  • Sabine Klein

    Since 2012, Sabine is teaching a mindfulness-based, calm and precise yoga style in Yogastudios and private lessons in Berlin. After two decades of her own yoga praxis, she decides for her first training at Spirit Yoga in Berlin, another training in the traditional style after Sivananda, training in Yin and restorative yoga as well as yoga therapy. Basis of her teaching is the flowing style of Vinyasa Yoga with the emphasis on Pranayama and meditation. Yoga does not have a certain way or style for her, but is an individual practice path.

  • Gaia Ceccarelli

    Movement and body as an instrument to create harmony have always been an integral part of her life. Gaia studied classical, modern and contemporary dance for 16 years. Inspired by Vinyasa Yoga her teaching style emphasizes body awareness and alignment, focussing the attention on cultivating sensibilty, honesty and concentration on the mat and in life. When teaching, Gaia’s focus is to guide students towards having the confidence and understanding to develop a self-practice and to personally experience the transformative power of yoga.

  • Katrin Witt

    For over 10 years you can find nomad heart Katrin regularly on the mat. In the yoga practice, she found peace and strength from the very beginning – serenity and gratitude followed. The desire being able to pass that to others has initiated her doing a yoga teacher training in 2013 in India at the Ashiyana Yoga Centre and aroused her interest in yoga and holistic life approaches. Additionally it is Katrin’s heartfelt concern to integrate yoga into a normal life, to practice with fun and joy and to submit no overlying strict dogmas.

  • Füsun Folger

    Born in Istanbul, grown up in Berlin Füsun looks back on several years of own yoga practice. She taught on different yoga studios before she established enso yoga in Berlin Mitte, www.ensoyoga.de. Füsun completed her yoga teacher training at Spirit Yoga Berlin and at Cihangir Yoga in Istanbul and is teaching Vinyasa Flow Yoga. She has learned and internalized her clearly structured, powerful yet gentle style of teaching in numerous workshops with German and international teachers such as Patricia Thielemann, Dr. Patrick Broome, Zeynep Aksoy, Gurmukh, Bryan Kest and Rusty Wells.

  • Knuth Folger

    Yoga is a constant companion of my life, which always creates the connection with my body, which grounds me and retrieves me from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I always experience an incredible feeling after an intense yogapraxis every time, I experience how blockages can dissolve and the energy can flow unhindered again. A nice side effect is the healing of some physical complaints. My teaching style is powerful, challenging and focused. I was born and raised in Berlin, work as a lawyer in my main profession and live with Füsun and our children in Berlin-Friedrichshagen.

The retreat will be held in Marrakech, Morocco, the pearl of the south. In Marrakech, you will be discovering local treasures like spices, perfumes, handicrafts, carpets, and jewelry. Between the small shops, you will find tiny fruit and vegetable stalls where farmers offer their freshly harvested products, old carriages serving as counters for fresh and delicious bread.

Everything is surrounded by a bewitching smell. The whole city seems to be enchanted by drumming, singing, snake charmers, and storytellers. Calm and coolness can only be found once entering the very narrow streets. You will fin it easy to feel comfortable and at home in Marrakech despite its strangeness and you will be fascinated in the sea of seething life, bustling action, loud shouts, and the feverish, everlasting, and never ending circle of boiling life.

You will be served breakfast and dinner Moroccan inspired meals. Vegan or vegetarian meals are upon request. Please email NOSADE on your preferred nutritional style and also about any food intolerance.

Relax in a traditional Moroccan hammam or turkish bath and spa at an additional cost. You may also visit various museums, exhibitions, and sights. NOSADE will be happy to organize any additional activity.

    "I went to a 5-day Yoga retreat in Marrakech in December and enjoyed every second. The organization through Nosade was perfect and so a feeling of security developed during the entire journey up to the (wistful) departure. Already during the booking process organized by Anica, the individual wishes and needs are queried and you get suggestions for activities, which you can also book at the same time. Also during the stay Anica and Yidir are always accessible and can give another good (insider) tips for great places in Marrakesh. I was accommodated in the Chambre d'Amis. A very great, cute riad with a super friendly and helpful team. The roof terrace is simply a dream and at the latest at the breakfast on the same at the pleasant 20 degrees in December the sun is in the heart. The yoga praxis takes place twice a day. The morning session we did mostly on the roof terrace, the exercise in the evening in the fireplace in front of the open fire. The yoga praxis was simply super! Katrin asked for special wishes / goals before each hour, and then adapted the hour individually. She has a very pleasant way and you can follow her through the exercises. It also teaches to take borders and "take the drama out". After each end relaxation you felt equal 2 cm larger. "

    "Absolutely recommendable is the trip to the "Paradis du Safran", which I had booked immediately. Here, in front of the gates of Marrakesh is actually a small paradise emerged, which is definitely worth a visit. Just the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains in the background is breathtaking. It is also worthwhile to take part in the offered cookery course. I did this in the riad where I stayed, with the cooks of the riad. One could then gain an insight, we the two kitchen fairies the sensationally delicious dinner, which we usually took in the riad. A special highlight was the previous purchase of the ingredients in the souk. This I did with Maria, the director of the Riad, who showed me during this shopping trip so many great people and corners of the Souk."

    "5 days of yoga and culture in the middle of Marrakesh. In addition to 2 times daily yoga, one day visit of the main sights was planned. The city is really beautiful and Gaia taught her yoga with a lot of passion and calm. The breakfast and the dinner we ate together. The rest of the day could be customized, eg with a visit to Hamam. After these five days of Marrakesh, I was reluctant to leave and would like to go to the desert. Nosade, above all Ydir, who took care of us, did so very committed and reliable. He could be contacted at any time and also ask for tips. I'll be back!"

    "A friend and I just got back from a 5 day yoga retreat in Marrakech with Nosade. From start to finish, it was everything I had hoped for and more. The trip was very well organised and tailored to suit our preferences.The yoga sessions with our talented instructor Gaia were both energising and relaxing. We had time in between sessions for a guided tour of the old city, to explore and shop in the souks and even to experience a traditional hammam. The food was invariably delicious & fresh with some excellent lunch recommendations from Anica. We had really good company and left feeling like we'd made friends for life. Thank you very much to Anica and Yidir for a great experience. Can't wait to get back and try the Desert tour."

    "Nosade Tours promises to help find a path to yourself in Moroccos most beautiful & inspiring sights. Nosade delivers. I spent two of the best weeks of my life on a Nosade desert retreat. My fellow travelers were experienced yogis who could stand on their heads and put their feet in their mouths. I was a beginner. Nevertheless, the classes and accommodated us all. My Yoga improved exponentially and I loved also the camel rides there and back to the Berber Camp and the treks in the desert. All the travel arrangements were exceptionally well managed and the food excellent."

    "This was really the experience of a lifetime. Nosade really provides a personalized one on one cultural experience that you don't get with a lot of tours. Hard for me to pick a stand out moment. Between Yoga in the desert, climbing sand dunes, hand drumming by the fire, riding camels, or seeing shooting stars in the night sky above the sand it's really impossible to pick. In addition to the guides teaching us a lot about Moroccan culture the yoga sessions really taught me a lot about my body, and gave me tools to improve my practice even further here at home."

    "A friend and I recently traveled to Morocco, and decided to venture to Merzouga to experience the NOSADE desert tour. Incredibly glad we did! The journey there was scenic and adventurous. The guides and staff at NOSADE greeted us as part of their family and took very good care of us. Riding camels into the desert was a surreal, unforgettable way to get to the campsite. By far, climbing the incredibly high sand dunes was my favorite part... breathtaking. Especially at sunset! We felt that we got a true Moroccan experience, and I wouldn't have changed a thing. Definitely recommend to anyone!"

    "I was expecting a big group of hippy vegan women so you can imagine my pleasure when I realized you are all quite normal with a love for yoga food and the environment! Amanda is an amazing yoga teacher and you compliment her perfectly the experience has left me wanting more and I'm already looking for my next yoga retreat. It was a great experience for me and I'm so glad to have met you, I will cherish the memories for many years to come. I hope you're enjoying the serenity and beauty of the desert, and I've thought a lot about the desert retreat and the more I think about it the more I want to do it. Thank you so much for everything and please pass on my thanks to Yidir and if you're ever in London come and stay with me and don't worry I wouldn't expect you to provide yoga classes. Take very good care of yourself hope to hear from you soon. In the meantime I'm on the hunt for an Anusara yoga teacher here in London!"

    "We toured with NOSADE 3 days through Erg Chebbi, starting in Merzouga. Everything went super smooth, was well organized, safe and we had a caring team of guides. We truly enjoyed the trip through this remarkable country! Special thanks to our tour guide Yidir, who made our trip very special with all his stories about the Berber culture and his great talent for playing the drums for us at the camp fires at night. I can only recommend you guys to book a trip with NOSADE and would for sure do it again."
