For over 10 years you can find nomad heart Katrin regularly on the mat. In the yoga practice, she found peace and strength from the very beginning – serenity and gratitude followed. The desire being able to pass that to others has initiated her doing a yoga teacher training in 2013 in India at the Ashiyana Yoga Centre and aroused her interest in yoga and holistic life approaches. Additionally it is Katrin’s heartfelt concern to integrate yoga into a normal life, to practice with fun and joy and to submit no overlying strict dogmas.
I went to a 5-day Yoga retreat in Marrakech in December and enjoyed every second. The organization through Nosade was perfect and so a feeling of security developed during the entire journey up to the (wistful) departure. Already during the booking process organized by Anica, the individual wishes and needs are queried and you get suggestions for activities, which you can also book at the same time. Also during the stay Anica and Yidir are always accessible and can give another good (insider) tips for great places in Marrakesh. I was accommodated in the Chambre d'Amis. A very great, cute riad with a super friendly and helpful team. The roof terrace is simply a dream and at the latest at the breakfast on the same at the pleasant 20 degrees in December the sun is in the heart. The yoga praxis takes place twice a day. The morning session we did mostly on the roof terrace, the exercise in the evening in the fireplace in front of the open fire. The yoga praxis was simply super! Katrin asked for special wishes / goals before each hour, and then adapted the hour individually. She has a very pleasant way and you can follow her through the exercises. It also teaches to take borders and "take the drama out". After each end relaxation you felt equal 2 cm larger.
Absolutely recommendable is the trip to the "Paradis du Safran", which I had booked immediately. Here, in front of the gates of Marrakesh is actually a small paradise emerged, which is definitely worth a visit. Just the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains in the background is breathtaking. It is also worthwhile to take part in the offered cookery course. I did this in the riad where I stayed, with the cooks of the riad. One could then gain an insight, we the two kitchen fairies the sensationally delicious dinner, which we usually took in the riad. A special highlight was the previous purchase of the ingredients in the souk. This I did with Maria, the director of the Riad, who showed me during this shopping trip so many great people and corners of the Souk.
5 days of yoga and culture in the middle of Marrakesh. In addition to 2 times daily yoga, one day visit of the main sights was planned. The city is really beautiful and Gaia taught her yoga with a lot of passion and calm. The breakfast and the dinner we ate together. The rest of the day could be customized, eg with a visit to Hamam. After these five days of Marrakesh, I was reluctant to leave and would like to go to the desert. Nosade, above all Ydir, who took care of us, did so very committed and reliable. He could be contacted at any time and also ask for tips. I'll be back!
