Ever feel like the world gets a bit too loud and it is beginning to drown you into stress and negativity? Well, this retreat is definitely for you. Find yourself in the quiet of the desert on the journey to the yoga camp on camels. Enjoy the yoga practice in all its forms without distraction. Travel to the heart of your practice and develop a new and stable yoga, which you can bring home with you. Quiet the world and replace it with the natural sound of nature in this retreat by Samana Yoga Center.
During the yoga days you will do the same asanas each day. This way your body becomes familiar with the poses. Although the poses are the same, every day your experience will be different. Eveline and Sanne will focus on one Vijnana principle each day. This way you get to know many aspects of each pose on the five days. The practice becomes deeper and you will understand better what your body and mind are doing. It becomes more a practice of your own, from the inside, pleasant and stable. Vijnana yoga makes your body strong and your mind focused. The silence of the desert helps you to achieve this.
Flight to Marrakech, Morocco in the morning. If you want to enjoy Marrakech, you could arrive earlier. Be aware that we meet at the airport in the morning and travel together with a bus to the guesthouse in M’hamid near Zagora, a beautiful trip of several hours through the Atlas mountains.
The journey starts on camels. If you cannot go by camel we will look for an alternative by car. Please let us know well in advance. There will be a surcharge. We sleep in tents on the way to the yoga camp. Those who travel by car stay one more day at the guesthouse.
Drive back to Marrakech through the Atlas mountains, one night sleep on the way and the 30th flight back home (book flight in the evening!). You can book the last flight of this day to Holland, or choose to stay at Marrakech some more. This is not included in the retreat price.
This retreat takes place in the wondrous country of Morocco, specifically in the mystic Sahara desert.
Food that will be served in this retreat will be vegetarian and made from fresh ingredients.
While this retreat will fill up your senses with meaningful yoga activities you may find yourself with plenty of time to simply reflect, relax and enjoy the pleasure of doing nothing but enjoying the beauty of nature and the silence of it all as well.
