This is a fantastic opportunity to spend nine days exploring the beauty of Morocco. Expect a balance between a dynamic and passive yoga practice, great food, meditation, combined with exploring the landscape of Morocco. The trip starts with two nights in Marrakech. There will be time to explore this amazing city as we spend two nights in this magical location balancing yoga practice with the presence and beauty of the city.
We then we meander to Agdz, a small town located south of the Atlas Mountains. Here we will arrive at our retreat home, The Casbah Des Arts. An authentic Moroccan riad with ample character, beauty and dazzling colour. This riad exudes peace and tranquility with individually decorated rooms and a vastness that befits the surrounding mountains. Located beside a lush green palmery with a view of the surrounding mountains, this yoga retreat allows you to settle, relax and absorb the experience.
This would not be a Dav Jones Yoga retreat with some extra twist of adventure and inspiration thought up by Davin himself. Embarking on another amazing journey Davin will lead the retreat group, with the help of the Berba tribe, into the desert on camel back for a night under the stars. This is an amazing opportunity to experience not only the cultural heritage of this amazing location but also sheer vastness of the Sahara desert itself. Imagine practicing yoga here, eating traditional foods and meditating beneath the stars.
This retreat will be accompanied by Rachel Walsh, she’ll be sharing her teachings along with Davin. The foundations of Rachel’s yoga practice lay in Rocket, Dharma and Vinyasa yoga styles so it might be fair to say that (much like Davin), she likes to get upside down! She teaches a playful class giving plenty of opportunity to explore the trickier poses in a safe space where it’s okay to have a laugh if you fall in a heap on the floor! Rachel has a dedicated self-practice and shares workshops on this topic internationally.
Davin and Rachel will be flexible to meet the groups needs and to stay attuned to the present moment, but for those who require a little more structure, here is a rough timetable for what to expect most days:
