A full day will be spent in Essaouira, a historic fortified town on the Atlantic coast.

One thought on “Events: Retreats – “Eat.Pray.Move in Italy and Morocco”

  1. Hi,
    I’m looking for a yoga retreat in Europe between Christmas and the end of the year.
    I work a lot during the year and I would like to relax, detox, practise yoga and visite a beautiful sorrounding close to the yoga retreat hotel during the free yoga moment.

    Do you have any suggestions?

    Please let me know.
