A typical day

6-8 am: Yoga lesson
8-9 am: Breakfast
9-12 am: Theory lessons
12-3 pm: Lunch and break
3-6 pm: Mixed lessons
6.30 pm: Dinner

A typical day you wake up for an early 2-hour morning class, followed by a fresh breakfast and a short break, some of us use this for a power nap, others simply to rewind. We then move into a three hours lesson session, mostly theoretical, before it is time for lunch and a longer break, perhaps used relaxing by (or in) the pool with a good book, head to the in-house hammam or why not enjoy a walk through the vivid outdoors. Classes continue at 3-6 pm before we enjoy a threee-course dinner at the Riad. Off course you are welcome to explore the area after  dinner time with your fellow students, or you may just find a nice corner with your laptop for a calm evening, preparing for a new beautiful morning.

During our stay we will have five optional lunch-excursions where we leave the Riad for lunches at local favorite restaurants and use the rest of the break to explore a local experience or destination. Lunches are included but depending on the excursion there may be additional (and optional) fees attached. Examples of these excursions are a visit to a famous garden, a private souk tour, a visit to a large hammam, a city-tour on bike, a cooking class or a belly dance (shikhat) lesson.

We also have two full days off the training. These days are ment for you to explore Morocco from your perspective, lunches and dinners are therefor not included. However, if you wish, we are happy to initiate a common excursion. Suggestions could be to spend one day by the Atlantic coast and the other day showing you the best shopping in town for us all to bring something special back home.
