Teacher & Practice

NOSADE Teacher Team Lauren Nelson_Source NOSADE

Lauren Nelson

Lauren is passionate about all things related to life, love, and spirit, and is grateful to be sharing the benefits of a consistent spiritual practice with communities around the world. A language teacher by trade, Lauren began her transition to the healing arts in 2016, after several years of exploration in the New York City yoga community. She became manager of her neighborhood yoga studio, while simultaneously completing her first 200 hour Hatha/Vinyasa Teacher Training. She was completely immersed in the worlds of yoga, massage, Reiki, crystals, energy, acupuncture, plant medicine, and sound, and ever since has gravitated towards these modalities. After leaving New York in the fall of 2017 to walk the Camino De Santiago, Lauren has found her way to Morocco, where she has taken up the Ukelele, sat her first ten day Vipassana, and been teaching for the past few months.

Lauren believes that students already know the answers and the work of the teacher is to assist in this discovery – reminding us to turn inward, focus on our breath, and return to our hearts. Her teaching is a blend of all the practices, places, and people she has encountered on her path, and she looks forward to sharing with the NOSADE family.

Accommodation

Marrakech: 

You are accommodated right in the middle of the Medina, Marrakech’s old part of the city, in a carefully chosen, familar Riad. Cool and comfortable, beautiful and absolutely quiet though right in the center, the chosen Partner Riad provides you with the fitting environment to dust off, relax, enjoy the sun and a glas of Moroccan tea any time of the day. And of course serves us comfortably for our daily yoga practice.


Agdz, Drâa Valley:

You will be accommodated in the beautiful Bab el Oued Ecolodge deep inside  the heart of the Draa Valley. Right in the middle of a huge palm grove in a 5000 sqm wide oasis, where many species of flowers and fruits perfume the air day & night, Bab el Oued guarantees an enchanting surrounding during your stay.
Bab el Oued Morocco Ecolodge proposes you 6 independant unique bedrooms. Each bedroom offers full comfort and a mixture of traditional materials for your senses delight.


Merzouga
:

You are accommodated in a traditional Kasbah (Hotel) on the only hill there overlooking the Sahara before we are heading inside the desert and once we returned from the desert. The Kasbah is family-run, welcoming and has exceptionally nice but practical rooms, some of them facing the great dunes.


Desert camp:

Traditional Berber tents equipped with comfortable beds with mattresses will serve as our housing right in the middle of the desert. The camp furthermore holds a kitchen, a restaurant and a toilet. And for sure enough space for serving us comfortably for our daily yoga practice.

What does Retreat stand for on a trip with NOSADE?

Accept what is. Escape daily routines, find inner peace, inner balance, and inner tranquility. Morocco will challenge you to do so – with all its sounds, smells & (for us Westerners) sometimes unusual manners. We encourage you to open up for all those impressions.

Two daily Yoga and meditation sessions in Morocco’s mystical surroundings will be accompanying and supporting this experience.
