Imagine an entire week of surfing, yoga, tasting local homemade cuisine, chasing that endless Summer dream, and doing it all in Morocco.

surf-copyThat’s exactly what Taghazout’s week-long beach side Amayour Surf & Yoga retreat is about!

Led by some of the top Animal surf team riders, Yoga instructors & ambassadors, from Saturday 3rd December until Saturday 10th December, you’ll get to soak up the sun and take part in a number of incredible activities whilst at the Atlantic coastal retreat.

Unlike any old Surf Yoga retreat, the ‘Wild and Free Retreat’ features the incredible Yogi Philly Lewis and 3 times British surf champ Alan Stokes. Stokes’ fellow coaches M’hand and Lashan will bring an amazing combined total of over 20 years professional teaching experience, so there will be an abundance of expertise on hand.

Coaching is available to all levels, from complete beginners to the advanced in both yoga and surfing.

Yogi Philly will run daily yoga classes created to revive and energise you each morning, as well as an evening stretch class to help with any aching bodies.

The retreat is based at a beautiful, boutique and bespoke family run surf apartment/hostel in the heart of Taghazout South Morocco.

Following on from this December retreat will be a new exclusive post-New Year January retreat announcement ‘Surf Eat Sleep Repeat’.

With only 13 spaces the Amayour Surf stays true to its intimate and bespoke vibe, be sure to get in quickly, as this is one winter retreat that will sell out fast!
