Every corner has a hidden space to rest and relax, enabling you to take a rest after exploring the beautiful corner of Morocco.
Pranaholic Retreats believes that yoga and water is a perfect holiday combination. The physical and mental benefits of yoga and surfing share similar characteristics. Asana practice in the yoga studio hones one's focus and teaches precision control of body movements. Surfing does the same in the water. Both disciplines teach to be flexible, open and adaptable, and after a certain point, both activities transcend the physical become very mental and elemental in nature.
All of the classes are designed for all levels of participants. Pranaholic is here to lovingly support you in listening to your body, meeting yourself in each moment and inviting yourself to go deeper into connecting with your body, breath, and creative spirit. Feel the brilliant nature surrounding as you get out of your head and connect to your inner rhythm.
You will start the day with heating Vinyasa Flow and finishing your evenings with gentle Yin and Restorative classes. You will go deeper into pranayama (various breathing techniques) and experience smiling meditation and yoga Nidra (yogic sleep). In addition, you will have powerful Mandala meditation, which is also known as Shamanic breathwork. Extra yoga classes are available upon request at additional costs.
SUP yoga has combined stand up paddling with yoga to teach you to breathe, move, and be present not only on the water but in your everyday life. SUP yoga will tone your core, build your stability, and provide you with a fun learning environment to play and have fun with your practice outside the studio.
SUP yoga classes will include on land yoga teachings to prepare you to take your sequence of postures onto the water. On the water, you will flow and move while floating and enjoying all the elements of the wilderness and landscapes from mountain tops to beautiful ocean sunsets. By combining breath with movement, you are sure to find moments of fun, laughter, and focus while moving with the water on your board.
The surf classes are included in the package. There will be two sessions per week, two hours long for each session. Taghazout has more than 10 surf spots, so you will be able to find waves that suit your surfing abilities everyday. Extra surfing classes are available upon request at additional costs.
Included in this package are excursions to souk (local market), local Argan oil factory, and a visit to Paradise Valley.
You will visit a souk, Moroccan local market. Agadir's most impressive market is Souk el Had. It is a massive walled enclosure on Rue Chair al Hamra, selling fruit, vegetables, spices, household goods and clothes, with a few tourist stalls thrown in. Everyday is a big day when it spreads out over the neighboring streets as people come from all over the region to buy and sell their wares.
Argan oil is a precious and rare oil extracted from the fruits of the Argan tree (Argania Spinosa), which is endemic to a region in southwest Morocco. In Morocco, Argan oil is used to dip bread in at breakfast or to drizzle on couscous or pasta. It is also used for cosmetic purposes.
Up in the mountains and at the end of a route lined with palm trees, there is a valley carved out over thousands of years by waterfalls. It is an idyllic scene straight from the movies that awaits you named Paradise Valley. It is a good trek there, but the rewards far outweigh the work. You will get to sun yourself on the warm rocks, cool off in the plunge pools, and spend the day being blown away by the untouched natural beauty of this unique location.
The retreat will take place in World of Waves, located in the laidback fishing village of Taghazout, Morocco which is famous for calamari and hippies. It is now considered as Morocco’s premier surfing destination for both pros and learners. Surf breaks such as Hash Point, Panorama, Anchor Point, La Source, Killer Point, and Mysteries surround the village.
You will be served daily vegetarian and vegan meals including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Pranaholic Retreats will source the food locally and it will be based on Mediterranean and Moroccan lifestyle. Therefore, you are not only getting the freshest food possible but also lowering the carbon footprint.
The chef will help you with personalized advice upon request and will give you meal options for you to try at home. This will not be a diet. It will be the beginning of your journey towards a healthier, stronger, and happier you!
A visit to a Moroccan Hammam (bath house) is one of the best ways to connect with Moroccans. Do not miss out a cleansing and cultural experience of Hammam, the famous Turkish bath in Morocco. Hammam played a significant part in Moroccan culture for centuries. A traditional steam room is used by Moroccans at least once a week for a ritual based body treatment that involves the steaming, scrubbing, and massaging of the skin until it glows. This treatment is included in this program.
