The beautiful land of Essaouira, has a lot of unique culture to offer, Atlas Mountains, rejuvenating in the famous Moroccan spas, surfing spots and much more!!
We are so excited to introduce this beautiful town of Essaouira surrounded by aged Argan trees, producing the essential Argan oil and its luscious natural habit. Staying in a luxurious traditional Moroccan villa on a 33000 meter square nature area, featuring a 25×12 meter heated outdoor swimming pool. Yoga and meditation classes will be held daily to prepare our bodies and minds to find the “calm in the chaos” of the sensory-overload that is Morocco.
Domaine du L’Arganeraie is located 7 kilometers from Essaouira Medina and 5 kilometres from the beach, making it a perfect location for access to town, and yet far enough away from the chaotic center!
Amongst a green oasis of charm, ancient Argan trees, with rooms exquisitely furnished in traditional Moroccan style! It has a 25 meter heated outdoor swimming pool, and en-suite guestrooms, with free WiFi.
L’Arganeraie is situated in a 3.5-hectare park. Guests can enjoy hiking and camel rides nearby. Windsurfing and kite-surfing, quad bike rides are also available on the beach.
NO PREVIOUS YOGA BACKGROUND REQUIRED.
All levels are welcome, and participation is voluntary. Daily yoga and meditation classes will be offered, in a way to relax, stimulate and help guests grow in their own personal practise. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practised, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flows to ashtanga styles. Style and class levels will be determined and modified to fit participating students’ needs, and with a small intimate retreat class size, students will be able to get personalised attention and comfortability to deeply explore their practise.
*Participation in classes and activities is optional throughout the retreat.
Our Yoga Instructor
Sarah Muscat has developed a deeper connection with yoga since she took her first class in 2008 and fell instantly in love with the mind – body connection. She realised the practice was challenging, but, increased her strength, energy and brought structure and stability to her busy life, as well as, experiencing tremendous growth and transformation on a physical and conscious level.
Following her heart’s instincts, Sarah completed a 500HR RYT Yoga Alliance, Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow through Yoga Nisarga in Goa, Arambol, India December 2014 and lived in Angka Meditaion Ashram with the great Master Darma Yasa in Denpasar Bali. She has met many inspirational teachers and students throughout her travels across India, Sri Lanka, Australia and the Balinese Islands, which then led her to share her Workshops and retreats world wide.
Yoga has raised her awareness by providing individual space, yet surrounded, challenged yet supported, brave yet vulnerable, and most importantly, a space to heal from the inside out.
Yoga introduced Sarah to the best version of herself and has been a catalyst for growth in every single aspect of her life. She truly believes that the greatest teacher is the teacher within, and her intention, as an instructor, is to provide the space for students to raise their consciousness, reach their full potential, embracing their intuition, to explore their strength and manifest their greatest intentions of all good.
Healthful vegetarian food is part of the retreat experience, including breakfast, selected lunches and dinners, either hosted at the villa in Domaine du L’Arganeraie, or out and about in town. The cuisine is simple, delicious and Moroccan, using fresh ingredients from the seasonally grown produce in organic gardens, that is sold in local markets. Selection is seasonal, and you can guarantee to love and appreciate each bite!
Our in house chef has a degree certificate from the Institut Spécialisé de Technologie Appliquée Hôtelière et Touristique Ouarzazate.
