YOGA RETREAT in Morocco October 1st-8th, 2008
For those who wish to deepen the practice and learn more about yoga than you can get from just weekly classes... And we’ll have fun too!
Yoga - practiced daily, you will really feel the difference.
Due to demand, I have decided to run a retreat this autumn.
Each day, there will be practices of Asana, Meditation, Pranayama and some investigation into dharma & yogic teachings and how we can practice yoga both on and off the yoga mat. We’ll keep a part of each day in silence. You will enjoy this.
We will spend the last day as a holiday to relax and enjoy other activities offered there before coming back to London.
It may be a nice idea to book a 2-week holiday to spend a few more days in Morocco afterwards, either at the venue or traveling around this amazing country. (If you would like to stay at the venue after the 8th, please contact the venue directly to book your room).
There are only 2 places left.

About the venue:
The venue, Surfmaroc is located in a small quiet fishing village of Taghazout, about an hour from Agadir in northern Morocco.
It offers beautiful Killer's Bay apartments and a lovely yoga space with the views of the ocean and mountains. For more pics of the accommodation.
They serve delicious, nutritious vegetarian meals.
There are many activities like surfing, walking, horse riding and other excursions for very Moroccan experiences offered at little extra cost. (i.e. £2 - £20)
About the flight:
Many companies fly directly from Gatwick to Agadir.
They are inexpensive this time of the year less than or around £200 for return.
Some of the cheap flights run on 7 or 14 nights basis and will be good if you are planning a 2 week holiday in Morocco.

*About the deposit:
Please note that the deposit is non-refundable after June 30th.
Before June 30th, £150 will be refunded.
If you can find somebody else to take your space then all of the deposit will be refunded.
**About the retreat:
The week will be a precious time we take aside to retreat from our habitual ways of doing too much, being “on missions” or cluttering our minds with 'un-witnessed' thoughts. Instead, we'll make space within (and without) to be quiet, so we can meet who we really are when we allow ourselves to "be".
Daily practice of Yoga will help us through the process.
As I always say, it will be light & open-hearted and fun but at the same time, very profound & brave...
I would like this week to be something like that and it usually is on my retreats.
All that in the beautiful location of the Moroccan seaside.
