Morocco vacation with daily yoga
Description of Morocco vacation with daily yoga
2024: 16 Feb, 28 Sep
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOur yoga and art has a heavy focus on regional & local cuisine and preservation of art traditions. Our artisan producer partners use natural dying methods for textiles, using spices and herbs such as saffron and indigo. They also do a lot of hand-crafting, minimizing or eliminating the use of heavy machinery equipment.
We work with our local hotel partners to ensure fresh, locally sourced breakfasts and we visit locally owned restaurants that prioritize regional cuisine such as olive oil, local breads and figs.
Any time we buy snacks for the road, we look for fresh and local bites; in Morocco this might be mint tea, olives, figs, dates or a delicious pastry from the local baker.
On all of our trips, we focus on reduction of plastic and make sure that water jugs are available for refilling personal reusable water bottles. In the event of waste, recycle and composting, we direct client to the appropriate bins and disposal method.
PeopleOur Yoga & Art Morocco itinerary prioritizes locally owned suppliers including our traditional riad-style hotels, local guides, transportation providers, and restaurants.
Our accommodations are small, generally with around 10 rooms, and pride themselves in showcasing their local community including the neighborhood we stay in and the fresh, local food that they serve.
Our local tour guides are residents of the respective city and know its achievements & challenges, history and culture and provide in-depth perspective and context as we learn about the unique place we're visiting. We believe that a sound understanding of the local culture and community is essential to a transformative travel experience, and there is no better way to get that than from hearing through the stories of a local.
We also engage in a community partner activity to learn about artisan textile traditions. We'll have a several hour excursion with our Berber women's textile co-op with time to engage, ask questions, and see first-hand the impact that they've had. 5% of trip sales are donated to the NGO partner.
