About this trip

Join Souljourn Yoga + Alma Retreats for a cinematic adventure to Morocco that re-imagines "spring break" to epic proportions. Led by Souljourn Yoga Founder, Jordan Ashley and SJY Secretary/ Lululemon Ambassador, Lisa Bermudez for a magical 7 night/8 day carpet ride from city, to beach, and lastly, mountains, all while supporting Education For All Morocco, an organization that provides secondary education and boarding houses to Berber girls from the High Atlas Mountains who we will be meeting with. Our adventure begins in Marrakech, in the stunning Riad Zamzam in the oldest part of the city before heading off to coast near Essaourira where we will be laying out on the beach, stargazing, practicing yoga, and of course riding camels along the shore at Riad Rebali. The final part of our adventure will be in the picturesque High Atlas Mountains at Kasbah Du Toubkal where we will be hiking, going to the hammam, and meeting the girls from EFA.

Dear Jordan and SoulJourn Yoga team, What an adventure. Prema Peru was an action packed and exciting journey. Most of all spending time with the girls of Sacred Valley Project was the most memorable especially shopping in the markets, learning their culture and making them smile! I wish we could have spent more time with the high school girls however because this visit was planned during the weekday they were doing their studies. I also think the flow of events would be smoother if we did not do sit downs for lunch. This took a lot of time out of the days where there were activities planned. A solution could be to grab food quickly somewhere or bag lunches. My most favorite meals were at Sacha Munay, Cola de Mono & Sunday we are at an incredible local spot in Cusco that was delicious! The activities were wonderful from ziplining to hot baths to Machu Picchu! The beginning of the trip was good paced and relaxing with plenty of time to enjoy yoga classes and gong bathes. This helped to acclimate to the elevation as well. I found that there were too many activities which made it confusing to know what was going on or what to pack in the middle of the week. Highly recommend to stress lots and lots of bug spray when in the jungle. Many people were eaten alive! We also had one man down during the mountain biking which was scary and thankful he is OK. However would be best to include travel insurance into the price based off the activity levels instead of making it an option. Overall I rate 10 out of 10! Incredible experience to give back to the girls and to experience Peru. Loved Sergio our guide, Che Che our driver, and Raoul ! They were wonderful. Maybe good idea to recommend to bring money for tipping them as well. Thank you again! Wonderful time!
Truly an epic adventure. In the Andes, every day brings ever more breathtaking landscapes, but we also had the special opportunity to meet and interact with the people of this amazing country, especially the girls of the Sacred Valley Project who are getting the education they so richly deserve.

A wonderful experience with amazing people. I had the time of my life and can't wait for the next one. Souljourn is an awesome foundation and their retreats combined with the trip to girls home and education in Nicaragua made it truly unbelievable :)
