If like us, 2018 was a whirlwind year (did we mention we opened a dedicated yoga retreat centre called Tamazirt by Amayour AND purchased an adorable building in Taghazout which will eventually become a restaurant, then 2019 is all about living with intention and a healthy dose of self-care. Simply put, life seems to be getting busier and time passing by in a flash!

That’s why we are curating five-night yoga retreats at Tamazirt by Amayour that follow the lunar cycles and allow guests to slow down, take some time for themselves and set mindful intentions.

From 16 to 21 March 2019 Bianca Capstick will lead us through the new moon, but also the spring equinox (link to more details once received and posted to amayoursurf.com). Pip Roberts will use the brightness of the full moon over the rolling Anti-Atlas Mountains where Tamazirt by Amayour has unobstructed lunar views in April to light up a five-night full moon retreat kicking off on 20 April (link to more details once received and posted to amayoursurf.com).  

We’ll rise with the sun during morning flow before tucking in to fresh and wild Moroccan cuisine under the blue skies then evenings are spent cozying up with a good book and cup of tea after a restorative yin practice. A wander through the weekly souk one day provides the opportunity to purchase locally-sourced vegetables and in-season fruits, and nuts, spices, teas and other superfoods we find in the area. Or stay closer to Tamazirt by Amayour and set off on a gentle walk among the argan trees dotting the Anti-Atlas Mountains from our. We also encourage relaxing poolside, journaling under a fruit tree or just enjoying the silence, punctuated by the nearby village mosque, from the rooftop terrace.

As always, we aim to keep our prices fair to ensure yoga remains accessible to all. Prices for a five-night stay start at 400€ / £360 per person.
