8 Days Yoga Immersion Retreat in Taghazout, Morocco
About This Event
ONE WEEK YOGA IMMERSION IN BEAUTIFUL MOROCCO I TAGHAZOUT
We’ve finally decided to offer a week long yoga retreat. To mark the occasion we picked an epic location, with our own villa, pool, chef and yoga shala on the Moroccan coast. This week long yoga intensive is designed for all those of you who’ve been meaning to try our take on modern yoga, and all those who want a proper, beautiful immersive week balancing both the efforts of yoga and the relaxing sunshine of the atlantic coast. So come on, immerse yourself with incredible yoga, mindful meditation sessions and to connect with like-minded souls. Explore new ideas in yoga, conversations about modern philosophy and emotional intelligence, lots of chill time, and did we mention lots of yoga.
THE YOGA & MORE
This yoga intensive is designed to transform your body and reshape your thinking. Each day we enjoy morning pranayama, meditation and an alignment vinyasa practice. We enjoy a break from practice during the middle of the day, with a self-practice session in this time encouraged only for keen enthusiasts. In our afternoon practice we learn in a more interactive way about our posture, movements, variations and modifications to make our practice stronger, safer and more expressive.
We’re big fans of learning from each other, so after practice in our conversations dinners we encourage deep talks about the how’s and why’s of life, rather than just talking about the weather before finishing each day with a closing circle and our relaxing meditation.

Just 40 min from Agadir international airport, Taghazout boasts warm water, perfect waves and a uniquely Moroccan cultural experience. An abundance of restaurants and cafes adorn Taghazout with grocery shops selling fruit, vegetable and other essentials.
Our Moroccan home is epic with a lush garden, unique and inviting living areas, large outdoor terraces and a pool looking over Banana Point.

Our beautiful rooftop yoga shala is a perfect haven for a deep and unforgettable yoga and meditation practice. Encircled by glass sliding doors it has ocean views stretching more than 180 degrees to the ocean in front and the foothills of the Atlas mountains behind.
