Yoga Holidays - Really getting away from it all

Join us for an amazing Moroccan adventure in Essaouira. Enjoy the sights and sounds of this exotic seaside destination and experience a truly colourful and exciting culture.

With warm weather, an exotic culture, amazing food and stunning scenery, Morocco is an exciting tourist destination enjoyed by many. Our yoga holiday offers an opportunity to practice yoga twice daily, improving your current standard and working on asana and breath, building strength and flexibilty and spending time meditating, while also enjoying the exciting destintation of Essaouira at the same time.

We start our day with a 90 minute yoga class, followed by a delicious breakfast in the sun. The rest of the day is yours and there is so much to see and do and enjoy. Round off the day with an evening yoga class and meditation.

Essaouira means ‘Image’ and from any angle it is a beautiful picture to behold. Wander around the old city walls, the ramparts, and take in the Atlantic ocean, the harbour and the fishing boats. Stroll along the sandy beach and take a dip in the sea. Eat fresh fish straight from the boats, and enjoy the warm sea-breeze.

Essaouira stands on a vast bay that sweeps south with miles and miles of golden sandy beaches and wooded hills. The colours of the surroundings are blue, white and yellow, the colours of the people, the medina and the markets vast.

Essaouira is situated on Morocco’s Atlantic Coast and has long been a favourite tourist destination. It is situated apx midway between Marrakech to the North and Agadir to the South and can be easily accessed from both.

Between classes there is so much to do. Take a trip into the desert and witness rural life that hasn’t changed much in hundreds of years. Enjoy some of the many luxurious and affordable Spas and Hammams for a variety of treatments from mud baths, massages and full body scrubs. Haggle for your bargains in the treasure-troves of market stalls and enjoy walks and swims along the sandy beaches. Take a camel trip, a horse ride or a Quad excursion into the desert or laze with a book in the Riad sipping mint tea and local delicacies and take daytime naps.

Wander the streets of the Medina, with market stalls, shops, cafes and restaurants. Experience a way of life of life so colourful and different to home, yet only a 3 hour fight away.

Yoga in such an exotic location is an amazing experience. Weather permitting we hold some classes on the beach to sunset. Situated close to Europe, but on the Continent of Africa, Morocco is like stepping into another world.
