chilling park focusing on alignment with a smooth flow of movement, building warmth and strength. I look forward to my next class with Alexandra. Thank you, Namaste.

  • Juan Pablo González   August 15, 2018

      Great vibes

    Alexandra is a great teacher who is passionate about yoga as a whole. Her classes at Dude Chilling Park are the best!

  • Johan Tino Frederiksen   August 15, 2018

      Among the best yoga-teachers I've met

    The yoga teaching from Tessa is among the best I've experienced during my 17 years doing yoga. Her presence in the class is sincere, dedicated and with clear instructions. While maintaining this focus she also meet the individual needs from the participants. I give Tessa my warmest recommendations.

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
