Program

NEW YEAR'S EVE IN THE DESERT!

Discover the unspoiled beauty of Morocco and capture it in photographs. During this week you and Andreea will learn how to easily take impressive holiday photos. The focus here is on training mindfulness in order to find the beauty in nature. Andreea will discuss the photographs with you on a daily basis and give you useful tips and feedback!

Daniela will fill out the program with Vinyasa, Soft Flow, Pranayama, and Meditation. Celebrating "New Year" in the middle of the desert in combination will make this week unforgettable. The week is suitable for beginners as well as for experienced photography and yoga lovers.

Day 1: Marrakech

You will be picked up at Marrakesh Menara Airport (RAK) and taken to the riad. Here, you can make initial contacts with the city of Marrakech. From 3 p.m., you can take part in a cooking experience and get to know the simple yet healthy cuisine of Morocco. You will have dinner and get to know each other in a group. You will stay overnight in a beautiful riad in the medina!

Day 2: Marrakech - Telouat - Ait Benhaddou

You will practice Vinyasa flow yoga from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. After breakfast, you start the private desert tour from Marrakech in an off-road vehicle with a driver/guide to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ait Benhaddou. You drive through the High Atlas Mountains with the highest main road pass in Morocco (2,260 meters) and enjoy the breathtaking nature and lush valleys of the traditional Berber villages.

You take the route to Telouet (to Kasbah Glaoui) and then follow the course of the beautiful Ounila Valley to reach the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ait Benhaddou. There, you spend the first night near the kasbah. You will end the evening with mindfulness art. You will overnight at a kasbah hotel.

Day 3: Ait Benhaddou - Ouarzazate - Agdz

You will practice mindfulness art from 8 to 9 a.m. After breakfast, you visit Ait Benhaddou and let Rachid show and explain everything before the rush of tourism. Back in the riad, you will practice Vinyasa by the pool from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

Afterwards if you like, you can have lunch here and then cross the gorges from there. Reach 1,700 meters, from where the panorama of the legendary Draa Valley unfolds. Once in Agdz, it is worth visiting the Black Village and the Tamnougalt Ksar. You arrive at the hotel in Agdz in the early evening. Now, it's time for mindfulness art. Afterward, you will have dinner and overnight in a kasbah hotel.

Day 4: Zagora - Tamegroute - Mhamid - Erg Chigaga

You will practice Vinyasa flow yoga from 8 to 9 a.m. After breakfast, a dusty terrain takes you to the local prehistoric rock carvings in Foum Chennai before continuing on to Zagora to discover the nearby village of Amezrou and its Jewish heritage, ancient mud-brick synagogue, and silver jewelry.

The Tamegroute ovens poured the emerald green glaze that is so easy to see on mosque tiles, dishes, and pots all over Morocco. In the nearby Nassiria library, there is, among other things, a 10-year golden Koran as well as various contracts on astronomy, medicine, and Arabic poetry.

Before you leave the asphalt behind and face the Sahara, you are recommended visiting a traditional ksour and having lunch in Mhamid. From Mhamid, you reach the dunes of Erg Chigaga over various types of deserts. You can now turn to mindfulness art. Dinner and accommodation will take place in a private tent.

Day 5: Erg Chigaga

Sunrise, mindfulness, and breakfast await you. At about 10 a.m., you will ride the camels to the sacred oasis Oum Laalag for about 2 hours. Desert flow yoga awaits you there, followed by a picnic. The driver will then take you to some of the local nomads to get to know their lifestyle and get in touch while you have a cup of tea together.

Back in the camp, you will practice mindfulness art and watch the beautiful sunset together. Dinner and accommodation are like the day before.

Day 6: Erg Chigaga - Foum Zguid - Tazenakht - Taroudant

You get up early in the morning to admire the sunrise and walk through the dunes. After breakfast, the journey continues towards Hamada (rocky desert), where you cross the dry Lake Iriki. Here, you can drink tea with the nomads, then make your way to Foum Zuguid, and there you will have a lunch break.

You take the route west to the village of Tazenakht which is famous for the huge selection of Berber carpets. In the late afternoon, you reach Taroudant. There, you will practice mindfulness art, have dinner, and overnight in the hotel.

Day 7: Taroudant - Agadir - Marrakesh

You will practice Vinyasa flow yoga in the morning. After breakfast, the tour goes through the city walls and rummages for the best argan oil or honey in Morocco. A guide will take you through Taroudant, bringing you closer to the city, herbs, and culture. You will drive towards Marrakech and make a stop in the Bach city of Agadir.

Then, you continue on the highway, arriving in Marrakech in the late afternoon for mindfulness art. There, you will spend the last night in a riad in the medina including dinner.

Day 8: Marrakech

If there is still time today after breakfast, try to catch up on things you may have missed in Marrakech earlier. The driver will take you to the airport two hours before departure. Your yoga trip ends here.
