Yin Yang Yoga & Surf Retreat Holiday in Morocco

NEXT RETREAT: 12 – 19 JULY, 2025

Experience a yin yang yoga & surf retreat! Enjoy a multi-activity holiday in Morocco.

Recent global events have turned our lives, and livelihoods, upside down the last few years. Priorities have shifted and continue to shift as new dramatic global events continue to occur. This unstable and unpredictable time in our lives has motivated Local Surf Maroc to offer a getaway to Morocco to Relax and Rejuvenate during a week long Yin Yoga and Surf Retreat.

Our aim is to create a safe and secure environment for everyone who joins our Relax & Rejuvenate Yin Yoga and Surf Retreat in the seaside village of Tamraght, Taghazout Bay, Morocco. You’ll have the chance to immerse yourself into a relaxing and meditative yoga practice, eating healthy Moroccan food, and allowing yourself the chance to slow down your life as you spend your week in the sun, sand, and sea.

In our regular Surf & Yoga Holiday Experiences, we mention that surfing and yoga are ideal companions when embarking on a journey to improve your life physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. For this seven night and seven day Yin Yoga and Surf Retreat, the Yoga classes focus on the Yin practice to help your body, mind, and soul slow down and rest, which differs from our usual Surf & Yoga Surf Experiences.

The opportunity to surf at some of Taghazout Bay’s finest beaches during this week will remain at the same standard as our other Surf Experiences, with lessons being progressive and equally informative. The surf lessons will be taught on the beach, to find balance and acceptance to adapt to the ever changing conditions of the water, further supporting the aim of the our Relax & Rejuvenate Yin Yoga and Surf Retreat of finding stillness.

Whether it’s Yin Yoga or Surfing, our aim is that you get our full attention during this Relax & Rejuvenate Yin Yoga and Surf Retreat, and the most from your experience with us. This is why both the yoga and surf sessions will be closed to other participants that have not signed up to this unique retreat in Tamraght, Taghazout Bay, Morocco.

IS THIS RETREAT FOR ME?

This Relax & Rejuvenate Yin Yoga & Surf Retreat in Morocco is open to all 18 years of age and above.

While some understanding of and previous Yoga practice is beneficial, it is not required.

No previous surfing experience is required! Surf lessons will start from the fundamentals if you are a complete novice. If you have some experience surfing, there is also space for you on this retreat as groups can be split accordingly to ability.

While you don’t have to be a fitness fanatic or in tip top shape, the Relax & Rejuvenate Yin Yoga & Surf Retreat in Morocco can be physically challenging for some. Being free of injury and illness will allow you to get the most out of this Retreat.

Alternatively, if you’re starting your journey, regardless if it’s fitness, surfing, or yoga, we suggest our standard Surf & Yoga Experience to provide a broader yoga experience and slower pace of progression.

WHY YIN YOGA & SURFING?
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with asanas (postures) held for longer periods of time than in conventional styles of yoga.

The practice of Yin Yoga is more specifically based on the Taoist concepts of Yin and Yang, opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin Yoga also employs specific sequences of postures to stimulate particular meridians as understood in traditional Chinese medicine. These meridians are similar to the Nadis channel concepts used in Hatha Yoga.

Some of the aims of Yin Yoga are to help stimulate the channels of your body, stimulate circulation, improve joint flexibility and longevity, and help cultivate an inner peace and stillness.

The Yin half of Taoist principles embodies concepts such as stability, the feminine, the passive, and a softness and coolness like a soothing balm to heal and rejuvenate. The Yang half embodies concepts such as instability, turbulence, the masculine, and an active and warm nature that is full of movement, rhythm, and repetition.

With this methodology in mind, the passive yoga asanas are considered Yin, while the more active and dynamic asanas are considered to be Yang. Conventional Yoga practices attempt to find a balance between the Yin and Yang, while Yin Yoga uses a more meditative approach to focus more on stillness and restoration as an antidote to the flurry of activity generally experienced in our day to day lives.

Although many postures in Yin Yoga resemble the asanas of conventional yoga, they have different names. The purpose of this is to remind the Yoga practitioner to perform the postures in a different way and achieve the aims of Yin Yoga. As the poses are generally performed with little exertion of the muscles, and the practice itself does not build an inner fire or heat, the environment in which Yin Yoga is practiced is typically warmer, making the Moroccan sun during the Relax & Rejuvenate Yin Yoga and Surf Retreat the ideal location.

Surfing can be described as an extension of yoga because it requires the same connection of breath, focus, and technique. In surfing there is equivalent importance to learning how to clear your mind, let go of expectations, and finding a balance in order to feel the most connected with yourself and your surroundings in the present moment.

So if yoga is the “yin” during the Relax & Rejuvenate Yin Yoga & Surf Retreat, then surfing is the “yang”: full of movement, motion, and repetition. In contrast, more strength and effort is required to surf than yoga, awakening your body and mind, providing the opportunity to reconnect with nature and relish in the ocean waves.

Regardless of your surfing experience and ability, at Local Surf Maroc, we will provide you with the same quality of surf lessons that you would expect from our Surf Coaching, Surf Mentoring, or Surf Guiding experiences.
