Our first annual retreat to Morocco is a big dream fulfilled for us! We can’t wait to welcome you into an authentic Moroccan home in the village of Taliouine. This retreat is specifically for Black women and women of colour.
Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist cities of Morocco, we will have the opportunity to free ourselves of distraction and devote our time and attention to ourselves. Let us tune into our practice, our Sisters and our own energy supported by delicious locally-sourced food, activities introducing us to the local community and the serenity of being offline.
Each day we will begin with a group meditation before moving into a strong Hatha practice. After spending the day exploring the area as well as taking time for oneself, we will enjoy restorative sessions that include pranayama (breathwork) and Yoga Nidra (sleep yoga). All sessions will be led by Stacie.
There will only be a small number of guests allowing for focused and individual feedback and support during each session.
The venue is a private home owned by friends of the OYA community in the beautiful village of Taliouine. Exact location will be offered to confirmed guests ahead of the retreat. The house is exclusively for our guests on this retreat. There are a limited number of bedrooms and shared bathrooms. There is a rooftop space, where we will practice yoga – weather permitting. There is also a living room area for meditation and a communal open space for shared meals. There is no wi-fi available at the venue.
Taliouine is a 2.5-hour drive from Agadir. Flights to Agadir are restricted to certain days of the week, so it would be important to book your flight as soon as possible. If the group arrives around the same time, then taxis will be organised, so that we can all travel together to the venue upon arrival as well as back to the airport for departure.
Our resident chef will accompany us on this retreat! The aesthetically pleasing and tasty menus that you’ve come to love on our weekend retreats will be on offer here as well. The retreat is fully catered for breakfast, lunch and dinner with vegan, refined sugar-free and wheat-free delights. Please indicate in the registration form, if you have any food allergies or other dietary requirements.
Pricing from 565.00 GBP. Prices include all accommodations, meals and sessions. Transportation and external activities are NOT included.
