Taroudant

Just 1 hour east of Agadir, Taroudant is a “Little Marrakech” due to the backdrop of the High Atlas Mountains and its red town walls, which are more complete than those of any other Moroccan town.

This Berber market town is little frequented by tourists, providing an authentic experience of everyday life. It is closer to two mountain ranges and the sea than Marrakech, making it an ideal base from which to explore Berber countryside.

Enjoying the lovely spring climate in Morocco due to its southerly setting in the fertile Souss Valley, the source of an abundance of fruit and vegetables, it lies between contrasting mountain landscapes: the majestic High Atlas and the extraordinary Anti-Atlas which border onto the Sahara.

The Activities

Both Carol and Phill are experienced playworkers who love to share cooperative games as well as circus skills and stories. Carol is a qualified yoga teacher who has run classes for adults, children and families and teaches mindfulness in schools. She will offer simple, accessible yoga to start your day and a short guided relaxation in the evening. Phill is also a puppeteer, visual artist and storyteller. He will offer an alternative creative session before breakfast and together they will lead a range of sessions during the week to complement your holiday in Morocco. These sessions will be adapted to fit the ages and interests of the group including visiting local projects (eg orphanage) to share the common language of circus and play.

Carol Yoga

There will be a trip to the beach at Agadir, a “Feast for the Senses” and Carol and Phill’s sessions of at least 3 hours per day. A wide variety of cultural experiences and excursions will be available at extra cost including day trips in the High Atlas & Anti Atlas Mountains, wildlife, traditional craft activities, cookery, a ride in a horse drawn taxi, donkey and camel rides, massage, a visit to the local steam bath, breadmaking and several other choices.

Feel safe thanks to the care of the staff, good medical facilities (no compulsory vaccinations), safe water as well as the town being small, relaxed and friendly with few tourists and Morocco’s record for safety.
