Morocco Yoga Retreat.
September 16-24, 2018 | Sahara Desert & Marrakech
Move Into Stillness : Magical Morocco Retreat with Dagmar & Gaudan fully booked
Longing for magical nights under the stars and to learn about a new culture? I have always been fascinated by Morocco and visited the country a few times. I even build a house in Costa Rica resembling moroccan design, so no wonder I am super excited to share a week with you that not only explores the culture of the pulsating city Marrakech, but first takes you into a really typical, authentic experience of the original berber culture in the sahara desert.
We have teamed up with Sahara Yoga to offer you a unique experience, which is well organised, safe and authentic. Barak Oussidi grew up in Merzouga before moving to Germany. His family is still living in Merzouga and happy to let us experience the traditional culture. Barak turns our time into more than just a tourist trip to Morocco, he will make us feel home and touch our hearts with real stories and experiences.
What to Expect
We invite you to explore and enjoy yourself, as you surround yourself with beauty & nature. Take time to observe, reconnect and share with others…..
You will be in awe about the pure nature in Morocco and the natural wonders will take you into a different state of being. The magical surroundings will help you easily to let go of your day-to-day life back home and to find new appreciation and gratitude to simply Be.
You will naturally re-charge your batteries. Daniel has a special gift and unique connection to nature after living off the grid and in nature for many years. Being around him will ignite love and appreciation for nature in everybody he meets. Dagmar’s skilful flow will deepen your yoga experience. Together with the soothing melodies of the Hang we will create an unforgettable time and lasting memories.
Upon arriving and coming back from the desert we will stay at the beautiful hotel Kanz Erremal where we start our yoga program and learn about local berber culture.
Then we will trek with our camels into the dunes and spend 4 days/3 nights in comfortable tents in our desert camp (bathrooms and showers provided), under millions of stars with no light pollution. We will practice yoga, sit by the fire, share stories and listen to traditional music or enjoy the silence around us and do nothing.
You will be in awe about the beauty, ever changing light and colors of the sahara desert.
Our yoga practices during this week will help cultivate your intuition, your ability to listen and to be more comfortable with stillness. We will guide you to create and feel space in your breath and your body and most of it all : allow you to simply BE you.
So many times we are asked to be doing something, we like to control and fix everything and pressure ourselves to be the perfect partner, parent, worker….this retreat is designed to rebalance your nervous system, relax and inspire you deeply with traditional culture, food and nature settings. Sometimes we just need a change of scenery, to take a step back, to then move forward with new clarity and inspiration.
Our retreat is the perfect mix of stillness, magic and culture.
