Morocco: Wild Essouaira
17th - 21st March 2024
You are invited to join me to celebrate the Spring Equinox and to discover the raw and wild coast of Morocco.
We will meet twice daily for yoga and mealtimes with plenty of space to relax in cosy corners or explore the local surroundings and immerse in the culture.
We are situated 25mins from Essaouira, the famous fishing town or bask in nature exploring the beaches and surrounding forests.
Our venue is an eco-lodge on a dramatic stretch of Atlantic coast in Morocco, just north of Essaouira. Set amidst and heavily involved with two small fishing & farming communities, this kasbah of rock, earth and lime offers a unique and ecologically engaging experience.
Situated at the foot of a forested hillside and a 10 minute walk from the beach, the house enjoys some of the finest views in the region. From every window there is woodland or ocean, or Essaouira itself, just visible beyond a patchwork of fields and honey-coloured stone walls, and a long, sweeping, deserted beach.
Our twice daily Yoga will take place in the new purpose built Yoga Temple or stunning rooftop.
Mornings consist of longer, dynamic and explorative morning embodied flow practice and afternoons a combination of restorative, meditative & contemplative practices.
A typical day on retreat:
8.30am Yoga practice
10am Delicious Moroccan Breakfast
free time to beach, relax or explore
free time to beach, relax or explore/excursions
5.30pm evening practice
Our Essaouira-based chef specialises in vegetarian menus with a ‘wild garden’ theme, using locally sourced products. Her delicious dishes and smoothies are a celebration of colour and texture.
Eating together is an intimate experience; beautiful food with beautiful people in a beautiful setting. The dining table not only has views out over both the courtyard and kitchen garden but sits in the middle of a 22m long, open plan space stretching from the kitchen door to the north wing.
Roam the wild coastline, visit Essoeuira, go surfing, kitesurfing or horse riding or simply relax in one of the cosy corners of the lodge and rest the days away.
