Embark on a mystical and magical journey of self-discovery with your eyes wide open.

There is no better place than Morroco to open the doors to your inner-self and embrace who you really are.

Enjoy a colorful week of awakening and energizing morning sessions. Followed by daily meditation and breathwork. Before you get to devour all the yummy Morrocan food, the restorative and calming evening class is bound to relax your body and mind.

Have you ever done Living Yolates? Me neither! One more reason to attend the Eyes Wide Open retreat.

But what is Living Yolates? Well, it’s a holistic and creative training method that aims to cover your body, mind, and soul. As it combines the best of yoga, pilates, meditation, and dance. Resulting in a very spontaneous and free-flowing practice. During which you can let go of negative energy such as worries, low self-esteem, tension, and limitations.

What makes me really excited about this retreat are the outdoor activities. Like an adventure ride to the desert & atlas mountain. Or a magical dinner under the stars in the desert. And an authentic Souk tour with a local.
