Desert Dream with Michael Stewart

October 26th to November 3rd

An Arabic proverb says: The desert is clearing the soul.
Imaging you discover a new culture and you feel home. Imagine you practice Yoga and all around you is silence and pure Nature. Imagine you experience to wide of the stunning Sahara Desert and you are in the middle of it. Imagine you have everything in the middle of nowhere.

At the Sahara Yoga desert Camp in the middle of the dunes of Erg Chebbi in the Sahara desert you will find this place. The camp provides a place of peace, of love, of silence and comfort. You can let go of everything you no longer need and be with yourself, your soul and your heart in an absolutely amazing surrounding.

Come and feel the Sahara Yoga Feeling

About the Retreat

In our time amidst the desert of Morocco we will share many practices of Yoga that will awaken the primal spirit deep within. Each day will begin with pranayama and meditations accompanied with awakening practices for the adventure filled days ahead. We will find ourselves deep in the desert surrounded my ancient sand dunes and families whose histories are written upon them. The entire adventure will be a deepening in your practices of Yoga and your intimate relationship to yourself and those around you. Shanta Vira Yoga is a practice of actively being human and in our time together we will have many opportunities to explore these possibilities. Come with an open mind and be prepared to leave with an open heart and new friends. Jai Śri Ma More Information on Michael Stewart:
