Imagine this: Eight incredible women, hailing from five different corners of the world, coming together for a week of pure magic at our Women's Surf and Yoga Retreat. Let's leisurely wander through the moments that made this week an unforgettable blend of adventure, culture, and, of course, the soothing embrace of yoga.
Culinary Exploration in Aourir Souk: A Feast for the Senses
Our journey into Morocco unfolded gracefully with an enchanting exploration of the vibrant Aourir Souk. In the heart of it all, we meandered through a kaleidoscope of colours, sampling the finest tastes and immersing ourselves in the rhythmic sounds and rich aromas that surrounded us. Our morning culminated in a Tagine Masterclass, nestled on the Riad rooftop under the warm Moroccan sun, curated by the Sophie & Fatima.
After a delightful morning of haggling, we shared a leisurely lunch, soaking up the sun and absorbing the secrets of crafting the perfect tagine from the ever-inspiring Moroccan chef, Fatima.
Surfing Bliss and Sun-Kissed Vibes: Days by the waves
For most of us, surfing was a wild first-time ride. Each day started with a coastal drive to check the waves, setting up at the beach, and sorting ourselves into surf squads based on our skills. With Morad and Ismail as our surf gurus, we hit the basics on the beach before tackling the waves.
Mountain Oasis in Paradise Valley: A Breath of Tranquility
Breaking the surf routine, we ventured into the tranquil embrace of Paradise Valley. A scenic 45-minute drive through the anti-Atlas mountains led us to a haven of peace adorned with swaying palm trees. Here, we unwound under the Moroccan sun, took refreshing dips in freshwater rock pools, and marvelled at locals courageously leaping from towering rocks above us.
En route to Paradise Valley, we paused at a local cooperative in the charming village of Alma, where the secrets of Argan Oil and the unique Argan Trees unfolded. The girls savoured locally produced honeys, oils, and beauty products after a fragrant tour of the organic gardens.
Yoga with a View: Morning Stretch Sessions
Amidst the whirlwind of adventure, we embraced moments of serenity with morning yoga sessions on the villa's rooftop. Guided by the gentle wisdom of Sarah, these sessions became a sacred space for stretching under the soft sun, breathing in the ocean air, all while soaking in the breathtaking view of the sleepy village below.
Cherishing Moroccan Highlights
Our adventure wasn't just about surfing and yoga; ; it unfolded with the delicate artistry of a local Henna artist and continued to be adorned with the culinary magic of Fatima.
Every meal was a flavourful masterpiece crafted with love.
In a week full of fun, cultural dives, and moments to just chill, our Women's Surf and Yoga Retreat was a laid-back escape. Stay tuned for more stories of our journey – it's all about good vibes, exploration, and embracing the chill life.
