As well as yoga, Sarah at Tamraght Yoga Studio also teaches Yamuna Body Rolling.
Yamuna Body Rolling uses different sized, inflatable balls to realign and create space within your body. Using your body weight, the Yamuna balls apply pressure to different parts of your body to release stress and ease pain, starting first with your bones and then continuing onto your muscles and tendons.
The easiest way to explain the benefits of Yamuna Body Rolling is by simply imagining the balls are actually the hands of a massage therapist and your body weight is the levels of pressure they use to massage you. The practise is globally recognised to promote effective self-fixing and body maintenance, whilst allowing the body to unwind and relax naturally.
Body rolling is designed for all ages and abilities. From the top of your head to the tips of your toes, Sarah will guide you through the session ensuring you and your body get the most from your practise. It’s also handy to note that Yamuna Body Rolling complements yoga perfectively and can be practised alongside each other regularly.
Yamuna Body Rolling classes are usually at 10:30am every Monday at Tamraght Yoga Studio. It’s also great for surfed-out muscles!
A Riad is a big, traditional Moroccan house built around a central courtyard or interior garden. Designed to protect against the hot Moroccan weather and provide privacy for those who live there, the traditional Moroccan Riad has become an extremely popular accommodation option for visitors to the country.
At Azrac Surf we offer our guests the experience of staying in a traditional Moroccan Riad. Situated just over the road from our guesthouse in Tamraght, our Riad has the traditional internal courtyard where you can eat breakfast, a beautiful roof terrace and authentic Moroccan bedrooms.
Traditionally either two or three stories tall, the Riad first became popular within the wealthier Moroccan communities and have since become a firm part of the authentic Moroccan experience.
At Azrac Surf we believe that yoga and surfing are married together in one crazy, body-positive union and after a long day of battling the surf, nothing beats a good stretch and unwind with yoga.
Here we outline, with the help of our lovely yoga guru Sarah, what poses are really good for a post-surf recoup.
A little introduction to Ramadan
In Morocco, Islam is the main religion and every year, Muslims all over Morocco mark the start of Ramadan, Islam’s holiest month. Ramadan is a month of fasting from dawn until dusk, evening feasts and a time for Muslims to share with and help others. Muslims fast in Ramadan to feel closer to God, whilst acknowledging the suffering of those less fortunate than themselves. Throughout the month, followers of Islam fast during the hours of daylight, focusing more on prayer and spirituality.
