Ashtanga Yoga Retreat in Morocco with Laruga Glaser

Welcome everyone! I am beyond excited to be able to connect intimately with each of you on this retreat. During the 7 days we will delve into the heart and soul of the Ashtanga yoga practice while connecting with nature, local culture, enjoying nutritious food, all within the eclectic backdrop of Morocco.. My goal is that by the end of the trip you walk away as a more empowered version of yourself, more connected to your body and spirit than ever before. I cannot wait to meet you all!

Meet Your Host

Meet Laruga, Laruga has been practicing Ashtanga yoga continuously for over 26 years. Starting at the beginning of her 20s, she was immediately drawn to the practice after working with other forms of yoga years prior. After establishing a committed practice she then deepened her studies travelling to Mysore, India annually to practice at KPJAYI where the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois taught and now his grandson, R. Sharath Jois teaches. Laruga has made more than 14 trips to Mysore and is on a mission to continue to learn and grow as a student as well as a teacher. She is one of the few in the world who have been given the distinction of being certified to teach up to Advanced B, which is not easily given and takes many years to earn. Through it all, Laruga teaches as an act of deep sharing and love for what yoga develops in each individual, facilitating space to open, challenge, and inspire those to realize their inherent potential, and has been personally invited all over the world to do so.

Testimonials

“Meg and Jose have done an amazing job at creating a retreat — that is truly a retreat from reality. I learned so much about myself and ways I can better myself every day. I came into this retreat not knowing what I needed or wanted and I am leaving with so much peace, love, and ease.”

“It was one of the best weekends I could have ever dreamed of. I was able to connect with my body, my soul, and my mind to really dig through some things that have been in there for quite some time. I can now look towards the future and see what my desires are, how they line up, and how I can get there. This was one of the most beautiful experiences and I could not recommend it any more.”

“This has been amazing and the spiritual retreat experience has been awesome. I have learned that it’s okay to be still — and not busy, busy, busy. I have grown and flowed and met awesome people. 10/10 recommend, will be doing again.”
