Moroccan cuisine is rich in spices, veggie friendly, and, as I was about to find out, not really that hard to emulate. So I booked a cooking class with Ouafa, whose incredibly tasty tajine I had been fortunate enough to try before…

Best Restaurants Marrakech NOMAD_Source NOSADE

What I like most about the cafes in Marrakech? They have so much light and air, plants, wood, and bright colors.

When ever I talk to people about doing Yoga in Morocco they are surprised about this fact: Yoga with this hustle and noise level? Yoga in an Islamic country? Not to mention all other cultural prejudices about Morocco. The ones who decide to take the adventure, to open up for the difference, the eventual discomfort & the unknown, will find what they are hoping & apparently seeking for.

In Marrakech, it is easy to feel comfortable and at home despite its strangeness and fascination – in a sea of seething life, bustling action, loud shouts and the feverish, everlasting and never ending circle of boiling life.

It is a strange feeling! A bit like the arrival on a deserted island, protected from the irrepressible desert winds, located at the foot of a giant dune. Like a promise the camp lies at our feet and greets in silence while we climb the last dune down…

Morocco has two main areas that look and feel as most of us in the West picture the North African Desert: Erg Chebbi and Erg Chigaga. Erg means “dune field” in Arabic and describes a flat and broad area of desert with wind-swept sand and little or no cover.

Anusara lessons are often lighthearted, positive, and fun – the yoga mat considered more a playground rather than your daily duty, as anusara is based on the Tantric philosophy. Anusara yoga is a celebration of life, the art of understanding and knowing our tendencies.
