ZagYoga Morrocco Escape
April 15th to 22nd 2023
…When we got there, everything about it was inspiring, the teaching, the other students, the conversations, the place, the food and the beautiful studio. My body and mind learned and my practice got richer….For anyone thinking about it, don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it and your yoga practice will thank you! Tracy
After an amazing time in Bab-Zouina last year, we are going back. The venue for 2023 is a beautiful and peaceful place at the foot of the Morrocan Atlas mountains. Come and experience a week of Yoga in this exquisite and quiet environment. A week’s retreat gives you the opportunity to assimilate the study of asana and pranayama without the distractions that everyday life throws at you.
The 2022 retreat to Bab-Zouina was the perfect setting to replenish. The group included a wide range of abilities and experience but Monica ensured we all had the opportunity to learn at our own pace and deepen our understanding of both the poses and the philosophy behind Iyengar yoga. Bab-Zouina was an oasis of tranquility with beautiful gardens, abundant wildlife and views of the Atlas Mountains. Ample time to relax and delicious vegetarian meals all helped us to unwind and deepen our yoga practice in a restorative environment. A wonderful experience I will always remember. Helen
Bab Zouina is a traditional riad, a gorgeous Moroccan villa, located on a beautiful piece of land planted with fruit trees, palm trees, and a vegetable garden. The house is spacious and has many nooks and corners for the different times of the day, with various terraces and peaceful places that allow visitors to relax. The riad offers single and shared accommodation, beautiful vegetarian meals, and a fully equipped Iyengar Yoga studio among its sumptuous ornamental garden.
Bab Zouina acts according to an ethic based on integrity as well as social and ecological respect. Acting locally and sustainably is one of their main principles. Having the privilege of being in an idyllic place, Bab Zouina strives to preserve and improve its immediate environment.
What is included in the escape
6 two and a half hour asana classes in the mornings
5 restorative and pranayama classes in the afternoons
All vegetarian meals
Seasonal fruits and dried fruits are available in the courtyard at all times, as well tea, herbal tea, and coffee all day long.
Arrival at Marrakesh airport on Saturday 15th April (a passport valid for 6 months is required to travel to Morrocco)
The Zagyoga retreat at Bab Zouina in Morocco was everything and more that I could ever imagine. The company, the location, the food, the hospitality (from Karim, Helen and all the staff) within a glorious tropical setting was outstanding. But more than that, Monica’s teaching was, as ever, inspirational, challenging and rewarding. Every class was enlightening, engaging and uplifting and it was wonderful to learn so much more about the principles and practices of Iyengar yoga whilst making new friends and connections with likeminded people. I came home with a renewed sense of calm and motivation to improve my practice. Highly recommended for anyone looking for affirmation, guidance, rest and peace and lots of fun! Julie
