flowing desert

 19-24th SEPT |  IMSOUANE, MOROCCO

THE EXPERIENCE

IT'S TIME TO EXPLORE, TO GET LOST IN THE DESERT

 

Are you also thinking it's time for a special trip? But a trip far away!

It's time to explore, to live new adventures, to meet new people and overall it's time to give you a break and finally disonnect.

 

Flowing Desert is a mix of all that. In this Surf & Yoga Retreat we will move, disconnect, learn about new cultures and surround ourselves with breathtaking landscapes, stepping out of our comfort zone and sharing magic adventures with our tribe on the heart of the Moroccan coastline, a special place where you will be able to surf the longest wave in North of Africa.

WHERE? 

IMSOUANE

Join us in Imsouane, a small Moroccan town where the desert meets the ocean in a breath-taking combination of sand and surf. A place where you can breathe in the calm of nature and soak up the power of the waves by day and marvel at the star-scattered sky by night.

 

Also known as “the Magic Bay”, Imsouane is a perfect surf spot thanks to its soft, long bay which offers endless gentle rolling swell for beginners and the opportunity to enjoy the longest surfable waves in North Africa for intermediates. Whatever your level, your experience of surfing in Imsouane with us will be unforgettable.

DAR ZITOUN

 

This gorgeous villa is located on the hill of Imsouane, just a few metres from the beach with spectacular views of the bay and the mountains that surround this picturesque Moroccan Town.

 

With views of the two surf spots, you will be able to check if the waves are working without leaving home. Also, the villa has a beautiful pool and a great terrace perfect for our sunset yoga sessions or our chilling after a long day of surfing. Next to the wide terrace there is a small garden surrounded by desert hills perfect for our meditation circles.

 

The living room is very cosy, with Moroccan decoration, it has a library and a dinner area with a magic atmosphere, creating the perfect space to share yummy meals with our tribe when it gets dark.

 

The location is perfect, from Dar Zitoun you can walk to the beach and the village where you will find local shops and a square full of life with the frenetic rythhm of the local fishermen.

YOGA 

 

“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” - The Bhagavad Gita

Whether you're a beginner worried about snapping in two while folding forward or an experienced yogi who can handstand in one hand... we have a practice for you. Our classes are less about the poses and more about the way they make you feel, about creating space in body and mind, and about creating awareness. We will be stepping into our mats every day exploring different styles: from invigorating morning practices to relaxing and rejuvenating evening classes.

We aim to help you develop strength and flexibility, but more so, to develop the ability to become present and to tune into your body.

The yoga takes place in an outdoor space which is sunlight & easily aired. You'll be provided with your own yoga mat which you get to take home with you after the retreat. That way you'll always remember us & the experience :)

SURF

 

“Surfing is a way to be free.” - Lisa Andersen

The sport of kings is an analogy of life, at least to some extent: there’s ups and downs, calm and rage, beauty and horror, and very often you don’t know what’s heading your way.

Have you always dreamed of surfing but don't know where to start? Or maybe you already fell in love with it and just want a cool tribe to share your passion with. Whatever it is, we promise you lifetime experiences in the ocean!

You will be learning 1:1 with professional surf coaches that will guide you in the whole process, helping you to get a taste of the amazing sensation that is sliding down a wave.

INCLUDED:

  • 3 practical lessons assisted by professional surf coaches

  • Surfboard

  • Wetsuit

*Spoiler alert: the chances to become obsessed about surf are really high! We just wanted to let you know...

FOOD

 

To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art " - Francois de la Rochefoucauld
 

We believe we are much more than we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are.

 

We use fresh seasonal produce to prepare ourselves most of the goodies we provide. At Kukui, is all about eating healthy without compromising the pleasure. You can expect fresh colorful vegetarian delicious meals that will leave you feeling energized and satisfied: home made bread, our signature hummus, original salads, banana bread and baked goods in the morning...just name it!

 

Each breakfast and dinner are a big gathering around the table, and an opportunity to get to know better other retreat members, learn new recipes, and share quality time with others. Lunch consists of a licking-finger take away you can bring with you at the beach and eat after your surfing lesson or whenever you feel.

 

We also have fresh fruit, tea & coffee available 24h

 

*Let us know if you have any food intolerance. We will make sure to provide you with a special menu.
