EYES WIDE OPEN
AUGUST 30TH - SEPTEMBER 6TH 2019 / MARRAKECH / MOROCCO
This mystical place will open up the doors to your inner self, feeling and embracing what is within you, embracing who you are.
Marrakesh represents the opposites, that make up this country. The tranquility, the turbulent history and the rich, varied and rebellious imagination. Marrakech is an open book, written by the impermanence of time and the diversity of space and read with different voices. Marrakech, it is said, is a lioness that combines the facets of gentleness and wildness. We all carry these two sides within us. Yin & Yang, strong & soft, feminine & masculine. Yoga is nothing but a constant interaction of these two qualities. And So is life.
This mystical place will open up the doors to your inner self, feeling and embracing what is within you, embracing who you are. A miracle.
WHAT WE DO?
A colorful week ahead of you! Awaking Yoga morning sessions with a focus on connecting your feminine and masculine energies, delicious moroccan food and plenty of time to explore all different faces of this magical place. AND yourself!
