SUMMER DRINK – SUMMER FUN

As summer heat approaches we are all looking for ways to stay hydrated. Be it pure, cold water we carry around and keep in the fridge, or iced tea we cling for.

I have been inspired with girlfriends lately to splurge, to extend and try new concoctions.

How is fresh squeezed apple juice served iced or cranberry juice with lemon.

Start sipping!!!!!

SUMMER YOGA IN MARRAKECH

As the heat approaches here in Marrakech and some of us are thinking of fleeing from it, others are not, i think of no better time than to go deeper into your yoga practice.

The heat brings flexibility to your body, so if you are looking for deeper stretches, longer hamstrings and tackling those poses you have been working on – NOW IS THE TIME.

Ongoing SUMMER YOGA IN MARRAKECH  with classes at least three days a week, in a lush serene green garden.

Want to try? Just visitiing and need to maintain your pracitice? Contact Aisha at heartofa@gmail.com for all information.

NAMASTE

YOGA WORKSHOP – 21 JUNE

Junes workshop will focus on backbends, however we will look in more details at mantra and the power of sound as well.

Sound carrying vibration inward and outward is a very intimate and rewarding way to start your yoga practice.

Pranayama, meditation, asana and discussion will all be a part of this workshop.

Namaste.

LOUNGING – SUMMER DAYS

Summer heat is upon us and the thoughts of lounging away those summer days, ideally with water nearby.

Perhaps looking for the perfect place, space after a yoga workout to cool the body, to relax, unwind and soak up some rays.

Oasiria –¬† the beach of Marrakech and ideal for families – alot of fun with kids or without.

Nikki Beach – located in Palmerie – great for lounging, good music and food

La Plage Rouge – a little further out of town, rte de Ourika, but perhaps worth it for the share size of the pool and those nice little bandana beds around it.

Murano – red lit pool great at night for ambiant music, great during day for swimming.

Perhaps whatever you choose for the next coming months, be sure it does involve a sprinkle of that water.

MOMA IN MARRAKECH

Last week Morocco was lucky and happy to receive The Muesum of Modern Art New York visiting Marrakech and one of my favourite artist friends Jean Francios Fourtou.

Creating life sized sculptures of animals, giraffes in the living, cow by the pool, monkey in the bathroom, elephant tusk around the wall, his home nestled in Bab Atlas is a playground for fantasy and expression.

Having exhibited around the world, his most recently an exhibition where he plays with shape and size, a giants house with huge bed, brooms, writingpad of what life is like seem through the eyes of a child, and a minature house with little plates, forks, penicls and vision seem through grown ups.

Truely fantastic, playful and contemplative, it is not wonder the MOMA seek his art, his house, his vision across the world.
