Snapshot

This signature retreat will help you understand what and where your energy centres (chakras) are, giving you insight into the abundance of information each chakra holds on an emotional, spiritual and physical level. It will show you where to find the connection between physical ailments and emotions and help you balance, centre and harmonize your body, mind and spirit. You´ll leave the retreat energized, with a new understanding of the body-mind-spirit connection and with simple tools, you can easily apply in your day-to-day life to keep working with your chakras.

Each day we´ll be covering one chakra, to get answers to our questions from each of our energy centres, see the relationship between bodily aches and the mind, and learn how to balance our body, mind and spirit through yoga, meditation and energy work. The trip is a combination of travel, Hatha and Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Meditation and Movement, with an extra option of Reiki, Ayurveda Healing Massage, Kinesiology treatments and Personal Yoga Therapy Coaching.

Travel Guide

After meeting up in Marrakesh in the evening, we´ll visit the medina and the bustling Souk, have a typical Moroccan dinner together and set our intention for the week. The next morning after yoga and breakfast we set out to cross the Southern Atlas Mountains and the Todra Gorges, will have lunch in a little village and breaks for photos of the beautiful panorama, until we arrive at our first stop in Ouarzazate. Meditation for the night.

The following morning starts with Yoga and breakfast, before we continue our journey through the mountains, large plateaus and palm valleys to reach the desert. After taking a cup of the famous Moroccan mint tea and taking time to relax, we´ll have dinner and our first movement session. The next day is our day out to the Sahara desert! We´ll leave after breakfast by camel trek, to enjoy the ocean-like landscape and finally enter complete silence, without outside distractions. No internet, no cell-phones, no car noise! The day will gives us the opportunity to dive deeper into yoga, meditation, movement and our chakras, using the days to tune into ourselves and the desert. Relaxing Reiki and Ayurvedic Healing Massage sessions, as well as individual Yoga Therapy are available in the spare time in between (if so wanted). There´ll be plenty of time to simply relax, spend time by yourself or with the fellow yogi travellers, walk on the dunes, sandboard, contemplate the impression of not having any kind of walls around you, and to just chill in the sun.

After these two nights, we´ll get back to our lovely desert hotel at the footsteps of the dunes, where we spend two more nights, relaxing at the pool or optionally taking a trip to the little desert village. A meditation will close our desert time here. After breakfast the last morning we´ll take our trip back to Marrakech. The last night will be spend in a hotel in Marrakesh, saying good-bye to everyone, checking back into our intention for the week, contemplating what we´ve learned and seen, before taking our flights back home.
