Dedicated to yogic values and practice, it is the perfect place to escape and connect with your inner calm and take some well-deserved time to explore some of the amazing adventures Morocco has to offer.
Experience yoga in this dramatic and stunning setting, practice on the roof top shala overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Surfing for all levels, even if you have never tried before, our dedicated instructors will get you popping-up on your board in no time! Beginners through to advanced surfers can easily be catered for – go on, just try it amongst friends.
Explore unspoilt sandy beaches and traditional markets and villages and the bliss of being tucked away from the hustle and bustle in our Moroccan ‘retreat’.
Located on the rugged Moroccan coastline, just outside Taghazout, the retreat boasts a lush garden, relaxing living areas and plunge pool. Above all, the space has a caring and family-like environment created by our dedicated team.
The villa is spacious, with a Berber and colonial style living area which looks out onto the pool and beach. It’s the ideal place to read and relax after a long day in the sun and surf or spend blissful evenings accompanied by exquisite food and great company.
Bougainvillea flowers provide colourful shade for the front terrace and dining area and there is plenty of space for sunbathing and lazing by the ocean front swimming pool.

Gill discovered yoga over 11 years ago and first came to the mat to explore the physical benefits of the practice but quickly discovered these benefits reach much further than the physical body.
Gill strongly believes that yoga is for everyone, irrespective of ability or background, yoga is accessible to all. Once the exploration of this amazing practice begins, we find a quiet and calm mind, the ability to be present, challenge yourself, explore the possibilities and most of all have some fun.
She completed her Yoga Alliance training in Costa Rica and has trained in Ashtanga and Vinyasa practices. Gill is also an adventurous soul and has travelled extensively to over 100 countries and all seven continents.
