About the yoga

Morning yoga on your yoga holiday in Marrakech: wake up early to see the sunrise over the Atlas Mountains in the distance in our outdoor yoga shala. The practice will begin as a gentle awakening, building up to more dynamic poses – slowly building so that over the 6 days of yoga asana you find your body opening up to new depths in poses.  Settle in meditation quicker than before and feel energised and refreshed and ready for your day in the sun.

Evening yoga on your yoga holiday Marrakech: Arrive at our fully equipped yoga shala for sunset yoga. Settle into a more restorative practise of yin yoga and yoga nidra and long savasana to really relax and restore after a long winter.

We have an indoor yoga space if we need it also with heating or air conditioning depending on the weather.
