Join Saira Francis and Amanda McGregor for a blissful 5 night retreat at the beautiful mountain villa Tamazirt just 13 minutes from the bustling village of Taghazout on the coastline near Agadir in Morocco.
The retreat is run by Shiraz, originally from Bournemouth now living out in Morocco with her family. Her and her partner run Amayour Surf, they have two centres, one lively one right in the bustle of the village Taghazout and this one up in the hills, quiet apart from passing goats, donkeys, horses and the barking of the local neighbours dogs now and then.
We invite you to share with us as we enjoy offering you the opportunity to retreat in the sunshine. We have wonderful plans to help you relax, have fun, eat well, laugh much and learn some yoga and surf, maybe for the first time!

We invite you to join us for our surf & yoga ‘Finding Balance & Joy’ retreat.
Whatever level of surfer you are, days spent playing in the waves, connecting with the ocean and bonding with your co-surfers over take offs and pop ups is a wonderful way to bring out the surfer sparkle in your eyes.
We believe the combination of surfing and yoga is a great way to connect with yourself, others and nature. Both encourage us to slow down and let life flow naturally. The ocean serves to teach us many lessons, which will be translated to you by our experienced coaches. Listen to their tips, simple words of wisdom that can be transferred from surfing – and yoga mats – into everyday life. Often highlighting your habits and self-defeating patterns, through the practice of surf and yoga people often comment on how it has helped overcome fears, increased confidence and many other benefits.
When you’re focused on surfing, moving through a yoga sequence, you are in the flow, and when you find balance on your board and mat, you will notice a more balanced feeling in other areas of your life too.

Reviews from our last Moroccan Yoga & Surf retreat

Amazing location, brilliant staff, surfing out of this world, food was the best. Many many happy memories, thank you everyone who helped make our stay truly remarkable.
What an incredible experience! Amazing food, inspiring yoga and incredible surfing. The surfing instructors were patient and skilled and we were well looked after by the guest house cooks and chef with the most nutritious food. Saira and Sally were both fantastic yoga teachers and there were many more new experiences that brought much laughter, joy and peace. I can’t stop smiling!
Fabulous Yoga & Surf stay @ Azul with Mellulah. Magical place with access to great beaches for surfing and the sweetest most patient instructors. The staff are super helpful & worked really hard to make our stay special. The food made by chef Badur & his staff was 5 star! I loved the rooftop terrace for sunrise & sunset yoga sessions and relaxing evenings. Saira’s sessions were inspiring, challenging, fun, thought provoking, interesting and a perfect balance for me of physical & spiritual yoga. Would definitely go back & am looking forward to hearing about future retreats.
“This was an amazing experience for me on many levels – the people I met, the place, the many things we did, the yoga and meditations practices and teaching. We stayed in a family run guesthouse (Azul guesthouse), which was very friendly, and welcoming. Food was great – Badir – our lovely chef fed us so well, and with such love. They have a surf shop attached and our instructors were such nice guys and really good at what they did. Saira and Sally were great and knowledgable teachers and having the pleasure of practicing outside on the terrace and on the beach was wonderful. Great surf, laid back vibes, saw more of Morocco than I would have imagined – it’s beautiful – , had an amazing treatment, laughed a lot, listened to Berber drums, met some truly gorgeous people – a diverse bunch. A treat for the boys and the soul!”
“OK I mean where do I begin!? With zero expectation and an open heart I joined this small group of beautiful people on a journey of self-discovery, laughter, zen, surf and amaaaaaaaaazing food! Saira, Sally and all the guys at the Azul guesthouse were absolutely amazing, so helpful, caring, and tending to every need with overflowing warmth and a permanent smile (Ayoub wins this one!). The chef, Badar is a huge feeder, so be sure to go easy on the first couple of courses, you’ll be fed so well during your stay. Morning yoga was pure bliss, you just couldn’t help but smile at the end (with the occasional tear); emotions couldn’t help but surface, but it felt like a truly safe space to do so. Watching the sun rise whilst flowing through sun salutations really was the most beautiful way to start the day. Now the surf! As a beginner I was excited but a tad apprehensive, especially as I didn’t feel too confident in the water. However, the boys were great coaches, and such good fun, and in no time most of us were up on our boards surfing the waves. You’re going to get addicted real quick, let me tell you! Also, be sure to sample the “Moroccan Whisky” and amazing donuts from the vendors on the beach; they’ll find you don’t worry so don’t worry about keeping an eye out for them! After a long day being battered by waves, face-planting into the sea and dragging the board through the water, the body was destroyed and to be honest, another yoga session was the last thing on my mind. I persevered however, and enjoyed theeee most amazingly peaceful and restorative yoga session I have ever experienced…ever! It was slow and calm and stretched me in all the right places – absolute bliss. In just 5 days, I made some amazing connections, laughed so much and felt truly rejuvenated by warm hearts, good food and an authentic Moroccan experience. I didn’t want to leave. I don’t want to give too much away, but if you’re in two minds about whether or not to book this, trust me….book it, you won’t regret it in the slightest.”
“A wonderful time, so friendly and relaxed. Full schedule of yoga and surfing. Lovely food and packed lunch provided. A real taste of Morrocco, would highly recommend.”
“What a completely amazing experience! As a beginner I was nervous about the yoga sessions but Saira was brilliant at bringing the group along together with plenty of options for different abilities. The retreat as a whole exceeded my expectations in every way. Thank you!”
“A fabulous week – Finding Balance – was the theme. And boy did we have plenty of opportunity to do that. A wonderful combination of surf, energising sunrise yoga, restorative evening yoga, sound healing, reiki, laughter, sandboarding, hiking, wild swimming in an oasis, lots of delicious vegetarian food, and true warm Moroccan hospitality 💕 Thank you Mellulah”
