One of a Mind is an online magazine, which celebrates the beauty and diversity of crafts, culture and people – strongly believing that together we are more than the sum of our parts. Initiated by sustainable fashion business ABURY, One of a Mind goes beyond the stories behind ABURY’s products, the cultures they work in, and the people they work with. Together with a broad network of contributors worldwide, One of a Mind covers fields such as food, beauty and travel - telling “one of a kind” stories with an “of one mind” attitude.
Find yourself surrounded by golden dunes dancing in the wind and sparkling as caressed by the sun. Gifted with tranquility, embarking on a journey to inner peace and calm. Caught in the midst of a magical place far away from everyday routines, social constraints and expectations. We show you the way to the Moroccan Sahara desert and an unforgettable Desert Yoga Retreat…
Into the Desert: A Spiritual Berber Journey
If this is not the first time you have come across ABURY or One of a Mind then you probably know that we are in love with Morocco. The country has it all – buzzing cities, vibrant markets, stunning views of untouched nature, warm-hearted people and incredible crafts. Morocco has a wonderful setting to experience an adventure and unwind after. Be it the view of a declining sun in the magical, ancient city of Marrakech or the vastness of the Sahara desert, it is difficult for me to come up with many other environments that are as liberating and inspiring to practice yoga.
For ten days NOSADE is taking you on a spiritual holiday from Marrakesh to Erg Chebbi, the heart of the Sahara Desert. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, this Desert Yoga Retreat offers you to find inspiration, inner peace and relaxation. It combines yoga, pranayama and meditation practices with intensifying workshops, while letting you be exposed to the Berber cuisine and traditional music. In order to dive into the authentic Moroccan Berber culture, the inclusion of locals is a unique characteristic of this journey.
Apart from your yoga practice twice a day you will hike and trek through the desert, climb up the 150m high dunes, ride on the back of a camel, spend a night in a traditional Berber tent in the desert, enjoy a bonfire with traditional live music and enjoy views you have not been able to admire before. The combination of mind, body and soul practice with culture and adventure is what makes this journey truly unique!
