location

We’re headed to an oasis in the Moroccan desert. An eco-lodge set in a utopia of immense horizons in the mighty Atlas mountains, the enchanting Terre des Étoiles, will be our home for four days. The camp provides it’s guests to take in the magic of its striking setting in unusual environmentally-friendly accommodation. With two pools for lounging and a sustainably produced garden for strolling, it offers the perfect location to completely unwind and immerse yourself in the practice of yoga.

[Absolutely still, seemingly timeless, the land was once long ago a lush succession of fields and forests. These lands, abraded over the years by human activity indifferent to the environment’s fragility, are today still support life thanks to the resurgence of a few springs].

** Please note this is Morocco’s rock desert, and not a sand desert like the Sahara

 

FOOD

At Terre Des Étoiles, the commitment to sustainability is even more apparent through their food. To push back against the desert, they and other passionate advocates have patiently laid the foundations of an oasis, which day after day sees its vegetation cover spread further. There are no long distribution circuits – from earth to plate, every day’s generous harvest of fresh produce is grown in their permaculture vegetable garden. Expect, seasonal, traditional Moroccan fare. We can accommodate a full range of dietary options including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free. You can let us know more about what you need when you book.

YOGA

All levels are welcome, but I do recommend coming to one of my classes before the retreat, if possible. You can read more about my style of teaching here. In this retreat we will be going deeper beyond the physical aspects of yoga. We will start every morning with a dynamic asana practice, cover various breathing techniques, meditation practices and cover more on the philosophy of yoga. Afternoons will include inversion workshops + self practice methods, and we will finish every evening with yin, finishing the week with an hour of meditation under the stars. Adjustments will be offered for injuries and variations for the more experienced practitioner. Everyone should expect to come away learning something new.
