We’ve teamed up with our favorite meditation and life empowerment teacher to create a retreat that goes a little deeper than the rest. The first part of our journey we’ll adventure into the Sahara to tap into the healing powers of the desert, sun, moon and stars for 4 magical days. We’ll finish the journey with 2 days in Marrakech, integrating back into life as we know it in a nourishing and beautiful riad.
Are you ready to embark on an adventure of a life time? We hope so, because that’s exactly what this sahara / morocco yoga retreat will be. You’ll arrive in Marrakech and you’ll be shortly whisked away to the majestic sahara to stay in well appointed (but not fancy) desert tents. You’re teacher and guide, David, will take you through the rest of your journey once you arrive. 4 days filled with adventure, meditation, yoga, journaling, sunrises & sunsets, spectacular starry nights and the feeling you can’t replicate, being in the middle of absolutely nowhere yet connecting to a powerful source that feels like home.
You may be looking for a deep escape, a deep connection or have no idea why you are being called here. In any case, David’s teaching and guidance combined with the wisdom of the Sahara will be the medicine you’re looking for.
You’ll return to Marrakech to assimilate and integrate for the last two nights of your journey. Stay at an eco-chic riad in the Medina, enjoy our favorite market shopping tour and cooking class, luxuriate in the hamams and spas of Marrakech and inhale the flavors, spices and colors of the beautiful city that everyone is talking about.
