But also if :
All the practices proposed during this trip will be opportunities for in-depth transformation. Each day Pour l’amour de soi will propose one or more practices depending on the day’s program and what will be possible. (The two days of the trip will not allow long practices such as those you will do in the desert).
Yoga offers you a time to reconnect with your body, your breathing, and the living that animates you. Through listening, interiorly, respecting your limits and by realigning yourself from the inside you will find a space of well-being, spacious where everything becomes more fluid and is done with less effort.
Meditations and relaxations are opportunities for presence but above all for deep inner transformations. It is in these moments of total relaxation that your subconscious mind is the most open and receptive to what is offered to it again and again.
Conscious walking is done in silence, attention is focused on the feet, the breath, the moving body, the external sounds, space in and around oneself, without daydreaming or discursive thoughts. It is the flow of mindfulness, it is a simple and effective way to make contact with your inner resources.
All the trip on the spot is taken care of by Ali Khatar of the Marocalitours agency and his team.
