About this trip

Seven days of yoga, surfing, meditation, and adventure right on one of Morocco's greatest surf breaks! This is going to be one of the most fun and self-revealing yoga retreats you can embark on. Are you going to be pampered in the lap of luxury? Absolutely not! But, are you going to transform and get an amazing vacation with interesting individuals from all over the world? You bet! This is a "real-world" retreat, where you can just let go and find your true, authentic self, while surfing amazing waves, growing your yoga practice, exploring Moroccan localities, and maybe a little going out! 

We will be staying at BoardxHouse in Insouane, Morocco, a vibrant, fun surfhouse right on the beach. To get a feel for the place check out this video that was filmed to advertise their student week. We will be doing lots of surf and yoga, but the schedule will adapt according to the wave conditions. Here, however, is what a day might look like: 

6a              wake up
6:15-7        Pre-surf yoga and zen meditation 
7-9             Surf!

3:30-5:30   Yoga class
