About the Tour
Each morning before breakfast we will start with Pranayama (breathing techniques) and gentle Yoga to wake up the body and mind before we embark on the day’s adventures. Site-seeing and exploration will be enhanced by our physical and spiritual preparation as we connect with ourselves through the practice of Yoga.
Each day will also include an evening session of Yoga where we will practice varied styles depending on our mood and energy levels. Sometimes it might be a more vigorous Hatha Vinyasa flow, other times we will practice Yin or restorative Yoga. We will end the class with relaxation, Yoga Nidra or meditation.
The program will be flexible to allow for participants to follow their personal interests as we embark on guided tours of major cultural sites in Marrakech and then travel through the amazing landscape of the high Atlas Mountains, Sahara and Atlantic coast.
