Morocco Yoga & Cultural Retreat, Oct 2nd-8th, 2021

Get ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime! Morocco is one of the most culturally rich and interesting places in the world. Morocco is defined by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Atlantic Ocean to the west, and the Atlas Mountains and Sahara Desert to the south and east. These features provide a diverse landscape dotted with ancient cities, expansive Argan forests, and stretches of empty beaches.

The Morocco Yoga Retreat begins in the culturally rich city of Marrakech. Nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, Marrakech was founded as a city in 1062 AD, and is world renowned for its souks (markets) and medieval maze-like streets, stunning mosques and palaces, relaxing hammans (Moroccan baths), delicious food, and much more.

From there we head to Essaouira. Nicknamed the Pearl of the Atlantic, this cultural city is famed for its rich music and arts scene, and was home to many famous artists and musicians in the 60’s and 70’s.
