Moroccan Cultural Immersion& Yoga RetreatOct. 12-20, 2024

If you have been craving something that involves yummy movement and immersion into a different country's culture, this retreat is for you!
And I am SO excited to bring you on this adventure. 

Upon arrival in Casablanca, you'll be greeted with the grandeur of the Hassan II Mosque, setting the stage for an exploration of Morocco's rich heritage. Delve into the heart of Moroccan hospitality as you traverse to Tagounite, encountering vibrant artist cooperatives and serene Koran libraries along the way. Nestled in the Sahara Desert, Dar Talmoudi offers a sanctuary for culinary exploration, tranquil yoga sessions amidst the dunes, and enchanting evenings filled with traditional music and henna. The highlight awaits with an exhilarating 4x4 excursion into the Sahara, where you'll forge unforgettable connections with nomadic families and indulge in the magic of camel caravans under the stars. As you journey to the Atlas Mountains, marvel at the remnants of ancient seas and the timeless beauty of UNESCO heritage sites, culminating in moments of serenity amidst mountain vistas. Essaouira beckons with its seaside charm, inviting you to unwind with hammam rituals or horseback riding on the beach. In Marrakech, the bustling souks and historic landmarks offer a sensory feast before bidding farewell to this transformative retreat.
