Invigorate your mind and body with a journey to the gems of the astoundingly diverse Morocco! Join Jahmelia Lindsay, a feminist and social justice oriented yoga teacher, for an adventure that will restore and rejuvenate you.
Spring is a vibrant time to visit Morocco! On our journey we will explore an urban metropolis, the Sahara Desert and the High Atlas mountains. We will begin with an overnight stay in the energetic and vibrant city of Marrakesh. After our inaugural sunset yoga class, relax on the rooftop of our riad with a cup of locally sourced Moroccan mint tea. Or opt to explore the juxtaposition of the traditional medinas and marketplaces with the modernity of one of the city's renowned contemporary art galleries.
Every morning, we will practice yoga before moving on to our next destination. Optimally, all of our evening yoga practices will coincide with the sunset.
On our second day, after our morning yoga class and breakfast, our fully escorted, private transport will arrive at our hotel to begin the stunning journey into the heart of the Sahara Desert. Over the next 4 days, our group will pass through some of the most stunning and sacred sites in Morocco like the UNESCO World Heritage Berber town of Ait Ben Haddou, Erg Chigaga dunes and Draa Valley. Each night you will have luxurious accommodation. Envision yourself under a blanket of stars while sitting around a campfire listening to Berber musicians.
After our time in the desert, we will nestle into the world renowned Kasbah Toubkal for the final four days of our journey. In addition to yoga, there will be the opportunity for guided hikes amongst some of the tallest mountains in North Africa. Our timing is perfect to experience a literal Arab Spring.
This journey is for you if you are seeking immerse yourself in a rich cultural experience of Morocco and to find sanctuary in your physical body through daily asana practice. Additionally, it is an opportunity to deepen your practice by learning more about traditional yoga philosophy and how we can make it relevant to our contemporary worlds.
