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!

  • We recommend that you get a travel insurance that covers any medical problem.
  • You don´t need to bring your yoga mat but feel free to do it if you wish. All yoga material will be provided.

Flights & travel arrangements

You can flight to Agadir (the closest airport) or to Marrakech. 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!!!
