Anica founded NOSADE to share authentic travel experiences in beautiful, diverse, and ever fascinating Morocco with like-minded nomad-hearted people.
One of her concerns as an entrepreneur is combining a conscious approach to nature and culture on the one hand with a company that creates jobs for locals and operates in a sustainable and fair fashion on the other. She strives to provide both clients and employees with educational and formative experiences.
As a yoga teacher she blends knowledge of the bio-mechanical aspects of healthy motion in yoga with a balanced and conscious approach to life that is rooted in thousands of years of yoga tradition and teachings.
“Make conscious choices about how to move – joyfully, and yet skillfully and aware – how you want to think and feel and take these learnings from the mat to your daily life.”
Anica is a trained yoga therapist. She also teaches Anusara yoga to students of all proficiency levels, focusing on the development of an autonomous awareness for a pain-free and self-determined life in motion.
