If you feel like doing something a little different this October, then head along for a week to this Samudra Pure Yoga and Surfing Retreat. From the 13th to the 20th of September, you will be staying in a small coastal village, not far from Agadir, where airport transfers are only 20 minutes away.
The warm west coast of Morocco is home to quality uncrowded waves and a great place to learn or fine tune your surfing skills and with a guided Astanga yoga practice before breakfast and surfing action to fill the rest of your day, what more could you ask for?
Well, you could certainly ask for a local chef to be on hand for the entire duration of your stay to make sure your body gets all the nourishment it needs…luckily this Moroccan Yoga and Surf Retreat has thought of that as well!
It’s a chance to experience the vibrant Moroccan culture, and revel in the unique coastline where the desert meets the sea. A dream get away for all you athletic surfers and bendy yoga pro’s, this retreat includes seven nights accommodation at a new resort in Tagazout, on Morocco’s west coast and a two times daily yoga class with an experienced Astanga Yoga teacher. The deal clincher for this fabulous retreat is the daily surf session, professional surf coaching and all your equipment hire. Boasting healthy vegetarian meals, daily transport to a range of surf breaks and local guides and evening activity or cultural visits; this is one retreat that’s so good you’ll want to keep it to yourself.
Beginners have the opportunity to learn to surf at friendly beaches within walking distance and fast track their progress under the guidance of Qualified Surf Coaches.
