Mint Tea, Meditation & Magic in Morocco with Andrea Marcum
About This Event
With desert dunes, mountain peaks, ancient cities, and rich culture, Morocco is a destination like no other. This gateway to sub-Saharan Africa is a country of rich diversity and warm hospitality mixing centuries-old traditions and inspiring progressive intrigue. The alchemy of exhilarating colors, remarkable landscapes and once-in-a-lifetime adventures, woven together by Andrea's yoga and meditation practices make your yoga mat feel like a magic carpet. We begin in Marrakech, wandering through the labyrinth of medinas, enjoying excellent restaurants, visiting local artisans and dazzled by snake charmers as we imbibe the ubiquitous fresh pressed mint tea-- all part of everyday life in this bustling city. From Marrakech we're driven to the nearby Stone Desert where we sleep in gorgeously designed upscale tents. Our day starts with a yoga practice overlooking the extraordinary desert sand dunes and ends as we take in the night sky while camel trekking. Next, another short drive drops us off in the spectacular Atlas Mountains, North Africa’s highest mountain range. Here, we stay in an exquisite Kasbah surrounded by green fields, groves of olives, lemon, and orange trees and picturesque views of the nearby snowy mountain peaks. Day trips take us to provincial mountain villages. All of our accommodations are curated for their high-end service, location, and deluxe design. Every detail of our trip has been tended to and our retreat is punctuated by expert guides and unforgettable unique experiences.
