Sahara Yoga

Sahara Yoga is a family travel company based in Kiel and in the Moroccan desert that was created with the mission of creating spaces in which people can meet in their joy and love. This has been achieved wonderfully with the desert camp. The camp, an oasis in the desert, hosts many individual retreats and is a magical place for yoga practice, but also for the encounter of cultures and living together in a community. With Sahara Yoga you travel to a place of peace and joy. A place that invites you to find your roots and the essence of life through the warmth of the people. In addition to the special trips, the sustainable development of Merzouga, my birthplace, is very important to me. This is reflected in many projects, such as the children’s project or the association for sustainable tourism in desert areas. I am happy that you are here and invite you to discover the world of Sahara Yoga. Come to us in the Desert and experience the Sahara yoga feeling for yourself.

Itinerary

DAY 1

Salam Aleikum Morocco!

29. November 2024

Today you set off on your journey into the desert. How have you decided?

If you take the domestic flight from Casablanca to Errachidia, the transfer will take you deep into the desert region to the oasis of Merzouga (approx. 2 h drive). The domestic flight lands in Errachidia at approx. 23:59. Arrival in Merzouga is therefore late at night. Our driver will be waiting for you and the other participants.

If you are travelling to Merzouga by bus from one of the royal cities, you will be picked up at the bus stop. The journey takes you through small Kasbah villages and past beautiful palm groves. The first overnight stay is in a traditional kasbah on the edge of the desert. (D)

DAY 2

Welcome to the Oussidi family

30. November 2024

We start the day with breakfast together with a view of the dunes.
In the morning we ride on our camels to our desert camp (also possible as a hike or by vehicle). A deliciously fresh lunch and the Oussidi family, who will look after us during our stay in the desert, await us there. Once we have settled into the camp, we head off for our first practice session in the desert. Let the desert work its magic on you and immerse yourself in the silence.

After dinner, we say goodbye to the day with a colourful sunset. At the campfire we enjoy the night sky dotted with millions of stars and will perform a fire ritual and a fire meditation to get in the mood for our time in the desert. (B, L, D)

DAY 3

The silence of the desert

1. December 2024

The days begin with a tea ceremony in the heart of the desert camp.

Now the individual time begins. What do you feel like doing? The possibilities are endless. Listen to Barak's stories about Morocco and the desert. Exchange ideas in the community, read in a shady place, listen to the silence in meditation or enjoy a desert walk to "Barak's Dune".

Lunch is heralded by the desert gong and you are spoilt with traditional mountain delicacies. Now it's your own time again until the evening practise. After the practice session, Barak's nephews are waiting with drums by the crackling campfire, while dinner is already being prepared in the kitchen. The day ends with a view of the breathtaking starry sky. (B, L, D)
