Your teacher: Rebecca

International Yoga & Movement Instructor


Rebecca was introduced to yoga through physical theatre and performance. As a performer she was initially attracted to the physical side of yoga and how it could be used as a tool for creative expression. After her 200hr YTT in hatha followed by an additional 200 hours in ashtanga, she discovered a passion for creativity in different styles of movement disciplines. This interest was channeled into further trainings, including 200 hours of Yogic Arts with Duncan Wong (a fusion of martial arts, thai massage and yoga), 50 hours Tripsichore Yoga Choreography, calisthenics, mobility, and Kids and Teen Yoga Teacher Training where she is now an accredited Teacher Trainer. She has taught worldwide, in over 16 different countries across all 4 continents, most recently in China for Pure Yoga. Her own personal practice includes integrating vinyasa with contortion, mobility, calisthenics, and contemporary dance.


Rebecca also has a huge passion for working in social enterprise and community education, with a focus on inclusivity. 


Rebecca teaches with a rich interdisciplinary approach, exploring the importance of building strength to support flexibility using movement as a tool for mindfulness, communication, creativity and self-expression.


Class styles taught: Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga, Power Yoga, Yoga Dance, Core, Yin, Yin Yang, Hot Yoga, Wall Rope Yoga 

Your teacher - Kim

Having discovered yoga in her teens, Kim went on to qualify as a Vinyasa Flow teacher in 2020 with The School of Yoga in East London. 


A twist of fate and a leap of faith whisked Kim out of the corporate world and into full time teaching. You'll now find her throwing shapes and breathing deeply whilst delivering Power, Yin and Rocket classes across the city.


A self-professed "no-nonsense spiritualist", she strives to make this ancient practice accessible and relatable to everyone through her imperfect practice and vulnerability on the mat. 

Expect to be challenged and uplifted with feisty sequences sprinkled with her playful energy and philosophy to guide you where you need to flow.

The resort - Paradis Plage

 Paradis Plage is a piece of paradise nestled between the Atlas Mountains and a magnificent sandy beach that stretches for miles.


First Ecoresort in Morocco, Paradis Plage is a reference and a pioneer in the offer of sustainable holidays with an eco-responsible approach.


Located just a few kilometers north of Agadir, this haven of peace away from the hustle and bustle of the city, offers a relaxing beach holiday where you can enjoy many activities such as yoga and surfing or a soothing massage in the pool. 


This veritable paradise for surfers is also close to some of the best surf spots in the world; only a few minutes by car.


3 hectares of tropical gardens directly on the beach to "Free your senses".

The food

Organic cuisine and local products

The richness of the flavors of the Moroccan soil is put at the service of a healthy, fresh and fragrant cuisine, composed mostly of products from organic farming from a farm in the region, a pioneer in this field in Morocco. Thanks to the proximity of the adjoining fishing village, priority is also given to fresh fish, brought in every morning by small-scale fishing boats.


Vitamin breakfast

From breakfast, stock up on vitamins, muesli, freshly squeezed juice, pomegranates, prickly pears and other regional fruits depending on the season, or even various Moroccan pancakes accompanied by honey produced in the surrounding hives.

The Surf House at Paradis Plage Resort has been designed to become the real meeting point for lovers of board sports.

An open-air cinema, set up behind the surf center, also offers the possibility of watching films under the stars while enjoying the sea air.


In order to satisfy all your desires for board sports, from learning to finding perfect spot, the Resort team is at your disposal to accompany you in this activity and help you progress in the best possible conditions.

What a fantastic experience! An inspirational yoga teacher in Rebecca Hannah who led amazing classes & workshops, an incredible group of yogis who brought with them such positive energy, well organised activities in paddle boarding & hiking, delicious Italian food and beautiful accommodation at Casa di Sale, Carloforte in the most incredible island of San Pietro. Thank you Elisa & Yogando for organising such a beautiful retreat. When's the next one?
By Francesca J for Level up your PRACTICE on 22 Sep, 2022
Yogando Retreats review Yogando Retreats organised this trip very well, as it was almost an all forms of transport to get to the location (plane, ferry, shuttle, car), they gave us all the information we needed to get there. Communication was clear but perhaps all the transfers and petrol should have been included in the price so the only thing we had to worry about was the airfare and extra excursions. In terms of the extra excusions it would have been nice to know about them before we actually got to the retreat but luckily the spontaneous organisation of these excursions worked out. I was disappointed that we never got to do the breath work or meditation that was mentioned in the itinerary, as I was really looking forward to that part of the evening. Paola Pilates review Paola is a lovely young woman and I was a little concerned at first as she is a little introvert and it took her awhile to open up and talk with the guests, but in the end she opened up, and made people feel welcomed and amazing, especially after her morning lessons. I thought Paola's lessons were very good and I'm happy that she only used her music in the first lesson, because with the ambience of nature surrounding us she really didn't need music at all and her voice is particularly soft, so it was better to hear her cues as well without music drowing out her voice. Paola's abdominal workshop was a nice touch especially for those guests who didn't have an understanding of how to be aware and connect with their abdominals during a Pilates lesson. Casa di Sale review I absolutely loved this little rustic and raw Villa, it felt like home and Nadia makes you feel so welcomed into her home. I stayed in the big tent and slept comfortably but sleeping 4 days in a tent is enough for me. If the retreat was any longer I would have liked a room. I think the tent accommodation could do with some little bean bags outside the tent on the deck to sit on so you can read a book, or just have a little snooze, but swaying in the hammock outside the tent was very relaxing. If you are sharing a tent and the hammock is occupied, the other person has no chill out space other than the common area which is a beautiful space to hang out but sometimes people like to have their space so maybe the common area doesn't give people that space they need. Mosquitoes were only a problem the first night and once I understood to fumigate the tent before sundown I had no problems. LOVED LOVED LOVED the outdoor shower!! Oh and a pool would have been nice to have a dip in during the day and in the evening under the stars. Food review OMG the food was delicious, I wanted to take Nadia and Rossella home with me. It was so healthy, nutritious and flavoursome and I liked that it was more plant based and that there was no alcohol offered. A little suggestion for after the Pilates or a Yoga class that a nice glass or shot of some healthy juice concoction was ready for drinking right after the lesson would have been nice to give you a little boost and to rehydrate you. Excursions review Sound healing was a great experience, language barrier was a little off as I don't think they knew how to express themselves and their method as they were not fluent in English. I loved how it was performed under the stars. SUP was fun, 30-45mins would have been enough and may I suggest not to organise dinner in the town afterwards as it would have been nice to have a shower to wash the salt off but in saying that we were all ready to pay the 1 euro for the 20 second shower if they had not changed the SUP location point. Other comments Having Paola and Elisa joining us for the lessons, brunch/dinner, participating in the excursions and generally hanging out and also having them and Nadia driving us around the island was a real personal touch that you can't get with big group retreats so it felt more special, intimate and connected. We were also very lucky to have a great bunch of girls who all got along nicely. A truly special experience, and exactly what I needed. Thank you, Yvette
