Yoga & Surf Retreat – Morocco

18TH – 25TH AUGUST 2018 – SOLD OUT

Charlotte Wellfare and Liz Joy Oakley will be taking you on a magical journey with MoreYoga’s inaugural retreat at the soulful Villa Mandala in Morocco 18th-25th August. Enjoy a week of heartwarming vegetarian meals, two yoga sessions a day and optional surfing.

During this unique retreat Charlotte & Liz  will take you and your body on a journey through the seven sacred chakras:

Muladhara – The Landing of the Soul
Swadhistana – Go with the Flow
Manipura – Stir the fire
Anahata – Open to love
Vishuddi – Express our inner voice
Ajna – Instinct and working towards wisdom
Sahasara – Our final destination

Yin & Yang Yoga postures follow all the chakras in our body.
Attention will be focused on movement, breath, meditation and intention. An intense but at the same time relaxing retreat to bring forth the union of body, mind and spirit.

This will be a truly magical, heart opening experience.

Shanti & One Love
Charlotte & Liz xxx

Getting There

Flights are NOT included, and seem to be cheaper if you fly to Marrakesh instead of Agadir.
Airport transfers from Agadir airport are however included.

Travel between Marrakech and Agadir, it’s very easy, there are coach style air con buses approx £10 each way http://www.supratours.ma/en/, or you can get taxis, such as Grand Taxis which are kind of pool sharing Uber style.

Villa Mandala has nine tranquil bedrooms that come in a variety of sizes and themes. Seven of the rooms are en suite with shower rooms and toilets with the other two rooms share a large bathroom upstairs & there’s a further bathroom downstairs.

Mandala’s spacious, Berber and colonial style living area looks out onto the pool and Banana beach. It’s the ideal place to read and relax after a long day in the sun and surf or spend blissful evenings accompanied by exquisite food and great company.
