    "I had a lovely time in Morocco with Global Flow. Yoga and surfing is the perfect combination. All the teachers where very dedicated and friendly. Besides yoga, the teacher knows a lot about nutrition, that was very interesting. Further we stayed with a nice group in a luxury apartment, eating delicious food together in the living room or the big table outside, made by Suze. She was a really good hostess. I can definitely recommend this retreat, it was a great experience!! Thanks!"

    " As a young entrepreneur and father of a two year old son, daily life challenges me to keep my balance in live. My retreat with Global Flow and the surf lessons with Jalal enabled me to have an excellent first time experience with yoga, an inspiring week and a fun time surfing! It brought me to a wonderful place in the world. "
