This training includes two Anusara yoga® distinctive courses that combined together make the 200 hour Teacher Training. These courses are  the Immersion and the Teacher Training or Teaching Methodology.

Training is divided into two MODULES:

The Anusara yoga® Immersion is a 108 hours course for anyone wanting to deepen their practice and knowledge of the different aspects of yoga, even with no intention to become a yoga teacher. The Immersion is a rich exploration of asana, alignment, pranayama, meditation, anatomy and yoga philosophy. The focus here is on being a yoga student and integrate the Anusara yoga® method. Full information about the Anusara yoga Immersion and its contents HERE.

Officially named Teacher Training, I like to call this 92 hour course Teaching Methodology. Its goal is to learn how to teach the Anusara yoga method, once you start integrating it into your self and your practices. You will get many resources and techniques to teach powerful and inspirational clases, safe for your students, with clear alignment instructions. To have completed a full Immersion is a pre-requisite to register for this course.

The landscape

Imi Ouadar, in the South of Morocco, has developed around the Ocean and locals live side by side with surfers in a peaceful rhythm with the Ocean. We are 10 minutes away from the famous surf center of Taghazout. In words of my friend Clare Beagley describing this part of the world, “… each evening there is a special moment where the serenity of the ocean and the glowing sunset gives way to twilight, the sea begins to roar her melodious chant and one by one the stars begin to cover the sky. It’s truly magical”. All this happens to the sounds of remembrance of the Divine from the local mosque.

We welcome you to the beauty of this place as we dive into these days of learning and transformation.

The resort & the yoga shala

We will stay in Paradis Plage, the beautiful luxury surf & yoga resort in Imi Ouadar. Our yoga shala is right on the beach, surrounded by beautiful gardens.  Be ready for amazing sunsets over the Ocean! 

The training has the option of residential or non-residential, and in both cases, breakfast is included so we will share in that meal together after our morning sadhana. For the residential option, accommodation will be in the resort apartments located 500 m away from the shala through the beach. Each apartment has two rooms and there will be a maximum of 4 people per apartment. You can choose between single or double room. Each apartment has its own kitchen.

Regarding meals you can choose to have lunch and dinner at the hotel, in any of the local restaurants around, or even cook yourself in the apartment.

We will start the training in the afternoon-evening, depending on arrivals of the group. If possible try to arrive around 4-5 pm. We will have an initiation circle, creating a personal and community intention, a practice if possible and we will have our first dinner together.

Testimonials

The Anusara Immersion & Teacher Training in Morocco gave me full insight in to the yoga philosophy and the importance of alignment, making me feel confident to teach yoga in a “safe” way. The practical exercises helped me a lot to better understand the theory and function of the body.

Susana’s a very inspiring teacher with many years of experience, sharing her private stories as helpful examples. She established a lovely and trustful environment amongst us participants, allowing me to step out of my comfort zone and open up to something new.

I’m very grateful to have had the chance to conduct this of training in English on my doorstep on Morocco!

Flights & travel arrangements

You can flight to Marrakech or Agadir airports. Many low-cost companies fly to Morocco from most of the European cities: Ryanair, Easyjet, Veiling, Air Arabia, Transavia,,... among others. Royal Maroc and Iberia are usually more expensive options and fly both to Marrakech and Agadir.

If you flight to Agadir airport we can arrange your transfer to the resort. If your flight arrives into Marrakech, there are different options: bus to Agadir (around 13€ one way), a taxi (100-120€ and can be shared by four people) or a minibus for a group in the case that several participants arrive there. The trip from Marrakech is about 3 and a half hours.

If your flight to Marrakech arrives late in the day, we ask you to please book your flight for the day before and to spend a night in Marrakech. This city is one of the main tourist destinations of Morocco and has a great offer of accommodation and entertainment.

Looking forward to see you in Morocco!!!
