This winter we want to share a very special week with you. We have teamed up with the online surf mag Salt in my Hair to create our very first Longboard Yoga Retreat in Imesouane. This is not only our most favorite wave in Morocco but also the place where Travel Surf Morocco has found its home. Together with my beloved husband Youssef, we will organize this amazing week of surfing, yoga and good vibes.
Youssef will be your surf instructor. He is an ocean lover and real waterman who likes to share his passion for surfing with everybody! He has a really smooth and elegant style on his longboard – this is the kind of boards he likes to surf in any kind of waves… small ones and big ones. Mohammed and his salty hair, is also one of the most stylish longboarder of Morocco. They are both dancing the waves and it’s just beautiful to watch.
Depending on your level, we will have beginner classes, as well as coaching for the more advanced surfers. And don’t worry about surf equipment, we have many boards here that you can try out !
The spot : Imsouane is the longest right-breaking wave in Morocco and is a very mellow and fun wave. The spot is located in a fishertown away from the hectic city life. But we also have the surfspot Cathedral, which is steeper for the more advanced people.
Most of us don’t associate yoga with surfing, as they’re just two different activities, but surprisingly, engaging in both can have a dynamic effect on each. The amazing Salt in my Hair member Chanti Mai will bring you in good shape for the next swell with her yoga practice. Learn to breathe deeply, clear your head and strengthening the body.
Depending on the tides we will have either morning or evening yoga sessions :
S U N R I S E – Vinyasa Yoga (60 min) : a playful dynamic class with beginning sun salutations
S U N S E T – Yin Yoga (75 min) : a slow-paced and gentle class where poses are held for longer periods of time
Situated in front of the ocean, the surf lodge is just 5 min walk from the village and the spots (Magic bay, Cathedral Point and the Reef). Between two sessions, you can chill in your room or enjoy common spaces : sunny courtyard, cozy Moroccan salon and large open terrace.
During the longboard surf & yoga week you’ll get some delicious and traditional Moroccan food, such as tajine and couscous as well as really fresh fish straight from the ocean. All cook with love from our chef Ahmed !
