Yoga in Morocco

We caught up with Surf Sistas Yoga goddess Nicole Lohse to find out what you can expect if you join us in Morocco next month .. 

" So… You may be wondering what you may be in for while in Morocco. Other then the obvious – epic surf, good food, warm weather and amazing company you’ll also have the opportunity to do a whole lot of yoga!
I  will lead you through a number of different styles of classes from energizing flow/vinyasa, power and core to mellow restorative sessions, all designed to help you gain flexibility, balance, strength and awareness. Classes will include different meditation and pranayama (breathing) techniques to help you with focusing and staying calm out in the water. 

Some of these sessions will be about playing, laughing, building up strength and getting you ready for the water. Other classes will allow you to just mellow out and relax, releasing all the aches and pains from surfing. All in all it will be about going with the flow of the week, having fun, feeling good and being on vacation!"

Sounds amazing Nicole we can't wait ..
