We love to give guests an opportunity to follow their passion, or ignite a new one in a safe and beautiful environment with scope to experience the wonderful Moroccan culture. We truly believe that yoga is for everybody. Leave your cares behind and enjoy a slower pace of life during your stay in Morocco.

Yoga style and yoga shala

During your yoga and meditation holiday we offer twice daily yoga classes. The morning classes are dynamic and powerful, inspired by Vinyasa and Ashtanga flow styles while the evening classes are more restorative based on Hatha, Yin, and Yoga Nidra.

We have two talented and dedicated yoga teachers on hand to ensure you get a great diversity of styles during your stay. Our yoga classes are created for everybody. No matter if you are an absolute beginner, advanced yogi or even a teacher, our in-house teachers will make sure to fit everyone's needs and give you the challenge you want during your stay. Every morning and evening class is accompanied with a guided meditation. We want you to come away from your stay with us confident in a deepened and more expressive personal practice.

Our outstanding rooftop yoga shala is the perfect place for your practice, with 75m2 to give you plenty of space to really stretch and open up. Hand-engraved with Berber art and featuring huge windows opening out onto stunning views of the beach and Atlantic ocean, air conditioned and with a cushioned wooden floor you can practice in comfort whatever the weather.

You can salute the sun rising over the ocean and surrounding protected argan forests during your morning dynamic class and relax during your evening restorative class lit by the setting sun and candle light.

Food

You will be served a daily delicious breakfast and dinner along with a light and healthy afternoon snack. All our meals are inspired by Oriental and Mediterranean cuisine and are freshly prepared on site daily by our talented chef.

We serve a yogic vegetarian/vegan seasonal menu with emphasis on local and organic produce. Our dishes are designed to give you all the carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats that a yogi needs to get the most out of their practice and fuel them for a beautiful day under the Moroccan sun. The Moroccan kitchen is rich in vegetables and legumes with little diary so most of our dishes are vegan. Once a week there is the option to enjoy a fish tagine, but only if the whole group has no objections to fish being served.

If you have special dietary requirements/allergies, please do let us know ahead of your arrival so we can take care of you. Our amazing chef is well used to adapting recipes according to our guests needs.

Herbal garden

Our beautiful herbal garden at the yoga Villa allows us to serve you fresh tea and dishes with home grown organic herbs. All our vegetables are provided by a local eco-agricultural farm near Sidi-Ifni to ensure the best healthy nutrition for our guests, and our fruit comes from the local souk in Agadir. We use their own flowers to make our food look delicious. The food served is healthy and will ensure you the right energy for all your activities.
