Incredible sights, fantastic scents and thrilling adventures make Morocco an excellent place to embark on a fascinating yoga ride. From quaint villages and historical cities, to traditional mint tea and the exquisite dishes of tajine and couscous, this jewel in North Africa truly honors the meaning of its name as the Land of God.

The best part is that this jewel doesn’t have to be an expensive one to visit. There are plenty of affordable yoga retreats in Morocco where you can spice up your practice with Ayurveda, surf, hiking and other activities even if you’re on a tight budget.  

Since the Moroccan coastline is home to some of the most renowned surf spots in the world, there’s a big community of surfers who take advantage of the great waves. That’s why most of the holidays in Morocco combine surf and yoga to get the most out of both worlds. And well, let’s say that the surf culture still has some of those hippie vibes that don’t require much luxury to have lots of fun.

Want a few recommendations? Here are six yoga retreats in Morocco that won’t break the bank!
