The outstanding Yoga Shala is situated on our roof top terrace offering amazing views over the village and the ocean. Enjoy a morning class and get the sunrise over the protected forest zone the anti atlas mountains - is there a better way to wake up?

The evening on the other hand has something very calming as the yoga shala gets lighted by the evening sun. Enjoy this relaxed yoga class by feeling the sunset over the ocean.

Remember that yoga is not about being able to make the handstand, it's about finding your inner peace.

SUP Yoga

Lets bring the ocean and yoga together on a SUP! SUP Yoga or Stand up Paddling is an amazing and blissful experience of practicing traditional Hatha Yoga postures on a stand-up paddle board floating on the water.

While increasing focus and breath control it also develops balance and refines technique by activating new muscles. Because the water is calming and stress-alleviating SUP Yoga develops deeper level of mindfulness and soothes the mind. Being one with nature brings a new perspective to your yoga.

This special yoga class is for everyone looking for something new, fun but relaxing and meditating at the same time. This 60 minutes initiation class is fun and challenging for beginners and experts alike. The postures on the SUP are created in a way that it will challenge every level.

You should calculate around 90 minutes for this whole experience, as we also need some time to explain the boards, walk down to the water and come back to the villa. We offer this experience every Friday or on request. The class can take up to 4 guests at a cost of EUR 40 per person. This special class is not included in your weekly pay but can be booked additionally.
