6 Days All Inclusive Yoga & Volunteer Retreat in Morocco

About This Event

If you are all about empowering yourself while lifting others, escape with 109 World and Ambre Van de Berg to Marrakech this May 23-28, 2019! This journey will allow us to explore the beautiful culture of Morocco, practice yoga and meditation all while supporting important local educational & empowering programs for women & teenage girls in Marrakech.

Why women and teenage girls? Because in Morocco they are often ostracized from society and have little opportunity in life if they are from disadvantaged backgrounds (widows, divorcees, single mothers, orphans, women with little education, etc.). Our goal on this trip is to learn more and support two incredible organizations providing opportunities for these women: Project Soar and the Henna Café. Join us and spend this week nourishing your mind & body, all while giving back to the local community of Marrakech and immersing into the culture!

This trip is an incredible buffet of love, compassion, service, meditation, yoga, and mental and spiritual awakening

Equipped with a beautiful rooftop terrace where we will practice yoga, a traditional Moroccan spa (Hammam), and dipping pool located at the center of the courtyard – we will be in pure bliss throughout our stay. We can’t wait to call this little paradise home for the week!
