IMSOUANE

September 14th - 21st, 2024

Overview

Come with us to Morocco and experience a little adventure in a controlled setting with all the comfort you could wish for.

Yoga with the Atlas Mountains behind you and the Atlantic in front of your eyes. Sport under the Moroccan sun. Surf one of the best waves in Africa. Immerse yourself in a completely foreign culture. Eat Moroccan specialties like Msemen, Mkila, Tajine & Amlou.

Sports & Yoga

One thing in advance: Everything is possible, nothing is mandatory.

If you e.g. For example, if you only want to do sports once a week, then that's completely okay. We don't attract people who come on vacation to shred and want to fly home with a six-pack.

We also don't attract people who want to have a deeply spiritual experience in the desert on retreat and chant Om Shanti all day. Others cover that. 

With us you will find relaxed people who like to live a healthy and balanced life or who want to give their life a kick-start towards a sustainably healthier direction with this retreat.

  • Our HIIT fitness classes are designed to make you feel energetic and fit when you leave.
  • Our yoga is designed to stretch not only your body, but also your mind and get in touch with your emotions. The yoga sessions allow you to spend time with yourself and give you the peace that you might not always get in everyday life.

Eat

We are absolute foodies.

Our cook at the Morocco Retreat always uses what she gets fresh from the market that day. That's why we as tour guides often don't know what exactly will happen during the day until the same morning. 

We influence that the food is fresh, that not too much oil is used, that the ratio between proteins, carbs and veggies is balanced, etc. 

An example day would look like this:

In the morning there is an extremely delicious breakfast buffet, where you will find classics such as scrambled eggs and muesli as well as local specialties such as Msemen and Amlou. For example, at lunchtime we have... Saffron pancakes with vegetables. Then in the evening you have something like a tagine or the best couscous you've ever had.

Just so you know: Morocco is still Morocco. A bit exciting and adventurous - it's always possible that cute baby cats find their way into our living room while we're eating. Or that dogs are fighting on the street in the background. Or that the oven doesn't work. 

Regarding dress code: We consciously create a place where you don't have to conform to social norms. Come in a shirt or sweatpants, there is no seeing or being seen here.

Accommodation

We rent the most beautiful house in the village exclusively for our group. The stunning villa for a maximum of 18 guests is located in the beautiful coastal village of Imsouane in Morocco, right on a picturesque cliff. You look at the Atlas Mountains and the Atlantic at the same time.

The natural pool is the center of everything in this fitness & yoga retreat. There are many different seating areas where deep exchanges can take place. But don't worry: At the same time, it offers enough retreats to read or be alone without being disturbed. 

We have so-called hosts in the house who, alongside us, also take care of your well-being: order tea, coffee, etc. to the pool through you and make relaxing more pleasant for you.

There are also 2 people who are responsible for the security of the house day and night. Room cleaning always takes place when you put your room key in a box in the morning - easily every day.

It takes about 2 minutes to walk to the surf beach. To the “village” 3 minutes.

Weekly plan

day 1

Arrive and immerse yourself

Our shuttle will pick you up from the airport in Agadir and take you directly to our luxurious villa in Imsouane.

Not only a hearty dinner or a late-night snack awaits you there, but also a comfortable bed.

This way you can recover from the trip and prepare for the exciting first day of the retreat.

day 2

The kick-off of your adventure

Your Morocco adventure begins with an energetic boot camp session, followed by a delicious breakfast.

Your time at the pool, where you'll make cool new friends, will only be interrupted for lunch together. 

A yoga session by the pool brings relaxation, followed by dinner at the long wooden table.

The day ends with an engaging lecture on nutrition and exercise - so you can get the most out of your activities both at camp and at home.

Day 3

Surf and enjoy the sun

Your first surfing lesson of this fitness & yoga retreat will take place on Monday, yay!

Our surf instructors will provide you with everything you need and will either teach you the basics of surfing or take intermediate surfing to the next level.

In the evening, a yoga session will ensure that your muscles relax so that you are ready for the next boot camp on Tuesday.

Day 4

Adventure in Essaouira

After an early boot camp and breakfast, head to Essaouira!

Our shuttle will take you to the central souk (market), where you can discover Moroccan specialties and art.

After your return, a sunset yoga session awaits you, which will perfectly round off the exciting day with all the different impressions.

Day 5

Surfing, creativity and souvenirs

Ready for the next surf session?

After lunch there will be a creative workshop - the exact topic remains a secret.

But you will go home with a wonderful souvenir.

As always, we end the day with yoga and a delicious dinner.

 

Day 6

Sunset excursion and magic

One of the most special days in the Fitness & Yoga Retreat is the sunset hike excursion.

We first visit an inland argan oil factory, then walk through a seaside oasis and then enjoy a Moroccan tea at a breathtaking viewpoint as the sun sets.

Toast to a week full of magic!

 

Day 7

Sporting highlight and final dinner

Friday is our sporting highlight with surfing, boot camp and yoga – all in one day! 

As a reward, a special final dinner awaits you in a typical Moroccan restaurant in the village, accompanied by live music and a glass of wine at the end of the week.

 

Day 8

The Grand Finale

It's time to say goodbye - but not to be sad!

The friendships you made this week will stay with you for a long time. Believe us, we speak from experience.

The final boot camp before breakfast gives you the last energy kick before our shuttle takes you to the airport in Agadir.

Goodbye Amlou, goodbye Imsouane.

Hello home.
Hello new, healthy habits!

 

getting there

The retreat takes place in Imsouane. 
For that It's best to fly to Agadir, where we will pick you up.

Important:
The outbound flight from Zurich is sometimes shown as indirect, although it is essentially direct. You first fly to Marrakech, where you can stay on the plane and fly on to Agadir.

On the way back you fly directly from Agadir.

How big is the retreat group?

In Wildhaus the maximum group size is 14 people plus the Templeshape team. On average there are usually around 12 guests. 

Are there any specific requirements (fitness, yoga, entry, ...)?

There is only one requirement: please make sure that you have a passport and that it is valid for at least 6 months upon entry!


Otherwise: We design our fitness and yoga sessions so that both beginners and advanced students get their money's worth. So you don't need to have any previous knowledge of yoga or bootcamp fitness. Everyone goes at their own pace and will make sure that exercises are performed properly to prevent injuries. 

Is there a compulsory program?

There is no compulsory program.


If you don't feel like doing sports or yoga or going on an excursion, then you can simply not join in. No one will be mad at you - it's your vacation and you should relax in the way that suits you best!

Is Morocco safe?

We'll pick you up directly from the airport, so you're never on your own. You'll probably meet other retreat participants when you leave.


We have never had any problems in Morocco and the area around Imsouane is particularly safe. 

Flights aren't included, right?

That's correct. Everyone books their own flights :)

Which age groups are represented?

We are mostly a mixed group, with the majority of the group being in their 30s.

However, we have had everyone from 20 to 70 and we love this group. We really want to encourage everyone to come along, because age is absolutely irrelevant to us.

What are the cancellation policies?

Cancellation up to 8 weeks before the retreat: You will be refunded 80% of your total payment (minus the deposit).

Cancellation 4-8 weeks before the retreat:
You will be refunded 501% of your total payment (minus the deposit).

Cancellation within 2-4 weeks before the retreat: You will be refunded 251% of your total payment (minus the deposit).

Cancellation less than 2 weeks before the retreat: You will not receive a refund.

Can I travel alone as a woman?

You really don't have to worry and can travel alone as a woman without any problems. We will pick you up at the airport and will be in contact with you the whole time.


In Imsouane you can even see women walking around the beach in bikinis; clothing rules are not as strict there as in other regions.

Templeshape in Zurich is simply fantastic! Thanks to this studio, I have developed a whole new relationship with training. The trainers are absolutely outstanding and are not only... by designing effective training sessions, but also by creating a warm and family atmosphere. I feel really comfortable and motivated here. Templeshape has shown me that exercise is not just a physical activity, but can also bring joy and community. I highly recommend it!read more

The retreat on Crete was a fantastic experience! The combination of intensive boot camp and relaxing yoga sessions was perfect. In addition, the retreat offered enough time for yourself... yourself to relax and spend time with great people. Dani, Mira and Gerrit are great and create an inspiring atmosphere in which everyone feels comfortable. Another highlight was the local, super delicious and fresh food. I can recommend the retreat to everyone!read more
