8 Day Yoga & Sound Meditation Retreat near Essaouira, Morocco, from 3 -10 October 2019.

Its picturesque and historical sites tie in beautifully with the energy of yoga and the ancient practice of sound healing, creating the perfect backdrop for our special event.

It has a vibrant medieval history and is packed with historical sites.
