Happy Tuesday ❤️ Exciting news – I’ve been speaking to my friend Sam who owns a beautiful riad in Morocco about running a retreat there in September. Just putting the feelers out before I firm everything up. Please share this post with friends!!

Potential dates are …

Sat 19th – Sat 26th sept
or
Sat 26th sept – Sat 3rd oct

7 nights in a beautiful Moroccan riad, gourmet veggie food (menu looks so yummy!), 1 meditation and 2 yoga classes a day with me and lots of free time to explore amazing Morocco – souks, surfing, hammams, massages, a trip to Essoueira or just chilling and taking some well needed time for yourself. I spent 10 months working in Morocco in 2013/2014 and can honestly say it’s an amazing place! I’m so excited about going back 🙂

The price would be around £450-£550 for the week including accommodation, transfers, all yoga & meditation classes and 3 meals a day. Check out pictures of Sam’s beautiful venue at

Having fun when there are no waves

When you live in a spot notorious for surfing, where everyone eats, lives and breathes in accordance with the next big swell … what on earth do you do when it’s a ‘flat day’? … Step forward the humble paddle board.

I’ve just come back from a gorgeous session with friends paddling from the front of Taghazout Villa to Anchor Point and back on stand up paddle boards. Such a peaceful way to spend time in the ocean and feels like you’re walking on water. you can also pull off some nifty yoga moves too 😉

 

The curse of Tamri

So this is Tamri … Fast, strong, uneven waves … And the bane of my life. So far I’ve surfed this point 4 times and injured myself 3 of those times … currently recovering from a cracked/bruised rib and nursing a newly twisted ankle. As I write this I’m sitting waiting to teach my open yoga class at the surf camp wondering how I can demo the postures without causing more damage and sneezing sea water … Attractive.

My love hate relationship with Tamri (love the bigger faster waves, hate the strong current) has caused me to rethink my attitude to surfing. Being the competitive type I  am I’ve realised it’s not always good to “go big or go home” but to be gentle and patient with yourself. Perhaps it’s time to apply the attitude of a yogi on the surfboard as well as off it.

But I will I be able to pull back and have a rest from sitting out back? Watch this space
