Morocco Manifestations Yoga Retreat with Travis Eliot and Lauren Eckstrom

March 11th – 17th, 2018

Join Travis & Lauren on a retreat to the country that makes the soul grow. Morocco has a vibrancy of culture that touches you in so many ways – including the food, the design, the music, and the people. Open your mind and take the path less travelled. Reignite your soul with us!

While on this retreat, Lauren & Travis will teach their personally-developed style of yoga, Holistic Yoga Flow: The Path of Practice. Classes will be an in-depth journey through the philosophy & practice of yoga and include guidance on how to implement this into your daily life.

On this retreat you’ll receive twice daily yoga classes with Travis & Lauren, and two planned excursions/extras. We will leave you seeing all of the sides of Marrakech we LOVE.

We are taking yoga out of the studio! On this day adventure we head to the Atlas Mountains following the Ourika Valley. This experience is about learning about the Berber heritage and seeing the stunning landscape of the Marrakech countryside. Bring your yoga mat! We are heading to a family Berber house overlooking a local traditional village and with a stunning view of the Toubkal mountain (4165 m alt ) and the Atlas range. There is an awesome yoga deck that we will do some meditation and stretching before we are served a traditional Moroccan meal. After lunch, we will have the opportunity to walk around a traditional Berber village and soak in the landscape.

After lunch we head back to Marrakech via the Asni Valley, a vey lush valley with a great variety of fruit trees providing a wide range of green tones against the red earth color of the ground.

Through our customized tour, we will experience the daily commercial life of the Medina as you will be lead through the labyrinthine Souks, truly get to know both the people, crafts of the country and more.
