New Year yoga retreats
Are you looking for a special New Year experience? Perhaps you would like to take the opportunity, over the long Christmas holiday period, to unwind, relax and restore, meet new people, or immerse yourself in your yoga practice? Or simply a chance to explore one of the world's most exotic, intriguing cities? Whatever your reason for seeking a New Year Yoga Retreat, we have retreats that are sure to tempt.
As a trusted wellbeing travel company, we specialise in Morocco - a country we love, and have been visiting for more than a decade. We especially love to visit over the New Year period, when Morocco typically experiences day-time temperatures of 20 degrees celsius, blue skies and sunshine - a dazzling tonic to grey northern European winter skies.
The balmy climate, combined with wonderfully tasty, locally sourced food, warm hospitality and lovely accommodation are some of the reasons we believe Morocco to be the perfect destination for a New Year Yoga Holiday.
Our New Year yoga breaks
We run two yoga retreats over the New Year period, both of which are in Morocco, hosted by venues we have been working with for over five years. The first is hosted in a beautiful Riad just a few minutes walk from the main square and yet astonishingly peaceful. Here you will enjoy the very best in Moroccan food, cooked by local chefs, using recipes passed down through generations. We practice yoga twice daily in the lovely central courtyard, and enjoy walking tours of the city and surrounding Atlas Mountains.
Our second New Year retreat is hosted in a fabulous Moroccan Kasbah (castle), nestled in the foot hills of the Atlas Mountains; the ultimate destination for nature, peace and tranquility. This retreat combines twice-daily yoga with daily hikes into the surrounding. A knowledgeable and experienced local guide takes the group through national parkland, villages, olive groves and farmland.
