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!
Skillfully moving! Leaving comfort zones, being open towards changing to keep things the same. That’s what I have been taught on NOSADE’s yoga retreat. I left grounded and focused from an unique travel experience.
The Sahara and Morocco in it’s purest shape! Endless seas of sand dunes, authentic cultural insights and experiences, and perfect organizational work from NOSADE made this trip not just recommendable, but unforgettable.

We toured all over Morocco with NOSADE and have seen the greatest, loneliest sights while learning so much about the rich culture, about arts, and music. We enjoyed every moment and loved it!
Anica, I can't thank you enough for ensuring that we all had a wonderful yoga trip. We all really appreciated everything that you did behind the scenes to ensure the trip was effortless for us. Happy Easter! Cheers, Mel.
We’ve spent a super brilliant time, though way too short! Even better than the desert were the guys working with you, and the camels. We enjoyed it very much! Warm greetings again to Youssef and the rest of the crew.
A friend and I just got back from a 5 day yoga retreat in Marrakech with Nosade. From start to finish, it was everything I had hoped for and more. The trip was very well organised and tailored to suit our preferences.The yoga sessions with our talented instructor Gaia were both energising and relaxing. We had time in between sessions for a guided tour of the old city, to explore and shop in the souks and even to experience a traditional hammam. The food was invariably delicious & fresh with some excellent lunch recommendations from Anica. We had really good company and left feeling like we'd made friends for life. Thank you very much to Anica and Yidir for a great experience. Can't wait to get back and try the Desert tour.
Nosade Tours promises to help find a path to yourself in Moroccos most beautiful & inspiring sights. Nosade delivers. I spent two of the best weeks of my life on a Nosade desert retreat. My fellow travelers were experienced yogis who could stand on their heads and put their feet in their mouths. I was a beginner. Nevertheless, the classes and accommodated us all. My Yoga improved exponentially and I loved also the camel rides there and back to the Berber Camp and the treks in the desert. All the travel arrangements were exceptionally well managed and the food excellent.

This was really the experience of a lifetime. Nosade really provides a personalized one on one cultural experience that you don't get with a lot of tours. Hard for me to pick a stand out moment. Between Yoga in the desert, climbing sand dunes, hand drumming by the fire, riding camels, or seeing shooting stars in the night sky above the sand it's really impossible to pick. In addition to the guides teaching us a lot about Moroccan culture the yoga sessions really taught me a lot about my body, and gave me tools to improve my practice even further here at home.

A friend and I recently traveled to Morocco, and decided to venture to Merzouga to experience the NOSADE desert tour. Incredibly glad we did! The journey there was scenic and adventurous. The guides and staff at NOSADE greeted us as part of their family and took very good care of us. Riding camels into the desert was a surreal, unforgettable way to get to the campsite. By far, climbing the incredibly high sand dunes was my favorite part... breathtaking. Especially at sunset! We felt that we got a true Moroccan experience, and I wouldn't have changed a thing. Definitely recommend to anyone!

I was expecting a big group of hippy vegan women so you can imagine my pleasure when I realized you are all quite normal with a love for yoga food and the environment! Amanda is an amazing yoga teacher and you compliment her perfectly the experience has left me wanting more and I'm already looking for my next yoga retreat. It was a great experience for me and I'm so glad to have met you, I will cherish the memories for many years to come. I hope you're enjoying the serenity and beauty of the desert, and I've thought a lot about the desert retreat and the more I think about it the more I want to do it. Thank you so much for everything and please pass on my thanks to Yidir and if you're ever in London come and stay with me and don't worry I wouldn't expect you to provide yoga classes. Take very good care of yourself hope to hear from you soon. In the meantime I'm on the hunt for an Anusara yoga teacher here in London!
We toured with NOSADE 3 days through Erg Chebbi, starting in Merzouga. Everything went super smooth, was well organized, safe and we had a caring team of guides. We truly enjoyed the trip through this remarkable country! Special thanks to our tour guide Yidir, who made our trip very special with all his stories about the Berber culture and his great talent for playing the drums for us at the camp fires at night. I can only recommend you guys to book a trip with NOSADE and would for sure do it again.

My girlfriend and I have made this beautiful journey together and enjoyed it to the fullest. Yoga in the desert was an unforgettable experience. And also in Marrakech, we had a great time. The team of NOSADE was there to help us in every way.
